Imagine going to #NYFW in style with full VIP treatment including getting personally styled by the designers themselves the day before the big show, staying at the hot new posh Redbury Hotel and even getting accessorized by Edie Parker with the iconic Lara gold confetti clutch. Show More Summary

A Tribute to Prince: Purple Party

I couldn’t even begin to count the number of memories I made in junior high in the '80s listening to Prince's music. Not many know this, but aside from his own songs, he also wrote hits for the likes of Chaka Khan (“I Feel for You”),...Show More Summary

The 10 Essential Pieces for a Long Weekend

It might sound crazy, but you can go on a long weekend trip with everything comfortably packed in a small 22” carryon and still look perfectly cute every day – with only 10 things. Packing smart is different from packing light. You can pack light by wearing the same things every day and looking like you badly need a shower as a result. Show More Summary

Top 5 Festival-Ready Pieces for Real Life

Off the grass and onto the sidewalk! Or into the office, for that matter. As we go into Weekend two of Coachella, where even more fringe-coated, cutoff-heavy, midriff-baring looks will be released upon us, I’ve been thinking about how to convert our festival favorites into real-life staples to wear again and again.

Seven Pieces You Need to Update Your Wardrobe

Spring is the season when our sartorial insecurities come out to play. Everywhere you look, some chic young thing is sporting the freshest of florals and the softest of pastels, while you’re still wondering if you emptied too much of your closet during spring cleaning. Show More Summary

Elle Macpherson x Custom Hermès Birkin: The Supermodel Signature

These days, it seems that a Birkin alone is not enough to satisfy top models. To stand apart from the Hermès-clad crowd, a custom Birkin is the accessory to have. Heidi Klum carried her camo version back in January, and now Elle Macpherson is giving us even greener eyes with her zebra-print iteration. Show More Summary

Frugal Friday: Ladylike Top Handle Bags

By the time Friday rolls around (and it sure took its time), you feel tired and frazzled, but much like the weekend, another bag is always waiting to offer you a sense of renewal. Plop down that less-organized-than-it-was-on-Monday work tote and get yourself one of these ladylike top handles. Show More Summary

An Interview with Chris Benz: Bill Blass and Beyond

When it was revealed last year that Chris Benz, he of the neon mesh details, gutsy tropical prints, and skewed ladylike designs (he launched his own line when he was just 25 years old in 2007, and it lived for five years), was taking the helm at Bill Blass, it came as something of a surprise.

Lanvin Lacquered Resin Minaudière: Clutch It Good

Clutch it like a winner. Of all the clutches I’ve come across, this is seriously the coolest one I have ever seen! A hard-as-nails minaudière with a logo done right (and you know that doesn’t come along every day), it’s got a fresh feature that comes as a total surprise. Show More Summary

Street Style Trends: Oversized Saddle and Top-Handle Bags

I’m flying to Paris tomorrow to complete the final leg of Fashion Month, and, as usual, I can’t wait to see all of the bags – on both the runways and the street. So far I’ve noticed a couple of strong trends emerging, for the fashion crowd and celebrities alike: oversized saddle and top-handle bags. Show More Summary

Shopbop Spring Sale: Up to 25% Off!

I’ve done my spring cleaning, so now I’m on to wardrobe restocking! This may seem counterproductive, but when you take into account the appearance of new trends each season, it’s really more like a fun necessity. '90s-era slip dresses...Show More Summary

Nancy Gonzalez Small Crocodile Top-Handle Satchel: Pretty in Pastel

We love pastels, but they can be tricky. If the hue is even the slightest bit off or styled in the wrong way, you end up looking like you’re a six-year-old out in the yard hunting for Easter eggs. That said, there’s little that brings a greater sense of renewal than pulling out your lightest and brightest accessories for spring... Show More Summary

Balance Your Dueling Personalities: Tough Vs. Dainty

Your wardrobe reflects your personality and for all our own varied tones and moods, our bags should have just as many facets. The demure, feminine girl sometimes gets taken over by a rough and tumble attitude, and vice versa. Isn't that what makes being a woman so fabulously fun? Make sure your bags show how are you feeling each day. Show More Summary

Sweaty Betty’s Reversible Leggings Give You Bang for Your Buck

It's no secret that the market for athletic wear has exploded and that prices are anything but frugal, which is why Sweaty Betty's line of reversible leggings caught my eye. Priced at around $120 - $175 depending on the style, the pants are designed to be worn two totally different ways (usually either a vibrant print or a solid black side out)... Show More Summary

Top Bags Under $200: Save Yourself

It’s so easy to get caught up with all the high-end designer bags that continuously get released – too easy, actually. So easy it can get boring! There are moments when nothing feels more satisfying than nabbing a great bag that looks far pricier and prettier than its frugal price tag. Show More Summary

An Interview with Corina Stefirta of Sage Femme: Femme Fatale

When I came across this new brand, I instantly fell in love. Sage Femme’s bags have clean lines, perfected symmetry, and classic shapes with distinctive detailing: all necessary hallmarks of Snob worthiness. Corina Stefirta founded Sage Femme after years of working at Tod's, and her experience shows. Show More Summary

Marc Jacobs Fall 2016 Runway Show: Watch It Live!

Between the freezing cold temps and my bag being stolen, it’s been one of the more difficult NYFWs to get through. That said, I’ve been loving so many of the shows I’ve been to, and Marc Jacob’s is guaranteed to be one of the best. If...Show More Summary

The Biggest Trend in Bags Today

Right now, the overarching trend in bags is everything optimistic and fun. It’s not the shape that makes a bag a must-have anymore. Instead of specific silhouettes, it’s all about the vivacious and expressive. Think details that catch the eye for bags that are personality-driven and tell a story – so you can tell your own story with your bag. Show More Summary

Top 6 Valentines: Sealed with a Kiss

Sometimes a kiss is more than a kiss (the best ones are, anyway!). That’s certainly the case with my new NH 1300 necklace from Nouvel Heritage. I love the idea that you never own jewelry; you’re merely holding it for the next generation. Show More Summary

Prada Saffiano Cuir Double Bag: Double Shot

I don't usually recommend fixing what isn't broken, but the execution of the new Double (pronounced “dooblay”) bag is nothing short of pure Prada perfection. Now my go-to daily tote is better than ever with an updated look as sumptuous as it is chic. Show More Summary
