80’s Redux: Foley + Corinna Exclusive Splatter bags

I grew up in the 80’s and am not ashamed to admit I tried every tacky trend possible, and LIKED IT. So I get excited when I see those same or similar trends being revisited in fashion today. Like jelly shoes (so much more chic; still just as sweaty though); acid-washed denim (depends on how you wear it but you CAN still rock it fiercely), and paint-splattered fashion (back then it looked accidental, ...

Marni channels Mod, 60’s-style with this graphic print tote

The era of Mod fashion has always been one I was into. To this day, I love a good A-line minidress with a mock neck and some interesting colorblock graphic prints. À la Twiggy. I’m immediately sold on anything that has a geometric print, or contrasting colors accented by sharp lines. Which is one of the reasons I love Marni so much. Everything from their wood platform heels to their geometric ...

Haute bag of the week: Alexander Wang Small Emile Tote

We love Alexander Wang for all of the edgy, downtown-girl stuff that he designs. And we love this bag even more because it brings to mind another designing Alexander we loved – McQueen. This Alexander Wang Small Emile Tote feels like the two collaborated on it and designed it together – even though we know it’s not possible, but it just has that feel. It brings to mind a cross between ...

Haute bag of the week: Chloé Madeleine Tote in Green Tea

Pantone may have named Tangerine Tango the 2012 color of the year but I’ve been seeing an explosion of mint green that makes me think differently. While last year was all about colorblock, this year is all about neon brights and pastels. And the ruling pastel right now is mint green. I love the simplicity of the color, and how it seems to pair so well with neutrals and brights. The key to wearing ...

Haute bag of the week: kate spade new york “eat cake for breakfast” terry tote

Cast of Vices Corner Store Leather Tote is the most luxe ‘takeout’ bag ever

Recently I read that designer paper shopping bags were becoming the new ‘It’ bags, with ones from stores like Chanel fetching hundreds of dollars on eBay! And in recent years, even Bloomingdale’s has turned its popular medium brown bags into PVC-printed tote bags. So it’s no surprise that the white plastic restaurant bag would also soon be turned into a designer handbag. Folks ...

Longchamp x Mary Katrantzou AND Jeremy Scott

Longchamp is best known for those ubiquitous nylon tote bags you see all the college girls carrying around campus. But it’s their handbag collaborations that really pique our interest. They’ve got not one, but two recent collaborations, with London-based designer Mary Katrantzou and the other with American designer Jeremy Scott. The limited-edition release of Longchamp x Mary Katrantzou ...

This Marni Leather Tote is understated and oh-so-chic

Marni accessories are typically on the quirkier side, and that’s just why we love the brand. The usual Marni look consists of playful printed clothes, interestingly sculpted bangles, funky bib necklaces and chunky wood platform heels. Oh, and we can’t forget about the infamous Marni Balloon bag. But Marni apparently can do understated very well too. Case in point: this Marni Leather Tote. The ...

Haute buy: Reed Krakoff Atlantique Tote Bag

I can tell I’m getting old because my handbag tastes are changing. Back in the day, I was obsessed with logo-covered handbags, but no more. Now I’m into structured leather totes without all the ‘bells and whistles’. Reed Krakoff (design director of Coach, as well is his namesake line) is one designer who creates the most simplistic, yet amazingly eye-catching and meticulously ...

The blogger’s bag: ‘Fashion Foie Gras Tote’ by Coach

Blogger fashion collaborations are becoming the norm and Coach is just one brand that has been embracing bloggers in their recent campaigns. The latest?
