Celebrity Style

This post is almost a continuous stream of red carpet photos, with exactly two interruptions. (Some celebs didn’t attend film premieres this week, or maybe they were still wearing great shoes while doing other stuff, but that’s allowed.) In quasi-related news, it has recently dawned on me that Lily James and Lily Collins are two different people, and the former is dating one of my celebrity boyfriends, which instantly makes her my celebrity nemesis.

Bag Deals

We’ve made it to yet another Friday, and your reward, as always, is another heaping helping of bag deals from our favorite brands and retailers. Even though shops have largely moved on to spring arrivals, there are still plenty of great deals to be had if you’re willing to look.

Miu Miu Club Bag

There was a time when I loved Miu Miu bags even more than Prada, and you could spot the bags being carried all over the place. The brand’s handbag production seemed to go to the back burner for a bit, though, and how I felt about them went along with it.

No matter what your Facebook relationship status reads, Valentine’s Day can be quite stressful. First, you have to figure out how you’re going to spend those love-filled 24 hours. Then, once you’ve got a plan, it’s time to figure out what are you going to give your special someone.

Trends

The calendar might read February, but in the fashion industry, spring has sprung. Take a peek in the New Arrivals section of your favorite retailer and you’ll likely see scores of Spring 2016 pre-orders; if you tend to like seasonal embellishments and variations instead of basic black, it’s time to start making some decisions about what your wardrobe will look like in the coming months.

News

Yesterday, Racked writer Chavie Lieber took a deep dive into the history of a bag most of us have probably had in our closets at one time or another: the Longchamp Le Pliage Tote. If it feels like the simple, functional Le Pliage has been unfalteringly popular with everyone you know for years, you’re right: they’re everywhere, but in a very careful way.

Saint Laurent

When the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour first came out, Amanda shared that it wasn’t for her. I took a liking to it and my feelings toward the bag have only grown over time. Saint Laurent hit it big with this bag, and it’s proven to be accepted into the handbag world and given a permanent slot in the must-have bag category.
