In Case You Missed It

Somehow it’s going to be August by the time we see you again on Monday, which seems impossible until you remember that summer always flies by as New Yorkers hurtle straight back to the inevitable winter that it feels like just ended.

We are huge fans of Rihanna’s style, even though her handbag choices have gotten a tad predictable lately because of her very lucrative endorsement deals with Dior. But, Ri-Ri steps out in a different pair of shoes almost every night, and her truly eccentric designer shoe choices never disappoint.

Bag Deals

We’ve come once again to Friday morning, and that means it’s time once again for an installment of our weekly roundup of bag deals. Retailers have mostly moved on from sale season (except Nordstrom, whose beloved Anniversary Sale is still going strong), but that just means the prices we’ll see in sale sections are as low as they’ll be all season.

Real Talk

This is one of those posts that’s hard to know where to begin. What I’m about to delve into is long and personal, with details that may make some of you wonder why I chose to share so much, but people close to me know how open I am.

What Mansur Gavriel has accomplished in its short time in the handbag market is extremely impressive. The brand rocketed to success quickly after its debut because not only are the designs chic, simple and functional, but their prices aren’t sky-high.

When you think of the ideal Versace woman, you probably imagine someone Amazonianly tall, endlessly leggy, extremely blonde and curvy, but in a fashion way. A supermodel, but more in the vein of Victoria’s Secret than the alien babydolls preferred by high fashion brands over the past 15 years.

One of the aspects I miss most about living in NYC full-time is the constant access to sample sales. I lived down the street from one of the main sample sale hubs, and sometimes walking home from work or a meeting meant popping into whatever sample sale was currently happening and snagging crazy deals.

When the Chanel Cruise 2017 Cuba collection debuted, I immediately started to hunt for images of the bags. The usual sites we check for photos didn’t have closeups of the accessories, and I wanted to see what Chanel did for this monumental show–the first of its kind for an international brand in Cuba.

Christian Louboutin

Ornate, unique embellishments are one of the many reasons that Christian Louboutin‘s loyal clientele keeps coming back for more, and in the designer’s Fall 2016 collection, there’s no shortage of detail in sight. We’ve already showed you some shoes from Louboutin’s Pre-Fall collection, and now that the Fall 2016 bags and shoes are making their way to online retailers, it’s time to check out the highlights from Louboutin’s latest collection.

The Dior Runway Bag was the first big accessory debut of the post-Raf Simons era at Dior (on the runway, as the name would suggest), and I was, admittedly, a little suspicious of it. That was at least partly because of my immense affection for the bags created during Simons’s tenure at the legendary French design house and sadness over his voluntary departure, but it was also motivated by the bag’s proportions and how out of place it seemed with current trends.
