I’d like to see the Furla Ninfea-Grande Chain Shopper in person before I make any definitive pronouncements, but I think it might be my favorite spring and summer bag that I’ve seen so far this year.

I’ve never been a big Dooney & Bourke fan, but if they keep making bags as chic and well-edited as the Dooney & Bourke Santa Croce Short Handle Leather Shopper, I’m going to have to seriously reconsider my stance on the brand.

Ah, the beach. I have to say, I can’t get enough of the beach. There is something about the combination of sun, sand and surf that I love. And of course, when it comes to the beach, you have to have a great handbag to carry all your beach stuff in.

Holy poop, y’all. I love this bag. The Rebecca Minkoff Devote Belted Top Tote is, in a word, awesome. For me, at least. It’s a big ol’ hobo, made of great leather, in a bright color, with understated accents and JUST ONE STRAP.

Wooohooo Friday! Nothing tops off a Friday quite like a sale. If you are in the mood for a little online shopping, you should definitely head over to Ideeli and check out what they have going on today.

For most of you, winter is in full force. Our friends in Ohio rubbed in our face that they had a snow day at Ohio State yesterday, which is literally unheard of at The Ohio State University.

I like shiny things. This is a fact. Ever since I was a little girl, sparkles, shine, and glitz have always caught my eye. I can’t really put my finger on it, but for some reason whenever I see something shiny, I always have to stop and look.

So, I have a cold. It’s one of those colds that just seems to linger and linger. One minute I think I am feeling better and the next I feel like I should curl up on the couch with a cup of hot cocoa and a great movie.

When I think of British accessory design, I think of clean, straight lines, limited adornment, and functional design and color choices. The Brits, even in their most avant garde incarnations (Alexander McQueen, anyone?) know that a bag has certain duties that it must perform, and it’s kind of useless if the bag doesn’t perform them.

Our friend Marc Jacobs sure does love to court trouble. He overshares about his personal life, tattoos random things on his body, and dates more men that most college sorority girls (don’t take offense, ladies – I, too, was a college sorority girl).
