Rebecca Minkoff has expanded her growing collection to incorporate small accessories as a staple. Her upcoming line of tech accessories is entirely cool (more to come on that soon), but one of her most sought-after designs is her pouches. The simplistic coin wallet is turned into the Rebecca Minkoff cool girl must-have with quirky wording on the front.

Do any of you remember the first time that you realized that the world could be a thoroughly disappointing place? I don’t remember the specific instance, but I do remember the sensation, and every time some aspect of my life spirals beyond my ability to control it, I’m right back in that moment, disenchanted all over again.
Sample sales are one of the greatest shopping advantages that New Yorkers have, and starting tomorrow, we have one that bag lovers are going to want to check out. Our friends at Botkier are having their first offline sample sale in quite sometime, and if you’re able to stop by, you can score 50-70% off true samples, exclusive styles and some of your Botkier favorites.
Just like Hermes bag collectors, those who love Hermes scarves patiently wait to track down the ultimate scarf of their dreams. It’s easy to see why: Hermes is known for its gorgeous patterns and divine colors on its silk work. MyHabit pulled scarves from past and present for this archive event.
I’ve always been attracted to the idea of a briefcase. Perhaps its because they’re the most prototypical of the masculine bags, or perhaps they’re intriguing to me because they’re the type of accessory I’m least likely to ever carry myself. Either way, the sleek, businesslike simplicity of a briefcase never ceases to pique my interest; more so than any other type of men’s bag, a man carrying a beautiful brief looks mature and successful in the most attractive of ways.
From time to time, we like to take a look at some of the lesser-known products that the world’s biggest brands stock on their websites. From pencils to flasks to wine accouterments, Hermes has always excelled at these nifty little pieces, and the brand certainly has a following that’s dedicated enough to snap up whatever it is it manufactures in order to round out their collections.
Megs and I? Balenciaga fangirls. Even our new marketing director Hilary is getting in on the act – a Balencaiga Giant City Bag was the first thing added to her wardrobe after she joined our team a few months ago. The brand is best known for its Motorcycle Bags in a litany of colors, which are refreshed every season and sometimes fiercely sought by collectors for years afterward.
No, you haven’t traveled in some kind of time warp back to Monday. (How cruel would that be?) Yes, these are man bags. Just like men’s oversized watches, oxfords and loafers have become a trendy (not to mention totally chic) option for women in recent years, a men’s bag can also add a fresh, slightly unexpected element to an ensemble.
Ever since Clare Waight Keller took the top creative spot at Chloe, I’ve been an unrepentant fangirl. Waight Keller has required an incredibly short turnaround time to set the brand back on a chic path that many had felt it lost after the exit of Phoebe Philo several years ago, and the collections, from ready-to-wear to accessories to shoes, have all improved by leaps and bounds in just over a year.
Bravo did it to us again last night. Instead of making one episode about the buildup to a not-particularly-interesting event and then the event itself, they promised they’d do that, and then they split it into two. That means that we watched a bunch of people doing absolutely nothing last night while they waited around for Gretchen to perform in Vegas, and then she didn’t actually perform.
