Valentino’s diffusion line, Red Valentino, is really lovely. I mean that. With bows, pastels and ladylike details, the Red Valentino manages to capture the elegant, ladylike feel of the main collection, but at a lower price point. Today at 12 PM ET on MYHABIT, get an even better deal and save during the Red Valentino flash sale.



I feel like I know you guys at this point, so I’m going to be straight with you: I’m feeling a little bit under the weather today. (Wash your hands and take your vitamins, kids, it’s really going around this winter.) With that in mind, I’d like to get directly to the heart of the matter: it’s Friday, and that means we have some bags that you might want to buy on the (relatively) cheap.

Perfect Pairs: Margiela and Saint Laurent
Perfect Pairs

With New York Fashion Week coming up in just a few weeks, I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what we can expect to see on attendees at Lincoln Center. Even an untrained eye can spot the high-powered magazine editors in the milieu; there’s a level of refinement that they’ve mastered that few others possess.

Drew Barrymore promotes her new makeup line called 'Flower' on 'Good Morning America' in NYC

We’re continuing our Birkin-less celeb post spree this week with a host of vastly more likable celebs carrying the best, the brightest, and the most unique designer bags. Here’s Drew Barrymore in all of her gloriousness (and in full-on boho “new mommy” mode), stepping out in NYC with an Opening Ceremony OC NY Bag.

Three Neutral Bags

When I look at my handbag collection, I always find that I am lacking when it comes to neutral colors. I’m usually drawn to bold shades, but having a great neutral bag is mighty important, and I am now on the hunt for one myself.

Amanda Seyfried

This may sound a little bit weird, but I’m really glad that Amanda Seyfried is famous. I’ve been a fan of hers since the halcyon days of Mean Girls, in which she stole every scene she was in, and I’ve been silently rooting for her success ever since.

Valentino Rockstud Tote

Season after season, without fail, Valentino has adorned leather bags great and small with the tiny silver pyramids known affectionately as Rockstuds. Sometimes they’re just an accent, sometimes they take up the whole bag, but they’re always there, and until recently, they were always the same.

Celebrities arrive at the Dior Fashion Show in Paris, France

Here’s the ever-elegant Princess Charlene of Monaco on her way in to the Dior Haute Couture show in Paris over the weekend. You’ll notice, of course, that the princess is carrying a black quilted Dior Lady Dior Tote.

BCBG Max Azria Bags-2

BCBG Max Azria is a name we all know, but I’m not sure I’ve ever really looked to the brand for its accessories. That’s all going to change now, though, because after playing with some BCBG bags last week, I’m hooked.

Yellow bags

For the first time this winter, it is really, genuinely, bone-chillingly cold in New York City. Yesterday, I got my puffer coat out of the closet for the first time since last winter; I had been surviving since November on just a wool coat, but sub-20-degree temperatures made me a holdout no longer.

Proenza Schouler Graffiti Print Leather PS1
Proenza Schouler

At this point, you guys know me, and you know that I’m an absolute sucker for a seasonal printed Proenza Schouler PS1. The bag I carry almost every day is a digital blanket-print version from Fall 2011, and every time Proenza makes a beautiful patterned textile and doesn’t do a PS1 version of it, I weep silently.

Gucci Soho Shoulder Bag

It’s true, I love Gucci. I always have. When I was in college, one of my first major purchases came down to Gucci and Fendi, and even though I went with the Fendi Spy bag at the time, Gucci still holds a special place in my heart.
