Olivia Wilde stroll thru west village

Today we have Olivia Wilde, walking her adorable, ginormous dog with a gal pal in NYC’s West Village. Her tiny little black bag is a Proenza Schouler PS1 Pouch. I love this micro-bag – it’s dainty, yet somehow slightly masculine; hardly bigger than a large wallet, yet strangely practical.

10-Best-London-Fashion-Week

In some ways, London Fashion Week is my favorite, season after season. It’s the shortest of all the cities – something of a Fashion Long Weekend, if we’re being honest – and in that space, it packs in tons of incredibly talented young designers who are doing bold, sometimes even brave, things with clothing, alongside a few bold-face names like Burberry and, this season, Tom Ford.

The Many Bags of Lauren Conrad

I mean this with all due respect: In 2013, it’s hard to believe that Lauren Conrad is still legitimately famous. In many ways, actually, that’s a compliment. Reality TV stardom is notoriously tricky to turn into a lasting career, but by all indications, Conrad seems to be making a pretty decent go of it.

Hermes Blue Crocodile Birkin

A long time ago, I ranted a bit about why terming the purchase of a bag as an “investment” was probably a bit silly, not to mention inaccurate, and the kind of marketing terminology that encourages consumers to overspend on goods that depreciate even more rapidly than cars.

American personal trainer Jillian Michaels in New York

We know Jillian Michaels isn’t a stranger to weightlifting, so it’s no surprise that she’s handling her giant Louis Vuitton Mon Monogram Keepall like it’s a clutch. The Mon Monogram is a customized version of the aptly named Louis Vuitton Keepall – each bag is personalized with your initials and up to two colored stripes of your choosing.

Fashion Week Real Talk

As quickly as it snuck up on us, Fashion Week has left. It happens every season – fashion week comes and goes in the blink of an eye, and we want to be able to share a bit of the madness that we experience with you.

Valentino Jewel Plexiglass Butterfly Clutch

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from covering the evenings bags that stars carried at the Golden Globes, Grammys and SAG Awards this season, it’s that relatively few celebs are willing to take a chance with an interesting clutch for a stroll down the red carpet.

Mulberry Fall 2013 Handbags (20)

Mulberry makes full lines of ready-to-wear, shoes and accessories, of course, but we and they both know what everyone wants to see every season: the bags. Mulberry has been an enormous reputation off of its stylish, functional, totally covetable leather day bags, and by all indications from the Mulberry Fall 2013 show, the brand has no desire to change that.

Valentino Camo Event

I’ve been a longtime Valentino fan, and since the brand hit handbag paydirt with its Rockstud collection, it’s been fun to watch how the accessories continue to evolve. When I first heard the news that the brand would release a camouflage collection, I immediately felt excitement.
