To be perfectly honest, I don’t pay all that much attention to Roberto Cavalli. In my head, I associate the Italian machismo-machine more with yacht parties and tiger-print silk caftans than with clothes and accessories that are relevant to my own (urban, slightly tomboyish) personal style, and I’m probably pretty far from his target customer.
Taylor Swift is not someone who pops up on PB very frequently, despite the fact that she does lay claim to a respectable designer bag stash. And yet, here’s Taylor leaving the gym in West Hollywood carrying a dark green Christian Louboutin Farida Tote – a bag I personally think is pretty underrated, though I definitely prefer the Farida in its multi-tone variations.
For an experience that’s supposed to be so lovely and luxurious, shopping for fashion can be everything from frustrating to dehumanizing, and it can be those things all too often for some shoppers.

If its Fall 2013 collection is any indication, Coach would like you to reconsider your ideas of what kind of brand it is.

I’ve never understood people who claim to hate surprises; there’s nothing better than being caught off guard by something exciting, and that’s exactly what happened this morning when we encountered the Kate Spade Surprise Sale. Markdowns reach up to 75% on an awesome selection of Spade’s handbags, accessories, jewelry and apparel, so suffice it to say that you won’t find prices better than these anywhere else. Shop quickly, though – the sale ends October 30, 2013.
Pretty Little Liars actress Ashley Benson was recently spotted leaving La Conversation Cafe in West Hollywood with an unidentified pooch companion. If her bag is giving you a little deja vu, you’re not alone – that’s the Saint Laurent Sac Du Jour Bag, and yes, it’s very much like a Saint Laurent Birkin.
For many of us, Halloween was probably our first occasion to go out into the world clutching a bag. It might have been a bag meant for candy instead of a purse for our daily necessities, but a relationship to accessories has to start somewhere, and it might as well be with a sack full of chocolate and sugar.
