Hanneli Mustaparta was recently spotted taking a leisurely stroll with friends in NYC with a Chloe Baylee Bag in tow. Hanneli is an extremely well rounded fashion type: she’s a blogger, street style star, occasional Vogue contributor and former model. (And yet I still find this outfit…most curious.) Her beautiful, behind-the-scenes fashion blog Hanneli is what hastened her transition from cover girl to fashion commentator.
I am currently coming to you live from South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, where I’ve had lots of opportunities to eat things that make me want to unbutton my pants but not so many opportunities to watch last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. (Side note: Why is hotel television technology stuck somewhere in 1998?) Because of that, we’ll sadly have no recap for last night’s season finale, but because season finales are often so juicy, we wanted to give you guys a spot to gossip, choose sides and reflect on the season that was.
Here’s a little something (or a lot of something) to make your afternoon a little bit more stylish. Our friends at THE OUTNET just launched a huge online clearance, which includes up to 85% off a huge selection of designer apparel, shoes, accessors and (of course) handbags. Shop quickly, though – with most things more than half off, the best pieces will disappear before you know it.
Paris is the last stop during the long fashion month stretch, and I always think fashion people save their best for last. The streets of Paris are lined with the most fashionable men and women from around the world, looking to take in the shows and show off their goods. We gave you the best bags of NYFW (days 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8), and now we have our favorite bag shots from the streets of Paris Fashion Week.
Several years ago, The Row put backpacks back on our handbag radar with the buzzworthy $34,000 Alligator Backpack, and ever since, backpacks have been popping up all over the fashion industry. I didn’t go crazy for The Row’s backpack, or any backpack after that – as bags, they simply remind me of my awkward middle school wardrobe. As of right now, though, this Yliana Yepez’s Capri Python backpack is quickly making me rethink my previous stance.
Lindsay Lohan took a minute to pose for paps and fans outside her Soho apartment last week. On her arm is a eye-catching, bright orange Hermes Soft Kelly. Lindsay’s new reality show on Oprah’s OWN network just premiered this past Sunday, and it’s put Lindsay back in the public eye again after a lengthy (Oprah-enforced) absence. While her lifestyle habits have hopefully changed for the better, some things always stay the same: her taste in handbags remains as high-end as ever.
For the second installment of PurseBlog Eats, we ventured down to the Lower East Side of Manhattan to pay a visit to The Fat Radish. Upon arrival, the restaurant provides an immediate sense of warmth and coziness – it’s the kind of soft-lit candle glow that feels completely effortless and genuine. The walls are decorated with hooks for customers’ coats and perfectly aligned filtered photographs.
Over on TalkShoes we went through our Instagram to see all of your Manolo themed shoestagrams. We rounded up our top favorites, and let’s just say we were swooning! Alessandra Ambrosio was spotted wearing a covetable pair of Valentino pumps and we looked at the shoes from Nicolas Ghesquière’s first collection for Louis Vuitton. We even styled a pair of René Caovilla sandals that is desperately making us wish for warmer weather. We want to hear your thoughts!
