May-2015-Best-Post

This month included both a holiday weekend and an unofficial season change, so, as always, we forgive you if you haven’t read everything we’ve slaved over in this hot Internet kitchen. With new fall lookbooks and Cruise 2016 collections popping up left and right, though, you might have missed something well worth going back to see.

5-Summer-Beauty-Tools

Every season has its own beauty challenges, and as we sweat our way into summer, you’re likely rediscovering all the frizzy hair and calloused feet that cold weather lets us forget about for a while. In an effort to help you solve your problems (which are also our problems), we did a little research and came up with five indispensable tools to help you look your best until Labor Day.

Bag-Deals-May-29

Sale season comes but twice a year, and right now, we’re in the thick of it. We gave you the rundown on 30 incredible bag deals when the sales launched on Wednesday, and now that dust has settled and retailers have added some more stuff to their offerings, we’re back with 22 more.

Gold-and-Diamond-Apple-Watch

When the Apple Watch pricing structure was announced, I couldn’t titter at the people who were predicting the downfall of western culture because it came in a $10,000 gold version. When you work in fashion, you know better than to think $10,000 is where luxury goods end.

Rihanna-Christian-Dior-Diorama-Bag

The perks of mega-celebrity are too numerous to list; you can get into any restaurant you want without a reservation, boxes of free stuff arrive at your door every day, you’ve got enough money that you could quit on the spot and never work again.

Givenchy-Valentino-Leopard

Sometimes it’s easy to trace a print, material or size trend back to a particular source, but other times, it seems like a bunch of big designers met behind our backs and simply decided all to do the same thing at the same time.

Valentino-1973-VaVaVoom-Shoulder-Bag

Sale season is great, but it’s also overwhelming; there are a lot of directions to look in, literally thousands of bags to sift through and decisions to be made. Because we’re here to help, I spent yesterday combing through the newly launched sale sections at Saks, Barneys, MATCHESFASHION.COM, ferfetch.com, SSENSE, Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman to find the best of the new discounts.

The-Many-Bags-of-Cannes

If you are in the mood to ease into the post-holiday work week with photos of a bunch of rich, gorgeous supermodels walking up and down yacht gangplanks in the French Riviera, then boy do I have some good news for you.

Net-a-Porter-Sale-May-2015

The Net-a-Porter sale is practically legendary in online circles, and it only happens twice a year. Luckily for all of us, one of those instances happens to be today. Starting now, you can shop up to 50% off a huge selection of bags, shoes, apparel and accessories, all from Net-a-Porter‘s expert designer edit.
