Scandal-Season-4-Episode-20-Recap

You guys, I’m ready to make a somewhat surprising declaration: Last night’s episode of Scandal was good. Not “good for this season,” or “good relative to all the bad episodes lately,” but legitimately, objectively good. The stuff going on felt exciting and like we were continuing to move through the plot, and even though last week’s episode had a pretty significant red herring, this week didn’t slow down when it reversed course.

There ain’t no party like a Chanel party because a Chanel party is full of beautiful people with even more beautiful handbags. As they do every year, Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld descended on the Tribeca Film Festival to host the Chanel Artists Dinner, which celebrates Lagerfeld’s favorite people: actresses and other creatives, mostly (but not always) of the indie variety.

Bag-Deals-April-24

It’s time to celebrate another work week completed with another round of bag deals, and this week, we’re clearly ready for spring. We found a bunch of bags both bright and pale to suit whatever your warm-weather style might be, but if your preference (or your office dress code) runs more toward neutrals, we have several of those as well.

As the weather has steadily warmed in New York City, I’ve heard a familiar refrain from my friends: Ugh, my feet are so gross from winter. Ugh, I need to get a pedicure. New York is especially difficult on feet because of all the walking involved in living here, and the task of undoing all the winter’s snow-booted damage can seem daunting.

Chanel has some much-discussed plans to venture into in-house online retail, but until September 2016 at the earliest, you’ll still have to get creative if you want to buy Chanel bags and accessories online. That’s why we think you’ll want to jump at the What Goes Around Comes Around vintage Chanel trunkshow currently happening on Moda Operandi; it’s full of pre-owned bags both vintage and recent, in addition to the brand’s iconic costume jewelry and small accessories, all just a click away.

When the Fendi Bag Bug came along a few seasons ago, it practically created its own fashion category: the bag accessory. Although bag charms had had pockets of popularity here and there, especially in Asian markets, a high-end worldwide trend like the one going right now is something of a first, and consumers have more options than ever.
