Balenciaga-Papier-A6-Zip-Around-Bag

Bag: Balenciaga Papier A6 Zip-Around Bag

Price: $1,595 via MATCHESFASHION.COM

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: This bag wears a lot of metaphorical hats. It’s neutral, but the blue edging gives it a brightness. It’s small, but not too small to carry what you need.

Online-Shopping-Preferences

I have a confession to make: I’m obsessed with free shipping and free returns. I don’t need an intervention; my obsession, unlike most, is completely rational. (According to me.)

Chrissy-Teigen-Givenchy-Antigona-Bag

Every brand has its clientele, and among celebrities, Givenchy tends to be super popular among super models. The brand’s streetwear-meets-runway approach to fashion fits in well with the dominant “model off duty” look, and the Givenchy’s bags in particular have found a home in the fans of practically every publicly recognizable model on the planet.

Saint-Laurent-Monogramme-East-West-Tote

Saint Laurent doesn’t do the splashy bag launches and re-launches every season that some brands do. Hedi Slimane has built his company’s popularity on trying to make the best versions of the things every woman already wants in her closet, whether that’s the perfect little going-out bag or the perfect pair of Chelsea boots to wear six months out of the year.

Scandal-Season-4-Finale-Recap

I’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news, at least for me, is that I’m currently on the first real vacation of my adult life, and I didn’t even have to bring my laptop. The bad news is, of course, that I can’t recap Scandal without a laptop, which is kind of a bummer.

Fendi-Petite-2Jours-Bag

There might be a better way to start your week than with a discount, but we certainly can’t think of any right now, and with that in mind, we have some good news. We’ve teamed up with one of our favorite retailers, LUISAVIAROMA, to get you an extra 15% off Spring and Summer 2015 collection.

Carry-On-Bags

Hi Megs and Amanda!

I’ve been looking for the perfect travel tote in the past year or so. I’ve purchased a few that have fared well for business (Michael Kors, Cole Haan, etc.), but finding that perfect carryon tote/bag for vacation or long haul trips has eluded me.

Rihanna-Dior-Diorama-Handbag-Campaign-1

A few months ago, Dior announced that Rihanna would be the brand’s newest face, and the brand’s first black campaign star of all time. Yesterday, the first images from the pop superstar’s campaign hit the Internet, and they’re gorgeous.

Rihanna’s campaign is for the new Christian Dior Diorama Bag, and the images, shot by Steven Klein, are centered around a secret garden theme.

Hermes-Special-Order-Horseshoe-Stamp-Bicolor-Crocodile-Birkin-Bag-30cm

Fashion can be a lot of things, but when it’s at its very best, it’s about fantasy. We all have bags in the backs of our minds that we’d love to see in our closets, and for many of us, those bags are exotics, special orders or hard-to-find pieces from brands whose wares are extremely scarce to begin with.

Beach-Packing-List

Late in the evening on a Thursday night in February, I snapped. We were smack in the middle of the coldest winter of my life, and I was up late editing a Scandal recap that just didn’t want to fall into place.
