For the past few seasons, Frida Giannini, Creative Director of Gucci, has brought the house back to the forefront of our minds. With a steely yet sexy combination, Gucci Fall 2013 focuses on constructed silhouettes with femme fatale touches on every accessory. The color scheme is deep and sultry, including wine, rust, moss green and cerulean blue. With great attention paid to detail, the accessories steal the show (along with the evening wear).

I love every video we put together for Fall 2013 New York Fashion Week, but this might be my favorite finished product. Most fashion fans associate Herve Leger with bandage dresses, and yes, there are plenty of those, but there’s also plenty more. The runway collection is more intricate, with great attention paid to detail.
I could spend time putting it all into words, but this video will bring Herve Leger Fall 2013 to life in a magical way, which is just what I felt when attending the show.
We know you get a lot of Hermes bags on PurseBlog, but typically we show you the coveted Birkin. Today, I want to show you the just as well-known Hermes Kelly in a version you may have never seen before: with outside zipper pockets. This is the Hermes Kelly Lakis, and it first hit stores in 2006. The Kelly was the ladylike predecessor to the Birkin, with a single top handle that gives this structured purse a very high-end feel.
I’m not a big makeup person. In fact, I typically don’t wear it. I am, however, a big fan of taking care of my skin, so every morning and evening I go through a routine which will hopefully help keep my face looking young and fresh for years to come. When it came to finding a beauty bag, I decided I had to go with Chanel, because what’s more classic than a quilted Chanel cosmetic pouch?
Tibi is one of my absolute favorite brands, and each season I anxiously await the show to see what creative director Amy Smilovic has in store for us. Her aesthetic fits my everyday style so well that I would be happy, happy, happy to wear her clothes all day, every day.
The Tibi Fall 2013 show took place in a new venue and took us on a mod journey.
A few weeks ago, I realized I hadn’t bought a new bag in a while. Don’t get me wrong, I still absolutely love bags; at this point, though, my collection is expansive and I’m surrounded by bags every single day, both of which help curb my consumerism. However, I started to get an itch and realized it was because I wanted a new bag.
I’ve been obsessed with Olympia Le-Tan book clutches for what seems like forever. Since I first discovered these handmade accessories, it has been love. With a wide variety of options stemming from many works of classic literature, if you’re a book worm and a bag lover, this brand is a match made in heaven.
I always check Net-A-Porter to see the latest arrivals, and usually, Le-Tan’s book clutches sell out as soon as they show up.
I have the sweetest sweet tooth out there – it rivals that of almost anyone I meet. Pair that with my love of accessories, and it seems that Judith Leiber is speaking to me directly with the bags above. As soon as I found the Judith Leiber Hot Fudge Ice Cream Sundae Minaudiere, it was as though I was one of Pavlov’s dogs.
Today we take you with us to Chadwick Bell, a personal friend and an amazing designer. His Fall 2013 collection presented ladylike sportswear that can easily be worn by many.
