Last weekend Vlad and I took a little getaway with some friends, and on our way back into the city I saw an Hermes store out of the corner of my eye. I made Vlad whip the car around as soon as I laid eyes on the sign and we were in the parking lot before I knew it, much to Vlad’s dismay.

Recently, we’ve talked about both the best ways to carry a clear bag and how to organize your belongings in a big bag, so it only seemed appropriate that we get down to the nitty-gritty of both of these subjects eventually. PurseBloggers, today is that day – we’ve scoured the Internet for the coolest small accessories, from sunglasses to iPad cases, and we’ve assembled them for easy judgment.
As we reminded you guys several times on Friday, it’s February now. You’ve had a weekend to process that information, and when it comes to shopping, February means one thing: Valentine’s Day. Odds are, you have someone in your life to whom you owe a V-Day gift, even if you’re single, and buying for men in these situations can get a little tricky.
I’m a jewelry girl, but I’m not a jewelry girl. When it comes to accessories, I will always opt to splurge on handbags before shoes or jewelry. When it is time to buy some jewels, I love a trendy statement piece and I don’t seek out precious stones or solid gold. However, if I were to do so, I might turn to Hermes Exceptional Jewelry – when you have hundreds of thousands of imaginary dollars to spend on jewelry and you already love the Hermes brand, then why not?
I know a lot of guys who are into menswear, and I can’t help but feel a little bad for them. Despite the fact that the category is expanding by leaps and bounds, the amount of variety of luxury goods available to women is exponentially larger. Not only that, but it’s totally allowed and encouraged for ladies to borrow from the boys, but relatively few men are willing to cross the aisle in the other direction and dip into womenswear.
If you followed along with our coverage of the Spring 2013 handbag collections, you might have noticed that a lot of designers showed bags that were either partially or totally clear. Mesh, vinyl, whatever the method, what’s on the inside is now on the outside, for all intents and purposes. Accessory design has been headed that way for a while (the 3.1 Phillip Lim PVC Pashli from last season is a great example of that), and it means that now you have to consider what you put inside your bag more than ever.
If you follow me on Instagram (which you totally should), you probably know that I love manicures. I am no expert, but I am an experimenter and I love trying different manicures on myself and my friends. Sometimes they work out and sometimes I end up with a really weird looking finished product, but I’m always up for trying something new.
If ever there were something that’s worthy of the label “fashion person problem,” it’s the difficulty in keeping your American, British, Italian and French currencies separate during the month-long seasonal jaunt through the world’s four flagship Fashion Week’s. (Ok, strictly speaking, there are only three currencies at play here – France and Italy are both on the euro. But, whatever, just go with it.
One of the bags I think about the least but probably get the most use out of is my cosmetic bag. I use it daily, it travels with me and, quite frankly, I don’t take very good care of it. I should take better care of it, but instead I think I take my cute little cosmetic bag for granted. You see, it is just a matter of time until I realize I need to replace it and when that day comes, I will inevitably be taken by surprise and under-prepared.
Like many little girls, I always looked forward to trips to my grandmother’s house. In addition to great food and unconditional love, I would almost always get to play with my grandmother’s jewelry, clothes, shoes and bags. While I seemed to find a new treasure with each visit, there was one item that I always made sure to get my hands on – an old and very delicate coin purse.
