Here's pop star Lorde, shopping at Rag & Bone and Free People in West Hollywood with new celeb pal/fellow pop star Taylor Swift. As you can see she's paired a navy and white Chloe Baylee Bag with a black sweater, a textured skirt, oddly prominent Nike socks and an imposing pair of oxfords with ridiculously thick soles. You can currently get a Baylee bag like Lorde's for $2,050 at Nordstrom. I imagine with her very recent ascent to pop stardom, Lorde is just starting to amass designer handbags - it'll be interesting to see what appears on her arm in the coming months.
It's always a little weird to see high-profile celebs randomly buddying it up around LA. Whenever stars shop together within plain sight of paparazzi cameras, I can't help but feel like some sort of cred transaction is actually taking place. In this case, Taylor gets to look a little edgier, and Lorde gets a bump among T-Swift fans. (I'm not entirely sure she actually needs one, so maybe there is a grain of authentic friendship here.)
