I’ve got a little crush on Emma Roberts. I’ve seen her at quite a few events and she always seems approachable and like an overall nice girl, the kind of girl with whom you’d like to have lunch and go shopping. It doesn’t hurt that she’s Julia Roberts’ niece, but Emma has made quite a name for herself in the hard-to-enter entertainment industry and it seems the fashion industry has taken a liking to her as well, mostly because of her casual day-to-day style and ease of changing to prim and proper for events.

Give me a minute while I collect my thoughts. As soon as I came across this bag, I knew I had to write about it. But, guys, I am not even sure where to start.
It’s no secret that Christian Louboutin is known for show stopping stilettos. And while I am not so certain the Christian Louboutin Artemis Ostrich Feather Shoulder Bag will end up on my shoulder any time soon, it is quite the statement piece.
It’s no surprise that Christian Louboutin, a man who found success by adorning the soles of shoes with red lacquer, would look to find a way to distinguish himself in the handbag market by putting his own flourish on an under-appreciated part of the handbag anatomy: the strap. Thus comes Louboutin’s line of Artemis bags, which feature makeshift epaulets adorned with everything from violent-looking spikes to the more exuberant multicolored feathers of the Christian Louboutin 20th Anniversary Artemis Plumes Shoulder Bag.
Did you know that the shoe department of Saks Fifth Avenue’s flagship New York City store has its own zip code? It does, and trust me, it is that good. If you are in the New York area, plan a trip to the store and set aside a few hours to peruse the shoes. Of course, you can’t talk about shoes without mentioning the master himself: Christian Louboutin and to be honest, we think Mr.
Looking through street style photos during Fashion Week is always fun and almost always makes me start doing mental budget math to see if I can maybe, possibly justify the purchase of, say, a giant feather-covered coat this month, but rarely do street style photos stop me in my tracks. Yesterday, while flipping through Phil Oh’s shots for Vogue.com, that’s exactly what happened.
Happy 20th Anniversary to the famed Christian Louboutin! To celebrate 20 years of amazing bags and shoes, the Christian Louboutin Capsule Collection has been released that showcases 20 iconic shoe styles and 6 bags that have been redesigned to celebrate the occasion. The collection is being shown on the official Louboutin Facebook page.
Tomorrow we will show you the true beauty of this bag, but today here is a sneak peek at a sketch of one of the six soon-to-be-released bags.
Over on TalkShoes, I’ve mentioned several times that the paint-splattered natural python seen on several of Christian Louboutin‘s Spring 2012 shoes is my favorite exotic finish that the footwear master has ever done and one of my favorite python finishes ever, from anyone. The little splashes of color add just the right amount of signature Louboutin wit to the skin without obscuring its natural beauty, and I’ve been in love with it ever since I saw Blake Lively wearing a pair of the shoes at the Louboutin 20th anniversary party at Barneys a few months ago.

A few months ago, I wrote a funny little post about bags that could be used as weapons. As fashion’s penchant for embellishment grows increasingly inescapable, it seems as though most high-end accessories can be repurposed for self-defense in an emergency, and with the prices that designers charge, it’s frankly nice that they have the extra utility.

I miss a lot of things about college, and the crossword puzzle from the University of Georgia student newspaper is probably a lot higher up on that list than you’d expect. It was the perfect level of difficulty – I could finish it in about 45 minutes and feel challenged while still ultimately being victorious.

I searched PurseBlog and realized we only have a handful of posts on (most likely) my favorite color: cobalt blue. Blue has always been my color, but there is something about a bright shocking blue that is not overly aggressive but still lures me in so strongly. Celine did this wonderfully and I count myself as one of the few and one of the lucky to own a Celine Cobalt Blue Luggage Tote.
