We spend a lot of time talking about shoe veterans like Christian Louboutin and Jimmy Choo, but as we look forward to the new year, I love trying to predict which upstart brands are going to land among the stars.

In my mind, New Year’s Eve is the most exciting makeup holiday of the year. It’s a day when sparkle and shine is encouraged in all aesthetic realms, and that means it’s time to pull out all the stops and try one of the intense makeup looks in those YouTube tutorials you always watch.

Balenciaga Metallic Edge Backpack
Day 10: I never got behind the backpack trend and bought myself one, but I've been feeling the urge lately. If you want a chic designer backpack look no further than this Balenciaga option. The metallic edge provides a downtown cool touch and there's something utterly perfect and very model off-duty-esque with the Balenciaga black leather backpack.

Fendi-Croc-Embossed-3Jours-Bag
Fendi

I’ve already detailed the gifts I’d love to be receiving for Christmas (and my birthday!) this year, but there’s always one more you forgot about, isn’t there? For me, that’s the Fendi 3Jours Croc-Embossed Calf Hair Bag; the texture on the front is just way too cool.

Latest-Obsession-Saint-Laurent
Saint Laurent

I’m often critical of Saint Laurent under Hedi Slimane, but the man does have an undeniable knack for certain things. To me, his collections often feel cobbled together of riffs on pieces other labels have found cool-girl success with, like Chelsea boots and leather jackets marked up until they feel rarified, but that approach does turn out a lot of pieces that are enviable on their own.

Kate-Spade-Pre-Fall-2016-Bags-3
Kate Spade

There are few brands that consistently nail their own look as well as Kate Spade. The brand’s version of ladylike prep has been honed over many seasons with designer Deborah Lloyd, and Kate Spade’s Pre-Fall 2016 lookbook is full of the bright, cheerful, cute-but-not-cutesy bags we’ve come to expect.

And to think, mere days ago I was lamenting that celebrities go into hibernation around this time of the year. Yet here they are, out in force, doing all the same things that you love to do with your family during the holidays.

Coach Rhyder Satchel in Shearling
Day 9: Coach is one of my favorite handbag brands of 2015. I don't always like Shearling bags, but this Rhyder satchel in black shearling is so cool and I'd love to carry it. Even better are the funky boots I found to pair with it! Coach Rhyder Satchel in Shearling 12 Days of Handbags $330 0 Comments Read More
