If I had a white flag, I’d wave it. I’m done with winter even if winter isn’t done with me. I thought that picking out an ideal beach look for the vacation that I’m going on in my head might be a good way to alleviate some of the stress associated with knowing that I’m going to leave the office in a few hours and go outside into temperatures in the teens, but then I remembered that I am not exactly an ideal beach-goer, either, what with my pale skin, love for black and tendency to perspire.
In case you thought that perhaps the MICHAEL Michael Kors Selma Tote juggernaut could be stopped, we are here this morning to prove you wrong. The bag, which continues to fly off the shelf in its most sought-after colors, is making a reappearance for the impending warm weather in a host of half-canvas, half-leather iterations that lighten up the bag’s weight as well as its already reasonable price tag.
Fox Sports football personality Erin Andrews was recently spotted heading from LAX to JFK for the impending Super Bowl festivities. As you can see, she’s overloaded with not just a Celine Luggage Tote, but also a Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Tote, which means her airport handbag game is about as tight as it gets. (Also, sports personality ladies, we clearly haven’t been paying you enough attention.
Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was fairly boring in the way that Real Housewives tends to get boring every few weeks: the season’s initial round of conflicts has been more or less resolved, cast members who are good at stirring the pot were mostly absent and Carlton’s attempt at an Eyes Wide Shut-style pool party turned out mostly to be a regular pool party with a couple of naked ladies in liquor-logo body paint.
The Grammys are always pretty weird, and the 2014 Grammy Awards followed proudly in that tradition. (Kendrick Lamar with Imagine Dragons as a backing band? Sure, why not?) Along with everything else, the stars’ (the ones who bothered to show up and walk the carpet, anyway) handbag choices weren’t exactly in line with what we’ve seen at previous awards shows this season.
Awards season always puts clutches on our mind, and when it comes to selecting a little evening bag, we always have the same problem: wedging a phone into a box clutch in a way that also accommodates our keys, wallet and lipstick. Getting my phone in there at all is difficult, especially when it has a case on it (naked iPhones make me nervous), but accessing it throughout the evening without upsetting the delicate balance of my bag’s contents is well nigh impossible.
R&B singer Keyshia Cole was spotted exiting club 1OAK in West Hollywood with an eye-popping pink VBH Ostrich Brera Bag. The Italian-made Brera bag is made of real, full quill ostrich skin, not embossed leather, which explains the fairly dizzying price tag. (Even so, we’re big fans of VBH’s latest line of exotic bags.) If you’re feeling extra spendy, you can currently pick up Keyshia’s beautiful VBH bag for $7,750 at Bergdorf Goodman.
Welcome to the very first edition of The International Edit, where we’ll be shopping on behalf of our non-American customers at some of the best overseas retailers that these here Internets have to offer. Our regular coverage tends to be US-centric because of our location in New York City, but we wanted to give some love both to our international readers and the online retailers that specialize in serving them. If you’re in the US, you might still want to take a look – these stores all ship to our shores, and non-American retailers often offer brands and pieces that are harder to find in the US. This week, our favorite bags, shoes and accessories come from MyTheresa, Browns and My-Wardrobe. Read More…
