Mini bags have been making waves in the handbag world for a while now, and I hope you love the trend, because it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. After the short-lived trend for massive, overly heavy, totally unwieldy oversized bags, the trend pendulum swung toward minis, and all of our arms and shoulders rejoiced.
Bag: Brunello Cucinelli Cashmere Fur Clutch

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: The ultra-soft, pale pink fur makes this bag feel a little bit dreamlike and impossible, but the contrast of the black strap closure pulls it back to Earth just enough.
You read about the stunning Chanel Fall 2014 Couture handbags that debuted a few days ago, and now, over on TalkShoes, we’ve checked out the Chanel Couture flip-flops that graced the same runway, and they are definitely not the kind of flip-flops you’re used to seeing. The latest highly covetable Instagrammer to be profiled is @theoriginalmf, and you will swoon once you see all of her Louboutins! Also, you and I may wear flip-flops to the Jersey Shore boardwalk, but Kim Kardashian wears a pair Hermes Strappy Suede Sandals, naturally. Last but not least, we have to direct you to some fabulous Shoe Deals!
There was a lot of debate when I named the Saint Laurent Sac Du Jour as the bag of the week back in March.
I have a friend who brings her Prada bag to the beach. She’s a sensible girl at heart, and her attitude about her bag is that it’s hers, it’s saffiano and it should be able to put up with a little sand every now and then.
Here’s Anne Hathaway filming The Intern in Manhattan, and that is indeed Robert DeNiro in a couple of these shots. Anne, or her character, in this case, is carrying a natural leather Céline Classic Box Bag. In a shocking twist, the intern in question is actually Robert DeNiro, and not Anne Hathaway.
It’s not that men have more functional needs that women (not by a long shot); often, it’s that they prioritize them far above aesthetics, because that’s what they’ve been socialized to do, and that’s why their bags are designed differently. The Rag & Bone Canvas Herringbone Messenger Bag is all substance, with just enough style to finish it off.
