February always sneaks up on me, and then it leaves as quickly as it arrived. The month is filled with fashion weeks, so it’s a bit crazy, plus this February was so cold that I spent most of my time strategically deciding the quickest way to get from point A to point B without freezing. I did get a little shopping in, though, and while I told myself I have plenty of Celine bags, I found my way into the store and picked up a Celine Cabas Tote.
Actress Margot Robbie was recently spotted leaving LA via LAX after the Oscars, where she made headlines for wearing a gorgeous Saint Laurent gown and debuting her newly brunette locks on the red carpet. (You might recognize a blonde Margot from The Wolf of Wall Street. She played “The Duchess.”) Margot is carrying a tidy black Fendi 2Jours Petite Tote here.
Huddle up, you guys. It’s March. I know that it doesn’t feel like it in about half of the United States, but it is, and we’re going to forge ahead into spring even if the weather has decided that it doesn’t want to join us for a few weeks. That’s why we’ve chose to pick only floral clothes, bags and shoes for this edition of Want It Wednesday – perhaps a sunny outfit can help Mother Nature along a little bit. At the very least, it’s worth a shot. Read More…
More than any show this season, and perhaps in the history of time, Chanel Fall 2014 doesn’t require much of an explanation. Because I’m not sure exactly where that leaves me, though, I’d appreciate it if you’d allow me to be self-indulgent and give you one anyway. We can let Karl Lagerfeld host a fashion show in a faux supermarket, but I, personally, will not let him obviate my place in the universe.
We have a lot of great things over on TalkShoes this week that you won’t want to miss. We picked our favorite Shoe of the Week, rounded up the best jeweled sandals under $500 and spotted the lovable Reese Witherspoon wearing a fabulous pair of Christian Louboutins to the Independent Spirit Awards. If that’s not enough, we even reviewed the Dior Fall 2014 shoes from Paris Fashion Week that may leave you speechless, but not in a good way.
24 hours from now, Bea and I will be off to warm, sunny Austin for a long weekend of learning about all things Internet-y at the 2014 South By Southwest Interactive Festival. (We’ll also be eating a lot of tacos, but that’s both irrelevant to this particular post and implied in any statements I ever make about going to Texas.) Unfortunately for all involved, going to SXSW requires both suitcase-packing and air travel, two of the most pernicious and hateful activities known to modern man. We’ve had some time to think about it, though, and in case you’re going on a trip in the near future, we’d like to present you with our travel essentials for SXSW and beyond. Read More…
David and Victoria Beckham were recently spotted heading into a Paris train station with a fitting assortment of high-end carry-alls in tow (including one of Victoria’s own designs, natch). David’s carrying a Louis Vuitton Monogram Macassar Keepall Bag, and Victoria has one of her own Victoria Beckham Liberty Totes on her arm. You can purchase David’s Keepall for $1,880 at Louis Vuitton.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills usually isn’t a nostalgic show, but last night, they insisted on devoting more or less an entire episode to sending two Housewives spawn off to college, and that brought about some memories for me. It was convenient that it did, actually, because the episode was relatively boring other than that. Lisa mustered up some tears again, but by that point in the episode, we had spent so much time shipping people off to college that her tears seemed out of context at best.
When it comes to handbags at the Oscars, stars usually play it safe; the stage is huge, and in general, none of them want to take a risk that lands them in a spot to be ridiculed. The handbag choices at the 2014 Academy Awards followed in that line of thought, but there were a few pieces here and there (in addition to a lot of traditional prettiness) that made our evening bag spidey senses tingle.
