If you’re one of the zillions of Scandal fans out there, you already know that our one true hero, Olivia Pope, returns to television after a too-long holiday hiatus in a little over 24 hours. In the two-and-a-half seasons of Scandal that have already transpired, DC political fixer Olivia, played by the excellent Kerry Washington, has become something of a wardrobe icon for women who work hard, love luxury and want to look both professional and totally feminine in both their professional and personal lives. Naturally, that means she’s carried a ton of covetable handbags, and we’re here to help you get her look. Read More…

People who know me, know that I’m a jeans-and-T-shirt kind of gal. I have an extensive collection of pieces that are easy to wear and not considered statement pieces, I leave my bags to do most of the attention-catching. But after seeing the droves of people at New York Fashion Week, I always reconsider some fun pieces that I want to add to my wardrobe.
Here’s pop star Lorde, shopping at Rag & Bone and Free People in West Hollywood with new celeb pal/fellow pop star Taylor Swift. As you can see she’s paired a navy and white Chloe Baylee Bag with a black sweater, a textured skirt, oddly prominent Nike socks and an imposing pair of oxfords with ridiculously thick soles. You can currently get a Baylee bag like Lorde’s for $2,050 at Nordstrom.

Well. Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills certainly was dramatic, even if the allegations that the group wanted to level against Lisa were often unclear at best and petty complaining at worst. I’m not sure if that’s because the rest of the Housewives aren’t as smart as she is or because Bravo edited the episode to make Lisa look like she was being hounded by a gang of confused harpies, but either way, not much truth was established and some people cried and the husbands had fits over various things.
Every season, Dolce & Gabbana seems to have one goal, and one goal only: to make every new collection as Dolce & Gabbana as humanly possible. Not interested in Italian neoclassicism, European history or the vagaries of Sicilian culture? Dolce isn’t for you, and the designers aren’t even going to pretend it is. There’s no everywoman in these garments, only the Dolce woman, and that extends to Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2014 Handbags.
Moreso than most American brands, who tend to try to please a crowd, Italian designers often have very specific customers. Dolce & Gabbana is for women who want to look sexy and traditionally elegant all at once. Gucci is straight-up sexy. Bottega Veneta is for sophisticated women who count luxury as more important than flash. Versace is for women who date rock stars and wear six-inch wedges to the beach.
UK pop star Rita Ora was spotted bouncing from afterparty to afterparty in Milan after being a special guest, along with Katy Perry, at the Moschino Fall 2014 runway show. Rita is proudly displaying what we’re going to call the Moschino Quilted Suit Jacket Bag, since it seems to be an obvious Chanel reference to both the brand’s handbags and its signature bouclé suits.
