If I can be unguarded for a moment (and I feel like this is a place of honesty), I’d like to admit that I spend a lot of time thinking about my hair. I always have. It’s naturally curly, fine and thin, but I come from a region where a woman’s hair should be her perfectly coiffed crowning glory, so I’ve spent my entire life changing its color and learning how to make it do whatever I want.
If you liked the cheeky post-modernism of Anya Hindmach’s Spring 2015 runway bags but thought that the super-styled versions that the models carried were just a bit much for you, you’re in luck. Many of the bags from the runway will be sold as separate components, meaning that you’re free to embellish a plain tote as little or as much as you’d like.
When it comes to Chanel shows, we never quite know what to expect from Karl Lagerfeld. For example, the Chanel Spring 2015 show sent a flurry of bags down the runway that were post-modern and protest-inspired.
With slogans like ‘Make Fashion Not War’ and ’5×5=CC,’ the spring accessories made a huge statement.
Kate Spade is a brand that knows how to treat its customer well, and the Kate Spade Surprise Sale, which just launched today, is yet another example of that. Now through November 11, customers can enjoy up to 75% off a huge selection of current season bags, shoes, accessories and apparel. Act quickly, though–all of this stuff will go back to regular price once the sale ends.
The resale market for rare designer bags is hotter than ever, but what’s often lost in the news stories about the ways those bags change hands are the stories of the bags themselves. British auction house Bonhams keeps those personal tales of shopping triumph in mind when sourcing fine handbags and accessories like the ones in its latest auction, set to begin November 10 in Los Angeles.
Kelly Osbourne attended Adam Lambert’s annual Halloween party at Bootsy Bellows in Hollywood last weekend dressed as Margot Tenenbaum from the film The Royal Tenenbaums. She rounded out her costume with a vintage-looking Hermès Kelly Bag. It should probably be noted that an Hermès bag is not an absolutely essential ingredient of the Margot Tenenbaum costume, but everything else Kelly is wearing is spot-on.
