Perfect Pairs

Technically, this may not be a Perfect Pair, but I just couldn’t help myself. I was in the accessories zone. Sometimes all it takes is one accessory to ignite the perfect look, and that’s exactly what sparked this ensemble. For me, it all started with the Joelle Hawkens by Treesje Hunt Satchel, and the rest was history.

With its zipper edging and front detailing, this Joelle Hawkens satchel has a laid back, downtown feel that’s compelling.

Kate Upton Fendi 3Jours Tote

Kate Upton was recently spotted doing a little shopping in Paris with her The Other Woman costar Leslie Mann, who’s hidden behind someone’s head in the photo above while leaving the Saint Laurent boutique. Kate is carrying a Fendi 3Jours Shopping Tote. The embroidered leather design on the front of the bag looks a lot like a computer chip, n’est ce pas?

Want It Wednesday All White Everything

Givenchy Fall 2014 Handbags 7

By now, we’re all used to Givenchy’s handbag MO: a solid stable of distinctive, fan-favorite shapes, made over for each season with a few tweaked details and one or two hyper-distinctive prints.

Miley Cyrus Chanel Graffiti Backpack

Here’s Miley Cyrus, leaving her hotel in NYC (where she brought her Bangerz tour over the weekend), carrying two recent acquisitions – her new puppy Moonie and one of the mildly controversial Chanel Graffiti Backpacks from Chanel Spring 2014. She’s also carrying a bright red bag (that matches her manicure), which we can’t quite see well enough to ID.

Saint Laurent Crocodile Sac de Jour Chicago Robbery

Late last week, word broken that more than $100,000 worth of clothing, shoes, handbags and accessories had been swiped from Saint Laurent’s Chicago boutique in a brazen smash-and-grab robbery in the middle of the night, and now we’ve received an interesting note from a tipster: a Saint Laurent Crocodile Sac de Jour Bag, priced at over $29,000, was among the loot missing from the store when the cops arrived.
