If there are two things we love in life, it’s handbags and holidays. This year, we decided to skip the partridge in a pear tree and give you 12 straight days of handbags! We’ll be revealing a different category every day, in addition to doing some Instagramming of our favorite handbags in each.
Now that we’re more than halfway through the first week of December, holiday party invitations are beginning to trickle in, and we’re already thinking about what we’re going to wear. The best outfits always start with accessories, which is why this week we rounded up the best bags and sparkliest clutches we spotted in our Instagram feed this week.
Elie Tahari Fall ’12.
I didn’t think this would happen, but I’ve changed outfits twice each day during fashion week so far. Different shows calls for different looks and this leaves me planning ahead and tearing apart my closet.Yesterday morning we started the day with the Kate Spade Fall 2012 presentation which meant bubbly fun and lots of colors early in the morning.
Knowing the Kate Spade girl is all about pops of colors and lots of quirk, I wore my hot pink J Brand jeans, my new turquoise and black cap-toe Lanvin flats, a super comfy grey vkoo sweater, and of course my bright pink Kate Spade Melinda Tote. (more…)
Yesterday New York Fashion Week began and I, like majority of attendees, scrambled around the house and pillaged through my closet trying to find something appropriate to wear. During my closet frenzy, Vlad amusedly asked me if all women think we need more clothes in our closets. The answer was a resounding ‘”YES, YES WE DO”.
When not dealing with fashion week and theÂ corresponding sartorial pressure, I am not nearly as concerned with my clothing choices, after all, I dress myself around my handbag. Â I am the handbag queen.
In effort to streamline my Fashion Week choices – I decided to apply my day-t0-day ‘dress around the bag’ theory. IÂ opted to start off with a sure-thing, my blackÂ Hermes Birkin and headed off to the shows: Nicholas K, BCBG, and Chadwick Bell. I kept the rest of my outfit simple with a 388 cashmere top, red and black floral Mink Pink skirt, a sick Oscar de la Renta coin necklace, and Jeffrey Campbell shoes.
The moral of day 1: Curating the outfit around the handbag never fails.
