Celebrities seem to have come to a consensus: When life hands you lemons, carry Chanel. Or Hermès. Basically, just never stop carrying a fancy handbag, and people will never question you or your life choices. You can dye your hair green.

As you might imagine, after six years of writing about handbags every day, it’s not often that I see a bag from a major brand and think, Huh, that’s completely different than anything I’ve ever seen. That’s exactly what I thought when I saw the Christian Louboutin Sweet Charity Snakeskin backpack, though, and I’m a little bit obsessed with it.
Happy Friday, Roundup readers! We have a lot to share with you, so let’s get this party started. We dropped into the Kitchen this week, as well as the Jewelry Box. We also could not resist a little romp through the The Glass Slipper with our shoe-loving members, and we couldn’t drag ourselves out of Dior–soon, you will see why.
Celebrity fashion continues to drive home the fact that LA and NYC are polar (vortex) opposites, but the bag picks of half-frozen supermodels and bare-armed actresses on both coasts are always choice, even when the weather is less than idyllic.

A few weeks ago, I started to notice bags with hearts on them popping up here and there. At first, I assumed it was something of a timely gimmick; after all, Valentine’s Day is Saturday and some designers just can’t resist a theme, especially if it’s based on a holiday in which gifts are often given.
Saint Laurent’s Sac de Jour has quietly-yet-deliberately infiltrated the hearts and minds of celebrities over the past year. It’s not that the bag itself is remarkable; it’s really not, which may be part of the appeal. It’s sort of an anti-“it” bag–classically styled and fairly inconspicuous, with minimal branding.
