I’ve always been fond of animal prints, but traditionally they skew more toward old-school glamor than my own personal style, which is more modern and casual. With the brand new Coach Wild Beast collection, artist …

Over the past few years, a new handbag market has emerged. It’s not exactly contemporary, but it’s more attainable and casual than premiere designer, and it’s probably most accurately referred to as “premium contemporary.” It …

I’m a little embarrassed to say that my iPhone has seen much, much better days because I don’t have a bag like the MICHAEL Michael Kors Phone Compartment Crossbody. Not only do I have a …

Dolce and Gabbana Leopard Print Diaper Bag

“Well, of course.”

That’s the only thought I could have for at least 15 seconds after I first laid eyes on the Dolce & Gabbana Leopard Print Diaper Bag. Of course Dolce & Gabbana makes

Muted Animal Print Bags

When I spoke to Net-a-Porter fashion director Holli Rodgers a few weeks ago regarding Pre-Fall and Fall 2013’s big accessories trends, she expressed a bit of a reticence toward animal prints, and leopard in particular. …

There are a lot of things to admire about Gucci, but today, the thing that strikes me most is the brand’s commitment to interesting hardware. Horse bits, stirrups, bamboo – the Gucci has made a …

Have you ever taken one look at a collection at handbags and thought that somehow, the designer is listening to your thoughts and plotting to make you and you alone spend all of your money …

First of all, an apology: I’m sorry that I’m assaulting your eyes with this much look so early in the morning, but sometimes them’s the breaks, eh? Consider it like your second alarm of the day – the first one woke up your body, but the Dolce & Gabbana Patchwork Shoulder Bag is here to wake up your senses, for better or for worse. Naturally, the bag makes a perfect candidate for the latest edition of Fill in the Blank. (more…)

Good news: Megs and I have returned to Manhattan! Bad news: We’re still getting back up to speed, so things will be a bit slow today and then totally back to normal tomorrow, and we hope that readers who were affected by the hurricane are also well on their way back to normalcy. For now, though, I’d like to spend a moment touching on my aversion to black bags.

Black, as a color, is one of my favorites. It always has been, even during childhood when most little girls fawned over pink; when everyone else in my first grade class had a pair of white Keds, I had black ones. But now, because I wear so much black clothing, wearing black accessories and shoes just feels really…dull. Even a black bag as beautiful and functional as the Prada Calfskin Tote can’t make it into my wardrobe without a good game plan for spicing it up.

To those of you out there who don’t like leopard print, I apologize. Not only are you probably sick of hearing about it by now, but it looks as though it’s going to be a …

We all know that this time of the summer is basically nonexistent in the fashion world. Megs and Vladi are on vacation, emails slow down to a trickle, it’s impossible to get ahold in anyone who works in an office after noon on Fridays. And here I am, plugging away, trying to conjure a blog out of thin air. But sometimes, the absolute stillness of the industry allows you to notice some things you might otherwise brush off.

Today, that means I noticed both the Dolce & Gabbana Miss Romantique Dome Satchel and Dolce & Gabbana Miss Sicily Tiger Sequins Satchel are, well, both made my Dolce & Gabbana. In the same season. Most brands certainly have a range of bags that goes from safe to flamboyant in order to satisfy a range of customers and purposes (some bags need to do the heavy lifting at retail, some need to garner editorial attention from magazines, still others need to get noticed by blogs like this one), but these two designs constitute about as wide of a range as I’ve ever seen from a single collection.
