My personal feelings about fur notwithstanding, when I first saw the Roberto Cavalli Squirrel-Trimmed Brocade Shoulder Bag, it actually seemed like a rather judicious and attractive use of the material. And then I read the word “squirrel,” and it screwed up my entire perception of this bag’s reality.

Is it just me, or is there something positively Deliverence-esque about wearing squirrel fur? Are European squirrels more chic than their American counterparts, or are the animals just not regarded the same way in other countries? And if they are regarded the same way, why use a material that has such low-market connotations on a bag with a four-figure price tag? (more…)

I can’t think of a bag that’s more versatile than a big black clutch. Add an exotic skin to the mix for a healthy dose of luxury and you’ve got a bag that can be worn day or night and year-round, no matter your age. Sometimes it’s hard to imagine how you’d work even the most basic bag into your wardrobe, however, particularly if you’re not prone toward considering a clutch (even an oversized one) to be a legitimate option for daytime use. With a little help from the Nancy Gonzalez Large Crocodile Clutch, I’m here to give you some food for thought. Or, maybe, I’m just here to make up pretty outfits. I’m comfortable with either of those options. (more…)

Fashion can get a little tricky when trying to mix lots of pieces with different textures and patterns, and for better or worse (we think for better), texture and pattern are all over the place lately. The moment’s trends call for bold looks from head to toe, and it can be a little daunting to try and figure out how to piece together a look like that at the mall – in fact, you really don’t want to know how many pieces I went through before I chose the ones you see above.

Because we like to be helpful, we’ve put together two bold looks, one casual and dressy, based on the very trendy Marc by Marc Jacobs Tribal Pixie Bucket Bag. A bag that has so much personality can be hard to style, but if you focus on incorporating pretty prints and standout accessories, you’ll have an outfit in no time. (more…)

Robert Cavalli Gold-Plated USB Stick PendantWell isn’t this…useful.

Let’s think for a moment about who exactly might be the target consumer for the Roberto Cavalli Gold-Plated USB Stick Pendant. A fashion editor? No, I don’t think she’d want to wear the same necklace to work every day. A graphic designer? No, USB stick drives are probably exchanged and tossed around so much in that profession that having one that’s also an expensive designer necklace is probably counterproductive.

What about a lady spy? Yes, that’s it! A lady spy. Like Angelina Jolie’s character in Mr. & Mrs. Smith. The ultra-luxe necklace would secretly contain important documents that the lady spy has to transfer to another secret agent, and when the bad guys toss her hotel room an an attempt to intercept the documents, they’d never think that a necklace could also be an electronic device.

It’s so James-Bond-y, but in a feminine way that’s probably also completely impractical. But when has Cavalli ever embraced practicality? I’m merely surprised that he didn’t also find a way to make it change all of your files to leopard-print backgrounds. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $565.
