The New Essentials

August 25, 2010

I brought up the massive popularity of camel for fall earlier this week, and now it’s time to really take a look at some of the best bets for the season. This week’s homepage is all about “The New Essentials”–these are handbags that, while they may not be brand new, still fit in perfectly with fall’s trends. We’ve curated four sets of bags: Camel, Exotic skins, Black and Red.

Red happens to be one of fall’s strongest colors–check out a couple of pictures from Zac Posen‘s most recent runway show. What do you think about the red velvet?

Friday Favorites: Going Gray

July 30, 2010

Have you noticed all the interest in gray hair this month? First, Vogue taps quirky model fave Kristen McMenamy to appear in a huge fashion spread shot by David Sims, and then Lady Gaga shows up on the Nick Knight-shot cover of the September issue of Vanity Fair also sporting long, gray tresses. Kelly Osbourne has even been seen around town in a light gray/lavender ‘do, adding to the notion that the color isn’t just for high-end magazine shoots.

While I absolutely loved the McMenamy shoot and really like the Gaga cover, it’s not necessarily easy to pull off this look in real life. So why not just invest in a gorgeous gray bag and call it a day? Here are my Friday favorites for this week:

Chanel Gray Distressed Lambskin Quilted Large Classic Reissue Double Flap Bag. Just a perfect, classic bag in a very chic shade of gray. Want. This. Bag.

Alexander McQueen Flapper Shoulder Bag. The perfect boho chic summer tote. The strap is adjustable for easy cross-body carrying.

Zac Posen Grey Leather Daisy Shoulder Bag. The chunky gold chain and leather detailing make this bag totally unique.
