msgm-ruffle-puffer-coatThe holiday season may be over, but red puffer coats are a great idea right now and will brighten your mood from the daily gloom. It’s January and cold. A pretty ruffle puffer coat in red is just what the doctor ordered if you are in the snow or the rain. Other red puffer coats are also a great idea. Here are some of my favs you can wear with a great pair of red Aquazzura red lace up pumps on sale when it’s just cold and not raining or snowing outside. Wear the perfect Zadig & Voltaire lace camisole underneath in case you end up somewhere at night for drinks.

Private-Jet-fashionsMake sure that you include certain items if you are taking a long trip – you need to be prepared for any contingency. Here are five essentials for flying on a private jet.

Chloe Scalloped Suede Pumps

These velvet suede shoes are delicate enough to look incredible at a moment’s notice with virtually any outfit and durable enough to survive a hard airline trip. The timeless look of the shoe combines a leather lining with an almond toe and Mary Jane strap.

Alaia Vienne Laser Cut Leather Tote

Perhaps the best looking luxury everyday bag you will ever tote, this Italian smooth black leather is laser cut with a two tone tan interior. You have plenty of room in this tote for everything no matter where you land, but you stay as mobile as ever.

Anita Ko Evil Eye Gold, Diamond and Sapphire Ring

Look like a celebrity no matter where you fly with the Anita Ko Evil Eye ring. Created from 18 karat rose gold, 1.01 carats of diamonds and centered with a 0.65 carat sapphire, you will be in the company of Rihanna, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Lawrence, who all praise Anita Ko and feature the brand.

Balenciaga Asymmetric Woven Dress

If you need a look that you can slide on and accessorize in a few minutes, this Balenciaga is your perfect compromise. This asymmetric dress gives you style and body with plenty of room for your smaller accessory pieces. The back is cutaway with a flared handkerchief hem so that you can float off of your flight like a silhouette. This look is perfect to match with any of the other accessories on this list if you need a costume change before your flight lands.

Stella McCartney Cashmere and Wool Blend Sweater

You never know if your flight will get a bit nippy, and the Stella McCartney will make sure that you stay in style while you cover up. The piece is spun from a durable and weighty blend of cashmere and wool that is knit with a unique laddered pattern that keeps you cool while you stay warm. The sweater is oversize and finished with three decorative button and cowl neck collar.

Balenciaga Le Dix Cartable M Bag

on June 7th, 2014

Balenciaga Le Dix Cartable M Bag – when I saw this great light saddle brown leather top handle bag for summer I thought “hello lover.” It was definitely one of the most perfect bags I have seen in a long time. This includes comparing it to the coveted Hermes Kely bag inspired by Grace Kelly in all of its glory. This bag inspired by the archives of Balenciaga was reinvented by Alexander Wang when he took over the house of Balenciaga this year. What a great modern interpretation of a classic bag to make it modern again. This bag has modern edgy touches of metal hardware contrasting the soft supple leather that rounds it all out. Wear this bag with all white this summer with a pair of Chanel espadrilles and you are set for the boat off of Martha’s Vineyard. The cross body strap will allow you to wear it while biking through Central Park as well on your way to lunch. No matter how you wear this bag, it is definitely a classic in the making for the house of Balenciaga. 

Balenciaga Le Dix Cartable M Bag for $1945.

Lauren Conrad wearing a pair of Citizens of Humanity “Racer” ultra low rise skinny jeans in Slash while out shopping.

It is 2013 but suddenly it seems like the late 90’s again because Lauren is wearing faded on trend skinny jeans with her Balenciaga motorcycle bag.

I love the look and am glad Lauren Conrad is shopping her closet for a new bag instead of a new bag. Kinda cool.

Citizens of Humanity Jeans seen on Lauren Conrad are $229 at

I personally own this green bag and have been approached by sales people in stores like Chanel to ask who made the bag. Yep after they are surrounded by amazing leather bags all day long, they asked me where I got my green tote bag.

You know what we should not be surprised that Gap can make a great bag. What we should do is celebrate the fact that Gap and other brands can make a great looking bag in a price point many of us can afford. Yes, we love Chanel for that inspiration or that special bag treat for ourselves, but if you want a great workhorse of a bag for daily use and for work, you can always look to a few other brands that we have found for you that have high quality bags for affordable price points.

Check out our top picks for Spring and Summer now.

1. Gap green leather slouchy tote bag – $125 from Gap.

2. Michael Kors green leather tote bag seen on Zoe Saldana for $358 from Michael Kors is an incredible looking bag and for a great price.

3. Michael Kors Gia ostrich embossed shoulder strap bag for $795 from Neiman Marcus. A lady like staple that you can use all spring and summer for weddings and events or after work drinks and dinner.

Kristen Stewart wears Balenciaga Thorn Sandals

on March 18th, 2013
0 Comment

For Spring 2013 Balenciaga made some pretty interesting sandals that look like they have thorns all over the top of the foot. It is kinda interesting since it is Easter and Passover and the thorns kinda remind me of the whole cross thing…aside from that they are pretty cool looking sandals and come in a heel and a flat version. They were recently seen on Kristen Stewart while she was live chatting online for the new Balenciaga perfume Florabotanica.

She has become quite the unofficial model for Balenciaga in the last season with all of her appearances wearing Balenciaga leather motorcycle jackets and shoes at runway shoes and out and about. She is a very good model for them as she has that edgy goth style and has played a Vampire in that little know Twilight Saga movie series that is very much Balenciaga’s style.

I am loving the thorn sandals for Spring 2013. I think I like the heels seen on Kristen Stewart more than the flats. Your thoughts?

Get the Balenciaga thorn spine sandals seen on Kristen Stewart now for $795.

Pink Bags for Valentine’s Day Gifts – from him or for yourself

on February 6th, 2013
0 Comment

I love Valentine’s Day and especially when it falls around President’s Day weekend. It is the perfect time for people to go away for the weekend and use it as an excuse to take a few days off and relax in the middle of winter. The colors of pink, red, and white are always top of mind during Valentine’s Day and that really brightens up a cold winter day when it is either raining or snowing and dark out. For Valentine’s Day think about a great gift for yourself or give him a little help so you are not disappointed. I always say tell them what you want so you won’t be disappointed. Although I love pink ranunculas forget the flowers unless it comes with a pink bag right?

My top 4 picks for pink Valentine’s Day bag are the following.

1. Mulberry Bayswater pink tote bag. Why? Well it is a classic in a pretty color and very practical. The buffalo leather is durable and the classic shape will take you from work to a weekend away. This is perfect for the person who needs to take everything with them when they go to work or out for the day. Mulberry Pink bayswater for $1650.

2. Chloe Paraty Pink bag. I have a new found love for the Chloe paraty bag this season. I was kind of tired of seeing it on everyone a few years back and then it kind of disappeared for a bit. Now the bag is a bit of a quiet icon in its own right with its scratch resistant leather, top handle and shoulder bag option, and pretty new colors like the pink. It is a great bag to wear to lunch or out for the day browsing the stores. Nothing says Valentine’s Day like a great pink bag. Chloe Paraty bag for $2295.

3. Balenciaga town bag in pearl pink. This  touch edgy street style blogger favorite of a bag looks feminine and pretty in the pink color. Even though the bag is still the same smooshy Balenciaga leather with the tough distressed leather, the pink color gives it that girly feel that you will want for spring and Valentine’s Day weekend. It is still a great workhorse of a bag, but you will get to wear it on that date night and feel pretty in pink. Get the Balenciaga town bag in pink in time for Valentine’s Day.

4. Kate Spade pink tote bag. In 2008 the Director of Public Relations of Kate Spade and I worked on a project together with Alyssa Milano for the launch of the Kate Spade Knightsbridge bag. There I met edgy jewelry designers, studio execs, celebrities, and tastemakers and did a fun giveaway on my site. Since then, I have always loved the Kate Spade brand and their bags. Always made of the best leathers and always reasonably priced. The Kate Spade brand has really become a lifestyle brand more than just a bag line. Andy and Kate Spade created an empire that includes everything from bags, shoes, luggage, clothing, and jewelry. Now Andy Spade is even working on relaunching Boast USA. And just in time for the season too with their country club tennis aesthetic style it is right on for Spring 2013. One of my favorites for Valentine’s Day is this Kate Spade minka bag in pink with the cross body strap and soft leather for $378.


Here is my fav pink bag – the Chanel clutch bag with rose gold hardware. Seen here with my Joie lace dress, Jimmy Choo nude sandals, Francois Pinton sunglasses in front of the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills before high tea.

Lilac Purple Spring Bag Trend 2013

on December 17th, 2012
0 Comment

Color is big this season and into Spring 2013. All the designers are showing bags in lots of brights from greens, yellows, reds, blues, to purples. I am loving the lilac, purple, violet spring bags trend for Spring 2013. Everything is so fresh for spring and with the floral fashion trend, it is like you are wearing a bouquet of flowers this coming season.

There are some great picks for Spring 2013 from designers like Balenciaga, Chloe, Anya Hindmarch, Oscar De La Renta, Proenza Schouler, Prada, Rebecca Minkoff, and Modcloth.

Check out some of our favorites here:

Chloe violet cross body saddle bag is on sale for 20% off. Love this bag because it is definitely one of those bags you will want to pull out of your closet all spring and summer. Think of it with a white blouse and jeans carried messenger style. This bag will hold everything and elevate your simple jean and shirt outfit to the next level so you can go right into the Per Se for lunch with no issue if you so choose.

Modcloth I like it like that bag for $54.99 can be used as a clutch or as a shoulder bag. Its flat body style and printed reptile detail on its lilac background and gold hardware makes this bag a no brainer for Spring 2013.

Balenciaga City Arena bag in Glycine with rose gold hardware is an iconic bag that can be used for school, work, play, and travel. This versatile bag is easily going to become your go to bag because it is such a great looking bag that can take a little bit of distress and still keep looking great.

Anya Hindmarch Marano Dancer LED-lit glitter-finished clutch in purple is 70% off from $795 to $238.50 and so chic for the holidays. The color is subtle but eye catching. This clutch can easily go to drinks with friends or a holiday party.

Proenza Schouler PS11 is now a classic. The hard calf leather gives the bag a sheen that sets up the very cool looking hardware on the bag. The bag can be worn crossbody or shoulder bag style. The new violet color is just so enigmatic that you will want to wear one of your coat capes with a fedora when you wear this bag.

Oscar De La Renta Small Dex bag is a perfect lady’s satchel bag with a top handle and shoulder strap. If you want classic ODLR updated in this pretty violet color look no further than the Small Dex bag. It is very chic.

Prada Vernice Tote in Purple is a great bag that comes in a durable leather that is scratch resistant. If you are a mom with young children this is the bag for you. You will be able to take this Prada bag everywhere without worrying about scuffs. You can take this bag from boardroom to homeroom with no issues.
