New York Fashion Week - Days 1 - 3

New York Fashion Week is upon us again and over the years we’ve learned that the content you love most as a whole is seeing the style and bags people carry to the shows. Of course we’ll still cover some of the best handbags being sent down the runway, but there’s nothing better than seeing what people wear outside of them.


When you write about something for a living, it’s easy to look at it and think, “Will people like this?” instead of, “Do I like this?” How a particular design plays to the market at large and to our readers is always the first thing on my mind when I see a handbag; my personal opinion whether or not I’d carry it in my leisure time is way down the list of my concerns.


The worlds of fine art and high fashion make sense together. Not only do their clienteles overlap, but appreciation of both requires a keen eye and appreciation for the history of aesthetics. Since 1982, Leslie Hindman Auctioneers has been helping art aficionados around the country expand their collections, and on September 13th and 14th, the auction house wants to help you do the exact same thing with your wardrobe.


Beyoncé turned 35 on September 4th, and she threw herself an epic Soul-Train-inspired, celeb-filled fete in NYC to celebrate. Everyone was there, including Blue Ivy, Kelly and Michelle, and the outfits were amazing. Celebs fully committed to their very groovy apparel.

Bag Deals

Even though we’re not technically in sale season right now, we found a couple bags for our weekly roundup of bag deals that generally only appear at discounted prices for a couple weeks a year. If you passed up your opportunity at the beginning of the summer, you might just be in luck today.

Chanel Boy Bag with Handle

Chanel is constantly churning out new bags, many of them being new takes on classic bags for the house. The Chanel Boy Bag quickly turned into a staple for the brand, with many opting for a version of the Boy Bag over the Classic Flap (I know I am more of a Boy Bag lover than Flap at the moment).


The three-day holiday weekend may be long gone, but the awesome shoe deals from this past weekend are still going strong. We browsed the Internet in search of the best footwear discounts we could find, and get ready to see slashed prices on brands like Christian Louboutin, Gianvito Rossi, Aquazzura and more.

A love of high-end fashion and a love of international travel often overlap. Both require considerable expendable income and aesthetic curiosity, and both fashion and travel have a sense of glamor to them, which compounds on itself when the two are combined.


Chloé‘s popularity has spiked in the last few year, and that’s made the brand’s fans very interesting to follow on social media. The brand’s accessories profile first surged in the mid-to-late-2000s on the strength of the Paddington, Silverado and Paraty bags, but after Phoebe Philo’s departure, it took Chloé a few years to regain its status as an assured hitmaker.


“Classic,” when it comes to handbags, is an idea everyone conceptualizes a little differently. A bag can be classic-looking without being a classic, and today, my interest lies in the latter concept. When it comes to designer bags, classics are a small group that rarely expands; it takes a special piece not to look dated after a handful of years, and the current market emphasizes seasonal trends to help churn through inventory.


Celebs are all over the globe this week, and yet their bag choices are oddly in sync. Bags from Fendi and Saint Laurent are obvious faves, and a hot new style from Miu Miu has just made one of its first appearances on the site and you’re sure to have an opinion about it one way or another.
