5 It-Bags for Spring

•••
Every season brings a new it-bag and this spring is no exception. I’ve picked out 5 of the most chic bags that will be spotted all around town in the next few months. The pale blue Balenciaga is a structured beauty. The gold buckle detailing adds an understated elegance to the bag. The navy geometric printed Victoria Beckham bag is just… everything. The patt[...]

Rent Before You Splurge...

•••
I am on a mission to make a couple of designer bag purchases this year but just buying a bag outright without research isn’t a (smart) option for me. The idea of “trying out” a purse before I splurge is genius to me! First, I have to do some research. What brand and style am I looking for? There is much more to it than just finding the bag. Do you want to[...]

Sporty Chic

•••
One of the absolute hottest trends of the moment is the sporty chic look. It’s all about merging clean-lined modern pieces with slouchy casual gymwear. It creates an effortless cool-girl vibe. And hey, the biggest perk... it’s actually comfortable. One of the key elements of this trend is a good pair of athletic jogger pants. The jogger pant is a slimmer cut[...]

Spring Break Style: What to Pack

•••
We are daydreaming at work about palm trees rustling in the wind, smoothie in hand, warm sunshine on our face. We feel like we’re already on break… but then the copy machine beeps, the phone rings, and we remember that there’s one major obstacle still between us and our glorious vacation… packing. Often the most dreaded part of the travel process, we are goi[...]

Handbag Sightings...

•••
This past February love was in the air at the Chicago Auto Show. As most Chicagoans know, their buzzing metropolis is the heartbeat of the Midwest. With designer boutiques and department stores featured on streets like Michigan Ave, they earn the label as one of the chicest cities in the nation. Donald Trump and Oprah can tell you it’s the definition of eleg[...]

Céline

•••
While looking toward the upcoming season, we came across this Céline Bum Bag and could not help but compare it to a modern day fanny pack - and a luxe one at that! Made of natural calfskin and oh-so-chic, we wonder, LOVE it? Or HATE it? Its simplicity and ease make its way into our “WANT IT” list, but does it make its way into your “Gotta Have It" list? We a[...]

Pretty Pastels:

•••
Of all the pieces that go into an outfit, the accessories are the most fun. This time of year, we start to get a little antsy with all of the greys, browns, and blending in. It’s time to bring back that color into the mix. And the way fashion does that in the first few months of the year, is with the prettiest pastels. Popping these light hues into an outfit[...]

Romantic Style: What to wear on Valentine's Day

•••
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and with it the flurry of figuring out what to give the sweethearts in our lives and how to spend the holiday. There’s so much love in the air, so why not dress the part! Whether you’re popping in a bit of red or pink, or going head-to-toe, monochromatic in an iconic Valentine’s Day hue, there are many ways to look f[...]

SO Ready For Spring!

•••
As the snow flies outside, I can only imagine how sweet spring is going to feel in just a few short weeks.  My three ‘can’t live withouts’ for spring are crossbody bags (they’re hands-free, a no brainer), bucket bags and totes. Crossbody bags for the city to make it simple, like the Cèline Trios’ in a splash of color. The bucket bag, they aren’t going away a[...]

Hooked on Moschino

•••
I remember the first time I saw Moschino handbags. It was in the early 90s and I was shopping in Seattle. In the window were some glorious colorful leather embellished bags with the word MOSCHINO dangling from chains. One look, and I was hooked. It was the first time fashion made me feel happy, and it was fun. This was new, and it was awesome. Jump to 25 [...]
