Let’s Play Atelier

When someone compliments what you’re wearing, there’s many ways to respond. The short and sweet “thank you.” The person who doesn’t want to appear to spend frivolously “Thanks. It was totally on sale…super cheap!” The efficient one who likes to kill two birds with one stone “Thanks it’s [insert designer here] from [insert store name here].” But then there’s the ultimate response…the one that we’d all love to give, “Thanks, it’s custom.”

Bagpacks

Ever since The Row made a $39k alligator version, it seems like backpacks have been on our minds ever since. Thankfully Mary-Kate and Ashley have created a much more “affordable” leather version and pretty much every other designer has come up with some sort of backpack to fit the hands-free lifestyle we all wish to have. But sometimes this style can be a bit too sporty, and can make us look like we’re going to the gym (which is cool for some but not for everyone…like me, who loathes such a place) so today it’s all about the sophisticated backpack or as I like to call it, the bagpack (and I promise none of them will cost you five digits).

Fun In The Sun

After Giambattista Valli sent all 45 looks down the runway with sunglasses for his Fall 2014 Couture show yesterday, I thought that was a pretty badass move. We rarely see sunnies for couture, let alone on every single model in one show. Emoji claps for Giambattista. And a thumbs up for giving me an excuse to talk about my favorite accessory…
