When it comes to jewelry, do you go for costume or fine? Or perhaps mix it up? I’d say a majority like to keep it mixed, which is exactly why designers are starting to dabble in both categories. So now if you want a $150 bracelet or a $1,500 bracelet…you can get it from the same designer! HALLELUJAH!
Balenciaga City. Givenchy Nightingale. Proenza Schouler PS1. Chanel 2.55. What do these all have in common? They’re classic handbags, signature to their designer. But fashion seems to be moving in this direction where we don’t necessarily need a big designer name attached to our bag to make the investment. The perfect example of this is what I like to call the new classic — M2MALLETIER.
It’s cold, it’s holiday season and I’ve seen the sun maybe once in the last week…so with all this going on, we can use a little pick-me-up. So why not kick off your weekend with some cute animals that make fashion ad campaigns and lookbooks so much better? Like a sloth with some Mansur Gavriel bags, for example…

When it comes to fashion, you can find pretty much anything you want at a low, middle and high price point, depending on what you want to spend and the quality of the product. But the one item that is the most difficult to find in that middle category? Bags. Why? I can’t answer that, but it is a constant frustration when not everyone wants to spend a thousand dollars (or more) on an accessory. I’ve already dedicated an entire post to this, appropriately titled The Bag Gap, but that was before I found out about Kara (which is actually designed by a Sarah…)
