As with many things in life, the little things are often the big things in matters of importance. Fashion is no different–it’s the magic of the details that really push a collection from being good to great. (And it also ensures your goodie bag is at least a little covered if you plan on streaking at NYFW.) More
All I want is a nice, preferably leather shoulder bag that isn’t a weird color, doesn’t have studs or gigantic hardware and isn’t really cheaply made. More
It’s like The Gromble, but way, way worse. More
Because the United States is terrified of absolutely everything, a harmless eighth grade boy was suspended yesterday for carrying a purse. Not an exploding purse, not a purse with a gun in it, not a purse with “death to the President” written on it. Just a purse. More
As Fashion Month draws to a close, we must pick up the pieces and filter out the relevant information. So far, we know the Spring 2014 collections were all very Spring-y, the front rows were all very famous, and the models were all very white.
But! There were still surprises to be found in New York, London, Paris and Milan, as the accessories stole the show time and time again. Here’s 25 gorgeous, striking and occasionally very wacky bags from Fashion Month, featuring Oscar de la Renta, Victoria Beckham, rag & bone, Christian Dior, Viktor + Rolf, Lanvin and more!

Or, at the very least, nicer than mine, which is easy because I spent $9.50 on my bag and it came with free socks. More
Apparently a woman with a fancy designer handbag is perceived as someone with a “more devoted partner,” and therefore other women are less likely to try and steal him (and his wallet), because all women do is compete for men and beat each other mercilessly with $2000 purses in Swarovski-studded Thunderdomes.

Sometimes you just don’t want to carry a purse, am I right, ladies? More
Apparently, women lose about $400 worth of products each year. The easiest way to combat that: getting some sweet makeup cases to prevent this loss. Lots of them are quite ugly and boring, though, so we have found several that you might just love. Hopefully, this will make you more likely to actually use an organizer, but at the very least, they’ll be adorable accessories for your room! More
“I don’t recommend a cross-body or sling bag, which will overwhelm your shape.” This is good advice, as the leading cause of death for women under 5’4″ is suffocation by purse. More
Do you ever look at your pocketbook and wish it was filled not with change, lint, and various old lipsticks, but delicious, life improving box wine? If you, like me, have frequently harbored this desire (and really, who hasn’t?), then the (awesome name alert!) “Baggy Winecoat” is the just the product for you. More
Lifestyle guru/singer/actress/supermom/Hollywood royalty/chef (but so relatable!) Gwyneth Paltrow is the new face of Coach. Hilarity ensues. More
