Phoebe Philo

i am officially afraid of phoebe. too talented, too effortless, too chic, for any good use. season after season, she never ceases to amaze.

as i mentioned on my ‘insta’, i’ve moved my celine ‘all soft’ shoulder bag — circa 2013 — into my fall 2017 rotation. although it still suffers from ‘heavy when empty’ syndrome, it remains modern…which never goes out of style.

Speedy – Louis Vuitton

it bags come and it bags go. but really, if you’re looking for a classic that’ll stand the test of time — and if you’re not…you should be — it’s all about the speedy. pricey, but not too. neither too big nor too small. welcome to a ‘just right’ goldilocks moment. she doesn’t scream ‘i’m a designer handbag’, she just sighs, ‘i’m fashionable and smart’…and perfectly  utilitarian. guaranteed to be around long after the it bag of the year. put her on your wish list. hurry.
