Ella’s Fashion Tour of London

In December, I was lucky enough to be invited to join my boyfriend and his parents on a trip to London. I had been to London once before when I was ten years old, and my memories of that trip are fuzzy; therefore, I was thrilled to have a chance to explore the city as an adult. Of course, London is at its most extravagant during the holiday season. Almost every street was decked in lights that would put D.C. holiday street decor to shame. The whole city was in the holiday spirit! London is a pretty glamorous city, so …

Spring 2017 Accessory Trend: Extreme Bags

Clockwise from top left: Celine  |  Stella McCartney  |  Marni  |  Valentino . Massive or mini, extreme seems to be the designer message this season. Playing with proportions is fun of course, just remember you aren’t expected to fill up that oversize tote or take the mini one anywhere but out to dinner. Perhaps the hands-free trend is the most practical of trends, especially for those of us walking around with kids and dogs. The Darlene Fanny pack with Turquoise would be sooo chic with everything for summer. Which one is your favorite? Happy Shopping! . Oversized Bags Celine  |  Jil Sander …

The Best Eco-Friendly, Vegan Handbags

Lately we’ve been getting a lot more client requests for vegan leather items. Vegan leather sounds like a planet-friendly choice, but it isn’t always. A lot of faux leather is actually made from PVC, which creates dioxins that pollutes waterways and soil and are toxic to our own health. We thought we’d help you out by sharing some of the most eco-friendly brands out there, all of which have sustainable manufacturing practices and use Polyurethane (PU) and other recycled or man made materials. Happy Eco-Friendly Shopping! . Angela Roi Although they were both born in South Korea, Angela and Roi Lee …

Thom Browne’s Menagerie

Pardon me ma’am, but is that a purse or a pet you’re carrying? Thom Browne‘s Americana crossed with whimsical style began with those skinny, cropped mens suits. Now he brings us an expanded women’s accessory line featuring fish, ducks and dachshunds. I think the Small Whale Bag in Pebbled Calf would make a great everyday black purse, myself. Thom’s inspiration was his father’s doctor bag. And so his male customers don’t feel left out, he made them a turtle backpack that is seriously office-appropriate. No, seriously. Happy Shopping! P.S. The prices are not for the faint of heart and the designs are not …
