Weekly Baggage: Building as Bag

August 7, 2008 at 4:05 pm (Weekly Baggage)


This Rebecca Minkoff reminds me of a building I saw yesterday somewhere on Franklin St. The yellow and brown made for a striking color combination that highlighted the Victorian details of the building.

Weekly Baggage: Chloe Color Block

This color block bag feels wonderfully lively for fall. The gold chains and tassles make it both luxe and preppy without losing any of the quirkiness.

Weekly Baggage: Making up for lost posts

July 11, 2008 at 6:23 pm (Weekly Baggage)

I’m having a tough time tearing my mind away from the FG’s fabulous new skirt, but I’ve been terribly remiss in my Weekly Baggage duties and so am going to try to make it up to you. But first, I must explain my mood as it has an obvious impact on my selections. First and foremost, I am feeling girly. No, not girly…womanly. Think less frills and lace, more curves and heavy lashes. Second, I am going through a preppy phase. Argyle, Burberry plaids, green and pink, and anything resembling tennis whites seem to be the epitome of crisp and fresh in a pampered sort of way that the current wilting heat doesn’t realistically allow. 


Fendi Pleated Clutch
My favorite? It’s a tie between the Lanvin and the Ferragamo.

Weekly Baggage: Pucci on a sugar high

June 26, 2008 at 9:07 pm (Weekly Baggage)

Pucci is always so playful, but there’s something about this color combination and the lunchbox shape that makes me think of old-fashioned candy stores with bins and scoops.

Weekly Baggage: Tory Tory Everywhere

June 12, 2008 at 7:54 pm (Weekly Baggage)


I know we’ve all moved past the Reva. They’re cute, simple, functional, and comfortable, so of course, they’re totally over, but you have to hand it to Ms. Burch: that logo is brilliant. It is instantly recognizable without plastering her name all over everything and it can be resized and reenvisioned without losing an ounce of its brand association. For me, it evokes medieval forms like the quatrefoil and the Greek Key, one of my favorite patterns. It’s ubiquitous in her line, but the use of it on this bag intrigues me.
