What woman needs another new bag, right? We’re willing to break the “the holidays just happened so you can’t buy yourself something new” rule for a versatile hobo bag on sale for a whopping 50 percent off. It’s funky enough for a night out with the girls — without going into tacky studs overload! — and low-key enough to throw your books in for class. Heck, you could even use it as a diaper bag if babies are more your thing! A gorgeous satin lining will let you feel super chic, even though you know you got this bag for a steal. Now, every new bag needs a new pair of shoes to go with it, right …?

I don’t believe that’s how you make something that’s lasting — that becomes iconic as a design.”

I read (and by “read” I mean “look,” as there aren’t many words to begin with) Lucky religiously every month. For the most part, the clothes featured in the magazine are outside my price range (at least at full price), but I always get something out of the issue.
