Shopping for them always makes me daydream of some spontaneous getaway scenario in which I decide to head somewhere…

Could Your Designer Bag Prevent Your Boyfriend From Cheating?

Back in college, a girl had a crush on my longtime boyfriend and she was persistent in letting him know it. She flirted with him shamelessly and she even did it in front of me. I tried to nicely (albeit, obviously) clue her in that we were engaged. I casually flashed my ring at her,…

It’s Here! Anna Dello Russo’s Gorgeously Gilded Accessories Collection For H&M

It was only a matter of time before Vogue Japan editor-at-large and totally OTT fashionista Anna Dello Russo got to put her medal of approval on a line of her own, and it’s only natural that she of the outrageous fascinators and tacky-goes-high fashion opulence would cut her design teeth on — what else? —…
