Balenciaga Wedges Keep Your Ankles Happy


Lately, I've been looking for open toe shoes that have a wedge due to an Achilles tendon problem. Hard to believe but a wedge is the most comfortable shoe to help with this nagging ankle problem.

Although I haven't been a fan of their handbags (passe in my book) for … [Read more...]

Does Your Handbag Need a Raincoat?


There's nothing more annoying than getting caught in the rain while your out of town. I was in NYC yesterday and of course it starts to rain.

When Life Hands You Lemons Shop Dolce & Gabbana


I love Dolce & Gabbana's latest whimsical bags but here's the thing...they're seasonal, very pricey and made of cork or raffia. Although Dolce & Gabbana's bags are totally adorable, they're well over three grand (closer to four) and the bags are totally summer. Sadly, many of us have passed on summer shopping and are already purchasing fall. Money to burn on these … [Read more...]
