Sad but true: I haven’t carried a proper handbag since fashion week.
| by Jenny Feldman |

I always make an effort during the shows because I don’t want to be that girl schlepping the huge, bottomless, dirty tote bag spilling out with receipts, random shoes and pacifiers (hello, I’m a mom!). But the truth is, I am that girl and not the girl with the quilted Chanel. Okay, I have a quilted Chanel too—and lots of other nice bags—but they fit only about .2 % of my life. So, usually, I go to work with a ginormo canvas tote; on a bad day, I’ve got two of ’em.

Scarf Chic

The scarf has been a classic fashion accessory for decades, donned by style icons like Jackie Onassis and Nina Simone. But for me, it all started with the infamous Nicole Richie. Sexy skinny jeans, super-sized sunglasses and stylish scarves screamed swank, yet simple, to me. I just love the style. And a lot of others do as well.

Scarves can be found everywhere and on everyone these days, and not just for warmth (for those of you who thought scarves only kept away the cold), but for fashion. You can always see celebrities on your favorite blog rocking a scarf or at least see every other person walking down the street with one on.
