10th Commandment: May 5

May 5, 2014

If you’re looking for a new handbag for summer, consider buying a navy satchel. ¬†It has all the versatility of a neutral but is a more unique choice than brown or grey.

  1. Sigh. Oh, Zac Posen, how I love you. Reasonable price, too, although still out of my price range this summer.

  2. I had been carrying a grey bag for the last year or so (gone are the days when I’m switching handbags every morning) and just purchased a navy quilted shoulder bag that can go cross body. So far I’m loving how versatile the color is but I also LOVE the cross body for walking to work!

  3. Zac Posen’s structured satchels have always attracted me, and the price isnt too bad for the quality..but I am not a bag person and that completely throws me off. But I do need a good bag,so this a good set of suggestions..May be the paid intern will work..Thanks again Belle ūüôā

    When you start school again could you do a post about what bag you’re using for your laptop and books? I’m going back in January and I want to buy something before I don’t have a salary anymore.

    The leather on the Zac Posen looks super soft. It’s gorgeous!

    Belle, what are you going to be carrying to school? Backpack? Large tote? I’m starting back grad school in a few weeks and can’t decide what to purchase.

  7. As a former law student who really wanted to carry a nice bag and look sleek etc. my best advice is get a big ol’ North Face backpack and just deal. Unless you only study at school you’re gong to be lugging some heavy books. Some girls who drove in managed it, but if you need to walk or take public transit you’ll end up trading your pretty book bag for a backpack pretty fast.

    • Morgan says:

      Agreed – I’m a returning student and finishing up 1L. We have lockers on campus, but even so, a backpack was necessary most of the time. The majority of students used backpacks, so at least you won’t be alone.

      This semester has had fewer books (one professor joined the modern age; everything needed for class was housed online) so I was able to switch to a Lo & Sons OG bag, which is by far the best laptop/everyday bag I have ever owned. Give them a look. Congrats on school, Annie!

Happy Hour: Atlantic Beach Pie

There are two kinds of people in this world: People who eat cake on their birthdays and people who don’t. ¬†And some of the weirdos in the latter category (I said what I said) eat pie as an alternative. ¬†So if you’re a “birthday pie” eater with a late summer celebration coming up, may I […]

The Find: The Only Wire-Free Bra That Didn’t Fail Me

After Sloane was born, I developed a seething hatred for underwire bras.  The trouble was that I had also developed a larger, slightly droopier bust.  It was a cruel irony.

Our tween and teen nieces spent the first half of 2023 reviving our high school fashions. ¬†From peasant tops to low rises, I felt like I was back bopping to N’SYNC in my mint-green sedan for a minute. ¬†Now, our 20-something direct reports are bringing back the 2010s in a big way, and I am […]

The Find: Bright and Striped

For the past few years, the wardrobes of many influencers have tilted toward the beige and boring. ¬†I’m all for a good basic, but staple pieces can only take you so far. ¬†Sometimes, you need to wear something that has a little something extra, and this sale-priced tee certainly does.
