About the Author : Marlene

I spent the last two weeks in LA and I can not tell you how great it was to be home with my family and close circle of best friends! In addition to spending quality time with loved ones, I went to fantastic parties and restaurants, including the opening party of Skin and Bones- Parallel Practices in Fashion and Architecture- at the Museum of Contemporary Art in downtown LA.This exhibition explores the common visual and intellectual principles that underlie both fashion and architecture. I wanted the technical experience to learn how the handbags are constructed. PB: Do you want to branch out from handbags? KK: I may go the route of doing accessories for accessories, as in charms for the bags. I like so many other designers that I feel like I have nothing to offer in terms of clothing! PB: Who do you have in mind when designing your bags? KK: I have designed many of my bags for my friends. Please stop using the sack, whatever that is, it does not sound like something we would approve of =) Marni Thin Balloon bag is available at Net A Porter for $1284, they ship internationally to most countries (including Australia). They have a very reasonable flat shipping rate of $55 for countries outside of US, Canada and UK. To me this is reasonable because it is much less than a flight to New York!Love,The Bag Snob. Fab Sugar reports on the stunning Oscar de la Renta Cruise 2008 collection A stunning flower dress from Diane von Furstenberg is the perfect summer dress $345 via NAP To my own dismay, Posh and Becks will not be appearing on Reality TV Celebrity Rumors Sometimes, you Christian Louis Vuitton Shoes don't really need a fancy, gimmick-y handbag. After Cheap Louis Vuitton Purses all, bags are supposed to be functional additions to a woman's wardrobe, and sometimes overdone and over-designed bags become less functional as a result of trying to achieve a desired look. For someone that still wants something functional and purse-shaped, I'd recommend the Gianni Chiarini Side Zip Hobo. It's a big, colorful hobo made out of decent leather that will look reasonably stylish without breaking the bank. It also zips open at the sides, allowing the carrier to expand the hobo's capacity to fit more stuff or decrease it for a slimmer profile, depending on that day's needs. My one bone to pick is that I hate leather finished with the semi-glossy finish that this bag has, as it tends to make bags look less expensive and high-end than they really are. Because this bag is reasonably priced, though, I won't count the leather's finish against it too strenuously. I wish it looked softer, but for overall bang for your buck and carrying versatility, this hobo would be a good choice. Buy through Nordstrom for $248 Lily has cancer (except maybe she doesn't), Serena's dad is back and refuses to leave, Dan tried to sell Vanessa out to steal her spot in the Tisch writing program, and Nate and Serena found out about Little Jenny Humphrey's sordid plans to break up their relationship. On top of all of that, we got another heart-wrenching Chuck-and-Blair scene, and I think I like her better when she hates him than when she loves him.
