• Bag Lust: Valentino Pre-Fall 2013


    Valentino accessories have been all the rage for the past few seasons, thanks to the fashion house’s coveted Rockstud shoes and handbags. The brand’s latest offerings for Pre-Fall 2013 feature the standout studs in a number of iterations: tonal red, against leopard-print pony hair, gone glam with allover black crystals, and more.

    Talk about statement-making accessories! These designs are not for the faint of heart and cleverly combine exotics with edge and glamour.

    I’m an “excess is best” kind of woman, so my favorite pieces in the collection are among the boldest selections. The Rouge Studded Flap Clutch is high atop my wish list and is a splurge, but definitely a lifelong investment.
