Taylor Swift’s Little Red Dress Look

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift–talk about someone who deserves their tremendous success. Regardless of how you feel about her music, you have to admit that everything about her, be it her behavior or her work, is so much more dignified than that of many other stars her age.

This quality clearly translates into her style. Her outfit at the “An Unforgettable Evening” benefit is definitely sexy. But it’s also classy because she manages to look stunning without showing  a lot. That, right there, is the definition of glamor, IMHO.

Studded Satchels: Splurge vs. Steal

Pop quiz! Without cheating by looking at the labels, can you guess which of these bags costs more $1,000 and which one is about $60? Hard to tell, isn’t it? Who knew “spot the difference” could be so good for your wallet!

Yves Saint Laurent Zip-Top Easy Tote

Zip-Top Easy Tote, Medium ($995, Neiman Marcus)

Zip-Top Easy Tote, Medium ($995, Neiman Marcus)

Dayuuum. That’s all I have to say about the YSL Zip-Top Easy  Tote. No, seriously though, this may be the most fantastic bag I’ve ever seen.

That color! The website calls it red, but to me, it’s clearly pink. I realize that this color may limit the mass appeal of the bag. As someone who has phone, camera, laptop, iPod and wallet are all pink, I sometimes overlook this aspect. I think this is what makes this a gutsy, “I stand out” bag.

What else is perfect about the YSL Zip-Top Easy Tote? The size. 11″ x 16″ x 8″ means it will fit papers, a couple of folders, a little makeup bag and other stuff you need for the day. So that means you can take it to work! Isn’t that always the ultimate justification for a fashion purchase, whether you can use it for work or not?

I realize I may sound way too excited right now, but there must be something to pink bags if Sarah Jessica Parker wore one, right?

Marc Jacobs ‘Stardust Cecillia’ Studded Leather Satchel

'Stardust Cecillia' Studded Leather Satchel ($1,475, Marc Jacobs)

'Stardust Cecillia' Studded Leather Satchel ($1,475, Marc Jacobs)

Historic moment: StealThisDress! is reviewing its first “splurge worthy” purse. We’ve chosen Marc Jacobs’ phenomenal ‘Stardust Cecillia’ Studded Leather Satchel as one of the “it bags” for this fall.

Sprinkled with delightful goldtone studs, the ‘Stardust Cecillia’ does not lack sparkle. MJ even finds a way to serve up the shoulder strap with a generous dose of fabulosity in the form of a 14 inch gold chain. These metallic elements are right on target for next season. And what better color to take you into fall than a delicious purple?

Just imagine how amazing this bag will look with a cute little pea coat and boots. Yum!

Baghaus: Because a Girl Can Never Have Enough Bags

Faux Croc Aida Tote ($39, www.baghaus.com)

Faux Croc Aida Tote ($39, www.baghaus.com)

Designer handbags. They are the obsession of the majority of the female population, to the point that there are dozens of blogs devoted solely to covering the latest and greatest purses. Oh, why do they have to be so #$@$ expensive?! Argh.

Prime Fashionista Tote ($49.95, Baghaus)

Prime Fashionista Tote ($49.95, Baghaus)

If designer bags are as touchy of a subject for you as they are for me, have a look at Baghaus, whose specialty is designer and celebrity inspired styles. Their selection is quite large. Animal print, quilted a la Chanel, faux croc–you name, they got it.

I also love that almost every style is available in a whole bunch of colors. I spotted four or five bags that I’m dying to get just while browsing the first page.

In case you need a reason/justification to get a new bag–Baghaus is having a massive sale right now. Combined with the already affordable prices, this is a such a spectacular deal.
