Discovery of the Week: Golden Ponies

 Untitled #73

For the girl with a retro-inspired, vintage type of wardrobe, these wear-everyday staples from Golden Ponies are right up your fashionable alley. I discovered the line recently and I've been smitten with everything from their vegan all-purpose backpacks, to their over-the-shoulder bags to wear when spending a day traipsing around the city, to the color blocked d'orsay flats, and more. Prices are affordable and everything is hand-crafted and sewn by a small, independent company in Mexico. I'll have one of each, please.

Six Bucket Bags Worth the Investment


Untitled #72


It's the day after Christmas and you might very well be loaded down with some new, fun things. Or, maybe you're in purge mode and want to clean your house, your car, your purse. There's no better way to start out 2014 than with a new purse, and the bucket bag will serve you well in the upcoming year. These six options are have enough structure to stay upright, while holding all your essentials in a fresh, modern presentation. Prices range from $69 to $495. My favorite: No. 3, the brandy-colored beauty by Mansur Gavriel.
