By all accounts, I am not the neatest or most organized person out there. Which is why anytime I’m presented with an organizational solution that is easy and chic, I am totally game. I’ve long been a fan of Henri Bendel‘s multi-purpose bags, pouches, carrying cases, and just about every one of their glamorous holdalls that make my life just a wee bit neater.

The most recent addition to improve the chaotic condition of my jewelry is this beautiful Jewelry Book. This perfect little case folds up so compactly yet holds tons of bangles and baubles. With three pockets, five zippered pouches, eight earrings holders, and snaps galore–this case is perfect for a getaway and home storage too. And with the option to monogram the case in store, it makes the perfect bridesmaid or Holiday gift for anyone in your life.

Every day, we bring you celebrity sightings and stylings as seen everywhere from the streets to the red carpet. Whether they’re dolled up or dressed down, we can’t resist the need to know who wore what.

It looks like we’re not the only ones that are embracing a neutral palette this fall. Of course, while we might be opting for clothes that are black and white and shades in between, we make it a priority to choose statement-making accessories. While Jessica Chastain‘s gorgeous red hair can sometimes serve as an accessory in and of itself, we’re dubbing those vibrant green baubles the cherry on top of this look.

Style Scoop: Topshop’s #UNLOCK5th Campaign, Victoria Beckham is UK’s Most Successful Entrepreneur, Mila Kunis Designs Jewelry

By  October 27, 2014

StyleScoopOct27As Topshop prepares to make its 5th Avenue debut (and celebrates a particularly amazing “get” with Beyoncé as a new partner), its social media campaign is generating buzz. The #UNLOCK5th initiative consists of video and photo content from “style leaders” including Julia Restoin Roitfeld, Hailey Baldwin, Kate Foley, Adam Gallagher and Holy Ghost. Throughout the week, each leader will be posting about what Topshop and New York means to them. [Women’s Wear Daily]

Victoria Beckham was named the UK’s most successful entrepreneur of 2014, according to business magazine Management Today. She tops the list of Britain’s top 100 entrepreneurs, who are ranked by turnover, growth and job creation in the last five years combined with the entrepreneur’s wealth overall. Beckham’s £210 million worth gives the term “fashionista” a whole new meaning. [The Telegraph]

“Mommy” isn’t Mila Kunis’ only new role—she’s also a jewelry designer. The actress, who is an ambassador for Gemfields, designed an emerald ring with jewelry brand Marina B to celebrate motherhood. The 18-karat yellow gold ring retails for $4,800 and is available through special order through Marina B’s website. One hundred percent of the sales profits will be donated to Gemfields Nkana Health Center in Zambia to support the addition of a maternity clinic. [Women’s Wear Daily]

If you’re got it, flaunt it…and promote a good cause with it, too. Models Andreea Diaconu and Liu Wen star in promotional images for the Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF). Eric Guillemain photographed the models, who sported jeans and t-shirts reading “Drop in the Ocean.” The EJF aims to protect the natural environment and the people and wildlife that depend on it.

Great-grandniece of Henri Bendel Hayden Lasher is following in her family’s footsteps by launching her own line of handbags. Lasher collaborated with Belgian shoes, a 300-year-old company that produces just one style: a simple loafer embellished with a dainty bow. The designer took cues from the manufacturer and only makes one design, available in a range of colors and materials. Taylor Swift has already caught wind of the bags, so we’re guessing it’s only a matter of time before her fashionable followers do, too. [Women’s Wear Daily]

Editor's Pick: Donatienne Jordie Bag

Let it be known: Donatienne has forever heightened handbag standards and changed the purse game for me. Nothing will ever be the same. I can explain.

Launched in 2011 and fronted by Los Angeles based designer Nikki Erwin, the brand provides savvy style seekers with cool, California inspired handbags that hail a high-fashion feel. Each piece embodies Erwin’s eye for sensible design, careful craftsmanship, and time-transcending style.

While every Donatienne line provides customized beauty in it’s own way–cool, graphically inclined clutches, smooth, oversized totes, and everything it between–her cross-body collection captured my attention for their effortless, everyday appeal. The “Jordie,” as my particular style is named, serves up unmatched suppleness with its buttery leather casing and soft suede lining. It was everything I had hoped for in an investment bag for daily usage, proving both versatile and effortless, yet chic and unique. A roomy inside, protected by a flap closure that opens for even more storage space made for a perfect size. The heavy brass hardware and subtle fringe detailing gave it a stylish flair. Handbag happiness had never looked so good.

Beyoncé Teams With Topshop

By  October 27, 2014

BeyTopshopWe really hope you haven’t reached your wardrobe’s athleisure quota yet, because this is something you’re going to want to hold out for. Beyoncé is joining forces with London-based Topshop to produce an athletic street wear brand. But, this isn’t just your average celebrity-retailer one-off collaboration. It’s an entire business unto itself. Topshop owner Sir Philip Green told Women’s Wear Daily, “This is not a collaboration. This is about building a brand and building a business—a separate, proper business with separate overhead and a separate office.”

With Topshop’s need to get into the growing athletic sector and Beyoncé’s star power and loyalty to the brand, the partnership makes complete sense. For the yet unnamed line, Beyoncé would work closely with the product development team to “create and produce a technical and fashion-led collection,” the singer said. By fall 2015 at the earliest, the Topshop-Beyoncé collection will be available in stores and online and will encompass clothing, footwear and accessories. Whether you’re a dancer, avid gym-goer or athlete (or just a huge Beyoncé fan with a penchant for cool street style), there will surely be something for you. Green even mentioned the possibility of Beyoncé creating workout videos for Topshop, which would really just bring athleisure to a whole new level.

Kate Middleton‘s style, while enviable and feminine, usually doesn’t surprise. But with this look, our beloved Duchess of Cambridge came as a bit of a shock, but proved that she could do risqué right. A pregnant Middleton attended the Action on Addiction Gala dinner at L’Anima in London wearing a skin-baring, yet tasteful, black frock. Ladies, take note: if you’re going for cutoutsthis is how you really do it.

Editor’s Pick: Pack it Up in the Dagne Dover Mini Tote

By  October 24, 2014

Discover your next obsession with our Editor’s Pick series, must-have products for your home, wardrobe, makeup bag, and office curated by Glam editors.

Dagne Dover

The one thing I don’t want to be called in New York City is a bag lady; but the one thing I’m not going to do is leave an essential at home.

When I head out every morning, I know there’s no coming back—if my agenda calls for work, #gymflow, happy hour, or covering a star-studded event, I’m going to need the tablet, athletic gear, lipstick, and heels to carry me beyond the 9-to-5. But hauling a hefty purse/tote/gym bag combo is not conducive to flexing on the ‘Gram. So, when it comes to balancing it all, Dagne Dover is my go-to.

The Dagne Dover Mini Tote keeps my must-haves on deck and preserves order in an otherwise messy place. Let’s face it—digging into the bottomless pit of your bag to find a business card or pen isn’t fun, especially at the expense of keeping your cool. With it’s no-fuss structure and compartments for every pretty girl vice, the Dagne Dover Mini Tote makes sure I keep it together at all times.

That Dagne Dover mantra is personified with large canvas totes, mini totes, and clutch wallets that, miraculously, have space—and a place!—for everything. Its aesthetic rivals luxury, high fashion bags and represents the intersection of where fashion and functionality meet. Best of all, each design is priced between $165 and $345, so you’ll never fall victim to splurging on that seasonal It-bag. That is something this Glam girl can be glad about.
