Karl Lagerfeld has created a clutch for Chanel that’s perfect for the girl on the go. It’s also a great gift for those who like to splurge and a great investment on a classic piece of fashion history.
“All women have cell phones,” he says. Likely true, and this one fits all of your essentials.
Made of aged leather, velvet, suede or smooth leather it can easily be thrown in a bigger bag and work as a wallet or function as a lovely clutch for a fancy event.
Chanel Cell Phone and Credit Card Smart Bag, $765 – $975. Available in CHANEL boutiques starting May 2010.

For a while I was loving the rich dark green shade ala OPI’s Hong Kong collection but lately a more minty green has taken over the scene. From toes to fingernails I see this shade on the fashionable young and old.
I recently wore it on my fingers (can’t you tell I did it myself?!) and was chatted up by numerous girls searching for that exact shade. My pick? Essie’s Mint Candy Apple.
Other minty greens that are divine include:
Chanel’s in Jade (if you can hunt down a bottle)
Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Colour in Mint Sprint
OPI’s Go on Green!
Joe Fresh’s Mint
And check out Avon’s shades coming this fall.
If you can’t commit to funky greeny blue nails all day then try your toes. I reserve that for colours I’m wary of on my fingers!

If I could buy any watch right now it would likely be this one….
White literally matches everything and it will make a great addition to any wardrobe because it’s subtle but still makes a statement. But because I’m not exactly rolling in it I’ll settle for a variety of the still-chic but slightly more affordable alternatives. (Okay, the Gc watch below isn’t in the thousands like Chanel but at $575 it’s still totally out of my price range.)
Use this as your style inspiration and check out the Globe and Mail’s article this past weekend. Trust us, the style mavens there know a trend when they see one.
Stay tuned for some great affordable accessory options in our upcoming issues.
A good makeup bag should not only hold your precious beauty products but it should make you smile as well. I’ve gone through dozens- from a pristine white Chanel bag that I obviously destroyed in about five minutes to an incredibly cute travel case covered in hearts.
And now on to the next one. Exclusive to Sephora, the Summer of Lovers Bag Collection is inspired by the quirky street scene of the Tokyo Harajuku shopping district.
These funky-coloured bags caught my eye and the vibrant style of Gwen Stefani definitely shines through.
If you loved the doll-like bottles of the Harajuku Lovers Fragrances these cosmetic cases will be an instant hit.
Described as a ”fatal attraction to cuteness” find your own style in a clutch, organizer brush case, or a travel bag. You can also get the same set in the I Love Ice Cream Bag Collection that has a similar pattern and some sweet confectionary details.
Check them out on Sephora.com. They retail for $24 to $48.
Wouldn’t everyone love to look just as stylish as Gwyneth Paltrow? I know I want to be a bit more like her for the following reasons:
-she’s in her late thirties and looks amazing in a mini-skirt,
-she previously dated Brad Pitt,
-she has a personal trainer and the time to sculpt every muscle on her body,
-and finally she is a successful movie star.
But since none of the above are in the cards right now (come on now, Brad is with Angelina for the moment) we can only attempt to emulate some of her style. Yup, Gwyneth has her own website called Goop. Why you ask? Good question. It’s slightly condescending and a bit maddening to read and yet it’s so addicting.
Under the “Get” category in her blog she describes her fashionable pursuits. She says that now that she’s a mother she doesn’t have time to figure out what to wear so she just sticks to the classics: a good old Gucci shoe, a Chanel dress, the usual. Clearly this website will drive you a bit nuts because she suggests mini-skirts and Louboutins as regular wear but her suggestions are helpful in theory. In her blog called “my uniform” she shows pictures of herself in different outfits (kind of like playing dress up with the stars) and pairs different pieces together to make cute outfits.
Check it out. There are different categories too, ranging from foods Paltrow likes to make, to places she likes to stay when she travels. The holiday detox diet is pretty hilarious. It’s basically water and veggies for a week. No thank you, but I will take what I can from her style advice.
And yes, I signed up for her newsletter which I kind of love. Let the fascination continue.
