Spring trend alert: Cool floral accessories for women that have nothing to do with Laura Ingalls.

I’ve had my eye on this floral trend for awhile now, but it took seeing the gorgeous Rebecca Minkoff floral trim cross body bag below to finally convince me that I could pull it off–with the caveat that I need to be focusing on cool floral accessories. No flower pants or gauzy floral skirts for me. And now that it’s finally spring (YAY SPRING) it’s time to make my move. If you love the floral look but want a modern, on-trend way to wear them, take a peek at these cool floral accessories for spring that you can wear all...

The new Coach bags: The coolest of colorblock for spring

Ooh, how the new Coach bags are tempting me this spring. I’ve loved the whole colorblock trend even before it was hot, which means I’ve got lots of pieces I can pull right out of my closet and wear in a snap. But these stylish handbags are giving me a little something new to freshen up my wardrobe. I’m a little obsessed with stripes, but you don’t have to be to fall immediately in love with the Coach Borough bag. It’s one of the coolest and most chic of the new Coach bags, let alone any of the black and white bags I’ve...

The chic new bags from Brit-Stitch. When you’ve outgrown the need to carry your entire life in your bag.

As many things as I miss about having little ones, I love that I can now leave the house with little more than my phone, wallet, keys, and maybe an emergency lollipop for the kids. This means I can also revert back to my smaller handbags more frequently than date nights. And the new bags from Brit-Stitch are a gorgeous new option for spring. Taking a very strong cue from the original Cambridge Satchel, and the myriad traditional British satchel bags that are so popular now, Brit-Stitch adds something new to the purse party with a selection of make-your-own...

A bespoke, totally un-awkward gift for the teen girl who has everything

When I was a teen, there was no such thing as an iTunes gift card. No, we had to walk both ways to Turtles and work our fingers to the bone making mix tapes. It’s just as hard today to find a gift for a teen girl that says “I understand you and am not tragically unhip.” But we think this personalized coin purse is just right. And you can pop a gift card in there too. Handmade in NYC, each coin purse is crafted of natural linen and lined with quilting fabric with a name or word embroidered on the...

Having a heart for Valentine’s Day

While I’m all for fun chocolates and roses and jewelry on Valentine’s Day (I’m sentimental like that) I also love a gift that gives back for any holiday at all. A great idea: The Project (RED) heart tote bag now on sale at Fab.com. For a mere $11, you get a sweet, sturdy, canvas tote that lets you boldly show your support of Project (RED), one of our very favorite organizations, while knowing a portion of the proceeds directly funds HIV/AIDS programs that happen to be wildly effective. Also, here’s a hint: chicks love guys who have a heart. Trust...

Probably not a bag for the kids.

I love everything about this shopper bag by Wild & Wolf — the color, the size, the price, and the fact that it somehow magically knows exactly what is in my bag at any given moment! If you’re a parent, probably best that you carry this tote around before the kid is old enough to actually be able to read it. Or hey, just hang it on that hook behind your bedroom closet door for you know…randomness. That’s what it’s made for. Get the Random Crap tote bag at Burke Decor. And then you know what to fill it...

Breast pump handbags that pump up the style

I’m always on the lookout for anything that makes life easier for nursing moms like myself (like these excellently cool nursing tops). And I can tell you from experience that returning to work after maternity leave is a particularly daunting process if you’re nursing and need to schlep a breast pump and bag of pumping accessories. Ugh. I feel like a Grand Canyon mule, lugging all of my pumping gear wherever I go. So I’m pretty pumped (heh) about Juno Blu‘s gorgeous line of bags — all specifically designed for pumping moms. How awesome is that? Juno Blu purses fit most breast...

The coolest jewelry, handbags and accessories: Editors’ Best of 2013

As much as we love picking gear, goodies, and gifts for kids, we just can’t help ourselves when it comes to picking pretties for ourselves, especially from indie brands and small artists. From cool jewelry and handbags to gorgeous accessories to bring our wardrobe staples to the 21st century, we think moms need special somethings too. Maybe even lots of them. So to close out our Editors Picks of 2013, here are our very favorites from 2013, which we think will still look fabulous in 2014 too. Good, because we’ll still be wearing them.   K20 by Karen Ko...
