No Spring (or Summer) wardrobe is complete without its statement bag, and that's where our ultimate bag guide will serve you well. When our favorite models strutted down the Spring '13 runways, we paid extra attention to their arm candy — every handle, every zipper, every shape — and now we're translating those styles into trends you can shop at all price points. Judging from the colorblocked bags and printed silhouettes to the seriously textured investment and must-have party clutch, we promise there's something in here for everyone. Just click through to find your It bag now.
May is the month to celebrate your special pet. From the excitement of the Kentucky Derby to the cuteness of baby ducklings, May begins with Save the Rhino Day and closes with Pink Flamingo Day, with several other animal-related holidays and events throughout. Check out this collection of cool must haves that commemorate National Pet Month and all the other special days in May.
Lucite clutches are (clearly) having a major moment in the spotlight — all you have to do is zoom in on the red carpet for further proof. First spotted on the Spring '13 runways at Gucci and Chanel, these Lucite handhelds have made their way to the Hollywood circuit, and with that comes even more inspired ways to wear them. Solange Knowles is the proud owner of not one, but two styles, while Sophia Bush and Olivia Palermo have both sported brighter neon versions. Step inside to get a closer look at how the stars are styling their Lucite clutches and score your own.
Plus, you can shop our editors' (other) clear-bag picks directly from the ultimate Spring '13 bag guide.
Straight from the Spring 2013 runways of Burberry Prorsum, Chanel, Gucci, and Stella McCartney, we're loving the clear detailing on these accessories. Lucite clutches, as seen on Solange Knowles and Sophia Bush, are perfect for night, while clear details on Christian Louboutin shoes make your legs look endless. Watch the video for our picks, and then shop below to rock the trend yourself.
Warning: our latest obsession might put some extra pep in your step — Jonathan Adler's happy, chic collection for JCP delivers the designer's signature look at a price point we can applaud. While the pieces (which range from small accessories to statement furniture) are currently available online only, we're anticipating the boutique-like in-store shops for the collection will launch soon. In the meantime, see the pieces we're eager to scoop!
Our latest shoe — rather, shoe color — obsession may not exactly fall into this season's lighter, brighter palette, but it certainly does make a serious case for red's unequivocal statement-making power. It boils down to this: we love the idea of sticking to the outfit basics (we're talking white tee and denim cutoffs here). So, when one accessory can do all the work, that's kind of like styling nirvana — herein lies the appeal of a great red sandal.
Whether the shoe be flat-soled and adorned with the bare two-strap minimum or come complete with a chunky platform and sexier lace-up details, the idea is to turn heads with one fell swoop of standout red and a cool silhouette to match. And let us remind you that these sandals were made to be worn for day and night. So, if this weekend's brunch calls for a red-hot pick-me-up, then look no further than our picks — at every heel height and price point — below.
She's a mother, an author, and an award-winning actress — and now she's People magazine's Most Beautiful Woman. But, in case you missed it, we're turning our attention to Gwyneth Paltrow's killer shoe collection. Sexy sandals, edgy ankle boots, and unique creations from some of the most iconic designers — Jimmy Choo, Giuseppe Zanotti, and Brian Atwood, to name a few — rest side by side in one of the greatest shoe collections to exist. Whether you've been poring over Gwyneth's seriously chic shoes for years or you're a Paltrow rookie, take a stroll down memory lane with 56 of her most enviable heels ever.
Keep your pup in great shape with these healthy low-fat dog biscuits, which are easier than you think to make. Instead of heading to the store for artisan treats, you can toss these together with simple organic ingredients that only cost a couple of bucks. Plus, you can easily tailor the biscuits to your pup's taste.
Free of sugar, oils, additives, and preservatives, these munchies are just the right thing to keep your loyal friend happy, healthy, and begging for more. Rather than using peanut butter as a base, these healthy low-fat dog biscuits are made with organic pumpkin puree and fresh spinach. Pumpkin is beneficial to your pup's digestive health, full of antioxidants, and aids in keeping your dog at his ideal weight. And spinach is packed with vitamins and iron.
Some of Spring's coolest accessories have gone to the dogs — and in the very best way — in Avenue32's latest editorial, Fashion Unleashed.
Like the adorable pomeranian in the Tous ads that came before them, these dogs look like expert models. Avenue32 tasked five dogs with sitting, sniffing, and moving around sunglasses, scarves, handbags, and one pair of cage heels from a variety of talented designers and brands. Phillip Lim's 31 Second Clutch makes an appearance alongside a curious British Bulldog named Papillon, and a Bedlington Terrier named Wilfred gets a shot of color with a silk scarf.
A look at all the dogs and their accessories, here in the gallery.
