Nice Day for a White Wedding

Summer months fill up quickly with invites since this is the most popular season for weddings. If you’re stumped as to how to dress for a wedding, we’ve come to the rescue! Follow a few quick rules of thumb and you’ll be able to navigate wedding style with ease.

1) Never upstage the bride. This means no white dresses and nothing fancier than the Vera Wang she’s wearing.

2) Single women often treat weddings like a man-buffet, but being on the prowl for a significant other is no reason to dress immodestly at a wedding. Stick with modest looks – most men prefer it anyway!

3) Dress simply and let your fabulous accessories complete your outfit. You can easily make one great dress work for all the weddings on your social schedule by simply rotating the types of accessories you wear with it. All items in our style sets are under $100!

We put together three wedding-appropriate looks, and accessorized with three chic Baginc bags:

Bag of the Week

Our pick for bag of the week is utterly delicious. We’ve fallen in love with the Kellia Snakeskin Leather Bag. The snakeskin print gives it mad texture, and the chocolate and black combo dress it up in edgy-but-earthy tones. A tie-belt cinches the top, which is accented by sleek gold hardware. We love this structured tote and all of its just-right accessories:

Though we sometimes forget how Lauren Conrad became famous in the first place, one thing’s for certain: she has great style. We combed through some of her best summer looks, and found our favorites. Conrad favors sweet, feminine looks, with a modern edge. And, she happens to be one of the few celebrities who has ever made a romper look good. Check out our tribute to Lauren Conrad’s awesome style with the set we created below, featuring a quilted bag from our collection.


We were very sad to hear that soulful singer, Amy Winehouse was found dead today at the young age of 27. Though clearly troubled, Winehouse was an immense powerhouse of talent and we mourn her loss. We honor her memory by offering videos of two wonderful performances (the latter is a video of her last time ever on stage, just three days ago).

Gossip Corner

The hottest gossip item this week is the Jlo/Marc Anthony announcement that they’re getting a divorced. The power couple surprised everyone with their decision, and the rumor-mill has been working overtime to discover the cause. A few of the top guesses: 1) It’s rumored that Marc Anthony had an affair a few years ago with a flight attendant, and that this caused a permanent riff between Jlo and Marc that even couple’s counseling could not fix. 2) Marc Anthony is rumored to be very controlling of JLo’s career. 3) Marc Anthony is rumored to be very controlling of JLo, down to what she wears.



Lindsay Lohan has pissed off the judge that assigned her probation after her brief stint in jail. In the past two months, she has only served four days of community service, and has been partying it up in her spare time. The judge made it clear this week that if she does not complete her probation that she’s going back to jail, stating further, “I’m not going to give her five extra minutes. I don’t want to hear, ‘Oh, I couldn’t do it because I was on the set of the John Gotti movie.'”



Leonardo DiCaprio and Blake Lively have been getting more serious – serious enough for DiCaprio to take his new girlfriend home to meet his mother. Unfortunately, his mother totally disapproved of Lively! His mother found Lively to be completely self-absorbed and recommended to DiCaprio that he end things with her. Will DiCaprio listen to his mom? Is it already over for the two golden children?



McSteamy has checked into rehab! Eric Dane, everyone’s favorite lecherous doctor on Grey’s Anatomy, has voluntarily admitted himself to rehab after getting addicted painkillers. His addiction wasn’t by accident. He started taking the prescribed painkillers after a serious sports injury, and after feeling like he was addicted to them, he responsibly checked into rehab. That’s a rare instance in the Hollywood underbelly of substance abuse and addiction. We wish him all the best on his road to recovery!

Worst Dressed Celebs

We like to think that if we had the kind of money and access to stylists that these celebrities have that we’d never end up on a list like this. Here’s a round-up of last week’s worst dressed celebrities. Some of them aren’t completely fugly, but they’re pretty sloppy, considering all of the great summer trends available right now that they could have opted for instead.
