Our pick for Bag of the Week this week is the IT Vintage Leather bag It is made of a buttery soft, high quality leather, and comes equipped with soft burnished gold hardware. Little zips, a faux flap closure, and the ability to carry this as either a shoulder bag or handbag give this purse a little something extra. This is a sexy, yet functional bag, than can be worn a variety of ways.
Here are three ways to wear this versatile bag:

There’s been a recent spate of firings in Hollywood. According to water cooler gossip, Lindsay Lohan was fired from her role as Linda Lovelace on Inferno. Taylor Momsen was let go from Gossip Girl. Jessica Alba has considered quitting the acting business altogether.
What’s caused this undercurrent of dissatisfaction among the Hollywood elite? With a combination of unavailability of good roles for women, the paparazzi pressure, the ever-increasing public attention paid to their personal lives, and ridiculous tactics they must use to stay relevant, it’s no wonder that young women in Hollywood are struggling right now. Negative press, while still press, is damaging reputations to the point where actors like Lohan and Momsen can’t hold down their paying jobs. Bad directing and scripts that aim to gloss up and CGI the actors to death have people like Alba just plain fed up.
Celebrities live their lives like zoo animals, or goldfish in a small glass bowl. Their every move is watched, recorded, compared, and broadcast. This trend of firing and quitting may continue, as actors who can’t hack it are replaced with those who can. Since we admire the style of three aforementioned celebrities, we hope they stick around for us to draw inspiration from.
We don’t know what to think about Ke$ha. Her look is altogether unpleasant, but her music is unfortunately catchy. But what is the reason for her popularity? Even her fans agree that she looks dirty and unbathed, but that’s the look she’s going for!
To remain relevant on the pop music scene nowadays, you will always find yourself in competition with Lady Gaga. Gaga is the indisputable reigning Queen of Pop. Her music, her politics, her style, and her performances are in a leage of their own. Anyone who tries to outdress Gaga will find themselves outdone at every turn. Is Ke$ha trying to dethrone Gaga? If so, she’s already failing to do so. Ke$ha, who prides herself on her “garbage chic” appearance, is hardly unique. She’s a throwback to Coutney Love’s grungier days, but her looks comes off as desperate theatrics in the wake of Gaga’s artistically inspired ensembles.
So, what do you think? Is Ke$ha unique? Is she garbage chic or just plain trashy? You decide! Leave a comment and let us know what you think.
You may have noticed an unusual accessory cropping up in fashion pictures across the land: the fox tail keychain. We love foxes, but are sad to think of their tails being lopped off for a fashion trend. That’s why our new Designer Inspired Tote has a faux fox fur keychain.
We’ll keep you trendy, and your ethics can remain intact. As such, this gorgeous designer inspired bag accessorized with the season’s hottest trend is our pick for Bag of the Week.
In the world of easy, expendable fashion, it’s not uncommon to find yourself in the same room as someone who is wearing the same top, or pair of jeans, or carrying the same handbag. Your friend might show up in her new cardigan, only to have you exclaim, “I just ordered that same cardigan from Urban Outfitters.” Unless you wear head-to-toe vintage clothes, it’s hard to be entirely unique anymore. Celebrities run into this problem often, and since what they wear is SO public, they often get placed on “Who Wore it Best” lists. Pitting one celebrity’s style against another’s is often entertaining. Where most of them go wrong is wearing the same thing, down to the accessories and hair.
Kelly Osbourne vs. Georgina Chapman
Identical makeup, hairstyles, and belts make this look way too matchy-matchy.
Kim Kardashian vs. Ciara
They accessorized the same down to the leopard print booties.
It is impossible for celebrities to be prescient enough to know who will wear the same outfit as them at a premiere, or at another even across the globe. So, it’s understandable that not only do they find themselves in matching gowns, but in similar shoes, jewelry and hairstyles as well. We’re not suggesting they fire their homogenizing stylist, but what could help them here is to make the style more their own. Celebrities who end up wearing the same things, but adding their own flair to it, don’t fall prey to the “Who Wore It Better” dissect-a-thon.
Here are three examples of when celebrities wore the same thing, but made it their own by accessorizing differently:
Kim Kardashian vs. Whitney Port
Same jacket, worn two completely different ways.
Kate Bosworth vs. Rihanna
Same slouchy cardigan that fits two different casual aesthetics.
Thandie Newton vs. Jennifer Garner
Both dressy looks wearing the same top, but their individual style shines through.
While we love copying celeb looks, we don’t copy them exactly. We get the feel for their style and try to incorporate similar pieces. However, we always keep in mind that individual style trumps celebrity style. Learn to make your look your own with fabulous, curious, unique accessories.
In just two years, Taylor Momsen has gone from squeaky clean teen to full on modern goth.

Since her onscreen debut as Jenny Humphreys in the popular show, Gossip Girl, she has slowly transformed her personal appearance to one of angsty black eyeliner, blood red lips and slashed up tanks. Her perky blonde haircut is now lank and long. Even though her appearance is dramatic and showy, we love her pouty, “stop looking at me” attitude. It’s so….1990. If you want to get “retro” like Taylor, we put together two looks to help you cop her style. Bags pictured provided by Bag Inc (of course!).
