There are It bags that are a flash in the pan – they’re in for 6 months and everyone’s got one, and just as suddenly, they are gone. Then there are It bags that are so durable and classic that they withstand the test of time, becoming a standard part of the rotation in any well-rounded wardrobe. Chanel’s Caviar bag and the Louis Vuitton Keepall are prototypically classic bags. One bag that has stayed on the scene since its debut in 2005 is the Marc Jacobs Stam bag. Its pleasant, pouchy shape, quilted texture, gold kiss closure, and heavy chain strap create the equation for the perfect bag. With a vintage look that’s been updated to modern handbag standards, it manages to evoke the feel of being both timelessly chic and of-the-moment trendy. This is one bag that’s never going to go out of style.

Hoards of celebrities carry this bag, and pair with everything from evening gowns to work out clothes:


Rihanna


Hillary Duff


Nicky Hilton

Britney Spears


Ashley Tisdale


Jennifer Lopez

The Marc Jacobs Stam bag typically retails for over $1,000. If you want to copy this effortlessly cool style without doling out several paychecks worth of hard-earned money, opt for our version of the Stam bag: Doctor Zhivago Quilted Bag. It only costs $33.50 and comes in three gorgeous colors.

With so many bags to choose from on our site, it’s hard to know which one to pick. Each week we will spotlight a different bestselling bag to tell you about it’s attributes. This week we picked the B. Knowles Studded Luxurious Cowhide Leather Bag:

We picked this bag because it’s simple structure and quality leather make it a stand-out among other bags.

It’s perfect for a night on the town with the girls, on date night, at a fancy, formal event, and even at the office.

Celebrities love their platform pumps. Platform pumps add height and sex appeal to even the dullest outfit, and they are a delightful throwback to the pin-up glamour girl days of yore.

Platform pumps have typical pump construction with an inner platform that add lift to the heel – which translates to added height for the wearer. The inner platform also adds an extra measure of comfort to the bed of the shoe, making platform pumps more comfortable than regular pumps.

Our favorite celebrity platform pump styles are:


Eva Longoria


Hayden Panettiere


Paris Hilton


Sarah Jessica Parker


Rosario Dawson

We stock a fabulous array of platform pumps in our store. Here are some of the more popular styles:

With animal prints on the prowl this season, and neutral shades taking center stage, it’s a good idea to compliment these styles with pops of color.
