Alice. D of Milano: Create Your Bag and Give Back 5% to Charity

Mother daughter team of Donatella and Alice make up the delightful Italian brand ALICE * D based in Milan. Italian craftsmanship in fine leathers and vegan options are created with a simple and impactful use of color blocking . The design is a classic tote bag shape in a variety of sizes from the MINI to the MAXI. The bags can also come with shoulder straps. Inside an unlined hand stitched construction is a zipper pocket for security or your phone. What we love about these bags is their practicality combined with a chic simplicity and lush materials like butter soft Italian leathers in a variety of colors that reflect the season. Winter Collections featured a cozy lamb fur mixed with leather to make its statement. Vegan options are made of clear acrylics with colors or even straw for the spring season. This combination can also be mixed with leather. A heavy linen fabric (pictured) mixed with leather is another favorite. You can put a laptop in the medium size, use the larger size for an airline carry on or evening event with the mini size bag with shoulder straps. Amusing combinations and leathers like leopard or snake are also added into the mix just for fun.

Black is the New Red: Red Carpet Looks for 2018

What we know for sure:  Black Tie or formal gowns will never be the same again.  The ladies of the Golden Globes showed us that the meaning of solidarity is both as a fashion statement and a statement of support.  The actress who did not show up in a black or black inspired gown at the Golden Globes, didn’t get the memo.  In case you missed it, the wearing of black at the Golden Globes launched the “Times Up” movement for the men in  Hollywood and in fact, the world (timesupnow.com) and as we head into the awards season the movement will continue in one fashion statement or another.  Think of this as another version of the “Pussy Hat”.  Here are some of our of our favorite looks from the Golden Globes. Emphasis on the big gown, cultural, elegant and almost death-defying with the accompanying jewels is what we all look forward too.  Even Pants made their way onto the carpet, and well, we couldn’t be more pleased.
