I had a checkered past in the ‘90s, so I’m gleefully relishing its trendy splash into the Spring season. I sent out an SOS ASAP to Bergdorf Goodman the minute I saw this Dries Van Noten clutch on Style.com. The pattern is completely hypnotizing. Stare at it too long and you’ll be like me – desperate to have it! This bag has both of my favorite fixations, clutches and graphic black/white checks. Seriously, even my bathroom marble tiles are checkered monochrome. This is not a new obsession and it will never get old, so I have to get this bag! It will ship to Bergdorf’s between February and March, so e-mail Nicholas Collins right now to get on the Bag Snob priority list! Pre-order at Bergdorf Goodman for $1,120.
