The term “trendy classic” may seem like an oxymoron, but investment pieces worthy of this designation truly do exist – and one of its main purveyors is Bottega Veneta. The Intrecciato weave is a timeless signature for the Italian house, and in miniaturized, bright blue crossbody form, it also somehow manages to be completely of the times. To really play up the trendiness, style it with a contrasting shoe like Saint Laurent’s violet Candy platform.

Today officially marks the first day of the Year of the Monkey! My son was born in the Year of the Golden Monkey, so I’m naturally biased towards this sign. Monkeys are most creative and intelligent, and they’re also known for being playful, enthusiastic, and highly social. This is the Year of the Red Fire Monkey, and it’s being said anything can happen in 2016, particularly when it comes to personal endeavors. Might I suggest acquiring a new bag as your first personal endeavor of the new year?
