We’re prepping for our next “Hunt” article: this time, we’re tackling briefcases/attaches/totes for businesswomen. Sure, the USB drive is all you need most days, but what do you carry when you’re going to a big meeting or to court and need to carry some serious documents (and look serious doing it)? Suggestions welcome — please … Read More about Call for Comments! What’s your go-to “briefcase”?
Damn you, Bunnyshop, for tipping us off to such a great sale. But lots of great pieces here for the office also. We’re too tired to figure out how to make the pictures look the way we want them to (booo) but here’s a hint of what’s to come: Tory Burch Eugina Rope Dress, marked … Read More about OK, some seriously cute stuff on sale at Net-a-Porter
