Sac du jour

Summer time to go: Sharp orange and yellow patent clutch, $220 at Vespoe

But of course we love an oil slick-finish clutch in the lovely colours of a summer's sunset-!

Today's Sac is a patent leather envelope-style number in a gloriously fun iridescent colour that can swing with gold and silver if only given the opportunity. At $220, we see this one being a party fave year round.

Won't you give it a nice palm for it to call home? And while you're at it, check out retailer Vespoe's super cool stuff where the Sharp piece and other finery dwells. For now.

Suits a chef

Some of us are all business when it comes to cooking. Suiting aprons with collar made in Lithuania, $75

Looking the part really is half the battle.

So when Lithuanian designer Aiste Nesterovaite whipped up a few suit-inspired aprons, the gourmet chef in us couldn't help but rise to the occasion like a tray of muffins in a 350 degree oven.

Might we recommend adding a bow tie?

Aprons available at Vespoe.

Who Looked Best in the Balmain Leopard-Print Skirt?

Late last month we featured Victoria Beckham wearing a leopard printed pencil skirt as she visited her eponymous retail store in London. Just a few months ago, Kim Kardashian wore the exact same skirt to the Vogue Foundation Gala during Couture Fashion Week held at the Palais Galliera in Paris. Who do you think wore it better?

1. The reality star styled her leopard-print skirt with a green waistband, a black corded top with gold detailing, and a pair of tan Hermes sandals.

How to Copy Sarah Jessica Parker’s Chic Pleated Skirt Shopping Outfit!

Prepare to be Carrie Bradshawed, ladies, because this outfit is definitely going to make heads turn your way. Sarah Jessica Parker's idea of a shopping outfit in fetching Rome is a monochromatic black ensemble featuring a modest pleated skirt and a pair of sky-high heels!

Sarah Jessica Parker was spotted with a friend rummaging through the clothing rails at the Via Sannio flea market in Rome on October 17, 2014

The 49-year-old showed some serious knack for style in her pleated midi skirt. The box-pleated piece added just the right romantic touch to her all-black look without veering away from her conservative aesthetic. But in true Carrie Bradshaw style, the mother-of-three spiced it up with a cleavage-baring camisole and a pair of gorgeous mules.

You can totally copy this look (if you don't mind walking in tall shoes for shopping, that is)! The key there is wearing a cute midi skirt, preferably one with pleats. Grab your black camisole and layer a cardigan over it. Accessorize with a pair of black sandals, a fedora hat and statement jewelry.

Alexa Chung Stands Out with a Whimsical Chanel Milk Carton Bag

We've always loved Alexa Chung's quirky sense of fashion. This British It girl often includes quirky fashion pieces in her wardrobe and however weird they may look to others, she still pulls them off very tastefully.

At the Topshop Unique runway show for London Fashion Week, Alexa donned an adorable ensemble - a yellow turtleneck top paired with a Topshop leopard mini skirt and comfy metallic flats. While most of the ladies sitting in front row wore very serious dark-hued clothes, Alexa was such a refreshing sight with her brightly colored street-smart casual look. The mix of cute pieces made her easily standout in the crowd of snobbish black-wearing fashionistas.

To cap of her fun LFW ensemble, the socialite carried a Chanel "Milk Carton" purse from the brand's "Supermarket Collection", where whimsical pieces inspired by your typical grocery items were showcased. These limited edition purses are extremely expensive, with prices going up to $10,000! While we may never be able to afford (or actually pull off wearing) these quirky Chanel purses, we always enjoy seeing them being carried by celebs like Alexa, who seems like the perfect canvas for fun and whimsical fashion pieces.

Marc Jacobs’ Surplus Alligator Bag is $40,000, Too Much?

Having left the Louis Vuitton label to focus on his own brand, Marc Jacobs brought out all of his guns to create his Spring 2015 Collection, which was filled with military-inspired pieces with utilitarian details and edgy cuts. One of the more notable pieces from this collection is the Surplus Plus Bag done in luscious alligator skin leather.

The hobo shoulder bag is effortlessly elegant with its textured exotic leather and classic colors. This particular style will be sure to upgrade any outfit from drab to fab, but that's if you are willing to splurge on a five-figure handbag. With a price tag of $40,000, this Marc Jacobs alligator purse is surely one of the most expensive designer purses we have seen this year.

There's no question about Marc Jacobs' style prowess and ability to create wonderful pieces of clothes, handbags and shoes. To back it up, he even ensures a great runway show with each collection launch. However, this latest purse might be pushing too much. Not everyone can afford ludicrously priced purses, after all.

If you are willing to hand out your hard-earned moolah for this gorgeous bag, head over to Moda Operandi and shop their trunk show, which will be ending in a couple of days.

Kim Kardashian Flashes Cleavage in Black Dress and Givenchy Heels

Kim Kardashian is finally back in Los Angeles after making various appearances at Paris Fashion Week last month. In her first public appearance since the huge fashion event in Europe, the reality TV star attended Charlotte Tilbury's VIP Beauty Launch presented by Nordstrom at The Grove in Los Angeles on Thursday last week.

The 33-year-old socialite displayed a generous amount of cleavage in a Yulia Kondranina mid-length dress featuring an open back and wide straps across the deep-V neckline affixed to metal eyelets. Her raven locks were slicked back into a bun, highlighting her beautifully made-up bronzy face.

A pair of black heels could have perfected a sleek all-black look, but the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star completed her outfit with Givenchy "Matilda" sandals in nude. They feature metal heels that measure about 4.5 inches, open almond toes, and buckled ankle straps.

The Matilda sandals are available in white at Net-A-Porter and in black at Forward by Elyse Walker.

Also, Kim Kardashian will turn 34 next week, and she will celebrate her birthday at TAO Nightclub in Las Vegas on October 24. Check out the poster she shared on Instagram:
