Fall 2014 Shoe & Bag Trends, BELLA NYC Magazine

Fur, fringe, feathers and fun. Almost anything goes, this fall, when it comes to your shoes and handbags. I’ve rounded up my favorite finds for the first, annual Fall Accessories Guide in BELLA NYC Magazine. It was so much fun putting these pages together because it brought be back to my core zone, accessories. Some of you may not know this, but I used to be an accessories buyer and editor long before I was on TV. In fact, BagTrends.com, my very first venture after college, was a) the first online magazine devoted to contemporary designers b) a pioneer in the magazine/shopping combo website c) recognized by Women’s Wear Daily, VH1, LUCKY  and HSN as the leader in what’s hot in handbags d) first to spotlight talent like Rebecca Minkoff, Adriana Castro, MCM … I could really go and on. Signing on to be BELLA NYC‘s Accessories Editor was initially a way for me to “stay in the game” while working more from home and spending time with the babies. It’s actually refueled my passion for accessories, and got me back in contact with many old friends in the shoe/bag/jewelry world. I hope you love the spread, below. It was an absolute labor of love, completed just hours before I actually went into labor with Mr. David Isaac, on June 20th. Currently, I’m working on the March/April 2015 issue which will have the Spring Accessories Guide. Don’t forget to pick up your copy on Hudson News stands and Barnes & Noble March 1, 2015.
