This post is at the request of my husband Neal. He thought it might be cool to feature some great men’s bags. He has a lot to say about men’s bags so I kind of interviewed him for this post.
me: ”What do you look for in a bag?”
him: “I like bags with detail but with no identifiable logos. Shouldn’t be flashy but good design a must. Functionality is foremost, and it should be comfortable to carry.”
me: “What do you hate most about men’s bags?”
him: “Men should NOT carry purses period.”
me: “What do you consider a purse?”
him: “A f**king woman’s hand bag!”
me: “Ok what are you talking about?”
him: “When did men start carrying TOTES! For the beach fine, for the groceries fine, but other than that it’s unacceptable.”
me: “Ok, I got it. No “murses”…
Here are some Neal approved bags, we hope you like them:

I have decided to do a series of posts inspired by the style of various female musicians. First up: Patti Smith, singer-songwriter, poet and visual artist. Her look is iconic and damn if she doesn’t always look so effortlessly cool. Right now she has a gallery show in Chelsea with photographer and filmmaker Steven Sebring. You can read all about it here.
Here she is at the opening with Ryan McGinley and Michael Stipe:
And here is my outfit inspired by her. Girly girls feel free to replace the boot with a high heel bootie:
