Olsen twins launch lower-priced handbag line
Olsen twins debut their first collection of handbags for their line Elizabeth and James.
Just a short time ago, we were all discussing whether or not anyone in this world would actually purchase a $55,000 backpack, after Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen debuted one from their upscale fashion line, The Row.
But now, you can accessorize like an Olsen for a lot less cash. According to Women’s Wear Daily, the new collection of satchels, shoppers, messenger bags, backpacks, hobo bags, cross-body bags, clutches, pouches and wallets has been in the works for about 18 months. “We’ve always wanted to do handbags, but we really wanted to understand the market first and what was missing from the market and what’s already existing on the market,” Ashley told WWD. “We wanted these bags to be affordable.”

A couple of months ago, the twins received a lot of attention for their higher priced handbag line for The Row, featuring exotic bags that few of us could actually afford (there was even a $55,000 backpack as part of the collection), but this line for Elizabeth and James is much lower.

beauty tips and style advice
In order to cope with the intense feelings of jealousy I experienced when seeing Jennifer Garner’s flawless hairstyle last week, I decided to contact the stylist responsible for the look, Kylee Heath, and find out what exactly she did to produce these glorious results.
Apparently, every celebrity in the world decided to dye her hair over the last few days—or at least Duchess Catherine, Sienna Miller, and Pamela Anderson did.
It was the chicest family night out ever in London yesterday, as Victoria Beckham hit the red carpet, along with her ADORABLE sons, Brooklyn, little fashionisto Romeo, and Cruz, to support the premiere of the soccer football documentary Class of ’92, featuring superstar dad David. And she looked perfect as always—in Victoria Beckham, of course.
There will always be a special place in our hearts for Pez—the completely absurd and impractical oblong candy that children are somehow meant to be patient enough to dispense, one by one, from a creaky plastic spring-loaded drawer contraption—and a newly minted shoe designer Camilla Elphick, a Cordwainers College graduate, has tapped into our oral fixation.
When it comes to her latest hair change, it's pretty clear that Sienna Miller was thinking pink!
She's followed by Michael Kors and Ralph Lauren.
