I am back from hibernation! I have spent the last two months working at the Metropolitan Museum of Art while the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition was going on. It was a fantastic opportunity for me, and I feel so lucky that I got the chance to participate in such a major exhibition, but unfortunately it did not leave me with much free time. But I am back now, and in the mood for some fall shopping...
When I decided to become a vegan, I figured I would not have to worry about saving up for a statement bag anymore... Boy, was I wrong! I discovered Raven by Raven Kauffman through mentions in both Elle and Lucky Magazines. When I went to the website, I was in love. The craftsmanship is so impeccable it is difficult to believe they are made from rubber, not animal skins (warning: not all of Raven's products are vegan... but there is plenty of cruelty-free eye candy to ogle). The product styling has truly stolen my heart. Each piece is presented in a classic vignette with just a hint of edge that I find completely intoxicating.

It is probably a good thing that the online store at Raven Kauffman is available yet, but the Maxine bag is for sale at Saks Fifth Avenue's website.
So good to be back!
