HAVE A GOLDEN 2017

Tuesday 01.03.17

We've said it before and we'll say it again - we love New Year's Eve. There's no better time to sparkle your heart out than when you're ringing in the new year! Now that it's officially 2017, we would like to wish you the happiest year ahead, chock full of festive reasons to pull out your sparkliest bag and shine your brightest. Create your own special occasions. Live a little louder and give a little more of yourself each day. What are your resolutions? My first resolution is to ditch my boring makeup routine and match my eyes to my Whiting & Davis bag with this golden eye makeup look. Cheers!

When They Go Low, We Go High (Fashion)

Thursday 11.17.16

As if we needed any more reasons to love Michelle Obama, the ultra classy First Lady wore head-to-toe metal mesh at the Obama administration's 13th and final state dinner. Swoon! In reference to the evening’s guests of honor, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and his wife Agnese Landini, the First Lady stunned in a glamorous floor-length rose gold metal mesh gown from everyone's favorite Italian fashion house, Atelier Versace. Cloaked in our sparkling signature material, FLOTUS looked absolutely breathtaking and I can't imagine a better model for it than the true role model that is Mrs. Obama.

INTRODUCING THE HERITAGE COLLECTION

Saturday 07.16.16

Whiting & Davis is the oldest handbag company in the U.S., and 2016 marks 140 years in business! To celebrate, we have designed a very special Heritage Collection of limited edition handbags for Fall 2016 that we are very excited to share with you. Based on some of our favorite vintage and antique Whiting & Davis designs from decades past, the Heritage Collection is comprised of five elegant yet contemporary new styles: the new VICTORIAN STRIPE Crossbody BagCHANDELIER Crossbody BagDECO CRYSTAL POINT Evening Bag, SKYLINE Crossbody Bag, and my personal favorite, the POIRET POUCH.

To celebrate our 140th Anniversary and the launch of this exciting new limited edition collection, we recently hosted a retrospective exhibit at Lady Mendl's Tea Salon in NYC, where editors, bloggers and friends gathered to admire dozens of our most iconic antique and vintage designs alongside the new Heritage Collection handbags they inspired. It was a thrill to host such a fun, fashionable event, and to demonstrate the ways we have evolved these classic styles for today's contemporary taste and lifestyle (for starters, they all fit the iPhone 6 Plus!). We're so excited to celebrate this huge milestone and hope you enjoy the new collection. Cheers!

SHINE BRIGHT LIKE A DIAMOND

Wednesday 06.08.16

While scrolling through Who What Wear for the latest fashion news and outfit inspiration, we stumbled upon a guide for how to get Rihanna's style and naturally had to click. Now, imagine our thrill upon discovering our Chain Fringe bag right there in the mix! The honor is immense. I mean, it's RIHANNA, goddess of street style (and always with a touch of gold, of course). Not to mention her killer new album and all the old faves. She's definitely our kind of icon. Thanks, Who What Wear!

DON'T KEEP THE BOUNCER WAITING

Wednesday 05.11.16

Introducing our new Card Holder for Spring Summer 2016! This slim little wallet is just big enough for a few cards and some cash, and is perfect for slipping inside your Whiting & Davis bag for evenings out. I love having my ID and credit card handy without having to lug around a wallet. And when Friday night rolls around, keeping your night out necessities in one place is crucial. Don't keep the bouncer waiting ;)

SPRING SUMMER STYLE

Tuesday 04.12.16

At long last, spring is here and so is our Spring Summer 2016 Collection! One of my favorite new bags from the collection is our Mini Saddle Bag, an on-trend style made with bubble mesh in a variety of chic day-to-evening colors. Summer will be here before we know it (hooray!) and this one's going to be my go-to bag for everything from festivals to First Fridays (amazing local art scene in Oakland). Speaking of festivals, I'm heading to Coachella later this week with our Mini Saddle Bag along with a few other metal mesh favorites - so excited! Follow us on Instagram for festival looks from the desert.

AMBER VALLETTA GLITTERS WITH WHITING & DAVIS AT THE CHATEAU MARMONT

Friday 03.04.16

Amber Valletta carried our gold Mini Bucket Bag at the Net-a-Porter Celebrates Women Behind the Lens luncheon she hosted this past Oscars weekend at the glamorous Chateau Marmont in LA. Our gold, glittering bags are perfect for Academy Awards events, wouldn't you say? Just the thing to carry an Oscar home in (following all the after parties, of course)!

DAY TO EVENING STYLE

Tuesday 01.19.16

This mid-morning cappuccino and our Dimple Slip On Clutch - two things I am majorly feeling right now. In fact, this crossbody clutch is so chic and on-trend that it just might be my current favorite of the whole collection. I love how extremely wearable it is in black and pewter, though I also adore it in black and gold for a dressier look that feels so high end. Love it.
