The Bucket Bag_blog

The Bucket Bag is back — and in a big way!

Spotted all over the fashion week runways, this slouchy handbag was a favorite for many designers. Moschino, Rebecca Minkoff, IMAXtree and Louis Vuitton all sent their models down the catwalk clutching different versions of the classic bag. Updated with bold graphics, studs, chains or patterns we saw the Bucket Bag in a new light. And we loved it.

And it’s not just us. Young Hollywood starlets like Miranda Kerr, Nicky Hilton and Vanessa Hudgens were seen out and about carrying their favorite take on this design!

So whatever your style, get carried away by the versatile yet polished Bucket Bag.

BTR V-Day Hollywood Crushes

BTR Celebrity Crushes

We’ve all done it. You know – spend an hour or so daydreaming about that silver screen cutie that simply makes our heart skip a beat. After all, what’s life without a little fantasizing every once in a while?

Today, we’re asking our employees to reveal their Hollywood crushes? Check out our top 10 list below.

The Boys Club

1)      Ryan Gosling: Charmingly Canadian and ab-solutely swoon-worthy, this home-grown heartthrob plays the good boy as well as the bad-ass. Who doesn’t love a good study in contrast?

2)      Joseph Gordon Levitt: Often described as Mr. Perfect, we’re more than ready to set up house with Mr. Levitt.  But where will we live? How about right here on the 3rd Rock from the Sun 😉

3)      Ian Somerhalder: Nicknamed Smolder Holder by his fans, we can hardly get enough of this bad boy. And those eyes….

4)      Sean Penn: This big screen rebel is known for stealing hearts. It’s no wonder he’s got ours.

5)      Henry Cavill: It’s said that the Man of Steel has a soft side. Well, we’re good listeners. He can open up to us.

The Ladies’ Club

1)      Scarlett Johansson: With a name like Scarlett and looks to match, this Hollywood babe is so red-hot.

2)      Blake Lively: Mrs. Ryan Reynolds got an undisputed aye from girls and boys alike. Yep, we definitely love this radiant blond.

3)      Sofia Vergara: Even her name is sexy. Add a sultry accent and we had to open a few windows and turn down the heat.

4)      Halle Barry: Her beauty seems to transcend time. Old and young alike still find her absolutely stunning and can hardly get enough of this Bond Girl.

5)      Eva Mendes: We have a love/hate relationship with Eva. Love her gorgeous curves and kiss-me lips. Hate her because she has our ultimate valentine date; Ryan Gosling.

We’re dying to know. Who’s your Hollywood crush? We can keep a secret.

The Best and Worst Dressed of the 2014 Golden Globes

Hollywood’s best and brightest were on display for the 2014 Golden Globes. And by bright, we mean it! The red carpet revealed glitzy metallic gowns, as well as bright, solid colors perfect for the coming spring. However, as always, some of these stars dazzled, while others may soon be firing their stylist.

Here are our picks for the best and worst dressed of the 2014 Golden Globes:

Best Dressed:

Lupita Nyong’o: Her movie, 12 Years a Slave, nabbed the Golden Globe for Best Dramatic Film, but she won the award for best dressed even before the show started. The bold color looks great on her, and the cape feature adds trendsetting style.

Kerry Washington: That baby bump looks great in Balenciaga. The top portion of the dress cuts a flattering figure, and elevates the entire ensemble into one of fashionable elegance.

Margot Robbie: The Wolf of Wall Street femme fatale blew us away in Gucci. She looked flawless from head to toe; the dress creating a classic silhouette enhanced by emerald-colored gems.

Kate Beckinsale: This is how you wear metallic colors! Kate looked every inch a star in this glittery Zuhair Murad gown. The sweetheart neckline is perfect on her frame, and the pattern is eye-catching, even through all the shine.

Reese Witherspoon: The Calvin Klein dress, though simple, fits Reese’s stunning hourglass shape like a glove. The bright color is youthful and on-trend this season.

Honorable Mention:

Emilia Clarke: She shined bright in a Proenza Schouler gown. Both the print and the asymmetrical skirt were fabulous.

Worst Dressed:

Drew Barrymore: She should have taken a cue from Kerry Washington and flaunted that baby bump in style. Instead, this Monique Lhuiller gown reminds us of our grandmother’s wallpaper.

Julia Roberts: When did Julia Roberts decide to change career paths and become an English school mistress? Her biggest mistake here is the blouse portion of the dress. Without it, the dress would have looked plain, but elegant.

Zoe Saldana: This dress looks like it was sewn together with the castoff scraps of other gowns, and not pretty ones either. It’s just all over the place, and the flower appliques definitely do not help!

Julie Bowen: We had to recoil at this dress at first glance because the combination of purple and red was harsh on our eyes. It gets worse the more you look at it: the velvet and sateen combo, the puffy sleeves…take your pick!

Lizzy Caplan: If she wanted to go for a fashion-forward look, she fell short. The almost futuristic shoulders and sleeves just end up making this dress look strange and unflattering.

Honorable Mention:

Paula Patton: The ruffles looked as though they could topple her over. Her figure looked swamped and lost within the fabric waves.
