Fashion Bloggers Oversized Glasses

If there's one accessory that seems to withstand the test of time, it's the satchel. This crossbody bag (which, fun fact, was the precursor to the backpack!) was originally created to carry tons of books, but today we love it for it's classic, English schoolboy charm and roomy interior. Also, not to brag, but this bag is famous enough to have it's own Wikipedia page, so it has definitely secured its place in the fashion world. But, as always, we love to see our favorite pieces in action, so we scoured the internetz for our favorite satchel-inspired looks, and we think you'll love 'em!

After almost a YEAR of built-up anticipation via paparazzi shots and Instagram snaps, we're finally getting to see some footage from Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers. We've pulled ourselves out of the *deeeeep inhale and then monstrous yawn* daybreak hours, the legendary director is finally letting us see the trailer. As we imagined from the teaser photos of the girls getting arrested and wielding guns and ski masks, the movie's PYT stars Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, Vanessa Hudgens, and Rachel Korine unfurl before your eyes into gritty, grimey characters like you've never seen them before.

Riff Raff-channeling James Franco makes his grand entrance just before the minute mark and Gucci Mane follows soon after. While we still have yet to see how rumored co-star Heather Morris will play out in this story, the trailer is simultaneously tiding us over and amping up our excitement for the movie's official release. Mark your calendars, y'all: Spring Breakers opens March 22 in New York and Los Angeles and nationwide on March 29.

On the inescapable (for us, anyway) style side of things, the trailer is also helping us beat the winter blahs with its Spring Break wardrobe realness. We all agreed that shopping for swimsuits in January was pushing the calendar a little bit, but we did track down some of the movie's style essentials so you can cop the Spring Breakers look now. You're welcome!

John Mayer Wallets

Hello world! Remember John Mayer? You know, the dude that sang "Your Body Is A Wonderland" but had to call off his career "indefinitely" last March because of a serious throat condition? Yeah, that guy. I know it's a super sadface sitch, but, hey, he's dealing the best way he knows how—by dating Katy Perry (babe alert!) and becoming an accessories designer—the latter of which only I found out about mere hours ago. Apparently, he teamed up with Barrett Alley to create a collection of limited-edition wallets, and from what I can tell so far, he's taking this whole design thing really, really seriously. Like, first off, each wallet is $190. To put that in perspective, you could get four—read that again—four Rebecca Minkoff leather wallets for the price of just one John Mayer concoction. So, what's this bad boy made of? Snakeskin? Diamonds? Solid gold? Nope! It's made of old timey fabric from the late 1800s and Civil War-era buttons. Mmmmm, mothballs.

Leather Snapback

Y'all already know how much we love snapbacks, but we can't stop spotting a new version of our ol' go-to accessory—the leather snapback. Not only is this cap an amazing homage to late '80s/early '90s fashion (um, haiii Janet Jackson in Rhythm Nation), but it's also totally warm (and practical!) option for those blustery winter days. Now if you're thinking, "Wha? Are you telling me a leather baseball cap is back in style?" The answer, friends, is yes. And we have proof! Rihanna, Kat Graham, Ciara and Brandy all sported leather caps within the past year and looked TOTALLY. KILLER. while doing so. Ri sizzled in a snapback with a snake on it (!!!) while performing in London last summer; Kat went grunge in a Nirvana tee and patent leather Alife cap last spring; Ciara stole the spotlight in a leather cap onstage in December; and Brandy oozed casual-cool style while spotted in the street in October.

Justin Timberlake's return to music, after around six years without putting out a solo album, has been one of the biggest, most exciting bits of news so far this week, this month, and yea, this year (it's only January, so we can say that). From the glorious moment we saw JT tweet out his "I'm Ready" video announcement, we've been fantasizing about what this new record might sound like and (of equal import to us) whether his touring and promotional steez for the new music would be more akin to FutureSex/LoveSounds or his *NSync glory days (given the '90s revival that's sweeping the fashion world). The Clinton era and the early aughts that followed were both questionable times in style history, and while we're trying to stay positive and trust that Timberlake is bringing sexy back, the following 22 accessories ain't justified, and we'd prefer they stay in the past.

Alright, girl! We see you doing work. *high fives the computer monitor*

AnnaSophia Robb, Carrie Diaries

Alright, so we're just gonna come out and say it: we have sneaking suspicion that The Carrie Diaries just MIGHT be our new favorite show. No, we haven't seen it yet. And no, we don't have a crystal ball to see into the future. But judging from the on-set pics (and mini Carrie Bradshaw AnnaSophia Robb's rising star status), we're placing our bets early. While the premiere might still be a few days away, we've found something to tide you over until the show's Monday night debut: this fun new Facebook app. Created by CW masterminds and guaranteed to make our wait for The Carrie Diaries THAT much easier, the app lets you customize a basic black carryall into a Bradshaw masterpiece- well virtually, anyway- using nail polish as paint. Because that's TOTALLY something the '80s fashionista would actually do.

Would you wear eyelash jewelry?

You guys know about false eyelashes. Sets of fluttering faux hairs that you can glue to your lids to amplify your peepers. Celebs wear them up and down red carpets for glamorous doe eyes or even just to spice up a formerly staid beauty look. They come in basic black or sometimes other colors or even with embellishments. But have you ever heard of eyelash jewelry? We hadn't until our friends at Incredible Things enlightened us to this Eyelash Jewelry Etsy shop which is chock FULL of the ocular ornaments, and honestly, we're not sure what to do with that information now.

Nicki Minaj Adam Levine Clothing Line

We can't say we were surprised when we heard that Nicki Minaj and Adam Levine would be launching their own clothing and accessories lines at Kmart and Shop Your Way in 2013. The two musicians-turned-reality-show-judges will "design and develop their collections with Kmart to reflect their strong creative talents, expressive personalities, and distinctive individual styles," according to the press release. I mean, Nicki has been very openly shopping around her potential clothing line since last August, and even back then said, "My biggest goal was to make a line that was going to be affordable to my fans and also rich enough in quality that they'll feel like they're wearing exactly what I'm wearing." And for Adam, well, remember he launched a clothing collection (called 222) back in 2010, and since then has been flirting in and out of fashion world by performing at the Victoria's Secret runway show and releasing his first-ever fragrance? Yep, we've been keeping our eyes on y'all!

CUTE OVERLOAD ALERT. Remember when we called out Dakota Fanning as one of the biggest cat ladies of 2012? Judging from her little sis Elle, turns out the feline friendly fashion gene runs in the family! The twosome arrived in Seoul, South Korea this weekend and hit the ground running wearing- get this- matching kitten ear hats. (As if we weren't obsessed with the Fannings enough already...). Dakota went for total Hello Kitty adorableness with her white beanie, and Elle sported a fuzzy pale pink version as they traipsed through the streets on vacation. Aw, you guys...

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
