Snob Essentials Jewel Box ($78)
Don’t be fooled by the miniature size, this box clutch can hold all of your evening essentials—yes, even your iPhone or Blackberry, too! (Also available in Black Lizard Embossed, Turquoise, Green, Pink Croco Embossed, and Splatter Paint)
Snob Essentials Treasure Satchel ($98)
Faux croc-embossed detailing lends a luxe look to this ladylike satchel. (Also available in Black Lizard Embossed, Grey Croco Embossed, and Red Lizard Embossed)
Snob Essentials Pebbled Backpack with Drawstring ($98)
A backpack this cool (and affordable) is too good to pass up. (Also available in Black, Grey Croco-Embossed, Red, and Turquoise)
Snob Essentials Embroidered Clutch ($78)
We love the way this turquoise embroidered clutch pops against a sleek LBD.
“Our Jewel Box bag is a favourite among celebrities. It's inspired by vintage cigarette and jewel cases from the 1920s. You can fit both an iPhone and Blackberry in it, along with a credit card and lip gloss. What else does a girl need for a day or night out? I do not wear flats, but I'm obsessed with the red crochet trainers my friend Chiara Ferragni designed! There's a hidden platform so you get an extra inch.”
“I went tone-on-tone with this sick 1950s vintage dress from Vintage Martini for a cocktail party last week. The turquoise embroidered clutch with gem hardware modernised the whole look.”

“There is a lot going on here: florals, midriff, A-line skirt, and bright colours. Combining multiple trends in a single look can be tricky, so I kept the accessories to a minimum. Our Treasure bag in classic black with lizard pocket provides a sophisticated polish and pulls the look together.”
“I love mixing prints, so clashing camouflage with paint splatter made for a great urban look!”
On Craig: Snob Essentials Pebbled Backpack with Drawstring ($98); Linda Farrow sunglasses; Zara pants.
“I couldn't decide which bag to use with this look, so I got a few different options! I love high-low fashion, so why not wear H&M with Balenciaga? It's way more fun and interesting to mix things up than to wear one designer from head to toe."
On Craig: Snob Essentials Embroidered Clutch ($78); Isabel Marant pour H&M top; Balenciaga pants; Stella McCartney shoes.
