It model Karlie Kloss has been strutting her stuff in the most fabulous looks on the New York Fashion Week Spring 2013 catwalks, but we're also digging her off-duty outfit as she exited the tents: a white peplum top, dark-wash skinny jeans, and black strappy sandals. On her arm she carried not one but two bags: this Michael Michael Kors tan satchel ($398) and this Feed tote ($130). Karlie's look is super chic and simple to re-create — just pair your peplum top with skinny jeans, statement shoes, and a fabulous bag. Shop similar pieces below, including Karlie's exact bag, to get her latest look.
Blake Mycoskie and Lauren Bush are teaming up for the ultimate do-good, feel-good fashion collab with a TOMS + FEED limited edition shoe collection, launching exclusively online on April 1. The shoes cost $58 and feature TOMS' signature shoe silhouette and FEED's iconic stamp and burlap fabric. “Blake and I have a great friendship and our respective organizations have a lot in common, living in the space of for-profit social businesses," said Lauren Bush. "Blake has always been an active supporter of FEED, as I am of TOMS, so we’ve talked about collaborating for a while. I'm thrilled that we were finally able to make it happen and bring more awareness to each of our causes, more credibility to socially-aware enterprises and more assistance to people globally.” Each purchase provides 12 school meals and one pair of new shoes will be given to a child in need. In fact, we can't think of a better way to support the cause — and look cute while doing so. Check out the slideshow to see the collection and make note to shop a pair at TOMS.com on April 1 before they sell out.

TOMS Shoes donates a pair of shoes to a child-in-need for every pair you purchase, Project Paz works with a supercool lineup of designers to create exclusively unique pieces to benefit great organizations around the world, and Rogan partnered up with its sister brand Loomstate to create environ-conscious surf totes.

We wholly support FEED organization's mission to feed children in need around the world. American Eagle partnered with FEED to create their FEED Guatemala bags ($39.50), where $10.50 of each bag sold goes to supplying micronutrient supplements to three Guatemalan children for a year. That these brightly woven ikat bags provide such a positive service to children, whilst filling our more mundane schlepping needs, makes them a feel-good must have.
