Amsterdam is an enchanting city that's worth an extended visit of its own this winter, especially if you were 18 and living out of a backpack on your last trip. The recently re-opened Pulitzer hotel is where you'll want to stay, which consists of an intricate maze of 25 connecting Golden Age canal houses with secret gardens, a restaurant, café, bar and event spaces.  Pro tip: book one of the spacious Canal View Rooms; one of our favorite bedrooms in the entire city. Dig in and book on our partner site below.

Accessories like bags should–and can be–forever. Which is exactly why Burberry's latest release straight off the September runway, The Bridle Bag, is catching the world's gaze and holding it steady. The signature Burberry stamp is engraved on the front flap, and when it comes to serious classic cache, nothing conquers quite like the royal attitude of England. It's an equestrian-inspired satchel made in Italy out of 100% calf leather that deftly fuses the horse-back-riding past with the self-driving-cars of today (or, well, a few years from now...). What really stands out about this piece is the contrast of the smooth brass bridle against the grainy leather reminiscent of traditional British saddlery. Add to that a practical, compact design with perfectly intricate details and an adjustable strap, which gives you cross-body and shoulder-slinging options, and you have the satchel of a lifetime.

"Welcome to Los Angeles”? Thanks, but no, thanks—I’m from New York. I don’t need to engage in cordial small talk with strangers. In New York, we greet newcomers by giving them incorrect directions to Times Square and criticizing the way they spread their cream cheese. Already ripe avocados? Get out of here with that nonsense, Ralphs. I’m from New York, where, in lieu of avocados, grocery stores put out six hundred petrified dragon eggs and shoppers must squeeze every last one of them before buying the softest but still rock-hard option, and then bring it home and watch it go from unripe to completely rotten without ever once being edible. That’s how New Yorkers do avocados."
