The Real Housewife of NYC was so ahead of the FEED bag phenomenon.

So, I'm riding the bus uptown yesterday (it's WAY too hot for subways!), and I see a woman rocking a beaded FEED bag purse, and my mind immediately goes to this:

Another woman on the bus asked where to purchase the purse, to which the first woman responded that they're everywhere! Could it be? Is there a FEED bag phenomenon going on? Then, I remembered that even Rachel Zoe is in on it! In Monday's edition of The Zoe Report, Rachel touted this tote: http://www.rachelzoe.com/feed-bag. Not only is it functional and fashionable, but it's for a good cause!

So, all I'm saying is that Alex McCord is a trendsetter in my eyes, and although this jury is still out on whether or not the look was appropriate for the opera, it might just be time for her to whip that dress out again!

Editor's Note: Thank you all for reminding me that Simon actually won the corset for Alex at an auction. Kudos, Simon! Unfortunately, we don't have a pic of him wearing it!
