‘Tis the season for haute handbags -my “hands-down” most coveted of all accessories!
Any good fashionista knows you shouldn’t feel guilty indulging on a bodacious bag! After all, the better the bag – the more you may be able to carry it year-after-year.
I’ve got a few favorites of my own and did some searching for some that may catch your eye…fanciful or functional – let’s have a go at this must-have for mavens like me! I’m a “purse person” and would have bought them all, but I’ll narrow it down to a few that made the cut. Make way for haute handbags that we all need to rock!
Let’s be blunt here…..I LOVE Rebecca Minkoff for the satchel approach. Discover this Regan Nubuck satchel in a stunningly subtle deep lavender shade at Bloomingdales..great size and silhouette and complete with a hint of the fringe that is on-trend, again, for fall. You can even change up your style to suit your plans for the day as it easily morphs into a cross body when necessary!
Give the Regan micro satchel a try in this luscious Aubergine, for a slimmer profile, reach for a great handbag on the go..no muss, no fuss! And it’ll still make a fashion splash in a toned-down way.
The Goyard is my go-to tote of all-time. Personally, (get it?) I plan to order one in bright blue with yellow initials “MB” for my fall splurge. It’s available in a wide palette of color choices and will really make a strong fashion statement.
If brights aren’t your thing, try this very affordable Saint Louis mini tote in black and khaki..understated and elegant when paired with everything from casual jeans to a more elaborate outfit.
Speaking, as we were, of cross body, with the Presidential election heating up on a daily basis, Hammitt definitely has my vote with this VIP black on black with fringe. The bag has all bases covered, from comfort to convenience to practicality to luxury! Can’t wait to use mine in the coming weeks..it’s an inaugural winner without even counting the votes!
Job one…make it easy on yourself and take things down a notch or two …if you’re watching your pocketbook, take a look at these super-affordable, classy clutches! Just grab and go….in the utmost of style, of course. Macy’s is featuring a nice selection of very reasonably priced clutches for fall and winter. Nine West is offering up this classic black clutch, dressed up with a diagonal zippered outer pocket …and Calvin Klein is featuring this Saffiano leather convertible clutch with gold metal insert handle that really caught my eye. Hardware is in! Fun and different…everyone will be asking you where you got them but stay unique! Shopping for bags is such fun …invite a friend and hit the stores and keep these suggestions in mind. Let me know what gems you discover!
