While the military trend has mostly seemed to stick with solid colors, Be & D and some other brands are bringing in camouflage print. And to be honest, I kind of sort of totally adore it.

Camo-print has such a negative connotation to so many people, believing it is overly masculine and as far from fashion forward as possible.

One of my friends likes to say that because Marc Jacobs is so amazing, he can get away with doing ridiculous thinks like having the little Miss Marc characters – and still sell bags emblazoned with her image. I’m pretty sure this Marc by Marc Jacobs Dogs of Marc Shopper qualifies to prove that her little axiom is correct.

One of our favorite clutch designers is Lauren Merkin. Her designs are unmistakable and completely chic. The most recognizable Lauren Merkin Clutch is the Louise. Good news for all of you is that we are giving three away Lauren Merkin Louise Clutches!

I didn’t get an invitation (lost in the mail somewhere, surely) to the 2010 Emmy Awards, so I’m just going to show you a life-size picture of the Alexander McQueen Crystal-Encrusted Skull Clutch and imagine it in my hand. Because of that lost invite, I was also forced to give back my Marchesa dress and let Heidi Klum wear it, but she didn’t have the clutch to pair with it.

Fall is full of strong trends – military, leopard print, haircalf, motorcycle boots. Studs are still around, apparently. That’s kind of a lot to take in, but if your style tends to skew more traditionally feminine, there’s a trend for you too: lace.

It might be a bit early to declare box bags as a trend, but the sight of Victoria Beckham carrying one a little while back and now the appearance of fall’s Alexander Wang Tai Dopp Kit Bag make it seem as though more such bags will come out of the woodwork in the near future.

I was first going to label this a fall trend, but truth be told the bucket bag has been sought after for a couple seasons now. For fall the Bucket Bag trend does not die down and the best place to satiate your bucket bag wants and needs is ShopBop.

Now that we’re done with New Jersey, the sun seems to shine a little brighter, the air seems a bit crisper, humanity seems capable of goodness and positivity. Well, maybe not the Real Housewives of DC specifically, but, you know. Most of us.

At this point, if you don’t like leopard print, I feel kind of bad for you. It seems as though every brand under the sun, from high-end to low-end and everything in between, has released some sort of leopard bag for fall.

Mini crossbody bags have been the ish for a couple of seasons now, but not everyone can partake. Maybe you have a big wallet, a dayplanner, or just a lot of stuff to carry all at once, but for some women, fitting everything they want inside of a minibag just isn’t a reasonably possibility.
