Man Bag Monday

The Best Bag Deals of March 22

Today is officially the first Friday of spring! It might not feel like we’ve moved on to a new season in much of the US, but the calendar tells me so, and I believe it. (Maybe I just believe it because it’s too depressing not to, though.) In light of that, we thought we’d stock our weekly bag deals post with some rosy options to make your day a little bit warmer.

Diane von Furstenberg Spring Bags at Saks
Diane von Furstenberg

Spring might not quite have sprung outside (at least in New York – you may be luckier than we are), but it has definitely sprung inside Saks Fifth Avenue, circa the Diane von Furstenberg handbags. DVF’s spring bags have arrived in stores and online, and with materials ranging from raffia to lizard-embossed leather, they’re just the thing to get you through the seasonal transition and onto the right track for the weather ahead.

Anna Sui TumiIn spite of the cold in the northeast, spring IS fast approaching and with it, the most wonderful time of the year – vacation season! If you read this site you already love and covet designer handbags, but what about luggage? Needless to say, high quality luggage is an investment, but you really do get what you pay for.

If you feel like I do about luggage and you have some fabulous travel ahead this spring and summer, Tumi’s Invest In Quality event is perfect for you. You’ll save 20% sitewide with the code 2013SPRING through March 24th.

Our recommendation? Anna Sui’s fabulous collection of luggage for Tumi will stand out on the luggage carousel and it’s so durable!
