I always talk about how a great zip wallet could function perfectly well as a clutch, but it’s rare that a clutch functions as a wallet. In the case of this See by Chloe Chantilly Leather Tassel Zip Wallet, I was completely mistaken and thought I was looking at a clutch before I read the name of the wallet.

Like most of the recent See by Chloe creations, the leather looks lusciously soft (and rather curiously padded, but let’s not dwell on that).

I understand that I may be alone on this one, but it’s a risk I’m willing to take. Unlike, well, a lot of people, I love the strange mountainous bohemian style that JADEtribe propones. It just has so many things that I like very much, not to mention that it is eco-friendly. Allow me to remind you that there was an um, GIGANTIC oil spill recently, so we should care about our planet.

There are two things that this bag reminds me of. First, it reminds me of that giant metallic silver Louis Vuitton Alma that Kim Kardashian wore to the beach awhile back. Yes, really. That’s the first thing that came to mind. Don’t judge, we’re bag people here! The second thing that this resembles is an incredibly useful L.L.Bean wash bag that my dear old dad uses, without fail, for every vacation to pack his toiletry essentials.

If there’s something I’m a fan of, it’s oversized clutches. I don’t own one, but I still appreciate them, and this Rebecca Minkoff Eyelet Clutch certainly personifies the unique qualities that I’d look for in a big clutch.

Signature Rebecca Minkoff hardware? Check. Detachable chain strap? Check. And finally, it has cute little metal feet. I’m a sucker for those. The soft peach color provides a nice contrast to the silver hardware, making the combination the perfect marriage of girly and slightly rocker.

When it comes to happy, summery bags, I immediately think of Kate Spade. Growing up in the South in a city where Lilly Pulitzer abounds, the Kate Spade brights would always come out when the weather warmed up. Without fail, something like this Kate Spade Jane Street Neda Calfskin Wallet would be paired with a bright little cardi and a Pulitzer dress.

It’s here! A few months ago, we covered the impending arrival of this Marc by Marc Jacobs Happy Dot Mabel Tote to Shopbop. Lo and behold, it’s here, and right in time for summer.

As expected, the price is rather reasonable, at $228. It’s a rather large bag, though. Would you carry it? It’s very on-trend with it’s mixed prints, but I find the choice of prints to be rather matronly””giant dots and gingham.

It’s not even funny how much I’ve lusted after this Botkier Dion Satchel, but in the chamois, light nude color. In person, the lambskin is super soft and thin but strong. The ruching goes perfectly with the leather belting in the center. The two little buckles work so well with the whole design of the bag, and are similar (but not the same) as the buckles that attach to the convertible strap.

What better way to unwind after a long day of final exams than to go shopping? I know. It’s hard to beat. I headed downtown to the Botkier Sample Sale to celebrate another year of college successfully finished. I had strict orders from my mother for what she wanted, and I also planned to get something for my grandmother, who’s currently visiting from Mexico.

My days of being slightly frightened by Mr and Miss Marc are over, completely done with. In fact, I can barely remember why I was so creeped out in the first place! Oh, right- because they are kind of creepy. However, they’re extremely cool in an odd Tim Burton sort of way. But I’m over the creepiness.

As PurseBlog’s resident proponent of the bohemian style, I feel it’s my duty to introduce yet another Antik Batik style to you readers. This Antik Batik Ciena Big Bag is quintessentially boho, but manages to be rather un-messy and simple as far as the style goes. That’s quite a feat, no? Let’s take a look.

The bag is an easy messenger shape, if slightly rounded and loose.
