Time continues to fly by, and today we welcome May to our calendars.
The saying goes, “April showers bring May flowers,” and with the start of May, we wanted to kick things off with a fun video. Starting today, we will be welcoming each new month with a fun video celebrating one of our favorite bags of the moment.

Bag: Fendi 2Jours Small Shopper Bag
Price: $1,750 via Net-A-Porter
Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Ever since Fendi released the 2Jours in a smaller size, I’ve been obsessed. The clean lines and classic design have made this bag an accessory lovers’ favorite, and with a multitude of options, there’s a version for everyone.
Our friends at MyHabit always have amazing sales, but this one really has us excited. You can shop a variety of archive Chanel Bags on MyHabit now, including a great selection of the classics. While new Chanel bags have us excited, the older pieces lure us in for their classic designs and graceful aging over time.
The iconic Louis Vuitton Lockit appeared first in 1958, and seemingly endless new renditions have followed. The latest version, seen first in the brand’s new campaign with Michelle Williams, is my favorite by far. The supple Veau Cachemire of the Louis Vuitton Soft Lockit Bag provides a stunning appearance with a distinctive, ladylike feel.
Bottega Veneta and craftsmanship go hand in hand, but most customers never get to witness the work of the brand’s meticulously trained Italian artisans. When the opportunity to watch them ply their craft presents itself, you don’t want to miss it.
J. Mendel is already a name that many fashion lovers know, but when you think J. Mendel, you probably think of the brand’s stunning gowns and impeccable furs.
I’ve been a longtime lover of J. Mendel, and when I heard that Giles Mendel decided a focus on bags to be integral to his brand’s future, I was thrilled.
