Milly-Splatter-Paint-Satchel

Bag: Milly Splatter Paint Satchel

Price: $395 via Bloomingdale’s

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Novelty bags are a huge trend right now, but unfortunately, almost all of the really great ones are made by brands that charge four figures for everything they do.

Fendi Micro Peekaboo Satchel Bag

Bag: Fendi Micro Peekaboo Satchel Bag

Price: $1,550 via Neiman Marcus

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Just when you thought mini bags reached their peak, Fendi decided to micro size already tiny bags and I can’t get enough. Sure the bag doesn’t fit much, but many are using these micro bags as charms or evening bags.

Givenchy-Obsedia-Crossbody-Bag

Bag: Givenchy Obsedia Crossbody Bag

Price: $1,510 via MATCHESFASHION.COM

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: It wouldn’t be accurate to call anything Givenchy makes “under-exposed,” but this little bag is a totally great option that’s often overlooked in favor of bigger, bolder bags from the brand.

Diane-von-Furstenberg-Voyage-Micro-Crossbody-Bag

Bag: Diane von Furstenberg Micro Voyage Crossbody Bag

Price: $198 via MATCHESFASHION.COM

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Don’t let the “micro” fool you–this little bag is big enough for weekend essentials, and it’ll look super smart (not to mention way more expensive than it is) in almost any setting.

Marc-Jacobs-Python-and-Sequin-Trouble-Bag

Bag: Marc Jacobs Python and Sequin Trouble Bag

Price: $5,500 via Net-a-Porter

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Marc Jacobs left Louis Vuitton to focus on reviving and expanding his eponymous label, and this bag is a step in the right direction.

Gap-Python-Embossed-Leather-Tote

Bag: Gap Python-Embossed Leather Tote

Price: $120 via Gap

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Sometimes we come across great bags in unexpected places, and in this case, it’s also at a great price. Gap has been slowing expanding its leather offerings, and this versatile shape in greyscaled python is hard to pass up, especially for well under $200.

VBH-Trevi-Demi-Python-Bag

Bag: VBH Trevi Demi Python Bag

Price: $4,200 via Neiman Marcus

Why It’s the Bag of the Week:Winter is a great time of year for rich textures and colors, and rarely gets richer than deep burgundy snakeskin. The Trevi is a great bag if you want to carry something elegant but not immediately recognizable.

Bottega-Veneta-Nappa-Leather-and-Intrecciato-Tote

Bag: Bottega Veneta Nappa and Leather Intrecciato Tote

Price: $4,400 via LUISAVIAROMA

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Bottega Veneta usually sticks with the classics, but the irregular stripes and gentle shading at the edges of the flat blush panels give this functional tote a ton of texture and visual depth.

Loeffler-Randall-Mini-Floral-Rider-Bag

Bag: Loeffler Randall Floral Mini Rider Bag

Price: $425 via Bloomingdale’s

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: A bouquet of flowers will only last you a week, but a floral bag will last you seasons on end. The blue-based print of this Loeffler Randall mini is perfect; feminine and painterly but not too sweet.

Vince-Signature-Collection-Stamped-Croc-Crossbody-Bag

Bag: Vince Signature Collection Stamped Croc Crossbody Bag

Price: $645 via Vince

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Vince’s new handbag line is full of sleek, functional designs at contemporary price points. This luxe-looking crossbody is big enough to be an everyday bag, but it’s compact enough not to weigh you down.
