We’ve seen a lot of the small crossbody trend in the mid-price bags that we feature on PurseBlog Savvy, but higher-priced designers haven’t seemed as eager to latch on to the fad. At first I was a little confused as to why, but I think it makes sense – the shape and size of those bags tend to skew younger, and younger buyers tend to both spend less money and be more open-minded to new names in the design world.

Mother’s Day is right around the corner. While you might be planning a huge gathering which includes all the mother’s in your family or you are working on finding the right card and/or gift to send to your mom. Each year, I end up doing something a little different. Years past, I’ve flown into town and surprised her and other years I’ve sent a card with a Starbucks gift card (her daily must-have).

Oh, how I wish the Salvatore Ferragamo Gathered Shoulder Bag came in a different color. I can’t do tan, it wouldn’t go with anything that I wear, but the bag itself is just SO beautiful. The gently gathered folds of soft, smooth leather look so completely touchable and drool-worthy that I may consider trying to find an outfit that this bag would go with.

Salvatore Ferragamo Risvolti Eco Metal Free ToteIt’s probably time for me to sell my SUV, because the Green movement just keeps spreading to more and more areas of our lives. And it appears that it has finally come, in a serious way, to designer handbags. Salvatore Ferragamo recently released a line of five environmentally friendly handbags, aptly tited Eco Ferragamo. My personal favorite is the Salvatore Ferragamo Risvolti Eco Tote, pictured left.

Megs with Ferragamo. Stunning couple.

Buy the Salvatore Ferragamo Convertible Satchel via Saks for $1890.

Salvatore Ferragamo Origami Tote There has only been one bag in the past few months that I completely and totally can not get off my mind. Many of you may know which bag I am referring to; the Salvatore Ferragamo Oversized Carlotta Alligator Tote. I have this small part of me, like 1/10193867th of me, that holds to the fact that this will be my wedding day gift from Vlad.

Salvatore Ferragamo Alce Calfskin Hobo

When I first laid eyes upon the Salvatore Ferragamo Alce Calfskin Hobo, all I could think was, “My God, that is lovely.” And the more I think about it, lovely is really the only way to describe it. Flowers are lovely, sundresses can be lovely, and so can soft, pretty makeup. But not everything has the potential to be lovely, and rarely do I see a handbag that could be accurately described as such.

This bag is not playing around.

The Salvatore Ferragamo Top Handle Satchel means business, and it’s not going to put up with any of your flack. It’s an office bag if I’ve ever seen one, and although it evokes thoughts of the Hermes Kelly, it’s not iconic in a way that would tell all of your coworkers exactly how much you spend on your accessories.

When I think of Ferragamo I think of the absolutely drool-worthy Salvatore Ferragamo Oversized Carlotta Alligator Tote. I dream about that bag. I yearn for that bag. I feel as if I absolutely need that bag. But there is a tiny thing called reality, that sets in and tells me, YOU ARE NUTS! The $35,000 price tag really is out of my league and if I thought buying a Birkin was nerve-wrecking, this would most likely end with my passing out.

In our past two Gossip Girl discussions, we’ve had at least one poster ask about the messenger that Dan sports in the series – it’s vintage-looking, non-bulky, and actually pretty chic (for a manbag). And truth be told, I have no idea what it is or where it came from. Even on an enormous website like Zappos that carries hundreds of brands, only a handful of results appear when looking for a brown leather messenger (and most of them are for women).
