Some of my personal favorite handbags are ones that so accurately capture a bygone era that they could probably be passed off as really fantastic vintage finds. So much in fashion is predicated on what has been done in the past that a designer deftly recreating the mood of a time period can show a great deal of skill, if done correctly.

IT IS HERE! The annual Neiman Marcus Christmas Book has arrived. Expect the expected holiday gifts from clothing to handbags along with over the top crazy expensive gifts and gift packages. This year I am a bit disappointed with the absurd.

Finally: the Judith Leiber Sphere Clutch is a disco bag that really means it.
