I still recall the day where spending over $1000 for a designer handbag was the norm but still seen as steep. I wish that day were still here, because now most designer handbags start around $2000 and go up.

And now I am coming at you from Washington DC. While walking towards baggage claim I saw everyone in the security check line. I realized one major thing; people were dressed ultra chic. Sure, I have on a nice pair of jeans, white top, and cute Ralph Lauren sandals, but I felt more like a Florida bum than a DC gal.

Prada’s little sister wants to make sure to show the crowd that she too can be extravagant and exotic. Miu Miu adorned herself with ostrich, to garner some attention. The Miu Miu Ostrich Satchel is made of lush taupe ostrich leather in a structured bag.

A different look from the house of Miu Miu, this clutch showcases leather plisse that adds an interesting dimension. The Miu Miu Leather Plisse Clutch is designed with gold metallic leather plisse and has a beautiful wrist strap.

If you did not like patent, you better learn to like it. Fall is all about patent leather handbags. I absolutely love the slight bit of edge that patent leather can bring to an accessory. Better yet, it looks super sleek and refined.

You can not tell me that you look at Reese Witherspoon and think she is not cute. Sometimes she looks gorgeous and elegant but all the time she looks cute as a button. Her daughter, Ava, is a complete mini-me, growing up looking just like her mom.

After a busy weekend with the family, I am somewhat back into the swing of things now. I find myself constantly checking back to find what bag I must have that is so reasonable now that it is finally on sale.

The shape is nothing special, but in fact, the shape of this designer handbag really pays homage to others in my opinion. Does this bag slightly resemble the Louis Vuitton Speedy to you? The Miu Miu Bowling Bag is simple enough, sporting black leather and gold hardware with double top handles.

The oversized handbag trend is still lingering, so many designers are deciding to keep riding the oversized wave and move on to clutches. What many designers cease to remember is that a clutch is meant to be carried in your hand.

Love the Prada Gaufre but hate the price? Then check out some of the latest designs from Miu Miu, the younger sister of Prada but also the just as pretty sister. Not exactly boasting the ruching but sporting elegant style and an across body option, the Miu Miu Nappa Soft Tote is a stunning option if the Prada price tag is a bit much.
