Saint-Laurent-Small-Sac-de-Jour-Wrapped-Handles-Red

If you’re a longtime bag lover or have even a passing interest in Hermès, you’ve probably seen plenty of photos of the brand’s bags with colorful scarves wrapped around the handles. Hermès makes a silk design, the Twilly, specifically for that purpose (although it’s also used for other things), and Birkin aficionados in particular have long used it as a way to customize their bags while protecting the handles from wear, discoloration and oil absorption.

Although it can seem like it at times, not everyone wants an It Bag, or even a bag that’s easily identifiable by brand. Even if you do love a conspicuous bag, you might not want to carry one for every occasion–maybe your boss or sister-in-law is the judgmental type, or maybe you work in an extremely conservative office.

We’re featuring all of our usual Real Housewives, ex-Real Housewives, TV personalities and pop starlets, and yet, some of these high-end handbag selections have frankly seen better days.

Kerry-Washington-Casadei-Blade-Suede-Pumps
Celebrity Style

Kerry Washington has carved out a space for herself in the fashion world using the pointy heel of a limited-edition Louboutin. She wears an insane amount of rare (and rarely seen again) Loubs in her day to day life, and in my own fantasy world, the brand promptly retires many of the styles afterwards, because how can you top Olivia Pope?

Bag Deals

As we bring yet another week to a close, we’ve reached the true doldrums of sale season–I had to look far and wide to come up with our customary list of 15 handbag markdowns worth your attention, but luckily, that’s exactly what I’m paid to sit here and do.

Coach Saddle 23 Bag floral printed haircalf
Coach

When Stuart Vevers transformed a portion of NYC’s iconic High Line for the Coach Spring 2016 show, I knew we were in for something special. Everything from the set to the music to the setting gave us a very floral infused 70s vibe and this translated into every item walking the runway.

Moschino Ankle Strap Sandal
Shoes

There’s nothing new about luxury designers cranking out, uh, interesting designs, especially on the runway. While we can rattle off lists of classic shoes, designs that are downright eccentric are always worth a look, and there’s an abundance of them this season.

The-Many-Bags-of-Lupita-Nyongo
Celebrity Style

Lupita Nyong’o’s rise to fame is one of the best things that’s happened to celebrity fashion-watchers in years. When she first caught the public’s attention during her Oscar run for 2013’s 12 Years a Slave, she established herself as someone who has a keen sense for color, supports designers both big and small and takes fashion risks that almost always pay off.

Coach-Complimentary-MonogrammingAt its best, fashion isn’t about fitting in–it’s about standing out. Right now, Coach is offering complimentary monogramming on a wide selection of both men’s and women’s leather goods, either via a removable hangtag on most pieces or, on select bags, directly on the design itself. You choose your color and font size and Coach does all the work; check out both the Coach women’s monogram shop and its men’s counterpart now.
