I used to more or less ignore Badgley Mischka Platinum Label. I didn’t think they were particularly interesting, or that they made bags that would be worth the money or that would be all that appealing to our readers.
And I was wrong, and I love being wrong in these instances, because it means that there are more bags for us all to lust over. And today, my offering to you is the Badgley Mischka Platinum Label Aurelia Tote.
The bag is simple but stylish, and screams “carry me every day!” And really, there’s nothing about it that would stop you. It’s a nice chocolate brown (which is, of course, not my favorite – but whatever floats your boat, folks), the handles are long enough to wear it comfortably on your shoulder, and it looks like it would be big enough to stuff your scarf into it on a winter day.
It’s a bit simple for my personal taste, but not everyone wants to carry something covered head-to-toe in studs or another trend. And not everyone has the luxury of carrying those bags – many women work in conservative offices and still want to be fashionable without drawing an unprofessional amount of attention to their fashion choices. And for women with simpler preferences or lifestyle needs, something like this is perfect. Buy through Saks for $475.
