I always have a soft spot in my heart for Isabella Fiore because doing a search for one of the brand’s bags is what brought me to PurseBlog for the first time in 2005, and thankfully, its colorful, exuberant designs mostly validate my affection. Fiore’s bags may be a bit boisterous for some people, but if you’re looking to add a strong dose of personality to your wardrobe, there’s scarcely a more surefire way to do it.
The Isabella Fiore Deco Frieda Crossbody Bag is one of the things that the brand does best – although this much beading would normally be reserved for night, the scale and color of this bag makes it an attractive daytime option.
Because brown and cream isn’t a combination that shows up in much evening or cocktail clothing, the color scheme is the first clue that this bag would be a lot of fun for daytime. Particularly in winter, when mixing textures is just as important as mixing colors, this bag provides an opportunity for another layer of thought. And at nine inches wide, it sits perfectly between a minibag and an everyday bag – you’ll have no problem fitting your essentials inside. Buy through Saks for $295.
