Spring 2011 is all about orange, and if you don’t like orange, well…that sucks for you, I guess. But keep an open mind! Pinkish, coral-y collars like that of the Marc by Marc Jacobs Natasha Crossbody will pull you in with their considerable charms in no time, if only you’ll give them the opportunity.
The Natasha is an easy bag to love in any color; it’s made of great leather and generously proportioned for its price, plus it’s the kind of purse that proves itself useful over and over again, in a variety of situations. But this particular shade of melon not only reminds us that spring and warm weather are coming, but also that being on-trend can often be great fun as well as great fashion. I’m not even a great lover of orange, but bags like this one make me want to convert. Just in the nick of time, too. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $350.
