It is barely fall in my neck of the woods. In fact, the high temperature yesterday was 85 and I wore flip flops to the mall. We’ve yet to experience our first cold snap in Atlanta, despite the fact that mid-October is approaching quickly, and already fashion wants me to start thinking about spring. I’m just not ready yet, but the beautiful color of the Bottega Veneta Large Lambskin Hobo provides plenty of distraction from my reticence.

As always with these types of bags, the key word in the name of the design is “lambskin.” Bottega’s is particularly wonderful, and in person, this bag is surely light as a feather. A very expensive, soft feather, but a feather nonetheless. (more…)

I just can’t use a cheap gym bag. I’ve tried to convince myself that it’s ok, but I spend 40 hours a week committed to the idea that utilitarian objects should be beautiful and well-made, and I just can’t shake that feeling when it comes time to work out.

For my purposes, the Tory Burch Palma Small Backpack would be a perfect choice. I don’t need to carry extra shoes or a change of clothes, just a hand towel, my iPod and a book, and this bag would handle all of that with style to spare. Maybe if I had such a bright, cheery gym bag, I’d work out more often. (more…)

This is the kind of bag that I yearn to touch. If you are in the market for a large handbag, this one might be the one for you. As soon as I came across the Sorial Electric Blue Ruched Leather Large Tote I instantly thought of myself toting it around on a daily basis. I don’t know about you, but a bright bag like this tends to do nothing but help bolster my mood. I can see myself pairing this bag with a great pair of jeans and a casual shirt. (more…)

There’s no doubt about it: turquoise, teal and any variation thereof are the colors of the season. And really, why shouldn’t they be? Blue-greens look fabulous against colors like white and yellow, which are nearly omnipresent during warmer months. It only fits.

In light of all that, I can’t help but like the Steven by Steve Madden Oversized Quilted Clutch in such a timely hue. I’ve never been overly impressed with the materials or finishes that the line uses, but the clutch is real leather, and the lines are simple and clean enough that it might appeal to those that have already written off the line. (more…)

Finally, Marc by Marc Jacobs. Finally. I had been severely underwhelmed by the recent offerings by the brand, which is one of my favorites, but it appears as though their Spring/Summer 2010 collection isn’t doomed to the sale rack after all. At least not if they continue to debut bags is pretty and functional as the Marc by Marc Jacobs Flash Leola Hobo.

When I see something in such a bright and cheerful shade, I can’t help but think of sun, sand, and warm weather. This beautiful blue is the color of the ocean off the coast of some far-off Caribbean island to which I have never been, but the bag does a good job of taking me directly there. Can I get a pina colada? (more…)

I’m not really one to sit and ruminate on a bag. When I see a new one, I either have something to say about it or I don’t, and if I do, it normally gets written about it shortly thereafter. Forming an opinion has never been difficult for me.

But when I saw the Michael Kors Roslyn Leather Shoulder Bag, I found myself experiencing a confusing, unfamiliar mix of feelings – I like the bag, but there’s something not quite right, and I’m having a difficult time putting my finger on it. Let’s discuss this bag’s details, shall we? After all, that’s usually where the devil is. (more…)

Oddly enough, I was attracted to this Tory Burch Nylon Ella Tote because I am wearing an outfit that consists of the exact same colors on this tote: grape and Egyptian teal. That aside, the tote practically screams cutesy and fun to me. It has that signature Tory Burch shape and style, but with a few minor quirks.

I first thought this bag would be perfect for the beach or pool, but the model shown carrying it is wearing the usual New Yorker outfit of black boots and parka. Surprisingly, the burst of color works very well with the outfit; perhaps Tory is suggesting that we infuse more color into our winter wardrobes? Whatever the case, it’s a playful mix of sophisticated and fun. (more…)

Teal has always been one of my favorite bag colors. It’s vibrant enough to be considered a bright, but it’s not bright enough to be offensive or garish. And most people like blue, so teal tends to get lumped into that as well.

Which is why I like the Francesco Biasia Emily IV Crinkled Leather Tote so much. It’s a beautiful color, it’s all leather, and it’s priced very fairly – plus, who can’t use a roomy tote from time to time? (more…)

DKNY Stamped Leather Clutch

I really, really want to like the DKNY Stamped Leather Clutch, but I think the embossed croc pattern is bothering me too much to embrace all of the positives of its design. (more…)

Some bags look great in photos and terrible in person, some look the same in both, and some look blah in photos and amazing in person. Even though the Katherine Kwei Joyce Carryall looks pretty good, if a tad sloppy, in its photos, I think it would look beyond amazing in person.

Obviously, two things jump out at first: the color and the knotting. Let’s talk about the knotting first, shall we?

I said not too long ago that I was experiencing some ennui in regards to the Marc Jacobs Stam, but as it turns out, I was wrong. That’s right, I’m a big, fat liar. Because I’m in love with the Stam again, and this time it’s because of the Marc Jacobs Stardust Stam. If this is an It-Bag gone wrong, then I don’t want to be right.

Marc Jacobs Stardust Stam

Not only do I love the name (it reminds me of Las Vegas, a city which I am newly obsessed with thanks to The Hangover), but the updates are subtle enough to retain the charm of the original Stam while still being interesting enough to catch the eye of any handbag fan that’s familiar with the line. Studs are a somewhat trendy bag accent, but the ones here are small enough to not overpower an already iconic design. Plus, there’s the color – a beautiful, bright teal that will add a pop of color to any drab winter outfit. I’m usually not much for gold hardware, but I still think that it’s the only way to go with the Stam, and the combination here is beautiful. Buy through Nordstrom for $1450.
