Valextra Maxi “Tammy” Bag: Meet Tammy, My New BFF

Oh, Valextra, how I love you so. Let me to count the ways with this new spring handbag. This perfect ladylike bag is delicate yet strong – precisely how I like my satchels. The rose gold frame is the most beguiling yet simplest bit of hardware I’ve seen on a bag this spring. The size is large enough without being tote-bag big. Sharp, lean edges and slightly expandable sides add up to energy and depth. The only negative is that right white, or “pergamina white” (aka vellum white), is a bit tough to keep clean but the grained leather can be wiped down. Snob secret: baby wipes work great. Now could anything be more elegant for summer? At Barneys New York for $2,860.

Pair with: Doesn’t this sleek handle make you crave an ornate wrist-piece? Like Valentino’s 22-karat gold pearl and Swarovski crystal floral cuff. Freshwater pearls and dazzling white leather. Perfection. On Net-a-Porter for $745.
