Enchanting exotics, luscious leathers: sure, I’m obsessed, but they can only take you so far. Sometimes you feel something more pitch-perfect in respect to the upcoming season, and I’m smitten with this Miu Miu handbag for fall. A ladylike frame countered with luxurious dark gray wool-felt is exactly what I want at the moment, setting me on an elegant track for September.
A flat and slender tote with a pin-thin handle – this is a nod to the 1940s when women didn’t carry much more than a lipstick and compact. (And it’s happily modern enough to fit an iPhone or two.) Miu Miu has picked up on the retro trend, and I’m so excited to announce glamour is back! Of course, I’m not saying this tote could be found in some couture vintage shop. With the tactile surprise of puffy fabric, it’s got a directional spin. It gets better: lined in nude leather, the interior is grown-up and gorgeous. Truly timeless and totally touchable. Katherine Hepburn would be envious. On Net-a-Porter for $1,350.
Pair with: Warm up to the plush stuff and wrap Donna Karan’ yummy shearling scarf around your neck. Glamorous and chunky, it will update any jacket or coat, just in time to carry a wool-felt purse. Donna Karan Shearling Scarf, $1,295.
