My latest guilty pleasure: I’ve been staying up ’til the wee hours of the morning to watch “Nikita.” This girl is a glamorous badass! Not that I want to start carrying guns around (Bag Snob does not approve of concealed weapons!), but I’ve noticed the ever on-the-go Nikita doesn’t carry bags so I’ve been thinking about one for her. Then I serendipitously discovered these killer harnesses from RK New York: sexy, strong, and unconfining. Obviously, assassins need to keep their hands free (no clutches for this chick), but so do busy girls and working moms!
Which is why I can’t live without my messenger bags – this holster style uses the same concept, just taking it up a notch into much more seductive territory. It fits around your body like a shrug; with rocker-glam hardware, it’s got the look of a femme gun-holster. Like a clutch, the pouches are just big enough to hold your basics. Choose between crocodile-embossed leather, a lighter canvas-leather combo, leather and moiré, and distressed leather. I can’t wait to give this a shot! At RK New York for $695.
Pair with: Nikita would say yes to these stretch-leather pants by Current/Elliott. While black would be too severe for an already semi-threatening look, a deep jade hue lightens them up and makes you approachable. On Net-a-Porter for $855.
