Maiyet Amonet Leather Shoulder Bag: Order of the Day

Sleek, clean, and created for instant organization: Consider Maiyet’s Amonet bag your new little helper. We’re seeing a lot of these über-compartmentalized bags lately, as if it’s almost a new trend, and I’m loving it.

Reed Krakoff Gallery Leather Shoulder Bag

Reed Krakoff Gallery Leather Shoulder Bag: Gallery Girls
