Barbara Bui Medium Leather Bag: I Felt With You

One word for Fall 2014: Felt. Well, let me put it this way. Céline is already doing it, so as if that doesn’t solidify the trend, I’ll reiterate: Barbara Bui has incorporated the once-humble fabric into an elevated level of perfection.

Michael Kors Collection Harlow Large Shopper Handbag: He’s Still Got It

With MICHAEL Michael Kors becoming so ubiquitous (look around the mall or TSA line, and see how many you can spot), it has definitely chipped away at the luxury of the Michael Kors Collection.

Frugal Friday: MARC by Marc Jacobs Isle de Sea Straw Woven Circle Crossbody Bag

Don’t let the fresh crop of fall goods already in stores fool you. We are still in the midst of summer (happily!), and that means it’s not time to throw in the beach towel just yet. What I need now is an all-out fun bag, something non-committal and capricious that’s not going to require a lot of thought or pondering. Especially since I’m going to Vegas next week.

Jérôme Dreyfuss Eliot Ponyhair & Leather Small Bag: Something to Fawn Over

The saying goes, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, but the latest variations on Jérôme Dreyfuss’ well-loved bag styles have me thinking that change can be a good thing. A very good thing.
