Miu Miu Leopard-Print Calf Hair & Python Satchel: Combo Platter

Show me a bag that’s quintessentially Miu Miu and I’ll show you a bag that exudes quirk and glamour in equal measure, thanks to an unfailing way with wacky combinations that somehow work.

KARA Stowaway Large Crossbody Bag: Great to Go

It’s the season of long days and sometimes even longer nights, and that means you need a bag that’s ready to go when you want to play. This one by KARA (the casual-cool, New York City-based label founded by Sarah Law and of no relation to Kara Ross) is so cute.

My love of small bags continues: I am insane over this mini Jimmy Choo messenger. It seriously has to be mine this very minute. Needless to say, this is a truly emotional buy, one I’m content to make with little to no thought.
