Summer’s almost over – can you believe it?? Soon you’ll have to pack up those itty-bitty bikinis and sandals for next year. Lucky for Alessandra Ambrosio, the sun shines in L.A. all year long, giving her time to master the signature Cali girl style.
My love affair with Tod’s bags dates back to college. Why the lifelong obsession, you ask? I learned at a very young age that the beauty of a Tod’s bag is in its deceptive simplicity and that a girl needs that one chic bag she can take literally everywhere and wear with anything to be well-dressed.
Anne Hathaway has an easy, confident style that’s hard not to adore. She’s always carrying something unique – this time it’s Freedom of Animals’ black and teal Melia. Besides its standout look, the bag is also noteworthy for being vegan-friendly. Its NYC-based brand constructed it from vegetable-dyed, recycled faux leather and lined the interior in organic cotton.
Roger Vivier’s Prismick Zig Zag shoulder bag is one of the best pairings of black and white I have ever seen. Asymmetric and geometric, it delights with expertly stitched lines for a multi-dimensional effect.
There were a lot of great contenders, but the snob votes are in and we pronounce Alexander McQueen’s Heroine mini the “it” mini bag this fall. Heroine’s miniaturized structured shape has been seen on the likes of Zoe Saldana and Sienna Miller who chose to wear them crossbody.
When you’re rushing around NYC like Miranda Kerr, a mini bag is the only way to go. I love Louis Vuitton’s toned down Monceau BB (at Louis Vuitton for $1,720). Okay, bright pink patent isn’t exactly toned down – I’m talking monogram-wise. And remember, Loeffler Randall has a Frugal option!
