Memorial Day Sales: Red, White, and Blue Bags

Everyone’s favorite weekend has finally arrived! As a kid, I lived for the moment we could finally say, “school’s out for summer,” and now as a mom, I still love it for all the sale shopping.

Designinverso Shoulder Bags: Rain Over Me

Okay, the resemblance to a certain quilted, chain-strapped shoulder bag is obvious, but unless you’ve picked up a handbag raincoat, there’s no way you’d want to carry such a costly luxury in these fickle spring showers.

Snow-Proof Bags: Snow Day

Just like people, many bags prefer certain climates to others. I’m not just talking seasonal styles. While some only function happily on the balmiest days of summer, others are made with winter weather in mind – and the messiness that arrives with it.

Giuseppe Zanotti Zipped Nappa Leather Shoulder Bag

Giuseppe Zanotti Zipped Nappa Leather Shoulder Bag: Beat It

I love Giuseppe Zanotti. I really do. His shoes are exquisite and fabulous, and I can only wish I had the stamina to wear his stilettos daily. So as much as it pains me to do so, I’ve got to call it like I see it…

Karl Lagerfeld Spring ‘15 Collection

Karl Lagerfeld Spring ‘15 Collection: Karlito’s Way

It’s easy to get so wrapped up in Karl Lagerfeld’s stunning work for Chanel and Fendi that we forget he has his own eponymous line. But he does, and it’s pretty desirable in its own right, especially the Spring ’15 collection.

Moschino Bag-Embellished Cotton Jersey Hooded Top

Moschino Bag-Embellished Cotton Jersey Hooded Top: A Pouch with Punch

Two-for-one special, anyone? This is quite possibly the most functional trend, ever. Jeremy Scott (seriously, who else?!) at Moschino is determined to bring the term “hands-free” to brave new levels.

Marc Jacobs Bag

Marc by Marc Jacobs Heart to Heart Quilted Leather Shoulder Bag: Crossbody My Heart

This is a prime example of everything a Frugal Snob bag should be: flirty, fun, noncommittal, and lighthearted (no pun intended). If something like this cheekily romantic bag happened to veer off into the quadruple-digit price range, you would surely hear me exclaim that such a novelty purchase isn’t worth a big investment. But that’s not the case!

Finally, the long-awaited Moschino jacket bags are here. Yep, now you can wear your leather motorcycle jacket and carry it, too!
