Furla Perla Mini Crossbody Tote: Perla of Wisdom

This adorable little bag has such a great shape. It’s taken some inspiration from a classic north-south tote and restyled it to irresistibly detailed effects. Tapering towards the top, it’s got the same of appeal as a bucket yet it’s totally different.

Roger Vivier Small Pilgrim De Jour Leather Bag: Making the Pilgrimage

I have to say, I’m not a big fan of the giant pilgrim buckle that’s a recurring trademark from Roger Vivier, especially when it’s featured on their shoes, but there’s almost always an exception to the rule. This tote totally works.

For Game of Thrones fans, this ornately embroidered Valentino bag will make you feel like the Mother of Dragons. As for everyone else, it will make you feel just plain chic, and that’s enough to get me obsessing!

Stella McCartney Heart Falabella Faux-Suede Crossbody Bag

Stella McCartney Heart Falabella Faux-Suede Crossbody Bag: Be Still, My Heart

A lot of people, myself included, love a Stella McCartney crossbody bag just because it is guaranteed to be so easy. You don’t have to worry about messing it up, since it’s not genuine skin, and the Falabella’s trademark chain detail dresses things up, even when you’re not.

Prada Vitello Daino Medium Pocket Hobo Bag

Prada Vitello Daino Medium Pocket Hobo Bag: Black-Hole Sun

I love a good hobo bag, but they’re kind of like black holes. If you’ve ever rifled through one of your adorably soft and slouchy hobos in search of keys or a ringing phone (which is soon to be a missed call), then you’ll know what I’m talking about. Prada has the answer with their Daino hobo bag.
