Prada first introduced the “Bring Your Own Bag” in 2010, and I’m thrilled to see it reintroduced this summer. Five years was almost too long to wait! That’s because this is seriously the most useful, versatile bag on the face of the earth – and you know I would not say this lightly.

Have enough red-soled heels in your closet? (I think we all do.) It’s time to start getting hip to Christian Louboutin bags. We weren’t always so enthusiastic about the sexy shoe guru’s handbags, but the brand’s new collection of oversized clutches is absolutely divine!
