Reed Krakoff RK40 Leather Tote: This Is Forty

Whether in charming mini size or a roomier, classic-tote scale, it’s effortless from work to weekend and whatever happens in between. I’m a sucker for a gorgeous interior, and this one reveals lush suede lining with multiple pockets. Obviously, the outside is just as good. Not only is the look of the design divine, but bless you, Reed, for the slim exterior back pocket that fits the iPhone 6.

The Row Satchel 12 Textured-Leather Tote: Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough

For a long time, Mary Kate and Ashley were known for their oversized bags (and oversized dresses, sunglasses…you know), but it seems they know how to pare down just as well as they know how to go big.

Classic Bags that Never Go Out of Style

Classic Bags that Never Go Out of Style: Save Now, Splurge Later

We may want every new bag that hits the market, but the fact of the matter is that we couldn’t (or at least shouldn’t) actually buy every single one. It’s all about picking and choosing.

Bertoni Top Handle

Bertoni Icon Stripes French Calf Doriana Top Handle: Case Closed!

This structured Bertoni top handle tote possesses a great classic shape and features a cool trio of three-dimensional stripes, but that’s not what got me hooked here. I’m most interested in the bag’s unique closure. It’s a ball that glides through the keyhole opening…

Miu Miu New Madras Collection

Miu Miu New Madras Collection: All Grown Up

Prada’s little sister is all grown-up! Just don’t think her any less playful. The essence of Miu Miu has always been that of a woman who’s old enough to know better but is too spirited to care, and the polished New Madras collection perfectly embodies that effervescence.

Tyler Alexandra Doctor Bag

Tyler Alexandra Jamie Medium Doctor’s Bag: The Right Frame of Mind

We all love carrying a good doctor’s bag every once in a while, but some real differentiation is a must when I’m getting a new one. Tyler Alexandra’s take on the classic style fits the bill. The fully structured yet soft, light feel is appealing on many levels.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2015 Collection

Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2015 Collection: Join the Club

This is Marc’s house, and no two ladies know it better than the duo currently at the little-sister line’s helm, Luella Bartley and Katie Hillier. While they’re currently heading up the design team (and doing an excellent job of it), that doesn’t mean Marc isn’t here in spirit. Or in actuality, as a matter of fact.
