Céline Boxy Handbag

Céline Boxy Handbag: Don’t Weight for Me

Phoebe Philo knows how to make a beautiful bag and then some – there is no doubt about that. But when it comes to the pragmatic side of bags, her prowess just does not come close.

3.1 Phillip Lim Ryder Small Zip Crossbody Bag

3.1 Phillip Lim Ryder Small Zip Crossbody Bag: Pale September

“Pale pink for fall?” you say? “Buy pastel now?” you wonder, aghast? I know, I know. It seems a little backwards – but that’s precisely what I like about the prospect of purchasing this newly released 3.1 Phillip Lim bag right now.

Jil Sander Bag

Carven Burgundy Leather Chain-Lock Tote

Carven Burgundy Leather Chain-Lock Tote: Locked & Loaded

I need to make an amendment to my Friday post on burgundy bagsthis is one of the top five! Namely because finding a sophisticated tote of this quality under $1,000 just doesn’t happen. With an exterior flap pocket, expandable gussets, and a simple chain lock, Carven keeps the focus on subtle, functional details.
