Top Fantasy-to-Reality Bags: Flights of Fancy

What bag would you buy if money was no object and practicality was of no consequence? I know I would leap for something altogether fanciful, heavy on whimsy and irreverence (and yes, heavy on the wallet, too). Like one of these seven clutches, each seemingly designed to help you elude reality for an evening or two – and light up your bag closet for years to come. Here, my current favorite crazy-unusual bags worth a mega-splurge because we could all use an escape every now and again.

Top 5 Favorite Bag-and-Shoe Pairings: Best Party Couples

When it comes to coordinating your bag and shoes, the natural tendency is to go matchy-matchy, but that look is always very safe and lackluster. A little less literal is the route to take. What we want, especially for an occasion like a party, is to punctuate the pairing with personality.
