Clare Vivier ‘Foldover Clutch‘ – $156
Start small with this foldable suede clutch in “Royal Blue Pebble.” This utilitarian beauty made out of textured leather is simple and stylish. The red zipper lining provides a hot color contrast and enhances it’s overall appeal. As a bonus, French designer Clare Vivier’s products are all made locally in California (still in the States means decent shipping time). We see this one accompanying you on some amazing nighttime adventures!
Rebecca Minkoff ‘MAC Bag’ – $295
Stop. Leather time! This gorgeous light blue bag can be worn not one, not two, but THREE ways! Sling it across your body for a hands-free, casual look. Carry it as a chic clutch by simply removing the silver chain strap. Or better yet, double up the chain and transform it into a short shoulder bag perfect for running errands. Three bags for the price of one?! Yes, please!
Cole Haan ‘Jade Small Satchel’ – $348
Not too big and not too small, this purse is a great option for everyday! Navy patent leather and suede have joined forces to create one pretty satchel. The patchwork detail on the front and rear of the purse adds unexpected texture to such a classic shape. Carry this bag in your hand or utilize the shoulder strap for some cross-body action. Don’t be surprised when the compliments keep-a-coming!
Juicy Couture ‘Naomi Messenger Bag’ – $148
Are you in need of a carry-all purse or a bag to tote around your favorite books and/or a laptop? Then check out this ‘geek chic’ neoprene messenger bag. This electric blue version with tan leather trim is very modern. Both guys and gals can appreciate this sleek design, so if the man in your life doesn’t mind the juicy couture label, then look no further for his holiday gift. And if he does, then you’ve got a gift for yourself!
JJ Winters ‘Suede Fringe Bag’ – $409
We’ve all seen fringe bags in neutral colors, but take it up a notch with this tiered suede bag in blue. Technically, this bag’s official color is turquoise, but it definitely reads as more of a muted sky blue. Aside from the unique color, the braided strap adds a cool touch. This roomy option is awesome for the gal who is convinced she needs to tote around everything she owns. Show ’em that bag ladies can look good too!
Cleobella ‘Cantina Medium’ – $170
This aqua bag is breathtaking! The decorative cut-outs and stitching on this leather accessory give off a cool boho vibe. Its lengthy strap and tarnished buckle keep it casual though for crossbody fashion. Rock this bag during a chill outing with your girls (Sunday brunch, anyone? ). We guarantee your awesome style will be anything but watered down!
Marc by Marc Jacobs ‘Snake Chain Cubey Satchel’ – $428
This leather bag features trendy snake print, but still holds a timeless appeal due to its relaxed satchel shape. Its body has just the right amount of slouchiness (that’s a sentence you don’t read everyday), yet the gold accents and sapphire tassel are what really tie everything together. It’s the small details that make us fall in love with this bag, and it’s love at first sight for us!
