Fall Bag Round Up: My Top Ten

Every woman deserves a new fabulous handbag for Fall. It’s a rite of passage come the first week of September, for women to ditch the beat up summer bag and swap the lighter hue for a darker Fall-friendly option.

While a new bag may not be in everyone’s cards, it’s still fun to dream, so here are my would-be picks for a new Fall purse:

Lanvin Pise Sac, $2,200.00

The leather flap front bag with the grosgrain interlaced gold chain is totally glam and ladylike. Love that it can work with either day or night.

  

Work by Balenciaga, $1,495.00

The buttery soft lambskin and vibrant violet hue are my dream come true in purse form. I love this bag and always will.

The deep dark blue colour is a subtle change from black and brown.

Robinson Shoulder Bag by Tory Burch, $545

A fresh white hue stands out amongst Fall’s darker palette, but the lizard and patent accents keep it from being too glaringly bright. I like the equestrian vibe!

Large Patent Nightingale by  Givenchy, $1,895.00

Totally diva red patent leather is a great way to incorporate colour into a neutral wardrobe and add some flash while still staying classy.image

St. Louis PM by Goyard, $750

Goyard’s St Louis is elegant and functional as an everyday carry-all. Love the bright blue undertones and the timeless design.

Patent leather details liven up this traditional preppy look. I like the fact that can work with both black and brown outfits equally well.

Morgan Satchel by  Botkier, $650.00

Black lambskin with zip detail and fringe looks right at home with fall’s  biker leather jackets, or it can add some sass to an otherwise prim get-up.

Patchwork Leather Stam Bag Marc Jacobs, $1,550.00

This classic silhouette from Marc Jacobs is sinfully sweet in this chocolate hue. I could do without how heavy the strap is but it sure looks great!

Erin” Kooba,  $325.00

This pleated clutch has an adjustable and removable shoulder strap for clutch-a-phobics like me, plus it’s just the right size for a night out at a bar.

Seashell Minaudière by by R. & Y. Augousti,  $1,250.00

I know I said I didn’t love clutches, but I’d make an exception for this exquisite  minaudière. It’s so regal yet boho – love it with an LBD and emerald earings!

Love them all - except for that tory burch one!! It looks like something my mom would have had in the 70's and like a weird liz claiborne purse that was in my dress up box when I was a kid!!
Kooba looks like my kooba bow wallet!!

Oh I LOVE purses. They feed me more than food. I like the Botiker one. Their bags for Target aren't even that bad looking. I just bought an LV as a birthday gift, and I'm done with bags now again for a while :) E
