It was a tough call for this week’s bag of the week, but we decided on a rather unique new bag we got in called the The Must Have Bag Of The Year. The name raised an eyebrow, but once we laid eyes on the bag we understood. It’s busy, without being gauche. It’s sophisticated in its shape, but playful and fun with its printed pattern. The gold chain and colorful tassels remind us of quilted Chanel bags from the 1980’s, and we really dig that vintage couture vibe. Since it’s black leather with navy blue and gold decoration, it still manages to go with most anything. It’s the perfect “not too big/not too small” size we love in a bag, and its festive appearance means it will look good at parties and fancy outings. All in all, we think this bag can do no wrong.
Priced at an incredibly reasonable $45, you can see why we consider this to be the “Must Have” bag of the year.

Our pick for Bag of the Week this week is the IT Vintage Leather bag It is made of a buttery soft, high quality leather, and comes equipped with soft burnished gold hardware. Little zips, a faux flap closure, and the ability to carry this as either a shoulder bag or handbag give this purse a little something extra. This is a sexy, yet functional bag, than can be worn a variety of ways.
Here are three ways to wear this versatile bag:
You may have noticed an unusual accessory cropping up in fashion pictures across the land: the fox tail keychain. We love foxes, but are sad to think of their tails being lopped off for a fashion trend. That’s why our new Designer Inspired Tote has a faux fox fur keychain.
We’ll keep you trendy, and your ethics can remain intact. As such, this gorgeous designer inspired bag accessorized with the season’s hottest trend is our pick for Bag of the Week.
In our second Friday installment of “Bag of the Week” there seems to be one clear contender. This bag is a new arrival, and it’s probably going to sell out quickly. We’re speaking, of course, of the The Vintage. Even though we already mentioned it as one of the many perfect accessories to use to capture the Schoolgirl Chic Look, it should be noted that this bag is more than just a flash-in-the-pan trend.
Its graceful structure and supple leather qualify it for the category of “Timeless Classic.” Indeed, this bag is reminiscent of vintage Salvatore Ferragamo and leather Lanvin bags from the 60’s. Since the recent vintage revival in the fashion industry, there have been many vintage-inspired bags from top designers, but none beat the simple, gorgeous look of our bag. Coming in two shades, rich oxblood and matte black, this casual handbag looks best with business, casual, and vintage-themed outfits. It’s all too easy to picture this vintage classic shape on the arm of Peggy Olsen in Mad Men, or in the hands of Marianne Faithfull back in her hey-day.
It’s hard not to covet a bag where every detail (luxurious leather, subtle silver hardware, vintage-inspired flap closure, etc.) is so perfect – which is why this is our pick for Bag of the Week!
