10th Commandment: January 23

Jan 23, 2013

Hi Belle,

Last year, I purchased a red handbag on your recommendation. I love it. I carry it all the time. Do you have any more suggestions for colorful handbags?

Thank you in advance! Tia

A red handbag is a bold choice, so how about another: a citron bag.  This bright yellow is suited for navy and white in summer, and grey and taupe in winter.

Boston Bag Satchel ($179)

Ollie Satchel Bag ($68)

Not feeling bright yellow?  This Coach tote comes in 17 colors.  And if you prefer a neutral palette, this Dooney and Bourke bag comes in eight earth tones.

    The first two look far too summer/spring to me to wear in fall or winter.

    I have a raspberry bag that I wear a lot more than I thought I would. It's not this bag, but is this color: https://www.katespade.com/cobble-hill-andee/PXRU3179,default,pd.html?dwvar_PXRU3179_color=001&start=1&cgid=handbags
    May be too close to red for the OP, but thought I'd mention it for anyone else.

    Thanks for finding the Kenneth Cole citron bag, I have beren lusting after the Coach totes (Legacy and Candice) in yellow for a while but they're all out of my price range. Although I may dig up a vintage Coach tote my mom gave me a while back that's a bright teal- theyre making the same color bags again this season.

    I have the D&B Dillen satchel in plum, and it is the perfect non-black or brown bag for winter. It goes with all winter neutrals and is cute and interesting but unexpected in purple. I get compliments on it all the time. It's also a great size – not too big but large enough to carry your essentials. I highly recommend it!

I will probably not open Instagram for the next two days. The Prime Day madness is just too thick. 90% of the items being promoted are things that I’ll throw away in two months (or less). But there are a handful of things I will use and are grateful to grab at a discount, here […]
