+ Look for Less

10th Commandment: January 17

As I mentioned earlier this week, a black and white handbag is a purse that you can carry from winter into spring and summer.  It lightens up all black attire and it pairs well with summer colors.  So if you’re looking for a new bag that needs to be carried in multiple seasons, consider a black and white satchel.

I also liked this modern flap-top satchel ASOS ($60)–very cool shape.

    Thanks for posting! I was just looking for the perfect black and white handbag last night (I even considered writing in to ask for some suggestions in the under $100 category).

    I can’t wait to receive the Aldo bag. It is EXACTLY what I was looking for.

      I’m sorry about that, I think it was on a short sale when I found it. I guess the price went back up. Apologies.
