Morning Line: December 2

Dec 2, 2014

This week, I thought we’d talk about handbags.  The morning posts will feature the totes, satchels, and clutches that complete the majority of my outfits.  And every bag will cost under-$100.

Tumbled Leather Braided Satchel ($75)

A cognac tote is my casual, weekend, and vacation staple.  The cognac goes with nearly every color palette.  And I love the sculpted shape of this tote and the braided handles; it takes the casual bag and lifts it a notch.

Looking for a slouchier tote?  This Torrid bag is a great place to start.  Old Navy offers a relaxed tote for $22 that’s worth a look.  I also like this zippered tote from Neiman Marcus for a little extra flare.

Prefer a satchel?  I like the angular lines on this Steve Madden satchel and this Emperia Rikki Tote is a nice mix of tote and satchel.

    Yay handbags! Looking forward to your under-$100 options.

    And if you want to take a morning this week and talk about investment bags that can carry a laptop, lunch, and an extra pair of shoes, keep out prying hands on the metro, and still look professional and up-to-date, I’d love it. I have a Lo&Sons and it works fine, but I really wish there was a quality leather equivalent out there. (Oh Everlane, please make a bag that closes on top.)

    Check out the fun and colourful line from Dreams in Colour for more bags under $100 (planning a beach getaway in the winter, then you need one of these!)

    I just bought the tumbled leather braided satchel and it was only $45 with some kind of extended Cyber Monday sale!

    This is kind of random, and it may be only me, but I tend to click on photos thinking they’ll link to content. Yours only link to the attachment page. It might be more user-friendly to either turn off the linking or link to the content.

    Just a suggestion!

Yesterday, we chatted about not-see-through tees. Today, I want to talk about jeans. I am so grateful wide leg denim is back in a big way. And if you’re going to the office, you need a trouser style jean to see you through the week (or just casual Friday). Here are some favorites in different […]

The Find: A Miracle T-Shirt

Remember when clothes didn’t suck? The years were the late-90s and early-aughts. Jeans stretched a little, but were mostly cotton. Cashmere was soft and heavy and durable. Poly-blends were only sold at the giant teens stores on the lower level of the mall. And t-shirts were thick, not see-through, and wore like iron. Your first […]
