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!

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
