Iâ€™m definitely not what youâ€™d call a jetsetter, but I canâ€™t imagine leaving my house without a small arsenal of electronics, magazines, cosmetics, a wallet, a can of Diet Cherry Coke and my keys. Sure, those tiny only-holds-a-platinum-card-and-a-lipstick clutches are chic, but donâ€™t starlets ever find the need to lug their stuff around like the rest of us? I know they have â€œpeopleâ€ for that, but itâ€™s so refreshing to see Anne Hathawayâ€™s bulging Tory Burch Patent T-Tote ($295).
Big bags got a bum rap ages ago when the nasty rumor that they made you look heavier started circulating, but look what the bright red tote does for Anne. It adds a punch of color to her sophisticated black ensemble, and it gives her major street cred: you know sheâ€™s not above schlepping around scripts or a Vogue or two, just like the rest of us.
Plus, Tory Burchâ€™s logo is hot right now (anyone whoâ€™s been dancing around in her signature Reva ballet flats can tell you that much), and this perforated version has just the right amount of labelism. Itâ€™s not too loud, but itâ€™s visible enough to say â€œluxury.â€ Look for the bag in Anneâ€™s red, and also Honey Orange, Black or White patent leather.
