Snag The Bag (Before Everyone Else Does)

February 29, 2008 by SheFindsCatesby

It's about to snow here in New York City, which got me thinking about handbags for spring. (I know that doesn't make sense, but somehow it's true.) A few truly eye-catching purses have been popping up around town since Fashion Week, so here's a glimpse of what the people who know have dangling from their arms. Get yours before everyone else does.


What: This lightweight M Z Wallace Jane bag ($325) is coated in teflon to make it water resistant. A month ago I knew one fashionista with this purse, but then she came into the office with it, and now I know three. It's just gorgeous in the moss with amethyst color scheme (above), but for spring you might like the sizzling orange or shiny tangiers linen versions.

Crafted from Italian leather (the green one above uses calf leather; the black and white versions are patent) with suede interior, this oversized Tumi Palm Beach Tote ($850) will look as great on the beaches of its namesake city as it will on the sidewalks of yours. And you wouldn't believe the texture! 

For something more compact, try this Marc Jacobs bag ($498). It's funkier than what we normally see from him (like the beautiful but conservative stam bag), but I love the burgundy color and crinkled patent leather, and the flat bottom means that it actually sits up when you put it down (to strap on your Manolos).

And if you just don't care what the fashionistas are showing off, and just want a good-looking new bag to satisfy your spring shopping obsession, you should always check out the offerings at Bluefly, and control your selection by price. The $100-$199 range has a lot of designer options at reduced prices, as well as lesser-known labels that simply make beautiful bags. A quick search in this category today gave me more eyecandy than I could handle, but here are just two of my finds: This Via Spiga Neela tassle tote ($118.99) is timelessly chic, with a tassle's nod to modernity.

And I'm a sucker for anything green, so this BCBGMAXAZRIA studded buckle bag ($169) immediately drew my attention. The thick belt-strap handle is a nice detail.
