Satchels and the City

Carrie Bradshaw would approve. I can see her sporting one of these rhinestone-studded City Satchels around the big city. Whether having lunch with the girls, trying on Manolos, or drinking Cosmos at some exclusive club, this unassuming bag would allow her to be both stylish and practical. And priced at only $24, it would leave her extra money to purchase those Manolos. I imagine her wearing one wrapped ...

Born to be Wild

This bag is not for the faint of heart. The unexpected pairing of multicolored leathers and quilted wool, the fall color scheme, and assorted details all make this bag interesting. The glossy leather is a stark contrast to the matte wool, which makes it versatile. Its edginess and long-term wearability make it almost worth the $498 price tag. Almost. If you want to live life in the fast lane, race ...
