Every Fashionista needs her staple, go-to bag that can go anywhere, at anytime and with any outfit. This Fashionista found that perfect fit. When I first spotted her, I couldn’t get over just how chic her look was: the tan shearling vest, the silk slacks and the pointed cheetah flats. She took three overly trendy items, and put them together to create a look perfect for a girl’s night out or a shopping day in the city. After swooning over her wardrobe, my eyes then could not get off of that fabulous leather satchel. The size is perfect for any co-ed since it’s big enough to fit books for class, but is still manageable. The neutral color (though this one is black, I would suggest a camel or chocolate leather also) will go with any outfit in any season.
After a quick chat with this Fashionista about her magnificent find, I found that she purchased the accessory in Florence, Italy during her semester abroad. Most of us aren’t as lucky to travel across oceans for the perfect Italian leather, but never fear! The United States has options just as great. For the Fashionista looking for that once-in-a-lifetime splurge, Neiman Marcus carries several designers and styles like this one. For the budget-savvy Fashionista, like myself, check out Urban Outfitters or Francesca’s for more reasonably priced, yet still adorable bags. Don’t forget to check out the buckles and zippers on the satchel; this Fashionista was smart to add a statement gold cuff to match the gold accents on her Italian beauty.
Spotted: For Louis Vuitton’s fall 2012 ready-to-wear, paired up with Marc Jacobs to create one of fashion’s greatest power couples. Each of Jacob’s female models was paired with a male model carrying at least one of Louis Vuitton’s famous leather totes. Take a cue from the masters and carry those bags with fierceness.
