My favorite picks of this season's most ladylike bags: Frame purses, delicate chain shoulder straps, gold detailing, scallops, and applique. I'm pretty much addicted to any bag with an envelope or very thin boxy shape. Funny, since I can't fit half of my crap in those.
Oh, the suffering!
Wait, I'm kidding. While I do feel rather naked and unprepared leaving the house without every business card I've ever been given and might happen to need, or a petite stash of bandaids, cough drops, and Airborne- just in case... this size purse is often (as much as I hate to admit it) really all I need. Furthermore, I suspect the challenge of minimizing my arsenal of "just in case" is good therapy. And I'm sure my shoulder thanks me.
Regardless of all of those therapeutic benefits, I say the biggest win with these bags is the air of super-ultra-chic-ness that comes with effortlessly channeling bygone eras - you know, those eras when women knew how to dress.
