reader question: fall handbags?

A reader email me recently wanting advice on a fall handbag.  She was up for making an investment on a handbag up to $400 (I always think an investment on a handbag is a good one... they look and feel better and last infinitely longer) and wanted to know if I had any suggestions.

Here are my tips on trends for fall bags... and take note, while some of the bags are in the pricey range ($200 - $400) not all of them are!

The messenger-style handbag... these are totally classic and ultra refined.  They can be worn on a shoulder or cross-body and can carry anything from the basics to an extra sweater or pair of flats and a laptop. I love this simple silhouette and the roominess!

The tasseled or drawstring handbag... anything with a tassle or a drawstring on it seems to be right on trend this season.  They are very classic looking without being boring.

The tote or animal print... I'm all for a tote.  Maybe that's just the mom in me, but I love having something that my camera, laptop, sweatshirts, snacks or whatever can easily fit into.  Sure it may make looking for your keys a hassle, but for me I love to have everything with me.  

Don't forget to check out what's going on at my other blogs today!
