Summer Handbags Under $1000

We’ve been perusing the fashion magazines and have selected some of our favorite designer handbags for Summer 2012!
We love the Jimmy Choo Capri Small Shopper.  It’s got a glittering finish, zebra jacquard lining for some added zing, golden hardware and flat shoulder straps for comfort.  It’s made in Italy and you can buy it through our friends at Neiman Marcus…


If you don’t want to go the black route and you favor the classic Tiffany blue, check out this fabulous Tiffany Whitney Basket Satchel, that retails for $995. 


Since Duchess Catherine donned green on her North America tour, green has been big.   We’ve been big fans of Kelly Green for years.  This grassy green Mulberry carryall is named for a cosmopolitan district of London.  ”The Baywater” (as it is called) has soft, pebbled leather with polished gold hardware.  It’s got a fold over flap with a signature “Postman’s Lock”.  It’s $1000 through BlueFly.


Bright colors are fun but for those of you out there who favor blacks and neutrals, we love this snake printed leather Longchamp bag for $930, through Neiman Marcus.


If pink is your passion, try this signature Valentino design.  Made in Italy, it features a bow and has plenty of storage with two large compartments.  Pair it with your Lilly and Pucci shifts this summer!


Prada is always nice and we love this cobalt blue and canvas tote.  It retails at $1000.  It’s very Hamptons!  


Can’t get to Rome this summer to throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain and make a wish?  Instead, check out this fun bag from Moschino Cheap & Chic.  It retails for under $500 through Farfetch:


Stay tuned for more summer pics!

    I too love purses. I’m mostly a Chanel gal, but I have a few others I love. I’ve been meaning to add a Valentino, but haven’t taken the plunge yet.

    Also: As they say on the Purse Forum “I’m on a “ban” until husband tells me otherwise”. LOL
