Fall 2013 Handbag Picks

Labor Day weekend is over and it’s time to start thinking about Fall fashion.  My kids are going back to school this week and my focus has been on their back to school clothes and shoes.  The fashion shows are just around the corner and it’s time to make some Fall fashion purchases!  Here are a few favorite new handbags for Fall 2013!


The Skull Padlock Zip-Around Tote Bag in Dark Gray from Alexander McQueen is neutral and will blend nicely with a Fall wardrobe.  It will look great with navys and black!  The Skull padlock ornament is in line with the punk trend we are seeing.  It’s a soft buttery leather with piped trim.  It has nice sized shoulder straps for busy moms on the go.  Inside it has a zip pocket and two open pockets.  It is also light – weighing in at just 3 lbs!  When running around and trying to look chic, you don’t want a sore shoulder from a weighty bag!  Buy it here for $1545!   It comes in other colors, we also like it in navy!



ValentinoStudI love the rich light blue vitello leather on this Valentino Rockstud Medium Tote Bag.  It has Valentino’s signature rock studs, a flip lock for easy closure and also has a shoulder strap with a nice 8″ drop.  This design by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli is currently only available for preorder with a ship date of no later than November 7th.  Order now!  Buy it at Bergdorf!


REedKrakoff2Reed Krakoff has some fun bags out this season in his signature Boxer Tote.  The top one is the Navy/Cobalt and retails for $1290 (Buy it here) and the second one is the same bag in the Python/Leather and retails for $4990. (Buy it here)

I also like the Gucci Bit Leather Shoulder Bag from Net-a-Porter.  It’s a great choice for every day wear.  The neutral color and signature Gucci horse bit are a nod to the brand’s equestrian heritage.  Buy it for $1150

The burgundy brown Jody handbag by Salvatore Ferragamo is perfect for Fall!  The rich calfskin leather shoulder bag features the signature gold enamel Ferragamo plate with lock closure and leather key holder.  It’s available at Sak’s Fifth Avenue for $1650.  Buy it here!  These are just a few favorites!  Stay tuned for clutches and travel bags!
