Whether you’re back at school, work or just in need of a treat, check out my favorite picks for this season’s must-have handbags: MARC JACOBS I love this bag from Marc Jacobs. You can easily wear it across your body (perfect for traveling or when you’re on the go!) and it’s got enough space for all the essentials. 3.1 PHILLIP LIM This is a stunning satchel from Phillip Lim, and what a great pop of color! It’s so versatile, and it even expands, so it can fit anything from a notepad to a computer! It’s a must have for fall that will transition beautifully through the seasons. ALEXANDER WANG Backpacks are in, and if you’re going to do it, do it right with this one from Alexander Wang. It’s hip but demure, and you can be on trend this fall without feeling too flashy. BALENCIAGA Balenciaga‘s Le Dix Cartable is a classic and beautiful handbag. I love the texture and the rich blue color. It’s a bag you can take to work with you that will transition perfectly to an evening out for cocktails with your friends! CHANEL If you’re looking for a smaller purse for your collection, look no further than this quilted Chanel beauty. It’s iconic and beautiful! And, if you need a new wallet to go with your new purse, check out these great ones: CHLOE This is a great padlock wallet from Chloe that will keep all the necessities in one place! CLARE V I love how adorable and colorful this Clare V pouch is. MARC BY MARC JACOBS Here’s a great soft, quilted and casual wallet from Marc by Marc Jacobs.
Kim was absolutely a dream to work with. I had to find a dress for a New York red carpet film premiere, and she came to my home with amazing options to get the look perfect. She nailed it, and was so kind and supportive! She really made me feel super confident for such an important event, and took the stress off of me for getting the look together!
It was so great to work with her, and I look forward to the next time :)
