When it comes to bags, I can't be seen in public with ones that nestle under my shoulder or hang from my wrist without feeling like a Barbie. Plus, its uncomfortable! Try as I might I can't get over my aversion to traditional handbags (which makes me feel guilty for having my mom buy me a Louis Vuitton Speedy 35). However, being that I am a girl, I feel compelled to carry everything I own with me at all times, which is why I LOVE messenger bags. They rest easily on your shoulders, they hold a lot, and they have an urban European feel to them. If the bags above are too masculine (which is not surprising considering they are from the men collections) check out the adorable one from MARC by Marc Jacobs (I just love Miss Marc!)
In order of appearance: J. Crew, Louis Vuitton, J. Crew, and MARC by Marc Jacobs.
If you haven't guessed I am a huge fan of menswear for women so it should be no surprise that I am fawning over oxfords this fall. Lucky for me, there is a great selection of them out there right now. I thinking of pairing them with a pair of dressy wool shorts and leggings or boyfriend jeans.
In order of appearance: YSL, Christian Louboutin, Christian Louboutin, J. Crew, ShopBop, Frye, and UrbanOutfitters.
