I’ve been dishing about the handbags to achieve your ultimate knitwear fashion statement. Yesterday I shared with you two of my fave handbags (read here) to wear with winter knit”it”wear, and today I have two more!
3. Cambridge Classic Satchel.
Satchels are one style you can rely on to look great with just about anything. I love this Cambridge Classic Satchel which features a double buckle fastening with a simple shape. Great with knit work attire, this satchel adds a real sense of class and looks great in a deep and elegant navy colour.
Alternatively, those who want something a little more modern can find the Cambridge Classic Satchel in a more elaborately decorated design. This Harrods exclusive, plastered with everyone’s favourite Disney character Mickey Mouse, is a great alternative for those who are looking for a more adventurous look.
4. Aldgate Medium Grab Bag
Another offering from the style gurus at Radley, is one of my personal picks for a ton of reasons: the straight shape of the bag and firm handles give it a quaint and cutesy edge that screams Ugly Betty style while the soft material and delicate embellishment match any knit perfectly.
It is available in a number of different colours, but I absolutely love it in a deep garnet red since it exudes festive fashion with ease.

Yes, the twenty-seven year old has taken the role of accessories designer at the House of Missoni and launched the first collection of handbags, and they’re all named after her besties. Sweet.
Among her circle of socialite friends are the most stylish and photographed young gals in the world. Just to name a few — Eugenie Niarchos (psst, her brother dated Paris Hilton), Coco Brandolin, Tatiana Santo Domingo, Lauren Santo Domingo. Margherita’s crocodile, leather, and suede patchwork shoulder bag was inspired by Euginie and labeled it “Euge.”
These friendly purses are a bit pricey, but so unique: $1,275 to $3,140. Bonus!! For an extra $185, you can get a detachable Missoni pompoms.
I wonder what a ‘Leila’ bag would look like?
Samsara (meaning rebirth in Sanskrit) stays true to the Matt & Nat luxury we have grown to love with their pebbled textures and bold detailing. The twist with this new line is one dollar from every bag sold will be donated to the charity of your choice, all you need to do is vote.
Log on to http://www.sam-sara.ca/ and choose the bag that catches your eye and the charity that touches your heart.
Im not a huge LV fan, but even if you ask Shelley she will tell you I am huge ‘big bag’ fan and I don’t know what girl would not want to pack her life around in this white hot beauty!
This Louis Vuitton white-on-white leather with gold trim is classic. I love the shape, its perfect for the beach or a casual outfit or even a summer dress! Not only is the bag perfect for every women its the perfect accessory.
It’s from the Mahina collection and is also available in black. This bag, however, most of us can only dream of having because it $3,240.
It’s alot like the Gucci from the Hysteria collection shown here. I am a HUGE Gucci fan. These too bags share alot of the same qualities but the Gucci seems to be half the price $2,150. Even still… the LV is my pick.

They come and go, but metallic handbags are now hotter than ever. Metallic bags are very hot looks for 2008 Spring handbag trends.
Expect to see metallic bags in the shape of retro clutches and oversized bags. Colors will range from burnished gold to gunmetal grey. Colors like purple, blue, pink, and orange will also translate well into metallic looks.
One way that metallic bags will pop up is with subtle metallic leather trim on fabric handbags. You can also anticipate added details like metallic stitching and tassels to spice up handbags.
Another way that a metal shine and pizzazz is added to trendy handbags is through their hardware. Look for chains replacing handbag straps, decorative clasps, studs, and rings.
