My $62 Amazon score has been well-documented in these parts — but wanted to share that it is heavily inspired in design by Hermes’ mini Kelly, which will run you $26,000…you can see Sophia Richie Grange wearing her Hermes one below, and how I’d recreate the look myself.
I’m still in the market for a fall upgrade bag. There are so many spectacular options out right now — sharing all of my favorites, at all price points, below. I keep coming back to A.P.C.’s small Grace bag, which a few of you have reported over the years is an exceptional purchase — it’s not inexpensive, but rivals in quality some of the higher-end/prestige designers. I absolutely love the classic style and big brass buckle. A couple of great “look for less” options, too, including this Arket which reminds me a lot in shape of this Toteme, and then the several styles that are reminiscent of Celine’s iconic Teen bag, in descending order of price: the aforementioned APC, Demellier, and Sezane.
All my favorite handbags for the season ahead — you’ll notice a lot of hardware and and warm, rich earth tones.
