Fall fashion is always exciting to me, but this year I’m quite excited about the handbags.  This Fall we’re seeing; vintage inspired ladylike bags, oversized clutches, jewel tones and some interesting graphics.

Below are some of my top Fall 2011 handbag picks.

Small and Structured

The Row Flap Bag – this bag will cost you a very pretty penny, but it will definitely add a touch of class to all of your Fall looks.

Graphic Design

Proenza Schouler Jacquard Blanket book bag – I love the simple leather straps and the bright graphic prints of the Fall 2011 PS bags.  This bag is sure to liven up any of your drab Winter outfits.

Practical Shopper

Marc by Marc Jacobs Helmut Shopper – ditch your basic canvas tote and carry your important papers (or magazines) in style this Fall!  This is the perfect bag for heading to the office.

Satchel of the Season

3.1 Philip Lim Pashli Satchel – this is my favorite bag this Fall.  With it’s classic shape, gemstone color and zipper details, this is the perfect “everyday” bag.

Shoulder Sling


Alexander Wang Marion Sling – this is a great vintage inspired bag that can be carried as a clutch or worn across the body – perfect for those upcoming Holiday parties! 

Chicest of them All

Miu Miu Oversized Nappa Clutch – this oversized clutch is a must-have for Fall.  This is the only accessory you’ll need for a sexy, yet chic look.
