On Trend: Striped Bags

I don’t think I’m surprising anyone when I say that I have a weakness for good handbags – so much so that I may or may not have been told that if I bring home another bag, we’re going to have to move to a bigger house. Totes, satchels, crossbodies, clutches…I love ’em all!

So of course, this means that every time a new trend hits handbags, I need to check it out – purely for educational purposes of course! Just in case you’ve been MIA lately, stripes are everything this season. In addition to the usual striped dresses, shirts and skirts, stripes are popping up on handbags, shoes, scarves, sunglasses…
