Yves Saint Laurent - Downtown Bag

Jessica is not only dating Justin Timberlake aka Mr. Sexy Back, she is also bringing sexy back to the masses with her gorgeous YSL Downtown tote. I never cared much for white bags as they tend to get dirty really quickly, and I dont have the purse strings of a mogul. Therefore, I stick to colors I can manage.

We all know gray is huge this fall and every designer has at least one bag or accessory out there that is in this popular fall shade. The YSL Downtown bag in gray is exactly what caught my attention while surfing

Yes, the price tag of $1495 is hefty; but unlike the regular downtown, this one is in pebbled patent Grain de Riz leather, meaning it lasts longer and does better against stains and normal wear. I can only get 3 bags this season, and this one is definitely in contention for a spot in my heart. What do you think? Should I get it?

Tod's Softy Pochette, Ink Blue

Tod's Softy Pochette in Ink Blue caught my attention while I was going over the items for sale at Eluxury. I thought Tod's hit a home run with the Softy collection last fall. This Pochette is made of smooth grain leather and is buttery soft to the touch. The silver hardware gives it that extra kick. I am usually not a huge fan of anything gathered but the gathered sides make the Pochette look stylish and hip. I am watching this closing on Eluxury. It is now $525. Maybe when it does to the 400s, I will make my move. Considering that the version Rachel Bilson was toting costs around $4,000, this seems like a steal. Will you buy it? Check it out at Eluxury.

ChloƩ Python Bay Bag

Chloe had a few very successful seasons (or is it years?) riding on the waves of everything Paddington. I was one of those Paddingtonatic, who vowed to sell her soul to the devil in exchange for a hard to get color. My two Paddies, Silver and Red, are currently resting comfortably in their dust bags and I believe they are classics that will always be in style.

The same can be said of the Bay bag. I love everything about the Bay bag: the interior space, zipped compartments, comfortable handles, and durable construction. This is a bag that is perfect for a New York city girl like myself! I was drooling when I saw this on Net-a-Porter. But at $4,000, it is more than mission impossible since I am no longer on my parents' payroll. The luxurious skin finish can dress up any outfit!

Jimmy Choo Saba Hobo

Jimmy Choo's Saba Hobo features elegant gold hardware rings and bracelets that are part of the bag. When I saw this picture in Neiman Marcus' thebook, my heart literally stopped beating. What a stunner!

This is the perfect accessory for fall! I have not seen this exact particular bag in person but similar exotic skin bags for the collection are buttery soft yet sturdy at the same time. I love the convenience of the magnetic snap closure and the 10" shoulder strap drop makes it easy to carry.

For this particular bag, check with your local Jimmy Choo store. This multicolor Karung skin bag will set you back a whopping $3,395, or you can get the less expensive version (Medium Saba Nappa Hobo) at Saks online for $2,450.

CC Skye Nikki Clutch

Count on Paris Hilton to own all the "IT" bags. I have had my eyes on CC Skye clutch, Nikki, for a while now and finally ordered it last week!

I can see why CC Skye bags and accessories are such huge hit with young celebrities. The hardware detail on the bags parallel its famed bracelets to make any plain old clutch pop from a mile away!

I love the color, hardware, size, and durability of this clutch! I sense it will be my loyal companion for years to come! It fits my ipod, sidekick, compact, travel-size perfume, keys, mini wallet, lip gloss, eyeliner, and mascara - with some space left to spare!

This is a clutch that will spice up any wardrobe, at $310, it is not a bad buy: CC Skye Nikkie Clutch.

I was at the warehouse sale 3 years ago while visiting a friend in LA. The selections are insane and the lines are outrageous! So be prepared to get there early and dress for the occasion. Most seasoned Barneys warehouse sale patrons go in leggings and tank top as time is of the essence; therefore, you do not want to waste time with trying on stuff with bulky outfit. Also, most people leave their manners at home =) Get ready for a fight over that hot Prada bag.

Leave a comment and share your loot!

Deere Colhoun Sienna Satchel

Lindsay Colhoun founded Deere Colhoun in search of the perfect bag for day wear, yet reasonably priced. Judging from how style makers (Kristin Cavallari) have responded to the Sienna Satchel, Deere Colhoun is set to make its mark on the handbags scene. The always stylish Rachel Bilson was sported around town in her favorite Deere Colhoun's Sienna Satchel and soon the Sienna was a fixture in all major gossip magazines! That is the power of celebrities endorsement (Kate Hudson, see below), and especially one like Ms. Bilson.

The Large Sienna Satchel is perfect for every day use with multiple pockets for all your electronic gadgets, makeups, sunscreens, notebook, and designer sunglasses. This bag is so spacious it is perfect for students in school! Hey, school is boring enough, why blend in when you can stand out with this bag.

Check it out at Singer22, $789: Sienna Satchel.
