Fall is knocking at our doorsteps folks. It is already time to showcase the Fall/Winter 2011-2012 items that will make us go dig in our savings. Yes I know, Summer is not over yet, but as you know, Fashion is a fast industry and stores are already merchandising their new offerings for the up-coming season.

And since I am in a very "handbag" mood these past few weeks, I decided to showcase bags as my first complete Fall segment. As my bank account can attest, bags have been the majority of my purchases these past few months. I have purchased at least 5 new men handbags recently, from shoppers to duffle and everything else in between. It is safe to say that handbags have become my new addiction-my poor bank account! But with choices like the ones you will see above, how can you resist really?

Here are my choices for Bags.Of.The.Day:


Who: Tory Burch
What: 'Bond' plaid Shoulder Bag
Why: The new "it" shape in womenswear for bags is certainly the boxy shape. What I love about this Tory Burch bag is its play with the season's of-the-moment print, plaid and its derivation; an interesting Mix of plaid and herringbone, with leather trimming that complete the mix. Also love the soft colors used for colorblocking and detailing that do not over-power this already charged bag. Yet it all seem to work well together. A perfect fall bag for everyday use. Swoon ladies!
How Much: $465 Us (


Who: Dolce & Gabbana
What: Tartan and Calfskin shopper
Why: The new trendy shape for men these past few seasons is the shopper bag. Here, Dolce & Gabbana add a fun twist by using a mix of fabric, calfskin and wool, and a classic red tartan pattern to jazz up the usually simple shape. I love the touch of red, and the detailing is subdued for the usually out there Dolce Gabbana fashion (only the classic Dolce & Gabbana gold hardware is used here). Great all round bag for the city-modern man. Love it!
How Much: $750 Cdn (

Would you wear/buy these bags?



  1. Thank you for yet another amazing post, I personally try not to buy so much trending bags, don't know why, though I got the Tory Burch bag last week but in the Khaki/mustard color. I thought is more universal! than the plaid one ..maybe I should start buying trendy bags bc I loved the plaid and the color combo screams fall:) have a great week, loved your post like always

  2. And I love reading your comments, as always! Keep them coming! and thanks for the support! :)
