Just in for spring — this gorgeous bright and happy Marni fringed handbag.

While I can't say I'm ready to jump on the fringed handbag train, this one tempts me. The color, buffalo leather and easy carry-all ability would fit into my daily routine nicely.

I love an easy bag. One that you want to carry at all times. Every day of the year.

With its understated lines and style, the Lockit by Louis Vuitton exudes feminine elegance. Supple leather, lightweight, practical and undeniably chic.

While backpacks have been a huge trend this spring, I have no desire to partake. However, if I were, it would only be with this one, by The Row.

The Row's luxe backpack boasts a clean design and is constructed from smooth leather. It has a generous interior that can accommodate a tablet, water bottle and other daily essentials.

You don't have to carry a backpack like you're in school. Carry it on one shoulder for ease, which would be my preference. However, I am not going to carry a backpack — this is just in case I were.

Over the last three weeks, I have been busy packing clients for international trips. While I wish I could've packed myself into their luggage, I have much satisfaction over their vacation wardrobe.

Among many essentials, there is one thing you cannot travel without — the foolproof carry-on bag. And for that, turn to London-born designer, Tiffany Lerman of Pattern, who has created a vibrant collection of tote bags, featuring exclusive textile designs. Pattern embodies a simple, casual and charming look that women of all ages want to carry everywhere — from the beaches of Hawaii to the streets of London. Smart design and smart price point.

A few of my favorites are the die-cut signature tote in soft pebble leather. The color choices are timeless and the design versatile. The Indy crossbody bag is made of the softest brushed cotton twill and is super roomy. This will become your go to bag for weekends, lacrosse games and the pool. And the clear vinyl bags are perfect for cosmetics and organizing small items, such as school supplies and beach products.

Check them out. You will be hooked on Pattern.

There is no handbag collection I am more excited about this season than the spring collection from Jérôme Dreyfuss. The textures, colors and styling are delicious. Every bag is special. And every bag has a unique name (I'm on an intimate level with Carlos, Jacques, Georges, Raoul and Yves). Trust me, it won't take long before you and your JD favorites are tight. 

Jérôme Dreyfuss is known for bold, quirky elegance ever since the debut of his first accessories collection in 2002. And can we talk about the shoes? Ooh la la!

If you don't know Jérôme Dreyfuss, please allow me to introduce you. Enjoy!
