supercuteminisWhile scale-to-frame plays a big role in selecting a handbag, you can throw that rule out the window when it comes to the little guys.

You know, the clutch. The multi-tasking small shoulder bag. How cute are these?

Thanks to Theyskens' Theory, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Charlotte Olympia (left to right), we have some bright options for spring. Ones that are sure to put a smile on our faces!
When it's this cold outside, you need a little warmth by your side ... in the form of Celine, of course. This shearling handbag not only makes me smile, but it makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. The fact that it's a Celine tops it all. I can just imagine snuggling up to ... er ... carrying this bag on the chilliest of days. Purrrrrfect!

Zoey, how fortunate I am to have met you.

You are not only easy on the eyes, but you support me in so many ways, every single day of the week. You listen to my madness and never judge. You anticipate my every move. And best yet, you make me look good.

While Zoey could be my best friend, she is also my favorite handbag for fall. My Zoey in stone is a can't-live-without bag. My whole life fits in it and then some. The cleverest of them all — the front pouch, or Roo ... as in kangaroo pouch. The perfect size to fit all of my essentials — phone, keys and favorite lipstick.

Zoey's a special bag. So special, she appeared in a few of my photo shoots.

chloess11handbagsSpring is far from here. But you can bet I've already picked out my spring handbag!

No, I don't buy a handbag for each season. In fact, I may not even buy a new handbag each year. It's a random thing for me.

I didn't fall in love with any handbags for FW10, though I came close with this Dior bag. However, it's all over for spring.

Thank you, Chloe.

I have always loved Chloe handbags. The construction is impeccable. And this spring, with minimalism on the rise, these two styles fit the bill perfectly. I want them both — the duffel for everyday life and the wristlet for quick errand running or evenings out.

This is love!
Runway isn't always an illusion. There are pieces, from time to time, that you can get your hands on. Such as the Dior Libertine. Yummy draped leather in petal with aged 'C.D.' letters that were borrowed from a belt created by Christian Dior in 1950. Timeless perfection!
