This is by far the most understated and minimalist bag that I have ever seen. There is no hardware, there is no pocket, there are no bells and whistles, nothing. This bag only has the absolutely necessary to be called a bag. I’m sure this bag will look like a lump of suede when empty. I absolutely love this. You might think I’m crazy, but sometimes I need to take a break from all the crazy designs and colors and just be subtle. You really can not go anymore subtle than this. Even the color of this bag is very subdued: light grey. When I look at this bag, I think about the word “zen”. Don’t you agree?
You can buy this from Shopbop for $795. Now, as much as I like this bag, I probably won’t spend that much for this minimalistic looking bag. However, I would definitely consider it if it ever goes on sale. This bag measures a generous 20″H x 19″L x 7″D, with 9″ strap drop.
Below you can see Kate Bosworth wearing this bag. I think the bag looks pretty huge against her small frame.

Katie Holmes was recently spotted with her Valextra Slim Shopper, which is made of grained leather with open pockets and rolled leather handles. The bag measures 14″ x 15″ x 4″, available in 4 colors: white, green, red and blue.
I like how simple this bag is. It does not scream “look at me” while at the same time displaying luxury. Only a secure woman that does not need to prove anything would carry something without any logo or monogram.
Buy it from Barneys for $2,500
I just love bright colored bags, they totally pop against your neutral outfit. This bag is pretty simple; it’s just a rectangular bag with double braided shoulder straps and some simple hardware. This bag has a modern and clean look. It is very suitable for ladies who do not want to look too girly but still like to play with colors.
I often find my self attracted to shiny hardware on bags. I think they make bags look more luxurious. However, I always complain when bags are heavy. In the perfect world, handbags with luxurious hardware are light. I don’t think this particular bag is super heavy, nothing will be as heavy as the Chloe Paddington (3 lbs) with the giant lock.
I am now still at the age where I sometimes willing to sacrifice comfort for looks. I’m wondering at what age will I stop doing that?

For those of you who are still wondering about Susan Mayer’s bag in the Desperate Housewives season finale, here is the YouTube video for your convenience. You can clearly see the Michael Kors newbury bag on the video.
I just created an account on the Gustto website and received $50 credit. On top of that, right now they are offering an extra 10% off on top of the sale price. One of the bags that they have on sale right now is the Gustto Brescia. This bag was seen on Eva Longoria.
Gustto Brescia descriptions:
Ultra-soft suede tote with bottom horizontal zigzag pattern, open top, handles with gold hardware, and detachable shoulder strap.
Inside zip pocket, open pocket, cell phone pocket.

FYI, the sale price is $423.50 and it will only appear if you already registered and logged in the Gustto website. If you are not registered, the price will show as $605.
Now, if you sign up and use the $50 credit plus the 10% off discount, your final price would be $331.15 and on top of that they are also having free shipping. That’s what I call a good deal!
Last night, when I was watching the Desperate Housewives season finale, I spotted this bag on Susan Mayer, played by Teri Hatcher. I recognized this bag instantly because of the unique woven leather combination. This bag is woven with two kinds of leather, matte and patent. (It reminds me of the Bottega Venetta Hobo, however, the Bottega Hobo has three kinds of leather woven together, matte, patent and suede and it is fabulous). The woven leather combination is pretty much the main show of the bag because the rest of it is very ordinary.
I had seen this bag around for a while, but never had the urge to blog about it, until I saw it on Desperate Housewives. Since it showed up on that show, I figured that bag-loving viewers would like to know what that bag was.
I’ve searched for this bag online however I couldn’t find any online retailer that still carried it, since it had been around for sometime. I did find other colors, such as tan, mocha,white and orange. However, they’re not nearly as beautiful as black and they are not made of combination leather.
