Fall handbag wish list

Fall wish list

This week has been delicious. We had our first rain and the thermometer finally fell below 80°. Finally, fall has come to the city of angels. Here is my fall wish list:

1) Dior in yellow
How delightful is this color? Yellow is the perfect pop against my normal fall wardrobe of blues, browns and oranges. The structured body and thick handles give this bag a personality. This is the Diorissimo Small Jaune Vif. Also comes in a gorgeous blue, striking violet, and classic black. Of course, Dior doesn't list a price. Guessing it's out of my price range, but hey, let's dream a little.

2) Miu Miu in blue
I'm drawn to the rounded body and gold hardware, but the real selling point here is the to-die-for robin's egg color. It screams to be picked up and carried on the elbow with a crisp white shirt and coral scarf. This lovely thing is, of course, sold out. At $1450, it's better that I'm not tempted. There's plenty more at Miu Miu to drool over.

3) Henri Bendel in black
How have I lived without knowing about Henri Bendel? I'm embarrassed. But I've corrected that error, and now it's my joy to bring this beautiful brand to you. This portfolio clutch is larger than you'd guess, it fits an iPad. That incredible texture is lamb leather, which gives me pause, but wow I bet it feels like a dream. The Debutante Portfolio Clutch is $278.

4) H&M in brown
At $24, this little treat makes me forget my Dior and Miu Miu woes. It's made of cotton and polyester, not the supple texture of leather but not the guilt either. Also comes in black and a crazy patent leopard if you want to go nuts.

5) Coach with tassel
Tassels and drawstrings are in this season. I don't usually love them, but the Coach Soft Legacy Drawstring Shoulder Bag ($598) is a beauty. Pebbled leather and extra large size make me want to throw this over my shoulder, grab my boots and go get a pumpkin spice latte.

A quick note: I went back and forth about the new Phillip Lim 3.1 for Target line. In the end, I left it out. I'm just not on board with the bags. I know, sacrilege. I'll keep watching and let you know if anything changes my mind.

What's on your fall wish list?
