Best It Handbags of All Time. Part 2

It Bags- Mulberrry Bayswater

Colorblocking: How to Mix and Match in Style

(click to enlarge!) When the Fall 2011 runway shows hit NY, London and Paris last spring, it was clear that designers had color on the brain.

The elongated diamond pattern and oversized turn lock is just unusual enough to turn heads, but the oversized silhouette and rich shade of brown make it perfect for every day use. Here are a couple of our picks for non-Chanel quilted bags, or click to…
