The Must Have Summer Handbag of 2009

By |   May - 21 - 2009

Okay, let’s talk handbags. Even though we love to hate them, we still let vapid empty headed celebrities dictate our style trends, so let’s take a look at what the stars are carrying and where we can find cheap imitations.

Jessica Alba Ferragamo Handbag

Here is one of the big trends and I mean BIG. Jessica Alba totes a huge Salvatore Ferragamo bag actually touts two of the trends this season, big and colored leather. One has to wonder which is heavier, daughter Honor or the bag. If you want to emulate this style for less, try the Xhilaration Oversized Slouchy Hobo bag in apple green from Target. Much cheaper, just as much space, and as equally eye catching this bag is a great deal.

The animal skin handbag is also a huge trend among the glittery set and this purse is a great example of both trends. If you want to get the colored reptile skin look, this azure snakeskin Hype Jordan Fold-Over Clutch from JC Penney is a way to hit both trends without breaking the bank.

Rihanna Devi Kroell Handbag

Rihanna hits the town in a get-noticed natural python bag by Devi Kroell handbag. This natural reptile skin look is a trend that will probably stick around a bit longer than the colored bags and can be found in the oversized  Python/Canvas Trapunto Shoulder Bag or a cute Python Envelope Clutch, both from Ann Taylor. 

So the moral of the story is, buy a big bag and a little bag, buy a colored bag and a natural bag and look for something that is made of reptile skin or an animal skin replica.
