If you've been doing your homework, you should know that lady-like, structured bags are in this Spring.
When I think of a structured bag, I think of a trapazoid-ish shaped bag, that is made out of some sort of leather, designed to be carried in the hand, and worn by a woman wearing a pill box hat and gloves.
To me, structured bags, while attractive, have a sort of precious quality that doesn't blend well with the real world.
What I love about the bag that you see here, called the Glazed Jet Setter Jr. Tote by Foley + Corinna, is that it plays on the idea of a structured bag...but still manages to look loose and broken in.
It's a large bag at 15"H x 15"L , so you can pack it with everything from a magazine to your makeup bag...and still have room for more. Pockets inside and out allow you to keep it organized. The strap has a generous 7 " drop, so you can carry it in your hand or over your shoulder comfortably.
I love the color of the bag, a great weathered grey they call river stone, as well. It's a color that's great for now, but can also transition into the warmer seasons. The strap and buckle detail (front and back) provide a nice finish.
The real treat, is that this bag sells for $528. A great price for a bag that you can get a lot of wear out of. Click on over to www.shopbop.com to purchase.
