There are certain items I purchase that I just completely fall in love with forever. Take my black satchel, for instance. I bought it just after I had baby C. (um, because I had to shop and still couldn’t fit in any of my normal clothes, ugh), and I’ve been carrying ever since (that’s six months!). I’m sure I’ll eventually move on to something else beloved to dangle on my arm, but for now this is it. I love it because it has a long strap for my shoulder (even though I rarely use this feature) as well as two straps that I can grip, or drape over my shoulder for a shorter length. It’s classic black (which means it goes with everything – even brown, you old-school fashionistas), and the gold studs make it feel current (and mirror Kourtney Kardashian’s mega-expensive $1700 Balenciaga Giant City Bag – by the way, a million celebs carry this bag from Vanessa Hudgens to Dakota Fanning and Ashley Tisdale). It’s super-roomy to tote everything I need, and I especially love the side pockets for easy access (lipstick, iPhone and the like). Oh yeah, and mine was only $90 (Google Nila Anthony – cute bags (!) and the green clutch was featured on Confessions of a Shopaholic)!
