While I do own quite the number of shoes (blush), I’m not one who hoards handbags like some of you (ahem). With handbags, I love to think of quality, not quantity as my motto. (Whereas with shoes, it’s just gimme, gimme, gimme. Kidding!! Sorta…) Let me say, I LOVE IIIBeCA by Joy Gryson (who is lovely, by the way) and the color and bag Jessica Alba’s recently been carrying…well lack of color…is absolute perfection. It’s the most perfect piece of artwork, and I’d proudly display it on my shoulder and at home on my shelf.
It’s called the “Duane Street” messenger and for us mamas it’s just about the perfect everyday bag to carry with the little ones (too big and you’re lugging too much; too small and there’s nowhere to put anything). The structure and class of this bag is just beyond…it screams I know fashion. Not to mention, you can forget ever hassling with “the handbag switch” because this stunner goes with everything. Jessica Alba wore hers in Beverly Hills last weekend while having lunch with her daughter Haven (who is adorable!!). You can shop for your very own at www.byjoygryson.com.
P.S. For every bag purchased, three percent of the proceeds goes to three charities very dear to the designer: Memorial Sloan-Kettering, the 9/11 Memorial Fund and Family Focus Adoption Center.
