Bags are important to the outfit, no? Chicettes, you just cannot carry a bad bag. Got it? Large bags for daytime, small clutches for night. I personally love a roomy handbag for day because it will allow room for all of my "stuff" (extra shoes, anyone?).
Have you seen Sarah Jessica Parker roaming NYC lately? If you have, you've spotted her fav new bag - the Akris Ai bag. She carried it two days in a row last week (ZOMG...celebrities do that? I would because I *hate* changing out my handbags, ugh.)! It's the line's signature bag from the fall/winter collection - and it's super versatile and lightweight. Plus, complete cool points, ready? It can be converted to a tote or folded and clasped for the trapezoid shape, which subtly suggests the 'A' in Akris. Well, I give it an 'A' for amazing.
P.S. Get it and the rest of the Akris collection at the Akris boutiques in New York and Boston, as well as Bergdorf Goodman and select Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue store locations.
