The cute five-inch-wide Snak bag ($117) in tan is a dead ringer for a brown-paper lunch bag. It rolls at the top and closes with a hidden magnet. Carry it like a clutch.
The Picnic bag ($185) is eight inches wide; it comes in six colors including metallics, which make perfect evening clutches.
Marie Turnor?s Dinner bag ($250) is multipurpose; by itself, it?s a clutch, but it?s also a great way to keep our necessities organized inside a larger tote bag.
Nothing says ?I?m a true Angeleno? more than carrying a leather tote ($275) inspired by that parking-lot nightmare, beloved grocer Trader Joe?s.
Handbags are a Rorschach test for style, no? They say, ?I?m a vegan with high-fashion leanings? (Stella McCartney) or ?a Francophile classicist? (Chanel) or ?I was first in line at Target? (Phillip Lim).
After racing to acquire so many status bags only to become weary of them (or tired of planning an outfit around them), we?re embracing a new, anti-status inspiration: the Ikea bag.
Yep, that capacious blue carryall is our new tote--but recreated by Los Angeles-based designer Marie Turnor in water-resistant waxed cotton canvas.
Of course, that?s only for when we have to carry the kitchen sink. For our actual day-to-day purse, we?re choosing one of Turnor?s smaller, leather bags--red, black or buttery tan facsimiles of everything from a lunch sack to a Trader Joe?s shopping bag. Really.
You?ll see how cool it is to be anti-status--and to have a bag that?s beautiful and so simply designed, it goes with whatever you?re wearing.
