Ready, set, shop! It’s that magical time of year – when the holidays warm our hearts, and the sales light my fire. But where to begin?! With markdowns hitting all the major retailers, from Net-a-Porter to Barneys to ShopBop, scoring bargains on the best snob bags can be as overwhelming as it is invigorating.
I’ve narrowed it down to the cream of the crop. Whether you wisely invest in awesome Alaïa (big-time leopard-print ($3,797.50 from $5,425) or light and airy leather ( $1,310 from $2,620)?) or snag Marc by Marc Jacobs ($156 from $260) for easy dressing up; spring for shimmering python by Michael Kors or sparkly sequined Miu Miu ($945 from $1,350–I’ve been envious of Kelly’s ever since she got it, now I can justify one for myself!); exotic-velvet Jimmy Choo ($997.50 from $1,995) or of-the-moment Jas MB ($329 from $545), you can’t lose. Shop now or hold your peace until next season!
