Great handbags are also part of the Coco Chanel commandments of a workwear wardrobe.

1920s ladies in Coco's day may not have needed a tote to carry their laptops, but they knew enough to invest in a small clutch to carry their powder compact, hanky and lippy that would complement and enhance their entire outfit, not wreck it with garish design or color.

Couture TriniStyle Oh goodness, grandma always carried around a huge pocketbook.

It makes her look so old!

Definitely, avoid carrying around a handbag the size of a suitcase for as long as you can.

Unless it's a fabulous Louis Vuitton or an equally stylish designer shopper bag.

Name That Bag: Paris Hilton

Somebody’s stepping up her style game!

Paris Hilton finally ditched the trashy glam handbags and was seen with this much improved and oh so ladylike quilted white clutch.

It looks totally adorable with her blue dress (which isn’t so ladylike, but hey, one step at a time).

Combined with the long gold necklace and white sunglasses, this is a fabulous look for spring.

Keep it up, Paris!

Jessica Alba strolling the streets of LA with the Anya Hindmarch Neeson Plaited Leather shoulder hobo in the fabulous color bronze.

The Neeson in bronze is sold out right now, but if you really love the color, preferably over the black then check out the Sydney - go!

The Neeson is not my favorite.

I like the color of Jessica Alba's bag (bronze), but not the shape.

I would rather get the Sydney.

Classic Bags from Bown Designs

I'll be the first to admit I have made some big handbag mistakes in my time.

In all the years I have been buying handbags I have never come across any that have been so well thought out as these from Bown Designs.

Judy Bown is the founder and designer of this fabulous range of accessories.

The work that she puts into just researching is admirable.

I love this tote bag and the icing on the cake is that it comes in a colour called Rhubarb that is just delicious.

The packaging is even beautiful.

These are bags with class that will last forever.


Sportsgirl's Teal Tapestry Clutch Bag


You thought you'd escaped teal, didn't you!

Thought we'd had enough of featuring such a fabulous shade of greeny blue!

Tough luck, I'm afraid, because it's not going anywhere soon!

This beautiful over-sized tapestry clutch from Sportsgirl Australia is stunning, and even more so in person (I'm hugging mine tight, as I type this!).

Big enough to make a statement, and perfect for Winter or Spring, it's a teeny $34.95AUD.

Accessories for Your Handbag - Handbag Hooks

Many indie companies have made attempts to market this relatively good idea - handbag hooks, for those ladies who deign not to dump their handbags upon a dirty floor.

But...I'm having trouble finding one that isn't too tool-like or frumpy looking!

The most stylish hook I've found is the D&D handbag hook but its currently out of stock at Bluefly.
