I am truly terrible at picking out handbags. I do okay during the summer, when light fabrics and bright colors are acceptable, but as soon as the winter months roll in I freeze up. I'm not a huge fan of leather (bags or jackets), which makes things even more difficult. I am actually still toting around the blue & white flowered cotton bag I bought in April. See? Horrid. Luckily, this beauty, by Kate Spade, speaks my language perfectly.
