Artfully pursed

During my standard visit to Anthropologie's website, I was a bit taken by and a lot intrigued by the handbags they're holding and the clutches they're clutching this season. So I'm FORCING myself to choose the top 3 that stood out. The rest of their fall collection you'll have to see for yourself. Just be sure to leave that credit card tucked away. :) First, how perfect are these stripes?! They're timeless, seasonless and just plain adorable! Both the clutch and the tote are fabulous! Win.


And the next items... beaded and bursting with color! Stunning, right? All of the intricate details are so delicate and impressive. Would you prefer a more versatile clutch or a statement piece??

And last but most curiously, these fascinate me. Made from vintage oil paintings, each of the bags in this collection has a still life image and an adorable skinny-belt handle. What do you think- is it better to leave art hanging on the walls or on your shoulder?


With that I want to give Anthropologie props for fearlessly incorporating different mediums of art with fashion. Each of these bags are SO different- Anthro never ceases to amaze & inspire!!
