New year, new bag...

We're now almost into the second month of 2013 and there are dozens of spectacular new styles to drool over this spring. Here are my top 3 picks so far for the new year.

1. Cole Haan Crosby Colorblock Tote Bag; $298 at Neimanmarcus.com. I love the fine craftsmanship of this bag and the ease of carrying it multiple ways. I like to fantasize about swinging it over my shoulder for a day of yachting, a picnic in Cape Cod or carrying it from day to night for mojitos on Lincoln Road. 

2. Prada Saffiano Bicolor Tote bag; $1,890 on Neimanmarcus.com. I love this bag because it reminds me of a cool, refreshing glacier or ice cream on a hot day. The color-blocking is fun yet done in a less trendy way. And once again, the multiple ways to carry the bag via top handles or shoulder strap make it multiple bags in one. This is a trend we're seeing now--most likely because women spending this much on a bag need to get their money's worth and be able to have a handbag that's multifunctional at the end of the day. 

3. Gucci Bright Bit Patent Leather Shoulder Bag in teal; $890 at Neimanmarcus.com. This practical and classic shoulder bag is a tribute to the bag Gucci always did well. It's clean, it's in a crisp color and it will be a collector's piece in decades to come for its structure and smooth lines. I love this bag for all the right reasons.
