Top handle bag
This winter is real cold. An oversized sweater is always a necessity, but that doesn’t mean it automatically has to be boring and bland. Add a pop of color like pale winter blue sweater with pearl embellished shoulders for a feminine touch. Paired with black cigarette pants, closed toe printed heels, and delicate gold rings, all you’re missing to complete this winter ensemble is a great top handle bag.

Reptile Bags or Snakeskin Bags
Exotic handbags, especially those made of alligator or crocodile, are designer bags taken to their logical extremes, so they seemed to fit the bill. Celebrities are some of the only people in the world actually capable of purchasing one of these bags, which often soar well into the mid-five figures (and, in one case, the sixes), and that’s good, because these aren’t the kinds of bags that brands give out for free. Of the hundreds of thousands of dollars of bags you see below, you can bet that almost all of them were purchased instead of gifted.

Why we need big bags? If you are a parent, then you will know. From Sarah Jessica Parker to Angelina Jolie, we were incredibly impressed by how these moms manage to keep it all together under intense paparazzi attention. Of course, being rich and famous probably helps in that pursuit.

The design showed several plain leather versions of the bag, but the real stars of the concept were the heavily embellished, often exotic versions that most models carried. Some of the bags sported sequined pill bottles and Mickey Mouses, among other things, while others were more traditionally adorned. This kind of bag is really fun.
