When in doubt, buy a bag...

I know I'm a bit partial to bags, but- I do think a gorgeous, well made bag is one of the best gifts to give this holiday season. My absolute favorite bag is one that also just won a Garden & Gun Made in the South Award. It's this scrumptiously dreamy, oversized, super soft black leather bag by SE Sherrick and Imogene + Willie in Nashville, $600. I'm not sure I've ever loved something so much...

There never is one great bag, however. There are many. These include, from left to right: Peter Nappi Ennio Tote, $420. J Stark Franklin Bag, $450; Very Fine South + Ashley Woodson Bailey Pink Zip Clutch, $350;  Emil Erwin Jane Clutch, $295; Bexar Goods New Porter Satchel, $680; Andover Trask Madison Tote, $225; Ceri Hoover Platinum Pintuck Clutch, $195; Moore & Giles Urban Satchel, $775. 

The Makr Post Bag, $180 and Makr Fold Weekender, $165. Happy bag shopping...
