Rebecca Minkoff M.A.C. Woven & Perforated Clutch

Oh, Rebecca Minkoff, what you do to me!

This is truly a handbag love story. But it doesn't turn out like Romeo & Juliet; it rather ends happily. I have seriously been lusting over this bag for months. There were multiple times I could have purchased it, but it just wasn't the right time. And an accessories addict has to budget themselves. For so long I thought that I had 'lost' the bag. It was no longer available on the Minkoff website, and I hadn't seen it in stores. As a veteran of handbag sales, I know that sometimes you get a second chance and sometimes it is gone as quickly as it was available. Despite my multiple chances, I just couldn't bring myself to buy it for financial reasons. Girl has to eat--am I right?

Luckily, the purse gods blessed me with a Gilt sale on Minkoff bags not too long ago, and I finally grabbed this fun cross-body nearly 50% off retail price. Sometimes it is truly good to wait!

I genuinely enjoy this bag since it's large enough to fit a book or iPad, and room for other small accouterments. M.A.C. Clutches are great for concerts, touring, and for the quick jaunts into town.

Woven Wonders of Spring/Summer 2013

Look at these beautiful bags! Some of the most iconic trends of this upcoming Spring 2013 season are jacquard and woven prints and textures.

The classic Fendi Peekaboo bag is reinvented in a woven style, available in orange and navy. Completely iconic, this slouchy bag is beautiful and fresh for the spring (but can definitely take you through the fall)! Definitely a head-turner in either color.

Louis Vuitton put out a bright, classy yet funky line of handbags and accessories. They revamped their Damier in a variety of bag styles--mostly smaller top-handle bags that are variations on the Speedy, some clutches, and small square luggage-style purses. The pieces in the cognac brown are my favorite; with the perfect outfit (this being my ultimate favorite), it is appears to be a delicate piece with a dose of practicality, too. It's certainly big enough for an iPad, magazines and your extra essentials.

Marc Jacobs additionally contributed to this spring trend with his Marc by Marc Jacobs Mini Marc'd & Check'd Printed Satchel. This particular style also comes in a larger size, if the Mini isn't your cup of tea. Other pieces in his SS13 collection are vaguely reminiscent of his work in his Marc Jacobs line and also in Louis Vuitton.

These are just a few examples of this skyrocketing spring trend. See any other designers invoking this trend? Post it below!
