Urban Outfitters bag? Soooo MJ
This fall, quilted bags continue their reign as one of the season's best accessories, updated in sleek patent leather. Marc Jacobs and Chanel, as well as several other designers, continue to make quilted bags that are coveted by the fashion set. But at prices upwards of $1000, they can be hard to get your hands on. It was with a sigh of relief that I found this adorable, yet sophisticated, quilted tote at Urban Outfitters' website for $38. It comes in four shades: ivory flat, periwinkle blue, potent grey, and patent berry; my favorites being the patents (grey and berry). The colors are a little deceiving (my berry one turned out to be more purple), but I like it all the same. And if tote bags aren't for you, check out the quilted barrel bag ($48) or the Gabrielle quilted clutch ($18).
