You know you have to make them. Question is, how do you know you're making the right ones? In any event, wouldn't I be a fool to equate questions of life to those of lifestyle e.g., "Quilted Chanel or quilted Marc Jacobs?" But, aren't those always the simplest to make? =)

I've worn my balenciaga to the bone. Time to think about the next carry-all. I like big and I like pockets - hence, "carry-all."

While flipping through a mag, my eyes landed upon the "Legacy" straw tote ($498) by Coach. I've always been a bit weary towards Coach, especially since i'm not a big fan of monogram and I can't help but picture Cs when I think of the brand. But for the summer, the combination of straw and leather just works. I realize the quality of the picture is awful, but now you can see what i'm talking about!

Fans of the legacy line? Jessica Alba & Eva Longoria

For a more reasonable offering, check out:

You only have to fish $20 from your pockets for this H&M white clutch pictured left. On the right, please find Valentino (available at Neiman Marcus stores) for $980. Which one would you rather have?

I'm sure leather and straw are in right now, but I'm not feeling the bag.
