Kate Spade Siena Medium Serena, Handbag of the Day
Maybe it is a little bit of practicality lurking behind the love of fancy handbags, but even when I know how many really fantastic handbags there are for this season - and in general - it's nice to have at least one classic, everyday shoulderbag. Kate Spade's Siena Medium Serena fits the bill nicely, with classic lines, comfortable shoulder strap and a structured, reinforced bottom that will hold up well to everyday use without banging the contents of the bag around. There are also several interior pockets that will help keep you organized and provide room for things you need on a daily basis, like cell phones, pdas, pens and perhaps even reading glasses. The bag is made of waxed, natural cowhide and features a colorful nylon web detail, with a cotton twill lining and gold hardware. Price: $485.
