Missoni Emerald Green Purse, Handbag of the Day
Ever since Louis Vuitton's Fall 2010 show, I've become enamored with ladylike purses. They exude an elegance and sophistication that pays homage to the 1950s while maintaining a timeless and stylish appeal. Rightly so, they're the perfect complement to waist-cinching, voluminous skirts and dresses but they also add a feminine and understated sexiness to jeans, high heeled boots and a slim fitting sweater.
The Missoni Purse ($1136) is just beautiful. With a base of glowing emerald green and sprinkles of black and white, the color palette draws you in. The shoulder strap is a combination of metal and tortoise - which makes for an eye catching detail. My favorite part of Missoni's bag is the interior caramel leather - it's a great color choice against green. And to complete the look there is a turn lock tortoise closure that is surrounded by oval shaped accents.
