Animal-Friendly Handbags: Win One!

One of the greatest (and easiest) ways to update your wardrobe during transitional seasons is with an attention-grabbing new animal/earth-friendly handbag. The right bag can instantly change your look with a dash of spring color or the latest spring style. And, when the forecast is STILL calling for snow, it can tide you over until such time as you can debut your new spring fashions.

amykathryn Handbags “Juniper”

Pink, Hillary Duff and Selma Blair all know the joy of owning a bag from amykathryn and now so can you! What makes these bags attract the glitterati? Perhaps it’s the combination of custom printed fabrics with animal-friendly faux leather. Maybe it’s the names that come straight out of the garden. Or maybe it’s just because they are so darn cute! We picked the Juniper oversized clutch with detachable wristlet band. Available in two colors. www.amykathryn.com.

Really loved the khaki bag!! Neatest one I have seen in a long time! Also loved the shopping bag- it's one thing we all need to have tucked away in the car for little shopping trips that don't require a lot of bags to get your stuff home!!

Oh my goodness! What gorgeous bags! That hot Magenta one would suit me right down to the ground, and the Khaki Canvas bag - so durable, but so pretty! And that Unique Rhumba - I love it, but I also love the Knotty (silk) Scraps Evening Bags - they're delightful and so novel! I'd feel so proud carrying that very smart Hobo bag, but wait....the Lucky Sac Scarf Pocket bag is the most wonderful of all!!!! So pretty, so innovative - I'd be the envy of all my girlfriends and I can assure you, they'd all want one!!!!
