7 Quirky Purses

January 24, 2018

These cold, rainy days can be dreadfully dull. And that’s precisely why we need to stay amused in every way possible—including our accessory choices. Below, find seven purses to keep you smiling til spring. —Rachel Johnston


wing it. With a nod to the lounger that started the pool-floaty frenzy, Kate Spade stays classic with her Checking In 3D Swan Pool Float Bag ($494). This leather crossbody charms with a gold turnlock closure and aqua lining.


golden ticket. Kick your picnics up a notch with the Metallic Basket ($90) by Zara. The minaudière (translation: small, jewelry-like bag) may not carry many snacks, but it’s sure to draw all the right attention.


eye spy. Canadian-designed, vegan leather and adorably lash-adorned, Poppy and Peonies‘ Date Night Clutch ($39) gets our wink of approval. Bonus: the padded pink pocket is perfect iPad Mini-size.


rally. Nothing says good times like pom-poms! Available in black or platinum, the Little Big Shot ($495) by Marc Jacobs is more low-key but still provides a splash of personality.


sealed with a kiss. Painted by hand on vegetable-tanned leather and crafted in America, the Panama Lip Clutch ($248 US at Anthropologie) by Ann Howell Bullard was inspired by the quirkiest of the quirky: Andy Warhol. How could you not feel happy with this in hand?


fruitful. Piña Colada, coming right up! The ’90s-inspired Kailadia ($35) by Call It Spring features a chain strap, tiny cutouts and a sparkly top. We say yes to fresh and flirty.


minnie me. Coach has a new special-edition collection called, Disney x Coach, inspired by the one and only Minnie Mouse. It includes 19 pieces that span handbags, small leather goods, ready-to-wear and speciality items. Our fave? This Kisslock Bag ($530) with Minnie Mouse ears, which pays tribute to Miss Mouse’s receiving the 2,627th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
