Across the body, on top of the world. Sleek chic cross body bags came in hot last summer, and we love that they’re sticking around this season, too! Unlike the floppy hippy look of 2014, this summer is all about structure. We love these slim strappy leather cross body bags from England’s Modalu.  Available in blush, sky blue, lemon yellow and black, these bags offer streamlined styling to carry summer essentials.  What used to be reserved for horseback riding (we owe it all to the saddlebag) is now the perfect purse for touristy travel and Chicagoland’s many festivals. Hello Lollapalooza!



Go Glam for evening. Channel your inner Great Gatsby and rock a vintage retro look for summer nights.  These elegant evening bags are created from metallic mesh, magnetic closures, and Swarovski Crystals by a California based husband and wife design team.  The look instantly adds a regal look to any dress or gown.  As a bonus, most styles include a table hook for restaurant or banquet seating, allowing for safe keeping and hands free conversation (plus, no setting your gorgeous bag on the floor!).  Let the outdoor dining and wedding season commence!  You’ll be ready with this absolutely gorgeous evening bag.







The larger, the leather. To the woman who believes there’s no such thing a purse TOO big, you’re in luck. Bucket bags, large totes, and shapely hobo bags are definitely on trend for summer. Look for understated leathers with metallic detailing – like studs or chains – for a pop of rock ‘n roll.  Be sure to stop-by the Elmhurst City Centre or Deer Park Town Center store to see the new “Ravinia Bag” collection.  Available in patriotic red, white, or blue, these perforated vegan leather bags go from a snapped-up geometric shaped carry-all with removable insert for essentials, to an un-snapped large tote perfect for a day at the beach or an evening performance at Ravinia.  We’re sure you will go GaGa over them!







Graphic girl. One of this year’s most fun and flirty trends is oh so curvacious! Shapely clutches are small but mighty. These mini hand bags are big on style with bold colors, distinctive shapes and eye popping patterns. On a whimsical note, view Peach Carr’s latest handbag line, which features cartoons from the New Yorker. And speaking of color, Badgley Mischka’s asymmetrical clutch in candy apple red is sure to garner stop and stare attention!

This summer, change out your usual tote for a stylish silhouette that’s sure to sizzle. Browse our online catalog for more accessory inspiration!
