Best Bet: Kate Spade Alice Street Adriana Satchel

Kate Spade Alice Street Adriana Satchel

I’m always on the lookout for bags that look more expensive than they are. That can be a hard thing to pull off, with ever-rising leather prices and executive boards that expect high margin percentages, so when it happens, it makes my day. If you’re looking for a solid work bag that looks professional and sophisticated without a price tag higher than your monthly rent, look no further than the Kate Spade Alice Street Adriana Satchel.

They key to this bag’s expensive look is how sharp it is. It’s got plenty of structure, uncluttered lines and a color combination that accents its shape while leaving it totally work-appropriate, even in an extremely conservative office environment. It’s capped off with just enough gleaming silver hardware, including a front lock that’s reminiscent of closures commonly seen on both Louis Vuitton and Prada bags, which goes a long way toward elevating it into expensive-looking territory.

If the old adage about the wisdom dressing for the job you want and not the one you have has any truth to it, this bag is exactly the kind of thing that a recent grad with her first office job needs on her arm. It wouldn’t be too shabby for a not-so-recent grad, either.

Rachel Bilson Looks Casual With an Alexander Wang Bag

Rachel Bilson Alexander Wang Rockie Bag

Here’s actress Rachel Bilson, running errands in Los Angeles, carrying a natural leather Alexander Wang Rockie Bag, which is the little sister of the original Rocco. You can find a Rockie in beige lambskin for $825 at Barneys. (And just in case you’re worried, the Rocco has by no means been retired. There are still plenty of Roccos up for grabs at Barneys and elsewhere.)

If you’re wondering if Rachel is dressing for two, the answer is YES. Rachel is expecting a wee babe with her fiancé, actor Hayden Christensen. This will be the first celebrity tot for both. Rachel is also busy filming season four of her hit CW show Hart of Dixie. If you’d like to tour the rest of Rachel’s designer handbag collection (Amanda describes it as “absolutely sick”), you can do so in “The Many Bags of Rachel Bilson.”

Prada’s Fall 2014 Runway Bags Have Arrived in Stores

Prada Lux Calf Medium Flap Satchel Bag Yellow

In spite of the fact that I’m generally willing to give Miuccia Prada the benefit of the doubt on almost anything (those ill-advised, open-toe Miu Miu cowboy boots from a couple of seasons ago are a notable exception), I wasn’t really feeling most of Prada’s Fall 2014 runway bags. Most of them were decked with huge, ungainly chains and little else, and many of you were similarly unsure whether they’d translate well to retail. Good news: they have!

Pre-orders for Prada’s fall runway bags are now up at Bergdorf Goodman (as well as for a whole load of non-runway options), and the results are mostly quite good. There are far fewer chains, and the bags that have had them eliminated entirely fare the best, especially the elegant top handles. If you still want a chain in your life, there are some smaller, mostly metallic options that meet your needs, but they’re not the highlight here. Check out a selection of the bags below and shop the full selection via Bergdorf Goodman.
