Attention guys: A girl loves a good purse. (We know this is not news to you.)
We're particularly smitten with these covetable vintage-meets-modern clutches by Collina Strada. Handmade in Los Angeles by fashion designer and New York transplant Hillary Taymour, each zip purse is adorned with eco-conscious leather pleats in a stacked chevron pattern. In the right neutral hue, we'll love one of these beauties through the seasons—and we promise not to say we need a new one come spring.
