Trend Alert: Eggplant Evening Bags

When you think of New Year’s, you think of parties. And when you think of parties, you think of shiny, slinky fabric, or perhaps a bit of sparkle, and definitely head-turning elegance.
I bring you my style forecast (accessories edition) for New Year’s 2009-2010: eggplant (purple) evening bags. Gorgeous, unexpected colors that go with virtually everything (don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it), and virtually guaranteed to give you a unique look that says, “Hey, I’ve got style, and it didn’t come pre-ordered from the page of a catalogue.”


J. Crew Satin Limelight Clutch, $78



Inge Christopher bag, $120



Shira Leah bag, $42



Lulu Townsend clutch, $29.95



Inge Christopher bag, $178


I cannot even begin to tell you how good any of the above would look with a black — or even a silver — minidress! Pair them with some black metallic bangles and bold dangly earrings and you’re ready for a night on the town.

Sigh…I love pretty things. They make me happy.

    I love this new purple trend, I wish it was warmer here so I could wear my purple peep-toes!

    • Try wearing your purple peep toes with brightly colored tights–like yellow! Or tone it down with soft grey tights. You’ll be able to wear them all year round!

  • I love the Inge Christopher bag! It is so cute and very vintage.
