YOU CAN TAKE THE GIRL OUT OF THE CITY


But you can't take the City out of the Girl
HANDBAG OF THE MOMENT | FASHION CLIFF NOTES


This Weeks Handbag of the Moment: 
The Canal St Clutch by Mignon Faget

Of all the handbag silhouettes, a clutch has the most attitude. No matter how many zippers and studs a tote, satchel or hobo can handle, the clutch will always be the bag that says "Yeah, so what."

The clutch holds almost nothing : no extra pair of walking shoes, no bottle of water, no laptop. There is an air of confidence and power that comes from holding on to practically nothing. It also gives your hands something lady like to do. (Ever see Kate Middleton's hands idle?!) Lastly, it adds a fashionable touch to your dining table. If the table is big enough go ahead and adorn the setting with your Pochette.

On this spring weekend in the Catskills in upstate New York, vintage Levi's and the Canal Street Clutch accompanied me to Peekamoose Restaurant


While Peekamoose is rather upscale, it is nestled among the casual, laid back villages that comprise the Catskill community. Hence, this new handbag collection from Mignon Faget is the perfect mix of hippie and chic for such an occasion. (cross body featured here)

It's ideal for a city girl in the country or a country girl in the city... still not sure which one I am sometimes.
