Fashionable Bags for Moms


Bags are a signature piece in any wardrobe that can both enhance a look and provide you with the storage that you need! During a recent press preview, I had the chance to check out bags from Iris Apfel, Emma Fox, and Carlos by Carlos Santana where I discovered some unique looks for moms looking for function during the day as well as ways to 'go glam' at night. With the holidays coming, these bags are a great gift guide idea and they can all easily be found on


I was immediately struck by the Iris Apfel bags, and I loved learning more about Iris Apfel herself who is a vibrant designer and style icon in her 90s! The Extinctions by Iris Apfel collection - much like her - are filled with personality complete with bold colors, vivid prints and style that is really unlike anything I have ever seen before. Some of my favorites are the Bucket Bag in black and white, the Hobo bag in red and white and the Tote in grey and yellow. Most of them also come with a signature pom pom and they are made of interesting materials like Mongolian lamb and snakeskin.

I also loved checking out the Emma Fox handbag line, a classic collection that captures the essence of the modern women in the city who also yearns for the country. This is apparent in the current collection that features classic satchels, foldover satchels, incredible shoulder bags and chic crossbody bags in a mix of reds, blues, blacks, and browns. I really loved the Frame Satchel in black, Foldover in Multi (black and blue), and the Dressage Frame Shoulder bag in purple.


The Carlos by Carlos Santana were a bit of surprise since I didn't realize how affordable AND fashion-forward they are. This included the chic Laura satchel in yellow, the vibrant Twist Foldover Tote in red and the rock n'roll chic dreamcatcher bag.
