I am normally a fan of Reese Witherspoon’s style. Her everyday look is casual and care-free, sometimes with a little bit of boho mixed in. When I saw this photo, however, I was taken aback just a little bit. I suppose the blue and white woven top isn’t so bad by itself. It is those white jeans that are throwing me off. The outfit looks too matchy-matchy, as if the pieces came together as a set. But I suppose I can forgive her. After all, her taste in handbags appears to be completely unaffected. Check out that gorgeous bag on her arm! It is the Chloe Marcie Hobo!

Top 5 Handbags Worn By Celebrities
Celebrities are known as the go to guides for fashion trends. They can be quite powerful when it comes to wearing something fashionable. One picture is taken of them wearing a certain handbag, and next thing you know the picture is everywhere. Once women around the globe see the snapshot of the newest “it” bag worn by celebrities, for some odd reason they feel the need to have the handbag too. Suddenly, the handbags are sold out of stores world wide, and are then seen on eBay with quite a bit of a price hike. Celebrities have the money to buy tons of handbags everyday if they want to, but when they wear a bag that is sold out everywhere you know the handbag is hot commodity. People can have their personal opinions or what handbags are hot and not. To me if numerous celebrities are seen with certain handbags, those handbags will be listed as “it” handbags. Once a handbag has the privilege of being an “it” handbag it can now have the title of being a top handbag worn by celebrities.

One handbag that is hated by a lot of bagista’s but seen on celebrities is the See by Chloé ‘Daytripper’ Satchel. This handbag has been seen on numerous celebrities including Jessica Alba and Miley Cyrus. Miley Cyrus has been seen everywhere she goes with her blue See by Chloé ‘Daytripper’ Satchel. The blue See by Chloé ‘Daytripper’ Satchel is suddenly sold out of stores. Concidence? I think not. I personally love this handbag, and have written a blog on it before. It didn’t get high reviews but believe it or not, in the celebrity world this handbag is a hot item.

Another handbag that has been seen on the celebrity scene is the YSL Pebbled Leather Easy Y Satchel. This handbag has been seen on Lindsay Lohan a lot lately, and I think no one can deny the beauty of this handbag. It’s obviously to see why a celebrity would want to carry around this gorgeous handbag. The YSL Pebbled Leather Easy Y Satchel is currently not sold out in stores, but I’m sure if more celebrities pick it up it will be soon.

The third handbag seen on celebrities lately is the Louis Vuitton Shimmer Comete handbag. Britney Spears has been seen carrying this handbag everywhere recently and I can’t blame her. She has made a lot of bad decisions in the past, but she scored major points when she decided to purchase the Louis Vuitton Shimmer Comete bag. This handbag is beautiful but comes with a big price tag as well as a waiting list. Britney Spears’ has been seen all over the internet with this handbag in her hand, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it sells out even quicker now.

It’s no surprise that the Christian Dior Karenina handbag is the fourth handbag that celebrities have been seen carrying lately. I personally do not like this handbag, but it’s obvious that Christian Aguilera, Denise Richards, and Sienna Miller do. This handbag is not my style, but I’m sure this handbag will be flying off the shelves due to it being a celebrity favorite.

The last handbag seen on celebrities lately, is the Salvatore Ferragamo Apollonia. I’m sure most bagista’s will think this handbag is hideous but I think it’s unique and beautiful. The colors, and patterns on the handbag are gorgeous! It’s not wonder why Reese Witherspoon has been seen carrying this handbag around. Love it, or Hate it, this handbag is a celebrity favorite.
There are so many handbags out there that could of reached this top 5 celebrity handbag list. Some people may consider these celebrity favorites and some may not. There is one thing we all can agree on though and that is once a celebrity wears a handbag, it’s usually instantly sold out in stores.

Mary Norton to Name Purse After Reese Witherspoon
Designer Mary Norton, created the first few MOO ROO (nicknames of her two daughters, Micah and Reilly) bags on her dining room table as gifts for friends. Then within the next few years the label Moo Roo became widely popular among celebrities and bagista’s all over the world.
Mary Norton is currently undergoing a name change from Moo Roo to Mary Norton. When the changeover is complete the new handbags will be marked with the new name, Mary Norton. The new change also gives birth to a wider selection of couture handbags, from croc-embossed totes to gold-brushed clutches with satin underlay. Also rumor has it around the bag-o-sphere that one of those bags will be named after Actress Reese Witherspoon. The bag lady Mary Norton was on a hunt for a tag name for a new clutch accessory when she saw the “elegant” Legally Blonde star on the red carpet at an awards show. The designer says, “It (the clutch) has a clean, classic look. It made me think of Reese, who is a down-to-earth mom and an elegant woman.” The new evening minaudiere clutch, which features a decorative jeweled clasp, will be available shortly at MooRoo.com or at Mary Norton Boutiques for around $1k.

Reese Witherspoon with her Louis Vuitton Onatah GM Handbag
Spotted: Stepping out of Beverly Hill’s Premiere Salon Neil George, it’s the vibrant forever glamorous Reese Witherspoon with her dark Louis Vuitton Onatah GM Handbag.
One of the bags that you don’t see very many people carrying is the Louis Vuitton Onatah. I love it. It’s a super comfortable light everyday bag that features the lv logo – but doesn’t scream it. The supple calf leather purse features the LV monogram pattern and flowers, which have been drawn onto the bag using a special perforation technique. This Onatah also features brass hardware with golden patina finish, adjustable canvas shoulder strap with links, zip top closure with long leather pulls, and a silky monogram painted viscose lining decorated with a Louis Vuitton tinted cowhide leather badge. Measurements: 14.2″ x 8.1″ x 0.8″

Celebrity | Reese Witherspoon | Abercrombie and Fitch Tote
It’s time for a workout. What bag will you bring? Reese Witherspoon headed off for her daily workout toting along non-other than a super cheap Abercrombie and Fitch tote, which btw you can currently find on eBay for around $10 to $30. I don’t mean to be impolite by calling Abercrombie and Fitch super cheap (as I sit here in my Ezra Fitch cashmere sweater). The bag is just plain cheap chic. They are suitable for a gym bag, beach tote (that’s when I used my Abercrombie logo “A and F” tote), overnight bag or just as a casual day bag.
eBay Alert There are over a dozen of these cheap chic bags currently up on our favorite auction site eBay. There are various different designs from the vertical Abercrombie signature name logo stretched along the front of the bag to the simple solid color bags with the Abercrombie iconic mouse.

Drum roll for the designer deal of the day. . not just one deal but two deals that help complete an outfit. First sale item is the Yves Saint Laurent Yris Hobo for over 50% off. This bag is unquestionably not even on the same “It Bag” status level as the Yves Saint Laurent Muse Bag, but still a is great deal.
Warning: If you like this bag then you may want to hurry up and snatch one. This Yves Saint Laurent Yris Hobo is new to the sale rack at Neiman Marcus, so there is no telling how many are left. I noticed that whenever I put a bag up for designer deal of the day, it is usually gone within hours of posting. Sometimes I feel like the woot.com for handbags.
