Jason Wu Diane Flap Bag - $1895
Relatively new to the handbag world, Jason Wu never disappoints. This lovely flap bag has what I call an updated retro feel. The petite Jason Wu bag rendered in smooth, sturdy leather. It also has a 2-in-1 strap for added versatility.

This structured piece from Michael Kors’ diffusion line offers sophistication at a great price. The saffiano leather and gold tone hardware pair together quite nicely.
