Alexander McQueen Melrose Tote

Let us continue today's theme of simple yet chic bags with the Melrose Tote from Alexander McQueen. Mercifully, McQueen spared us the goth look of some of his other skull-clad designs and created a bag with a great shape and loads of storage space. The grass green color (a "must-have" color this spring) and gold-tone hardware compliment each other beautifully. I love the additional punch of color with the hot pink cotton lining as well as the turn-lock closure on the front fold-over flap. The Melrose measures an ample 16.5 x 15 x 6 and is priced at $1435. It's almost $500 more than today's earlier recommendation, but for those of you that want a simple bag with just a little more umph to it the additional cost will prove to be well worth the expenditure in the long run.

    I wasn't thrilled about this bag at first as it reminded me of a watermelon, but the more I looked at it and examined it, it really started to grow on me. I love the shape and the flap turn-lock closure. I think it will be a big hit this season.
