Celebrity Style: Michelle Trachtenberg and the Kooba Rio Tote

Awww! Buffy's little sister is all grown up and quite the fashionista. It's nice to see her dressed in a chic and age-appropriate manner. Her choice of handbag suits her youthful look as well. I love the modern lines and intriguing shape of the Kooba Rio Tote. This is a perfect choice for Michelle as well as any 20-something woman whose style reflects a more fashion-conscious sensibility.

The Rio is large (19 x 13.5 x 5), but its' simple design keeps it from overpowering Michelle's petite frame. It features a glossy, patent leather exterior, roomy dual shoulder straps and open top with magnetic snap closure (or you can opt to use interior zippers to close it up as well). The interior has several pockets for additional storage. While Michelle's version appears to be taupe, it's actually silver. It must be a subtle silver ;-) Who cares what color it is anyway. Dawny cleans up good, don't she?!?

    That's a great question. Bags that reflect a more youthful, edgy style (shape, color or function) are what I consider to be age-appropriate bags. The same can be said for 50-something women who carry silly print-clad Dooney & Bourke or Juicy Couture bags that are, by nature and design, more appropriate for younger women and teenagers. I think it's a matter of understanding what looks good on you and not falling into the trap of wanting to follow trends when they don't necessarily apply to ones' age group.
