Celebrity Style: Jessica Alba and the Derek Lam Romina Bag

This question goes out to anyone living in So Cal - Is it really so cold there that practically every celebrity I see is clothed in winter garb? Just a thought, ladies, so please get back to me on this so I can put it out of my head for good. I'm in Miami, so anytime I see someone in LA dressed for the Alps when I'm over here melting in the heat I start to wonder just how similar these two states really are.

Moving on to the object of my musings, here is the always beautiful Jessica Alba carrying Derek Lam's latest handbag endeavor, the Romina Bag. Smooth grey leather, pleating detailing and a myriad of seams are the focus of this design. A combination drawstring/magnetic closure, side flap pocket and lined interior with zip pocket round out the bag's features. Don't think I've forgotten to mention the metal chain shoulder strap. I've saved it for last because it's described as a "detachable" strap. I'm assuming this is a description mistake. Why would the only strap on the bag be detachable? Makes absolutely no sense, right? Anyhow, I like the 'Romina' on Jessica. It has plenty of space and looks quite stylish with her layered outfit. If you like the Derek Lam Romina Bag, take advantage of Shopbop's 25% off all full-priced handbag sale. You can bring the price down from $1690 to $1266.25.
