Celebrity Style: Rachel McAdams and the Bally Lu Shoulder Bag

I suppose I should mention The Notebook is one of my all-time favorite movies. It's as romantic as one can imagine and a true testament to how love can endure all. Even my husband, who tends to eschew "chick flicks", was moved by the film's message. I loved Rachel McAdam in the film - her character is strong, sassy but always struggling between her head and her heart (don't we all go through that?!?). I 've followed her career up until now, and she's one of the few young actresses around that really has her head firmly placed on her shoulders. Her style has evolved over the years as well. She seems to be more comfortable now with her fashion choices or simply doesn't care what is written about her. Good for her. I only have great things to say about her easy, clean and casual style. Her eclectic choice in handbags has also matured over the past couple of years as is evident with her current choice of arm candy, the Bally Lu Shoulder Bag.

Rachel has really kicked things up a notch or two by opting for the over-sized Bally Lu Shoulder Bag. Her ultra-chic version, done in an on-trend grey suede, features wide pleated detailing throughout the exterior as well as a single rolled top handle attached to the bag by gold-tone metal rings. The zippered top sports dual, logo-plated zipper pulls and opens up to reveal a very roomy, fully-lined interior with pockets for additional storage. You can purchase the chocolate brown leather version pictured above on-line, visit to locate a store near you and try to score Rachel's trendy version, or check out ebay to snag Rachel's bag for about $200 less than retail. The color really doesn't matter because the 'Lu' is fabulous no matter what color you make it.
