Donna Karan Ribbons and Ropes Tote

Donna Karan Ribbons and Ropes Tote

The flu has invaded my home. There are five sick people roaming around my house including my two sons. As I battle this pesky bug and do my best "Florence Nightingale" impersonation for the rest of my family, I'll continue to bring you more fab bags to admire and lust after.

After a stellar showing during NY Fashion Week, Donna Karan continues to wow us with her much improved handbag collection. I'm particularly smitten with the Ribbons and Ropes Tote (pictured), and can you blame me? The unique and fun top handles, a bundle of leather cords bound together, serve as the design's visual focal point. Ruched ribbon detailing adorns the front and side panels. It's done in such a way as to continue the "classic with an edge" theme found in most of Karan's bags. The lambskin leather tote is roomy and functional and boasts several pockets for added storage as well as offering a removable shoulder strap providing additional carrying options. There are two great colors available for you to choose from - nude or java brown. Note that the leather on this bag is slightly distressed which is more apparent on the darker version as is to be expected.

The Ribbons and Ropes Tote is one of my absolute favorite bags for spring, and you can bet it'll be making an appearance on my "Top 10 Spring Bags" list coming later this week.
