Baggin' Out: Juicy Couture Sunday Tote

I'm not sure if you've noticed but straw bags are now very "in." If you've been living under a rock, you may have missed the hoards of celebs toting straw totes by everyone from Marc Jacobs to Valentino. So naturally, we all need one.

Baggin' Out: Topshop Tan Washed Leather Rucksack

I've got a traveling mindset going on this week. On Friday, I'm jetsetting off to Toronto! It's for school, but I do still get one full day of shopping and roaming around my province's capital. Since I know my itinerary fairly well, I'm trying to pack accordingly and decide which of my many purses to bring.

Baggin' Out: The Petal Pouf Bag

Since the weather has been less than ideal this week (read: rain and/or snow at ALL TIMES), I decided I need to find a bag that truly channeled spring. Even if the weather outside is frightful, a happy purse will help improve my mood and keep my chin up.

8 Under $20: Yummy Orange

This season is all about brights, but the color that stands out above all the others this spring is orange. In every shade from pastel orange to coral-orange to fiery red-orange, the color is everywhere and on everything -- from sweaters and dresses to sandals, bags, jewelry and more!

Budget Stylista: It's All About the Flats

It's still too cold for sandals and wedges (especially this April where Detroit witnessed a 4-inch snow storm on April 18th! WTF, Mother Nature?!), but we shudder at the thought of having to tuck our calves into our boots for the 1,478th day in a row. Flats are the perfect in-betweener.

Baggin' Out: Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Huge Hillier Hobo

Now that hot weather has started to creep in, I'm seeing girls busting out of their shirts their brightly-colored bags. Turquoise, hot pink, neon orange - I've seen, and loved, it all. After all, summer is the perfect time to rock a daring purse; all the scenery around is bright and sunny, flowers are blooming, the sun is shining and you're walking on the boardwalk, sporting a handbag in a spectacular shade!

Baggin' Out: Deena & Ozzy Chain Tote

I just finished my exams on Tuesday (hooray for me!) and have quickly shifted my focus to planning my summer. I want to take several roadtrips, spend weekends at my camp (or cottage, whichever you prefer), work hard at my new job and look stylish while doing it all! I also can't wait to spring clean the crap my wardrobe.

We've All Been There: 'Selling' Back Our Books

You finished your last exam early and, after waiting for someone else to turn theirs in (you don't want to be first!), ran down the steps of that lecture hall, slammed that baby on the desk and skipped your way to freedom

Baggin' Out: THEIT Bossi Bag

Nicole Farjardo came up with the idea for THEIT while working as a international flight attendant. She had the same issues as me: she wanted to carry around her heavy-duty camera to capture all the great sights she got to see, but couldn't find a fashionable camera bag. So she created one herself.

Baggin' Out: Gentle Fawn Fever

Since the weather is heating up (even in Northern Ontario!), I've been on the lookout for cute, summer purses to feature. That means something that I can sling over my shoulder and tote around whether I'm walking along the beach, riding the rollercoaster at an amusement park or out for a night on the town with my gals. And I think I've found that in the Gentle Fawn Fever Bucket Bag!

Baggin' Out: ALDO Decourcey

Since my last few picks have been "higher end," I decided to stick to a budget this week! (I'm doing this as much for myself as I am for all of you. Trust me.)

Baggin' Out: See by Chloe Poya Satchel

See is the diffusion line of Chloe, a chic French fashion house that is very popular with It Gals. Not only do they have a full ready-to-wear line of apparel, they also make gorgeous bags with the same street-style feel. While it may be hard to pull off a more couture Chloe dress for your day full of classes, a See by Chloe dress would be easy peasy.

Baggin' Out: Cooperative Turnlock Tote

Urban Outfitters has been one of my favorite shops since I was a funky 15-year-old trying to spice up my Catholic school uniform. They specialize in quirky yet stylish fashions for the girl who wants to be a little bit different. Besides carrying great, vintage-inspired clothing, Urban Outfitters also has a phenomenal selection of purses to suit your every need!

Baggin' Out: Matt and Nat Santogold

Matt & Nat is the brainchild of Inder Bedi, and it came about while he was completing his degree in Marketing at Concordia University (in Montreal - go Canada!). As part of a course, he was required to come up with a business plan, which of course was Matt and Nat. Because he practiced a vegetarian lifestyle, the line had to be vegan. He was so taken by the idea of a vegan handbag line, that he decided to give up Law School and turn his business plan into a legitimate career.
