Purse Trend: Black with a touch of Gold
Have you gone purse shopping lately and noticed the increased number of black and gold bags? They’re everywhere. From online to instore, this trend is all over the place for this up-and-coming fall season.

Personally, I’m more of a black and platinum/silver type of girl, so I doubt I would rock one of these bags. Well except for the Chloe Gold Bow Clutch. That one is just simply adorable.

What do you guys think? Is this black with a touch of gold trend something you crave?

Here are the bags:

Chloe’s new vintage-inspired Bow Clutch evening necessity will hold everything you need for your night out and will do so while looking fabulous. The black crinkled leather body features a magnetic flap closure, a detachable thin leather strap and topped off with an eye-catching big bold gold bow.

Need something a little more structured? Block-like? Jimmy Choo’s new Carlotta evening clutch is a bold statement piece that would accessorize you well on your little black dress occasion. The body of this rectangular-brick is made of black patent leather with gold metal bars stapled on the sides. The mouth of this clutch is kept shut with a signature clasp fastening on the top that pops open to reveal the suede interior lining with lilac trim.

It’s Zac Posen’s popular Aurora Frame Bag. Made popular by being seen on the arms of many stylish celebs like ex-Oc’ers Rachel Bilson & Mischa Barton. I wonder if any of the Zac Posen Celeb fan base will pick this one up for their collection..

The doctor-style bag is now available in grained black leather with contrast metallic gold leather frame and base. This bag also features matching gold hardware, clasp fastening on top with signature hexagonal detail, and feet on the base - because who really uses purse hooks? Lavatory floor, there’s already hooks on the door. Restaurant, I pull up an extra chair.

As seen in Vogue Magazine for bags to have for fall, it’s the Anya Hindmarch Bogart Bag. Well I think this one is a lot more appealing than what she has been coming out with lately, uhh, “Girls Need Bags”
