In case you haven’t heard of Clare Vivier yet, she’s been the hottest independent bag designer of 2013. The Everygirl did a great profile on her earlier this year. I love that she describes her style as being inspired from living in Paris and California and it shows in her classic, timeless designs that look totally on-trend. They are made of the softest leather and can even be monogrammed. I picked up the messenger bag in black as my fall handbag purchase. It’s the perfect size to fit everything I need for work, looks cute enough to wear on the weekends and has both a cross-body strap and handles that fit over my wrist and my shoulders.
