Trend Alert: Braided Handle Handbags

Braided handle handbags have a special place in my heart. If I had to pick another decade to have been a teenager, it would be the 70s. Anything braided has a 70s feel to it; it's that boho cool that celebs like Kate Hudson totally pull off. This is why Dazed & Confused is one of my favorite wardrobe movies! So dig out those wide legged jeans, pair them with one of these bags and go for a slow ride.

If that's just my fantasy, these modern day braided bags are sans the fringe and patches - they are quite sophisticated. Here are my picks.

Gryson Leather Shoulder Bag, Medium, $695.

A couple more,

Urban Outfitters Braided Strap Bucket Bag, $58.


Lucky Brand Jeans "Hard Days Night" Leather Bag, $188.

Almost all of my handbags have braided handles. I don't know, I think it's more comfortable or something. My Mom is the same way.

I don't know if I really like the braided handle. I had a nice one from Aldo once and the braid just ended up being annoying it got caught on things and there were more edges to fray...but maybe it was just me...lol that's possible too. i like the urban outfitters one best. it's so cute

I want the white Kooba bag with the braided handles and a braid tie thing around it- does anyone know which one I'm talking about? I think it's from last season but it's soo cute.

I like the thick braided handles on the Gryson bag it looks rich (prob b/c it's freakin $700!!!eek). I think the Urban Outfitters pocketbook looks cheesey though. Not a fan of the lucky bag either - I think because it's such a big bag with such a short strap, seems out of proportion. Hmmm.. not sure where this comment is going. I guess nowhere :)

nice purse! Is there any way that we could get some information on the amazing green purse that Katie Holmes was spotted carrying on St. Patty's day?
