Trend Alert: Neutral Bags

When caught in the middle of fashion crossfire keep your carry all neutral. Meaning: When you have a very colorful or busy outfit going on, a neutral bag can save the day. There's something crisp and luxurious about a pale colored bag. Be sure you don't leave this fragile hued friend in another danger zone though, i.e. a dirty floor. It's a give and take relationship, really.

If you can't afford to spend hundreds on a designer bag but still want a neutral one, I found a bone colored, mock-croc, zip around satchel from the Spring 2008 collection at It also comes in pretty orange and lime green (which tempted me but really want/need a neutral for work). The best feature for me is the lower zippered part can be used for most anything but I need to keep snacks handy for steady blood sugar. It is featured in the Feb issue of SELF and you can get 20% off ($8) the $40 satchel, with the discount code of SELFMAG20. Fedex shipping is $7.95. I just ordered today so all three colors were still in stock.
