It’s a rainy day, and I wish I’d saved my pennies for a Kelly Locke “Sharyn” bag in brown croc! The Los Angeles-based company launched its line of über-chic bags, clutches and totes today. They’re luxe to be sure, but trust me, the designer is married to a former colleague (with the dreamiest vintage yellow Mercedes convertible imaginable) and I’ve seen the prototypes up close and personal and they’re incredible! The bags are entirely handmade in the U.S., and use exotic skins, semi-precious gemstones and sterling silver details. Price point starts at $500, but they’re about half of what you’d pay for one of the usual suspects from the major labels.
