I love the colors that are usually associated with fall. Greys, navys, and deep shades of red make up the bulk of my wardrobe, and I feel at home wearing these colors. So when I happened upon this burgundy tote, I knew I had found my birthday gift to myself.
My J.Crew Edie bag has been my everyday handbag for a long time, and I’ve been long overdue for something a little roomier. This handbag fits the bill and I couldn’t wait to wear it with my favorite fall colors. Here I am injecting a little fall into my summer.

Your “may have something coming in the mail” was such a tease the other day (and I thought for sure it was going to be a pair of shoes)! But well worth the wait. I adore the rich burgundy color of this tote. It’s absolutely beautiful with the gold hardware. I know you’ll wear her well!
What a gorgeous bag, it is really something! It is very “Kelly” – rich shade, check; classic shape with a twist, check.
p.s. Do you ever wear it on your shoulder? Or is it not a comfortable fit because of the length of the handles? I just wonder because totes can get heavy when loaded up with knickknacks and I dread lugging around 10 lb bags.
Thanks Elle! The handles are just long enough to fit on my shoulder, but it’s not the most comfortable. However, this bag comes with a removable long strap that on me, can be worn on the shoulder or cross-body. I’m sure I’ll sport it that way on the blog soon. =)
can’t wait! I am quite curious about it being worn as a cross-body bag! :)
ooooh that bag is gorgeous. I love the rich burgundy color with the gold hardware. I bet you wish it was almost fall.
That bag is perfect for your style!! Edgy, rich color and classy!! Love it!!
Congrats on the new addition to your handbag collection. I’ve been looking for the perfect red purse for ages, and a few Valentinos are on my potentials list. You look great with it! :)
That purse is gorgeous! The colors red and burgundy remind me of you! And we definitely both have a love for studs!! And I am still not letting you forget about your college day photos that you should share! :p
omg, kelly, that valentino is amazing! and totally you. i love it. im sure we’ll be seeing it a ton come fall ;)
:Oohs and aahs: What a beautiful new handbag!! Love the studded details, texture and gold closure – simply beautiful! Also loving this subtle red-white-blue ensemble :)
What a bag! Sleek and minimalist with some great stud detailing to keep it from being too prim. Very nice!
I’m loving everything about this look Kelly :)
There’s something about the pairing of that watch and that handbag that gives me goose pimples!
Oooh, GORGEOUS! I’m such a sucker for Valentino (& the rockstud collection). I love it, Kelly!
Oh that bag!!!!!!! Swoon!!
so pretty!! what a great bag to add to your collection! adore it on you – anything valentino and rockstuds is just sheer perfection!! xox P
Amazing, amazing bag, Kelly! It’s so you.
Your whole look is stunning. I have a pair of Blank NYC jeans that fit like these, and I adore them!
I love your look here, so chic and stylish! And of course, the bag is to die fo!
Kelly, that bag is gorgeous! I’ve been eyeing an YSL handbag in a very similar color – so excited to see so many beautiful dark reds for this fall.
Mr. AN is doing a seriously terrific job. I’m so happy for you that he’s jumped on board as the blogger’s photographer/bf. HAHAH.
So glad I got to see you tonight along w/this new lovely. Until next time my friend…
gorgeous! I love the color and the size. Looking fab as always Kelly!
That bag looks delicious!
cute outfit! love the way you styled the white pants, the pop of leopard is like a surprise…
That bag is lovely! It looks great with your white jeans and button down.
Love the Valentino bag for $1900 but this one from Michael Kors is similar, and only $378. No, I have no vested interest in Michael Kors. Just came across it by accident!
Kelly, I love, love your bag! What a delicious color. I am really trying to quit shopping for summer clothes, but it’s hard when we haven’t even hit the hottest part of our summer in Texas, yet. You definitely look cool!
love love the color of your bag, what a great fall piece!
