There are few things in life that I will never tire of – red velvet cupcakes, Champagne, the PS1, and the color green. Now two of my favorite things have melded together. And the outcome is much healthier than the equally delicious combination of cupcakes and bubbly (not to mention easier on my hips)! In just a couple of years the PS1 bag has reached iconic status and consequently, has inspired a number of knock-offs, including Target’s $35 Mossimo bag. No contest. Proenza Schouler‘s lush green suede is as soft as utter and the hue is as light as air, so refreshing after months wading through a sea of black bags. The quintessential city bag has been given a splash of subtle color – yes, this green is not intrusive but as neutral as a shade comes. Which gives city girls the go-ahead to work some color into their wardrobes and make their urban jungle shine that much brighter, just in time for spring. At Proenza Schouler for $1,595.
Pair with: No uniform is finished without a good jacket. A cropped linen-blend, Carven’s is city-smart and in pale blush, it’s unexpected. Especially with your new bag. On Net-a-Porter for $850.
