Call it the thrill of the hunt. Sometimes itâ€™s almost more fun â€“ itâ€™s definitely more satisfying â€“ to sniff out a good bargain.

There are the bags we buy out of necessity, the ones we know will eventually get creased and worn in and eventually pass their prime. This is not one of those bags. Matthew Williamson â€™s embellished clutch would most certainly fall into the category of the goody bag, a fun and frivolous party topper you purchase to lift your spirits and uplift your cocktail wardrobe
A bag like this makes me want to throw caution to the wind and run off on a worldly adventure. Maison Martin Margiela â€œReplica 1986 Dublinâ€ bag is fit for a sensual female version of Indiana Jones (although Harrison Ford was once sensual, but that was back in the mid-eighties, too). Two-tone brown leather is actually exhilarating when itâ€™s done with this much gusto, and in such a classic design with impeccable stitching, itâ€™s totally timeless.
It seems like every movie hitting theaters is in 3-D â€“ itâ€™s all about maximum impact. So why shouldnâ€™t our bags follow suit? All of our bags have some degree of volume (although some envelope clutches are more slender than others and some are even pancake-flat), but Iâ€™m talking about bags that are full-on boxes â€“ 4-D! In perfect-square shapes or full rectangles, they definitely make an in-depth impression
