Style Notes: Make like Monikh and opt for the most-loved satin bag by The Row. It now comes in a gold hue (below) that'll see you through party season, too.
Style Notes: When Jacquemus makes a new teeny-tiny mini bag, it's only natural it'll go big. It comes in every colour of the rainbow, but we love this blue number Babba is rocking (steal her style here). The cute pup is unfortunately not included.
