A little known secret: I have a thing for owls. I don’t know what it is. I just love owls. It’s not to the point where I know anything about them. I just like looking at them. I think it’s their face. Owls give great face.
So it should come as no surprise that September’s Handbag of the Month is Kate Spade’s Sherwood Ida handbag. Okay, so maybe it’s a bit off-beat to wear an owl on your arm. But fashion can’t be completely serious. I have a great sense of humor, and I like to use fashion to express it. This owl handbag is campy, light-hearted and fun. Only a brave woman with the ability to laugh and enjoy life could pull this off. That’s what I love about designer Kate Spade. While most of her bags are very clean and classy, she always has a few that have a cheeky appeal to them. And this boho-chic, pieced suede handbag named for the mythical forest of Robin Hood is no exception.
