Reader Request: Radiant Orchid Handbags

Pantone announced the Color of the Year for 2014, Radiant Orchid, and it's been a popular topic at my work. My friend Lili found an amazing bag and my friend (and bosslady) Jillian fell hard for it, but at $650 the price hurt. So I thought I'd do a little roundup of my favorite Radiant Orchid bags, all under the $300 mark (except for one).

First up, the bag that started the obsession, Time's Arrow Julian Serpent-Print Duffle:

I love this Gryson Crossbody Bag, great satchel style and on sale for $100.

The color on this Ralph Lauren tote is a bit deeper, if you want to tone it down a bit:

The Steve Madden City Style Satchel is faux leather and under $70. It skews more purple than pink:

Leaning towards bubblegum pink, this Guess Westbrook Satchel looks like it costs more than its $118.

Okay, the Botkier Honore Small Hobo is a bit more of an investment, yes, but it's so fierce.

The radiant orchid colorway of this Fossil Satchel is on sale for $140!

If you're looking for a smaller bag, the Hobo Poppy fits the bill:

I have to say, I wasn't crazy about this color at first, but I would happily carry one of these punchy purple bags. They would be great paired with black and grey this winter in particular. What do you guys think?

  1. The Guess Westbrook has been marked down to $52.79 so I just had to add that one to my growing purse collection. That is probably the only way I will wear the color of the year this year...
