Editors Best of 2011: The coolest jewelry and handbags


Each year, we love coming through our past year of archives to bring you some of our editors’ top picks. Today, we’re excited to feature our favorite accessories from the coolest baubles to the handbags we’re coveting.

The Cambridge Satchel
Liz: I’ve got to give it to any mom who starts her own company so she can better support her own children. But when that company happens to yield the affordable It Bag of the year? Well now I’m standing up and applauding. Loudly. And the colors? Loooove.

Best handbags of 2011: Adeleshop leather satchel

Adeleshop Leather Clip Satchel
Kristen: Lucky for me to have stumbled upon Adeleshop on Etsy. The versatile bag in rich, bright colors that is big enough for all my junk, yes, even my laptop is definitely worth the splurge. Well that and all the passers-by asking me where I got it every single day.

Best jewelry of 2011: leather cuff bracelet

Melissa Zook accessories
Kristen + Liz: We found this local Brooklyn artist on Fab (our shopping obsession) and instantly fell for her inventive, modern accessories. Her leather and metal necklace made it into our holiday gift guide this year. But it’s the leather cuffs we’ve both been wearing nonstop this season, and the compliments keep coming.

    I love that Cambridge satchel. Such a delicious red to tote in the dead of winter. Let’s hear it for mompreneurs!
