Autumn is officially upon us, and most celebs have already retired their favorite summer styles. Instead, their latest bag picks are velvet Miu Mius, suede Givenchy bags and other classic fall standbys. Some celebs are even mixing it up with a little white after Labor Day. Luscious textures and layers are plentiful right now, and we can’t be more than a week or two out from knee-high boots.

Givenchy Easy Tote
Shop Givenchy via Neiman Marcus
Here’s Jessica Simpson, leaving her NYC hotel with a black suede and leather Givenchy Easy Tote. This style is no longer produced, but when it was in stores, it wasn’t a Givenchy style we saw celebs favor too often. Was it because of its sub-$1,000 price tag?
It had been in 2003, shortly after my 1st child was born, that I bought my first ever Hermes bag– it was an Hermes orange Kelly in 35cm, using palladium hardware.When I carried the bag around with my baby, one of the younger “women who lunch” whom I visited in her family’s retail store asked me what bag I had been toting. She remarked that it looked like a “briefcase” and it was something she would never be caught dead carrying because it was in her words “ugly.” LOL. I really don’t recall the bag that she was carryingout, but I recalled her not understanding what an Hermes Kelly or Birkin was. I respected her opinion of my tote. After all, it was my “ugly” bag. LOL. But hey, I had been so proud of this bag since it was something I had bought for myself with my own hard- earned money– my push present LOL. I purchased the bag believing it was likely to be the costliest bag I’d ever purchase, and that it was my final. I had bought the Hermes bag even before I ended up purchasing the Louis Vuitton Neo Denim Speedy.This was incidentally the bag which jumpstarted this tote site as “The Bag Hag Diaries.” Back then, I was still blogging under another site at Blogspot. Ok let us not get nostalgic since when I went to look at some of my old posts to pull the pictures of the bags over, I cringed hahahaha!!

Chloé Hudson Bag

Sofia Vergara has really been favoring this neutral leather Chloé Hudson Bag. I know because I noticed she carried it several times while I was putting together this post about her designer shoes.
