Anyone as obsessed with handbags as we are knows there is no such thing as having too many. Consider your social calendar. The structured satchel is a must-have for work, the clutch is an essential for cocktails, the raffia tote is just right for the beach…the list goes on. But nothing is as special as a handbag with no particular purpose, the one you have to have just because.

Bucket Bag

The Julie bucket bag from the Michael Kors Fall 2014 collection is the kind of piece that inspires instant infatuation. Rendered in luxurious python, it’s divinely tactile. A long crossbody strap and the drawstring closure with high-shine accents are fabulous and functional at once.

Its boho shape is laid-back and unexpected. The python version comes in two shades—rich chocolate and chic taupe. If suede or leather are more your thing, there are versions for you too.

The power of the “just because” handbag is precisely its many possibilities. Whether it’s the conversation piece at parties, your weekend go-to, or a daily essential, you’ll reach for it season after season. Some things are meant to be.
