Anthropologie Summer Bags

I'm swooning over Anthropologie's latest crop of purses.

Their Congo Tote is simply dripping with coral, wood and glass beads. This roomy satin-lined purse can be carried in your hand or over the shoulder by a detachable and adjustable shoulder strap. A lovely summer piece, it somehow manages to be decadent and earthy at the same time.

The Shell Drawstring Hobo is lux castaway chic. This large beauty is composed of neutral silks studded with seashells, coral and glass seed beads and finished with leather tassels.

The extraordinary Beaded Butterfly Bag is embellished with intricate embroidery and seed beads and pulled together by a rattan bracelet handle. It's padded and fully lined with a zipper closure.

On the cheaper end of the spectrum, the Stenciled Satchel recalls the sweetness of white eyelet. The floral cutouts reveal the aqua lining, and the white cotton is adorned with embroidery, gold sequins and glass beading. This shoulder bag features an inside pocket and a snap closure, and can be yours for $58.

Lastly, this darling Crab Apple Coin Purse sports an unexpected lavender lining, a corsage of striped cotton, lace and buttons, and a charming $18 price tag.

    I liked the stencil bag when I saw it in the catalog. Very cute, and a great buy. Not that I will be buying ANY more handbags for a while now, after four Hogans! In fact, I may have to resort to Ramen Noodles. Okay, it's not that dire. The shell bag is one I must have overlooked...that is fabulous! I would break it immediately, but on a more dainty (and better coordinated) person it would be lovely.

    I've just combed the Anthroplogie site for the Crab Apple Coin Purse and can't find it anywhere - anyone else have any better luck?

    It appears that the crab apple coin purse has sold out sometime since this posting. I guess the price tag was a little *too* charming...
