Up And Coming: Dagne Dover

This past weekend, I was introduced to a new, fun handbag line called Dagne Dover thanks to my friend Brittney over at Hosting & Toasting. The whole concept of the brand is high quality bags, that are fashionable and functional.

They have two styles: the Tote and the Clutch + Wallet, both available in six fabulous colors.  The quality of the fabric is fantastic (think Louis Vuitton fantastic!) and they're truly designed with the modern lady in mind.

Here's a peek inside the tote - it has compartments for everything, including your water bottle!

And here's a peak inside the clutch/wallet. One of the really neat features is that the card case with the cash and coin compartments is detachable (via magnets)!

I ended up going with the clutch in Bowery Green (pictured below)...

...and the Onyx Tote is on my Christmas list!
