On her way out of her NYC apartment, Sarah Jessica Parker sported a Steven Alan little black dress with a pleated skirt ($335) and a black patent chain-strap Roger Vivier bag over it. Gold studded flats, her signature wraparound sunglasses, and a green bracelet served as her other chic accoutrements. Sarah Jessica also carried two large canvas bags, one with hot-pink straps by Michelle Vale. Re-create her latest darling daytime look for work or the weekend by investing in the similar pleated black dress we chose below or this less-expensive one from Aqua ($88).

It all started last year with the quest for a handbag that goes with everything.
Tired of coming up short, native New Yorker Michelle Vale created her eponymous line of handbags with interchangeable hardware. Each bag comes with straps that can be swapped out, so, your options — wear the bag like a clutch or slung over the shoulder with a gold or silver strap.
While functionality is always a plus, Michelle also believes that practical doesn't have to mean plain. The line may still be young, but Cameron Diaz carries the Mushroom Jete clutch (left, $595) in her upcoming movie What Happens in Vegas and Kate Bosworth was spotted with the Entrechat ($895) on her birthday. More spottings are to come, I'm sure . . . maybe even as close to home as slung over my shoulder.
