Resort Retreat or House Hibernation – There’s something for everyone during this transitional time.

Tis the season to shop around the clock for those after holiday sales and to exchange that ugly sweater Aunt Bonnie bought you for a fresh off the Resort Runway accessory. Fashion is all about change and this transitional time of year is the perfect opportunity for your favorite designers to try something new by offering bags in a mix of textiles and materials from that perfect beach tote for your Barbados winter escape to that neutral satchel to relieve you from the dark dreary colors of fall and winter. I like to call it the SCOTCH GARD SEASON. All these light bags against your dark jeans and jackets – there’s bound to be a tear or two if you don’t protect your purse properly.
