Autumn’s best bags: From the catwalk to the racetrack


Celebrity friends Lily and Ciara are pals with clutches

Purses are like friends, you can never have too many. And when choosing purses and friends I always opt for classy acts. Handbags and friends should elevate your overall being and not bring you down. If you are going to loosen the purse strings and lash out, it’s always money well spent on great handbags and great friends!

A handbag for the races must be neat and petite but roomy enough for the trackside essentials:

  • Sunglasses
  • Lip stick
  • Cotton tips – perfect for fixing eye and lip makeup
  • Band-Aids – for blisters
  • Folding flats– avoid the end of day barefoot, heel toting tart look
  • Safety Pins and bobby pins – for emergency repairs!

Here are some Autumn Winter saddlebags that fit the bill.

Gucci soho leather shoulder bag

Simple enough for afternoon outings with a chain strap that extends into after hours in The Members Stand.

Gucci bamboo daily leather clutch

Discerningly simple yet completely seductive, the Bamboo Daily handbag collection marries beautiful design with easy elegance. Crafted in supple leather and featuring traditionally worked black enamel Bamboo accents, this clutch makes a luxurious statement.

Gucci Emily Guccissima leather shoulder bag

A new ladylike shape in rosy beige that can be worn as a cross body or on the shoulder.

DKNY Quilted Leather Crossbody

An upmarket look that doesn’t break the bank at $188.

DKNY’s Bottletop Wristlet adds a bit of an edge to your look.

This Saint Laurent Grained Leather Clutch from Browns Fashion is  ever stylish classic.

L’Afshar’s Perspex Clutch Boxes have a worldwide cult following. This Amethyst Box with an engraved insect on the front perfectly captures Autumn trackside tones.

This Roger Vivier Emerald Suede Envelope Clutch oozes luxury

This Michael by Michael Kors Elsie Box Clutch channels the popular 50’s look and Audrey Hepburn, always a winner at Fashion on the Field.
