beso is my go to site for shopping because I can browse through items at thousands of stores – from major retailers to exclusive boutiques – all in one place.  What exactly does that mean?  Much of my existence revolves around handbags since I am constantly researching the latest trends, designers, and what’s new in stores.  beso allows me to shop for the latest handbags without the hassle of visiting each store’s website.

Elie Tahari Leanne Silken Leather Tote

My favorite bag for summer is the Elie Tahari Leanne Silken Leather Tote.  The slashed suede detailing, geometric cutouts and tonal topstitching give this tote layers of texture that you just don’t see everyday.  The camel color leather is rich yet understated, and since it’s neutral, the style options are endless!

    Finding Longchamp’s orange tote: “Ooh, j’adore!”

    I’ll bypass the bling and the studs and the trend
    And look for a classic I’ll wear without end
    With its fine topstitched leather and tangerine hue
    This French bag is definitely what I would choose!×4-leather-tote-orange/1886139195/detail

    I love this bag for several reasons; since my pregnancy I have done the larger bag simply because I didn’t want to carry both a purse and a diaper bag for the next few years while hauling all my son’s paraphenelia. This bag is a large, open tote (perfect for carrying an extra change of clothing/shoes for a toddler); is in a yummy shade of cognac, plus it has great texture and hardware.

  4. Ooooh! I would love to win this shopping spree! I see SOOOOOO many bags that are tremendously cute! I haven’t purchased a nice bag in FOREVER, so I deserve this:-) After perusing the site, I think I really like this MK bag:

    It has animal print, it’s in brown, it is large enough to double as a diaper bag and lunch box when I am out with the kids. I am not sure how original or stylish people would consider this bag, but with 4 little ones in tow, this is a trendy option. I can stop looking like Erykah Badu’s Bag Lady…carrying a purse, diaper bag, lunch bag and whatever else. This a cute bag for the trying to stay in fashion trend momma!

    Hope I win!!!

    I LOVE this reversable bag. First of all it’s a “two for one” deal- you can’t beat that! Second, it’s got two great styles- the metalic side is great for dinner out, and the floral pattern can dress up a casual about the town daytime outfit. And of course, it’s big enough for this Mama to fit all of the daily essentials. All of the colors call to me, but the turquoise is my FAV.

  8. Hi Aly, I’m glad you like our reversible hobo. Now visit and pick your favorite summer bag. Then post the link here!

  9. What a delightful prize giveaway contest! I would love to own a special bag
    of my own. One of my favorites for summer is the “! Denim is my choice of fabric and
    I like the denim and the bucket tote style of this bag.
    Many thanks, Cindi

    I found this purse under the beso – purse section and was attracted to it immediately. It is casual and comfortable. Looks very soft.
    I would love to win it and use it!!

  11. Misha S. says:

    This gorgeous Valentino bag would be my favorite bag for this summer! Its rich caramel color is neutral enough to wear with any outfit and the bag is perfect for day or night. The slouchy look and great bow detail make it look luxurious yet effortless. The best thing about this bag is it is perfect for summer but transitions seamlessly into fall and winter!

  12. Tara R. says:

    You can tell a lot about a woman and the purse she carries – her personality, her style, how she carries herself. A purse can change your entire look from casual to chic. I mean think about it. How many times, during the summer, do we throw on a pair of jean shorts and a white tank? However, if you have the right purse, that casual outfit would fit right in with the who’s-who on Rodeo Drive.

    When browsing the beso web site, I ran across this purse,, and that’s the feeling I got – Rodeo Drive. It doesn’t read like the classier looks of Channel, Gucci, or Louis Vuitton. It’s better! This soft croc is classy and it has personality. To me, it says something about the statement I would want to make while carrying it – bold, fun, and possibly dangerous! You could do so much with this purse and make it work for Spring and Fall with browns and grays!

    This is my first time visiting beso’s web site, but it will not be my last. It’s a great fine with reasonable prices, something we all could use during these economic times. So, pick me! I want to feel like I’m on Rodeo Drive, while living on the East Side – South Carolina!

  13. This Salvatore Ferragamo python bag is a dream. It’s WAY out of my price range but just looking at it I can imagine all the events I can wear it to and outfits I can wear it with and I know what to keep my eye out for in my own price range. That’s why I like Expensive, designer items displayed right next to stylish, affordable pieces. In a one-stop-shop I can be both inspired by high-end fashion and find trends that I can actually pay for on my budget.

    The Ferragamo Sotto Chiave Python Shoulder Bag is Amazing. Unique. Classic. Versatile. Structured. Effortless.Complex. Working Girl Chic.

    That $250 shopping spree might not get me anywhere near purchasing this bag…but a girl can dream!!

    I would LOVE to win this contest and finally have a bag that I am proud and excited to wear!

  22. Joanna Smith says:

    Wow, what am amazing selection of handbags! So many truly exquisite designs, I was like a kid in a candy store! I really fell in love with the MICHAEL Michael Kors Hamilton Large Tote, Hemp. I choose this as one of my favorites because it is classy, will make me look really stylish and sophisticated, and not only is it visually stunning, a really spectacular design, but it is so functional too! It is large enough that I can carry all of my gear, and things I need for my young children, without losing a sense of my own personal style and elegance that I love to stilll maintain, in spite of the fact I am a busy mommie! Thank you so much for the wonderful chance to enter.

  26. Christine says:

    There are soooo many adorable bags on this site. But it was easy for me to narrow down my choice. As a working mother of two small ones (ages 2 and 9 months), I’m always looking for a cute bag that can serve dual duty as my purse and diaper bag. So that’s why I absolutely love the black Metallic tote by Michael Kors:

    The bag is chic and sophisticated, but practical at the same time! I love it!
