      Why: Haute hippie is the hottest trend in handbags this fall, with everyone from teen queen Miley Cyrus to leading lady Julia Roberts being snapped with their boho bag. Luxe handbag designers are offering up fringed, beaded, mirrored, and embroidered versions with a hefty price tag. The fab news is that you don’t need to spend a fortune to get the look. Check out this beautiful burgundy silk purse from Maiwa. It’s the perfect size for carrying your day-to-day essentials, and the drawstring closure is secure so your treasures won’t fall out. The store carries a variety of sizes and patterns so that you can find the one that best suits your personal style. Channel Nicole Richie and wear it with bell-bottoms, a peasant blouse, and clogs, or be inspired by Sienna Miller and combine it with cutoff jeans, a vest, and vintage cowboy boots.
