Carry It in Style
In addition to everyday concerns (a mother of three boys is used to problem solving), Becky O’Neil considers such conundrums as: Button or bow? Shoulder strap or two handles? Fabric handle … or plastic or bamboo? Her nascent line of handbags uses everything from silks to cottons to twills to corduroys, and appeals to the eye as well as the hand. We like the intaglio style ($75, below) because of its retro sensibility, perfect for seashore, mall, or just to-and-fro with the kids.
