This trend alert goes out to our Twitter bud @Dorie87! She tweeted us, “@TheLooksForLess can you tell me where i can get this purse or something similar? nicole richie“. Dorie, we’ve got your bag, I mean back, on this one :).

In the spirit of music festivals that have gone on non-stop all spring and summer, a trend that is catching like wildfire is the beautiful bright bohemian handbags. The common theme amongst all of these bags is the patchwork fabrics and the fully saturated hues of reds, blues, and greens with occasional hints of yellow. These handbags vary slightly in style – some are tiered messenger style bags, while others are very large and covered in fringe. Each tote brings a little peace and love into our hearts.

These bright bohemian patchwork bags are popular amongst celebrities at the forefront of the hippie-chic movement including Nicole Richie, Kate Hudson, and Sienna Miller. Other celebs that love these bags are part-time hippies, yet full time trend setters, such as Miley Cyrus and Rachel Bilson. Of course, they all carry the high end totes such as the Halston Heritage Slouchy Canvas Sac Bag and the Simone Camille Carryall embroidered cotton bag, by Designer Simone Harouche, found at for $1,860!!! All of the Steals above are under $35!
