Ushered in by the resurgence of the ’70s in our wardrobes for fall, the new it bag is the saddle bag.
The saddle bag has been spotted on several of our favorite fashion blogs, including Aimee Song, and the bag is a throwback to the bygone of days of bell bottoms and suede. Originally inspired by the bags that were attached to the side of a saddle, bicycle or motorcycle, a saddle bag is the perfect combination of function and style.
Yes, saddle bags also refer to excess fat on your hips and thighs, but trust us these are saddle bags you want close to your waist.
While the Chloe ‘Drew’ crossbody bag Song was rocking on her blog is definitely out of our price range, we scoured the Internet for the best bags strapped with buckles for the perfect accessory to take on the ’70s. From Nasty Gal to Topshop, you’re options are endless at any budget.

Photo Shoot & Fashion Show Tips
"As a photographer assisting or shooting, I have seen colorful nails ruin a photo or cause the photographer to avoid a shot all together because the model had fingernail polish that just threw everything off. Yes photoshop could probably correct the problem, but...you don't want to rely on that. Natural is always better unless your nail color is a planned part of the shoot/concept."
