ALDO Opdyke SatchelTo say faux fur will once again have a moment this fall is a bit like saying summer was a little bit hot this year. It's poised to be a favorite once again - and because it's so classic, it deserves the attention. One way to work a hint of the furry stuff into your everyday look is via a structured satchel like this. The flap is covered in plush, synthetic fur that just begs to be touched, while a relatively modest (though not quite inconspicuous) gold-tinged tassel brings the drama. For this price - and for how much you're bound to carry it - it's certainly worth a glance.
