The last thing I bought from Michael Kors was a blingy tortoise watch my high school self absolutely had to have. You were no one in my hometown without one! Since then, my sartorial tastes have shifted and elevated, but I’ve always had a soft spot for MK hidden deep down. In my honest opinion, they get far too much hate! That’s why I was beyond shook when I first laid eyes on the Bradshaw Bag, a newer silhouette that, quite frankly, is cuter than half the handbags blowing up these days. Don’t be salty because it’s true!

Of course the name Bradshaw evokes the memory of one of New York’s most iconic fictional fashionistas: Miss Carrie Bradshaw herself. And while the SJP character was known for carrying Fendi Baguettes more often than not, the silhouette of the new Bradshaw Bag pays subtle tribute to her playful-but-chic aesthetic.

The bag is MK’s own iteration of the baguette, featuring a classic ’90s shape and fold-over silhouette paired with the perfect short shoulder strap. The push-lock closure and a small charm incorporated into the strap bear the Michael Kors name without being too logo-heavy.

These bags are made of the softest leather—and like any good It Bag, there are a ton of iterations to choose from, so you can find The One that fits your personal style or start building yourself a small collection. A max price of $328 (and tons of versions currently on sale!) is a damn good price for a luxury bag, not to mention a small price to pay to serve some Carrie Bradshaw-level looks.

My personal favorites feature a woven flap that gives me major Bottega energy, but there are smooth versions, metallic versions and even studded and embellished takes to choose from, too. I love a bag with options!

Below, check out the top Bradshaw bags to snag now before they’re all over Instagram. You’ve been warned!

Bradshaw Embellished Bag in White Combo

I’m personally not into embellishments, but even I can admit the little daisy detailing on the White Combo bag is a sweet way to incorporate studs for summer.

For a year-round staple with glistening gold hardware, the Woven Bradshaw bag in classic Black is a no-brainer.

Bradshaw Woven Bag in Limelight

The Woven Bradshaw actually comes in two different shades of lime green, but I prefer slightly more pastel Limelight to vibrant Lime.
