I've never owned a logo bag--save for my mini Liz Claiborne, gifted at age 5--but lately...I don't know...that Céline bag....

Be forewarned: Logo bags are back.

In the office, I've been obsessing over Kate's vintage navy Gucci with a red and green grosgrain stripe. Britt, the queen of simplicity, even admitted to coveting that vintage Gucci monogram.

I've always had a soft spot for Louis Vuitton's weekender, which Gwyneth used to carry around in the '90s, back when logo bags were more than kosher--they were a requisite.

But in general, logos still feel like they belong to a fast, in-your-face crowd of which I don't belong. And yet the small Céline boston bag, which rings in at $770, and comes in navy, tan or burgundy canvas, keeps calling my name. Britt thinks--and I must concur--that the reason I'm so taken with the bag, other than the fact it was approved by Phoebe, is because it's so much cheaper than Céline's all-leather satchel. I must subconsciously think it's a bargain.

Regardless, I do think that, with all this minimalist fashion, logos may yet again have a place in our accessories wardrobe. Will you pony up for a monogram?
