The World According to Jess

It's not often we get a good laugh from a handbag, but the World According to Jess collection is filled with witty, stylish, and sometimes just plain funny carryalls, handbags, clutches, travel bags, and dog carriers.

The Jess in question, Jessica Alpert-Goldman, is a 28-year-old designer who has wanted to be a force in fashion since she was eight. Judging by the exuberance of the designs, she's got her wish; the world according to Jess is a joyful place to be.

Handbags average $200 and you can buy them on the website or at select stores around town (the website has all the details). More Jess at
