Pack it up: Memorial Day

The cutest bags for your getaway

Arriving in style for vacation doesn't start with the clothes you pack, it starts with the bag. We've rounded up a few little options perfect for toting your whatnots.

Brother's has bags big and small but it's the vivid little makeup bags that caught our eye. In fresh summer colors, they're perfect for tossing in that black hole you call a purse. Bonus: Easy to spot in bright green and sunshine yellow.

Red Arrow Workshop folks have a truly innovative eye for marrying form and function and this time they didn't look to anyone else to make it happen. They're whipping up these perfectly-sized new backpacks that are cool enough for him and cute enough for her. Great for toting all you need and leaving behind all you don't.

For the hippie gals heading for holiday, we love this weathered cross body bag from Shoe La La. The beautiful leather and little flap are great for long days shopping.
