I gained a couple of pounds over the holiday season. As a result of my refusal to go up a dress size, I have been focusing my shopping excursions on accessories— mostly purses — until I shed those pesky extra pounds. Local stores that are perfect for this type of shopping, with a nice selection of jewelry and purses, include Make Good in South Park, La Bel Age in Mission Hills, and Pigment in North Park.

Meschelle Eagerton

Out and about in San Diego, I have spotted my fair share of enviable arm candy, proving that a great purse can make an outfit.

In Balboa Park, newly married Hannah Hohmeier (who maybe should've considered keeping her maiden name) wore an oversized satchel in a trendy hunter green hue. She paired her purse with neutral colors and simple jewelry, making her bag the focal point of her outfit. Hohmeier had a floral print manicure by Jamberry Nails ($15 a sheet). Hohmeier’s purse was a steal.

“She knows how to bargain shop,” her husband told me with a proud smile.

She purchased the Mystique bag for $20 at the discount retailer Marshalls. Her white, collared shirt was also an inexpensive buy from H&M. She wore a triangle necklace from Target.

Anastasia Balom

In Normal Heights, hair stylist Meschelle Eagerton wore an oversized cross-body bag purchased while vacationing in Florence.

“I’m obsessed with this jacket,” Eagerton said of the army-green Zara parka she wore. It’s her favorite wardrobe staple.

She wore American Eagle skinny jeans, Madewell bangle bracelets and a pair of sturdy, 1990s-inspired Doc Marten combat boots.

Eagerton’s favorite local shopping spot is Madewell.

In Hillcrest, Anastasia Balom browsed the racks at Urban Outfitters while carrying a multi-colored vintage purse. The bright pattern of her bag paired well with the simple, laid-back, look of her turban, t-shirt, and basic black skirt.
