Would You Carry A Clear Bag?

03/06/2007 at 03:32 PM ET

When we noticed designers like Oscar de la Renta (left) sending clear bags down their Spring 2007 runways, we thought they were great accessories for the beach, vacation and hanging by the pool. But do you really want everyone to see what’s inside your bag every day? That’s where cute makeup cases come in — to conceal your personal belongings. Try these striped black and white travel cases from sephora.com ($15-$35), or this Very Sexy velvet finish case from victoriassecret.com ($10). For a designer look, get the Louis Vuitton monogrammed cosmetic case at eluxury.com ($240). We have also rounded up some clear bags for you, from the Oscar’s big splurge to a cute and cheap option from Target. But tell us: Would you carry a clear bag?

I like this. I just bought a clear backpack (the kind really meant for high school kids) and I plan to use it for everyday. I’ll just wrap my wallet/checkbook in a pretty scarf and I already have a colorful pretty makeup bag.

I usually just carry a sunglasses case, sunscreen, my Franklin classic sized organizer and maybe a small book of choice. I never throw hygiene in the bottom of my bag, so its not an issue. We’ll see if I get comments/looks/stares!!
