We might cry over spilled milk, but we shed happy tears of joy over spilled paint, thanks to Moth and Crow’s new Marsupial Fold-Over Shopper handbag. Crafted by Capitol Hillster Dawn Smithson, the supple bag has welt pockets (à la its mammalian namesake) and, thanks to detachable straps, can be sported in four different ways, including as a chic fold-over clutch. Each bag is different; our favorite is created from a splatter-painted lambskin hide.

Available in different colors and styles; $700 at mothandcrow.com.
