    A chick’s standby satchel speaks volumes about her style, and this bag collaboration is getting extra personal (in a totally awesome way!).

    You can start ordering these funky-cool carryalls (which are custom-made in Lala) as you fill up on sake and powdered donuts at this weekend's launch party. Heads up, though, these beauties (which you can see in our slideshow) are limited edition, so even if you've got date plans this Saturday night, we suggest you make it your mission to incorporate Iko Iko into the itinerary.

    Where: Iko Iko, 931 North Fairfax Avenue (near Romaine Street); 323-719-1079.
