When it comes to spending a whole bunch of our pretty pennies on our wardrobe, you can bet that we'll be scouring the stores (and the interwebs) for stand-out accessories that are timeless yet still pack a punch: after all, who wants to drop their hard-earned cash on something that nobody will notice? If you've got a membership to luxe e-commerce site Moda Operandi, then you've already become up-close and personal with the gorgeous Marc Jacobs' accessories that just went on sale. Simple shapes and colors so bold and beautiful they make us gasp characterize the designer's resort '12 handbag collection, the prices of which range between $585 and $3,795 .Whether you're window-shopping or making an investment, click through the slideshow to see which bags the head honchos at Moda Operandi are head-over-heels for and why. Sigh, this is what dreams are made of, isn't it?

Lauren Santo Domingo (Creative Director and Co-Founder), The Bowery Satchel Bag: "Orange is the color I'm counting on to pull me out of winter and right into Resort. This bag is perfect for a weekend away, I'll take it with me to Venice for the Biennale next June. It's the ideal size to carry on the airplane but also to tote around the city once I get there."

Heather Severs (Jewelry and Accessories Director), The Violet Handbag: "Color blocking is all over the runways and I love the trickle down into accessories. I can already see this bag going with me everywhere next Spring. It's just the kind of unique piece I look for to spice up white jeans and a tee or a simple sheath dress."

Aslaug Magnusdottir (CEO and Co-Founder), The Khaki Tote: "This bag will fit all my everyday items including my computer and a pair of heels but is still unique because of the mixed materials. I love the combination of metallic croc and leather, it's definitely not something you see in a typical everyday tote."

Hayley Bloomingdale (Editorial and Social Media Manager), The Fluo Lace iPad Case: "I just got a new iPad and am finding I can't live without it! It's perfect for traveling and the neon lace is such a great combination. I love the canvas insert that protects from scratches and in this color I can pretty much guarantee it won't get lost in my weekend bag."
