Handbag Dreamin'

One of the more indulgent items on my 101 in 1001 list is to buy my first "grown-up" handbag. I'm on a bit of a shopping hiatus with the impending launch of my new boutique but I do hope to "invest" in the near future...



Are you the type to shell out for the bag of your dreams? What are you coveting these days?

Ummm I love all of these. Thanks for making me lust after some handbags! May be needing to make a purchase here today!

I'll always make the 'investment' as I like to call it, but I will also admit that I was too chicken to make the purchase of the Jumbo Flab bag when I was at the Chanel store...still regret not buying it, there is always next time!

I absolutely love my Hamilton bag from MK. It has been the best investment!

I felt the same way about having a grown-up handbag! my tory burch bag I got for christmas fit the bill perfectly! I love the michael kors bags - I stopped in the store the other day and was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked a lot of their stuff!

What you should do is sign up for the Bloomingdales email list (if you haven't already). They send 25% off coupons all the time, which are valid on Michael Kors handbags. I'm waiting for them to send one so I can get another watch!

Investing in a grown up bag was on my list too and last week I finally bought one. It arrives today. Can't wait! It's a black Givenchy bag.

I am I am, I have a plan this summer to go to Kate Spade after I am done working and finally get a real wallet!

That J.Crew bag is lovely and a much less scary investment!:)

renée said...

love that the jcrew bag looks a LOT like a celine bag, but much better for the wallet!

Love the hot pink satchel. There's something about it's clean lines with the fun pop of color.

this is SO on my list too. i've been dreaming of a real designer leather handbag since the first time i walked into a louis vuitton store as a 10 year old.

best of luck with the boutique launch. so excited for you!

I'm with you on needing my first "adult" handgbag. It's so nice not having to lug around textbooks anymore in my purse, so it's time for an upgrade! Love that pink Michael Kors bag.

What do you consider grown up bag? By cost, function, aesthetics? I'm willing to shell out a certain amount for quality work bags that I can use day in and day out, but still over time these eventually wear out with heavy use. Love your picks!

Gorgeous !! I would much rather have a few really nice bags over a bunch of not as nice bags ! I saved up and got a miu miu for my past birthday...LOVE it ! But now I want a Celine or Prada tote.

I love the Michael Kors bags!

Adelyn said...

oh man! Those are beautiful! I would go for the brown Michael Kors one for sure!

i DEFINITELY believe in investing in a designer handbag - you'll have it forever and you'll always remember how hard you worked to save up for it.

i was lucky enough to receive a black patent leather chanel for college graduation. now im a working girl and trying to save up for something a bit edgier - the alexander wang rocco duffel!

Leslie said...

I'd love a new handbag! Once my husband and I pay off our student loans, I'm going to lobby for that purchase. :)

Drew {Coral Cafe} said...

The top row is definitely my favorite!!

Viviana said...

I'm all about the Reed Krakoff boxer bag right now. Obsessed!

Ashley {styleash} said...

That Reed Krakoff bag is amazing! I'm planning on using my tax return to purchase one :)

meghan said...

The Jcrew one you put on there I posted about yesterday, and I think it looks so much like the Celine bags. If only I could afford a bag like the Celine (I think they're like $1500-$2000 or something?). And, yes, I love nice bags. I would definitely splurge on one. Without a doubt. Nice bags look nice, and they last forever.

Ummmm no joke, I though the J.Crew bag might be some kind of new Celine design. Was the Crew inspired by that Celine that's everywhere? Either way, she's beaut!

sampenner said...

I like all your pretty choices. I am impressed with your spending hiatus- I need to enter one myself! :)

safe to say i'd love them all in my closet! great picks...the RK bag is esp to die for.

Jessica Rowe {The Aestate} said...

You always find the best stuff, I want them all!!

sarah | chevrons and stripes said...

I'm coveting EVERYTHING in Jerome Dreyfuss' collection - they're all so quirky and chic in the most functional way! I have one but I'm already dreaming of my next...

Carly {a simple affair} said...

The new J. Crew bag is stunning--reminds me of Chloe. I've splurged just once, and the Louis Vuitton Neverfull is on my mind once again.

Megan Abigail Chandler said...

I love a barrel bag really ... and is it just me or did it dawn on anyone else we're one month away from the Design Darling boutique!!!!!!!!!!!!

JORDAN said...

I absolutely love that Reed Krakoff bag. As for me, I've got my fingers crossed that someone will give me a nice bag for graduation - the real world requires a real bag! Rebecca Minkoff's MAB has been at the top of my list for years!

Vanessa {vanillaandroseblog.com} said...

I'm not one to hold back when it comes to purchasing handbags but if they're too expensive I usually hold back! I change my mind/style way too much when it comes to what I carry so I hate to spend that much on a bag I may not be able to commit to!! These are all gorgeous though!!
