Fashion Wishlist: Bag Lady

Okay, so I know I'm on a shopping ban right now but these bags were just too good not to share!  I caved last month and bought 7 pairs of shoes (we'll get to that in another post) and now I'm realizing how I don't have enough purses and bags.  Third world problems, I know.

Now, I've never really the type to splurge on a bag.  I've always bought cheap purses which end up falling apart on me sooner rather than later.  You get what you pay for, right?  Well, since turning 30 (still can't believe it) this year, I figured it's about time for me to start treating myself to things that are a step up from my usual.  And, while I still can't justify spending $300 on a single purse, $50-$100 seems pretty reasonable for something sturdier (and still cute) that will last me a little longer.  Plus, I think knowing it costs more that $25 will make me want to take care of it more.

I've always been a fan of structured handbags and Kate Spade continuously has me swooning over their products until I look at the price tags.  They had a surprise sale last week and even though the sale prices were much lower than regular price, I still couldn't do it.

So, I did what any smart shopper would do: I browsed the internet for similar styles.  Thankfully, I eventually stumbled upon  They have SO.  MANY.  BAGS.  I'm not even kidding, they have 31 pages of unique handbags.  Totes, backpacks, cross-body, shoulder bags, clutches, wallets...and in all sorts of colors and patterns!  I browsed through all 1,477 of them and picked my top ten favorites to share with you.  Swoon with me, won't you?

That fringe one is one of my absolute favorites!  I have a dusty beige fringe bag already, but black is my color.  And you just KNOW I am absolutely going to buy that cute little pineapple purse eventually, because how can I go to sleep at night knowing that I don't have a pineapple purse?  And that light blue color looks so luxurious, while the deep burgundy will be perfect for fall.  Sigh...

If you can't tell from my picks, I like big bags and I cannot lie.  When you have three kids, you kind of have to be ready to carry everything with you all the time.  Plus, with me being a makeup hoarder and planner addict, I need lots of space to carry 7 shades of lip stick, 3 eyeshadow  palettes, 24 colored pens, and about a pound of stickers with me everywhere I go.  You know, essentials.

So tell me, what does your bag wishlist look like?  Which ones are your faves?


  1. I love all of those bags!!! I was trying to decide if I wanted a new bag for my birthday this month but I am trying to be practical and remind myself that I will be carrying a diaper bag around soon enough and probably wont be carrying a purse near as much. It's hard!

  2. I love cross body bags these days; keeps my hands free but in my heyday of bag whoring, Gucci hobos were where it was at.
