Handbag Obsession

1. MARC BY MARC JACOBS Sophie Leather Satchel $480
2. Rebecca Minkoff Studded Heavy Metal Flame Studded Leather Satchel $495
6. MICHAEL Michael Kors Heidi Leather Clutch $178

While I've always loved handbags, they've historically taken a backseat to jewelry, clothes, and shoes for me. Until now. Recently I've been noticing countless remarkable bags that seem to be calling my name (most of which I can't answer due to the prices of said bags). I'm determined not to make an impulse purchase on this item and have decided to continue looking and eventually put one on my Christmas list. I realize Christmas is still over 3 months away, but it's never too early to start making a list, right? What handbags are you dreaming about right now?

I love these bags too!! The top shop one is probably my favorite and I love the second MJ bag. I am a sucker for a bold color when it comes to accessories. I actually just picked up a version of number 2. Since bags can be used everyday I felt like it was worth the splurge, but I admire your desire to wait till Christmas. 3 months will fly by!

Oh I've always been a baglady, LOVE expensive handbags more than anything else. Well, apart from diamonds, maybe :-) I quite like the Rebecca Minkoff bag but on my wishlist - which I won't be getting any time soon - is an Hermes Birkin... I'll just dream on...

I am addicted to handbags. I love that fourth one. I've been going down to the thrift shop and it's got a lot of really great vintage branded items.

Ooh, the Topshop Medium Leather Buckle Satchel. I have wanted that bag since I first saw Betty of Le Blog de Betty toting it about - love!! :)

Fifth Sparrow said...

Love the TopShop bag, looks reminiscent of the PS satchel I've been drooling over (and wishing I had an extra $1500 for!). Cant' wait to see which one you go for! xx

Valerie-great selections..I am thinking about adding either an olive color or a brown bag to my collection this winter. I can't decide. I love doing these types of posts b/c I know my husband reads my posts..now he should have no problem figuring out what to buy me for christmas, birthdays etc..

Erica said...

I want them all!!!

Annie said...

Nice choices! I think #5 is my fav here. Never too early to start making a list ;)

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Love these choices! My faves this season are the Dior Libertine, Chloe Darla, Chloe Marcie, Stella's Falabella Fold Over, Hermes Constance & YSL Roady Hobo. Think I'll have to narrow it down, don't u? :)

Torrie said...

Love it! Definitely NOT too early for a Christmas list:). And how nice! My favorite on this list is the least expensive!! I do really need a new handbag, but I'm not sure if I should go for brown or black... I think brown:).

Lisa Griffin said...

I've never been a bag girl, but recently the marc jacobs bags are making me reconsider! i think when i do splurge it will be on a deep tan shade that will match everything!

Marcie said...

Bags have alwasy been my weakness. I don't have very many to show though because I love the pricey ones! Right now I am loving anything Marc Jacobs.

Love the top row of your selections. Of course they are the expensive ones.

Gabriel said...

I will alert Santa. I think you are going to have to be very specific for him, he doesn't really know handbags.

Nikki said...

I love all of your choices Valerie. I still have my eye on the Exhibitor tote from J.Crew. I can't stop thinking about it!

Katie said...

2 and 5 are awesome but I love them all!

this free bird said...

Valerie! #4 is $100? $100!! I think it's my fave!! When does this happen??

xoxo,
Carrie
ps-thx for checking in to my blog while i was away. i appreciate it!

Poppies and Sunshine said...

I do love that clutch!!

PursuitOfLLT said...

Love #5 and #4! And I actually saw that exact Rebecca Minkoff bag at Nordstrom Rack for less than half!! Think it was like $229

I always love bags. I actually just got the cutest red bag from H&M for $18 and I found it shocking because #1 I loved it and #2 I usually only like expensive bags. It looks a lot like the MJ crossbody. Maybe that's why I loved it!

Hi Val,

So sorry for being a bit MIA... I'd usually go for MK but from this list, Topshop!


Thank you sooo much for your vote again!!!

Xoxo

Zabrinah said...

Best wishes from one blogger to another,

Gina said...

It is NEVER to early to make a list!
i think this is a great idea; lately i've been trying really hard to avoid impulse spending.
We can still look at pretty things though, right?

Josie said...

Please, I started my Christmas list in July, haha. I love numbers 4 and 6; they're too pretty! I do love a fab bag.

I love Number 4 the best. Honestly at this point, I mostly only do bags with long straps. I used to work in retail and sell handbags specifically and the ones that usually got returned the most were ones with short straps, because people got annoyed that they fell off their shoulders all the time. I usually only do short straps/chains when I know I'm going to do a clutch.

hiyaluv said...

wow i can't choose! i definitely need a new fall purse:)

Eek! I'm a handbag girl who just can't afford them! A Mulberry satchel is on my wishlist. As is eternally a classic Chanel (medium size) and the LV Alma in Epi Leather.
