I could honestly say, my love for handbags, probably began about 10 years ago. I know it wasn’t in high school or even college, and I am seeing a ton of 20 somethings wearing Celine bags or carrying Louis Vuitton. At that age, I would have probably been able to afford Louis Buitton. The only bag I remember carrying in high school was my “brown bag”, not from Bloomingdales, either, literally a brown bag for lunch! I remember when I bought years ago a Kenneth Cole NY bag, I got at TJMaxx for $65 dollars, and I thought that was a bit much.

Times and tastes have changed, haven’t they? I think I really wasn’t into handbags as much because I loved shoes. Prior to my disease, I loved looking at shoes, wearing heels, doing on-line shopping on Zappos, Since I can’t wear stilletos or much of a heel I don’t look at shoes as much. I do like handbags, but limit how many there as well. I may get tired of looking at one, want to sell it, and then the hunt for a lovely bag begins again.( I think my husband wishes I would go back to shoes:-)) I don’t go overboard, but am looking at spring colors and spring bags. I have to say some of my favorite bag designers are Rebecca Minkoff ( have a peach quilted one of hers I am dying to take out!), Louis Vuitton, really like Celine bags I see, and Kate Spade. I tend to go for a more structured bag, but usually have bags with straps because of my illness. I LOVE pretty pastels or bright purples like the Kate Spade one shown here, right now I would love a blush/pale pink bag.I think bags can make an outfit stand out, add a pop of color, and can be that “pick me up” for the new spring wardrobe. Although some women go for more designer handbags ( guilty!), there are plenty of bags that are lovely that won’t break your bank.

What is your style? What color do you want this spring? Would love to hear what you like!

Here are some I have been looking at. 

Kate Spade,( 2 Park Avenue Bow Bag) Aldo( Smolt) ,Aldo( Myrum: light green)  Kate Spade, Brahmin ( Mini La Scala Mint), Rebecca Minkoff,  Brahmin( similar)

    With the exception of this younger generation it must be something we go through when we get older because I don’t remember being concerned with handbags up until a few years ago. At that time I got into this kick of matching my handbags with my shoes. Lately I’ve been liking mint colored accessories although I don’t own anything in this color I think it’s so pretty. The handbags you selected here are very pretty.

      Hi Stephanie
      I agree I don’t think I thought about handbags then either, I started looking at bags when I couldn’t wear high heels . The mint colored bag I listed is a brahmin and I have the link there. I have a bit of a collection

    Hi Pam, you probably have noticed the Louis Vuitton Speedy I have on some of my posts, it was funny, I sold a smaller version of it, and then had seller’s regret, so ended up getting a slightly larger one for Christmas last year. There are some that are reasonable. I like purple in handbags too, especially love the top one I posted, Kate Spade.( might have to save for it!) Your bag color can be worn year round 🙂

    I do not know that I will EVER own a Louis! Though it would be fun to…but I do love handbags. You selected some pretty ones here. I own one purple bag and I really love it.
