27 Feb Spring Bags, What’s Your Style?
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.
