Spring HandBags 2015 : Splurge or Save


IMG_6696It is no secret I love handbags. I am more of a satchel girl as I often like a structured look. There are so many pretty looks out there and great choices, let’s look at what is popular for spring. One of my favorites is my #Brahmin Handbag with its rich texture and blue hue for the spring.

Here are some handbags that I really love. You know I love the Kate Spade “Beau” bag, as I have it in black. There are some pretty bags that I love  thought I would choose some lovely spring colors and varied styles for those of you looking for spring bags :- So many choices!!

I realize what is to splurge to one person may not be to another, I am just generalizing.So, I hope you like the selection

1. Kate Spade Hot pink “Beau” bag ( similar KS) ( you know I have this in black and love it) Some other Great Kate Spade bags: Pretty green floral,

2.YSL Red bag: Adore this! Love the texture. Everyone needs a red bag! This is a want !

3. Chloe: Pale pink  bag: Love the color and quality

4.Mulberry Cream Yellow Bag: Love the color, very soft for spring

5. Chanel White Lace bag: Need I say more? Nostalgia and Femininity at Its Best!

6  Brahmin: A similar blue periwinkle color DOME bag. Love the color!

7 Ted Baker: A Floral bag is something that is great for spring. Have a solid color outfit, or want to mix prints, this is perfect! He is one of my favorite designers and his clothes are amazing as well.

This is the most reasonable bag of the bunch!


Some SAVE options

2.Bottom Left: LIMITED ( $37)

3.Top Right: ALDO ($60)

4. Bottom Right ALDO ($45)

Others I liked:.

Rebecca Minkoff coral quilted purse

You know I am a handbag girl. I love great quality, texture and color. I would love to add a new Balenciaga Bag in a rich red, or the above YSL, but medical costs are not cheap! Have to wait.

Your staples are a black, red, cream bag and for spring there are so many lovely pastels, perforated bags and  rich tones. Brahmin is all about quality and texture, alligator print, B Bags are light, color rich bags, Kate Spade has fun textures and prints as well as spring inspired colors. Rebecca Minkoff has lovely bags at very reasonable price points.

I will be doing a post on some of my favorite clutches soon, from quirky and fun, to dressy, classic and casual. So look out for this!


Which do you like?   Are you a handbag girl? Any particular colors or textures you are looking for, for spring?

Have a great weekend!

      Hi Monica,
      I think I am the opposite, I always go for color. Glad you like the selection. I would love the red YSL bag.

    Hmmm…tough choices. I honestly love them all! I think you should splurge on the Chloe bag! It would look great in any season really. But if you were to save then I love the light blue bag or the fun perforated one! You could always buy two save options!

      Enjoy your weekend and I look forward to seeing you for THT linkup xx
