I BOUGHT A BAG...


You may recall that one of the tasks on my 101 in 1001 list was to invest in a "grown-up" handbag and if you follow me on Twitter you know that I think I've found the one! I bought this bag during Tory Burch's friends and family sale over the weekend and I can hardly wait for it to show up on my doorstep. Hopefully it's absolutely perfect and you'll be seeing it in many outfit posts to come ;) What's your everyday bag? Is it a purchase you saved up for? Do any of you carry the bag I just ordered? Fill me in!

I scored a Kate Spade leather shopper tote at the surprise sale in August. It ended up being half price, which I couldn't pass up for a great caremel-colored leather bag. It's the perfect size for all my work stuff!

This is a GREAT bag choice! My first "grown-up" bag was a Kate Spade sample sale pick, which still hurt my heart because I'd never paid over $40 for a bag before...well...a year later, I'm a bit of a handbag addict and only my budget keeps me from having a full collection! I even have a Pinterest board devoted to handbags (not all pricey and designer though!)

So glad that you got it!

Mine is the neverfull from Louis Vuiton, that i just got. I love it and have been dreaming about it for some time. I love the one you got also.

Love the bag! Such a pretty color.

Most of my good bags are Christmas gifts, come to think of it. I guess I have not really had to save up because of that! I did save up to buy a Coach bag at the outlet mall, right after college. I remember it being such a big deal even though it was on a ridiculous sale, but I had no money at that point. I still have it & its getting a bit beat up, but I was so proud of having something that wasn't from Target!

I'm still waiting for my big-girl bag, haha. Before I turn 30 for sure! I've always wanted a vintage Gucci but now I really want that gray Celine bag I've seen everywhere. But I'd settle for Kate Spade.

Katie Cramer said...

That is a great investment bag! And completely timeless!

So cute and perfect for you! I think I'll finally bite the bullet and get a "grown-up" bag when I graduate. I've always loved the Rebecca Minkoff MAB, but some of the TB and Kate Spade ones are mighty tempting...If only we could have them all!

bonjour, i'm rebecca! said...

...enjoy your sweet bag, it's perfectly YOU! cheers to adding "grown-up" to your wardrobe,,,

my everyday bag is one I passed up on in Target. It's faux snake skin by Merona. I am not into big bags in the least bit. I'm happy small cross body bags are trendy and I hope it lasts a few more years as I hate carrying things. (garbage and groceries included). But once in Goodwill, I noticed a faux snakeskin bag with the tags still on it. It was the same one from Target, for $4 bucks. It fits my real purse, breakfast & lunch for work, and magazines. Sometimes even flats if I'm wearing heels that day.
