Confessions of a Bag Lady

Like most of you, I wear many hats (namely, crowns and floppy sun hats). But there's one particular title I wear with great pride and that's carryall connoisseur. Sounds fancy and official, doesn't it? Who else out there finds great delight in a fabulous handbag, clutch, or satchel? Does your bag have to meet any requirements (size, color, number of pockets, etc.)? Call me a floozy, but as long as it meets my definition of cute, I'll more than likely fall for any and all bags. I know in an instant whether or not it's an Ashley kinda handbag, and I'll do anything to make it part of my collection. Pardon the MTV Cribs imagery, but one day I'd love to have a small closet devoted to my favorite accessory. And while I typically scour the sales or splurge on pieces from my favorite stores (J.Crew, Kate Spade, Anthropologie, etc.), I was pleasantly surprised by some of the latest creations from Fossil. Their spring totes and satchels are killing it.* I might just have to add one of these to my collection. Which bag would you choose?

I'm off to begin sketching the blueprints for my imaginary carryall closet...
P.S. *There are some phrases such as "killing it" that you try and you instantly regret. I think I'll save this one for the hipsters. Oh well, it was worth a shot.
Pin It!

  2. You had me at handbags... I'm obsessed with them and my collection grows and grows. Love the coral satchel!

  3. Thanks for the love, my fellow bag ladies!
