Handbag Collection

I love bags. Then again I love planners. I also LOVE the Steelers. I have of love to go around. I  shared my Declutter 101: Handbags & Accessories and I wanted to share a closer look at my handbag collection. A lot of the bags that I decided to keep are not only staples that will last me for, but a few are designer as well. Take a look at my beauties below:

THE NEW YOU-2THE NEW YOU

All the bags that I decided to keep are bags that I interchange frequently. Usually when I use a bag I’ll use it for a few months before switching to another. The Victoria Secret’s bags each have a different purpose. The larger black one I love to throw everything into. You need days like those. The Pink one is for the beach (Nicki Minaj voice), and the black and pink one I use for a variety of things.

I could never have enough black bags. Each one has a different purpose. There’s my quilted one which is my go to for a night out. Then there’s my drawstring bucket bag that I love, but I don’t wear as much simply because it doesn’t fit my planner. It’s become more of a weekend bag for running errands.

Lastly, my designer bags. The Louis Vuitton and Coach bags were my moms and I could never give those away. I wear the Coach one more frequently opposed to the Louis Vuitton one. When it comes to designer bags that I would like to add to my collection I would like the Michael Kors ‘Selma’ in black and yellow and the Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM in the Monogram print. Other than that I’m pretty happy with my bags. You do not have to spend a lot of money on a purse and yes, I wear all of my bags. No sense in keeping everything pretty. Use what you have.

Fashion Forward Friday [V.17]: National Handbag Day

Happy Friday! It’s crazy that there’s only about two and half months left in 2014. While scrolling through Instagram, I came across a post that said today, October 10th, is National Handbag Day. What better way to celebrate the day than with showing off my three of my most used handbags.

In my handbag collection I have downsized a lot and some are high end and a lot are low end. In purchasing bags now I like to add pops of color, but I also focus on the structure to see just how durable it will be. Despite all the handbags I have the three above are the ones I interchange the most. During college I had no interest in smaller bags, but being on the go on a daily basis I use them constantly. If I ever need anything more, I’ll just toss it into one of my bigger purses.
