Confessions of a Handbag Hoarder #1

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I am obsessed with handbags. When I’m in a store, I always gravitate towards the bags – and when I have money to spend, you can pretty much guarantee I’ll buy a bag with it. The obsession goes way back, as you can see…

My handbag obsession led me to a great idea for a new blog series: a round-up of some of the best purses on trend currently for sale, categorized by a save vs splurge scale. Of course, I won’t be doing this weekly, but I will bring it back every so often when I notice a complete change in the handbag market! I’m super excited to get this rolling – not only to satisfy my handbag obsession but to help be your own personal shopper!

Powder blue seems to be everywhere for spring – and I’m all for it. From left to right, the bags get pricier – with of course, a Phillip Lim Pashli at the bottom right signifying a huge splurge. I’m not quite sure who reads my blog – and at that what kind of money any given reader has to spend – so I figured I’d go for it and include one bag that will REALLY set you back.

Like I’ve mentioned before, I’m big on wearing neutral colors. As a result, I absolutely love buying fun colored bags to spice up my look. For others, I know colored bags can be a huge investment – luckily, Target and Forever21 have some amazing options!

What’s your take on wearing colored bags? 

xoxo, Jamie
