Flavors To Follow – Bags I Am Lusting Over

A couple of my friends from childhood visited me a few weekends ago, and really got me into bags. I mean this girl always loved bags, I used to have a stand with 3 shelves that I lined with purses in my dorm room. I was a huge fan of buying cheapo knockoffs (Fucci, Fouis Vuitton, Furberry) from Asia/NYC night markets. Bargaining was my superpower, I wish it still were but it’s been awhile. Anyhow, while I’ll probably never own a real Chanel (unless I win the lottery), here are a few totally affordable bags on my wishlist.

1 Love the simplicity, size and color of this Stephanie Johnson!
2 These Cambridge satchels with it cross body style are SO in right now.
3 I literally keep spending half of my paychecks on J.Crew, and my wallet is totally wanting this purse right now.
4 It’s my dream to have a Rebecca Minkoff.  One of these days!
5 Stripes on a purse.  Rebecca Minkoff is s genius.
6 I’d also love to own a Brahmin, particularly this chevron one.  You guys, it’s chevron!!
7 So a fun yellow purse from The Style Manor!  What a great pop of color this would be on my arm.
8 Love this red color for a Brahmin bag.
9 Again, J.Crew, you are seriously twisting my arm here.
10 I am convinced Brahmin has the cutest print bags.  First chevron, now polka dots!  Which one do I pick?

 What bags are you lusting over right now?

    I love the polka-dotted Brahmin one. They are coming out with some KILLER bags lately.

    Yesterday I went to visit some Coach bags on the Plaza. I am really loving the “new” legacy bags, which are a throwback to the way Coach used to design (without all the C’s everywhere). I am lusting over a mahogany brown bag at the store.

    Number five looks really similar to my current bag, actually, but my stripes are smaller. I seriously love the pink chevron one though!

    I just checked Brahmin’s website and it is sooooo cute. I’m lusting now! Tks for the find! I’d never heard of it before.

    I’ve been all over J. Crew’s bags lately…the two on my wishlist are #3 and #9 actually! We have that in common 🙂 The rest of your picks are lovely too…too bad they just kill the wallet, right?!

    Following your blog…it’s a new fav of mine 🙂

    What a great selection of bags! I’m currently wanting colourful bags because I already have so many black ones. I LOVE that J.Crew bag with the mint green strap. . .so pretty!
