Add a Wing to that Bag

I haven’t really done one of these posts in a while, and I don’t know why. Guess I haven’t had the time to read any magazines.. But to get back on the ball, here’s a current/upcoming trend for our handbags.

It may not be news to you, but winged bags are in for Spring. It’s not a huge change to bags, just a subtle difference. You’re going to start to see more fabric up by the zipper to create a “winged” look on the more structured handbags.

If you’re wanting to add this trend to your collection, I’ve scoured the web to find quite a few bags of the trend. There’s the high-end Prada and the lower Danielle Nicole.

So, here’s the list:

Prada – Saffiano Large Bi-Color Tote Bag, Talco/Visone – $1890

Lust Item: Chloe’s Marcie Small Calfskin Satchel

I saw this last time I was in Nordstrom and have been in love with it since. Every time I see it I just want to put it on a credit card and have it in my possession! It’s so gorgeous, all leather, and a decent size. The dimensions are: 14″W x 10 1/2″H x 4 1/2″D. Big enough for everything you need plus a book/tablet!! I love this color too. It’s called Nut, kinda funny :) The downside… it’s $1795. Maybe I’ll start saving up for it… It seems like a classy bag that could last you for a long time.

The NEW Willis Bag

As a child, I grew up with the Coach brand as the only choice if you wanted a good leather handbag. Unfortunately, as I grew up, and got to the age where I started needing a purse, the iconic Coach leather bags were beginning to be a thing of the past. I remember when Coach had a few simple colors to choose from: Red, Navy, Black, British Tan, and maybe a couple others here and there. Those colors were their staples. They had a few styles to choose from and those few colors. That was it. Plain and simple. They focused on quality, and we all know, the more simple the handbag, the more outfits it goes with.

You’ll remember, a few years ago, they started coming out with more canvas styled bags, rather than leather, with C’s covering the fronts, or embellishments of sorts, and crazy colorful prints. They were obviously marketing to a new clientele. I don’t blame them. You’ve got to try new things. They started getting a younger crowd as the younger crowd is the one’s who love flashy bags (most of the time), beat them up and need to replace them more often. It all made sense. They were looking for a higher profit margin and to please the youngins at the same time.

The Cheap Birkin?

If you know your handbags, then you’ve heard of the infamous Birkin Bag by Hermès. And.. you’ve either secretly coveted this exceptional handbag or flat-out wished you carried one. While browsing handbags, I ventured to Aldo’s website and found a remarkably similar style in their catalogue… and for only $55! I’m not one for going with knockoffs, but these look awfully similar…

Those three compared to the one and only Birkin. They’re not identical by any means, but paying $50, its a decent resemblance.

What do you think? Are the three Aldo handbags close enough to the Hermès Birkin that you’ll be visiting Aldo?

Saddle Up!

Saddle bags. They’re super cute and actually functional. Yes, you won’t be able to carry your whole life in them like what you do with your go-to oversized purse, but you can fit your wallet, keys, phone, lipgloss and a few other things I it. It makes it easier at the checkout line too when you can actually find your wallet. Trust me, we’ve all been there where we’re digging around trying to find out wallet which is also huge while the checker and line behind you is all thinking the same thing:”do you seriously need that big of a purse!”

Anyway, saddle bags.. You’ll love them. You’ll find that a variety of designers are making them apart of their lines. From the Jason Wu target collection to Louis Vuitton, they’re in abundance.
