bags bags bags



I'm not normally a bag obsessive, and I very rarely buy any. In fact, I used a £6 number from primark for about 6 months, and now I'm using last year's white bag. But, every so often I get a bag obsession, and right now I have a couple, and none of them are cheap.

Ultimate wishlist: a black chanel 2.55. I'm stalking them on ebay at the moment, but even I know I can't have one. Maybe when I get a promotion. It would have to be a serious promotion though. Loving them worn crossed over the body with hoodies and converse. Only snag is that I've never seen one in real life, and nowhere in Edinburgh sells them.

Grown up love: mulberry make fabulous, classic bags. I don't do the whole "chloe this season, balenciaga the next" thing, and this mulberry bag just screams classic, I will look great in 20 years to me. Wonderful .

Strange logo-ed love: Faran at Fashionista posted ages ago about her new LV pochette. At the time I was like "ew! logo-crazy!", but strangely, a little voice at the bag of my head was curious. And it still is. I love the idea of something tiny holding my keys, phones, and money that I can just move from bag to bag. I love its teeniness, its size.

What's strange is that I used to be crazy about prada bags, and right now they are leaving me cold.

Hi there, I really like your blog!
Which Prada bags do you mean? I don't know why - but I can't resist the washed leather hobo bags....
But anyway - the Mulberry is still perfect and timeless. I'm using it in travel size :-)

oh yes chanel is timeless - definitely on my wishlist. It's funny though, most recently I've been using a $2 bag and a $1 clutch I found at goodwill more than any of my higher-end bags (one in particular has been sitting in its dustbag for months)

my sister always finds gems in thrift shops, but I never have such luck. Sigh...
