Fall Favorites Friday – Handbags

by thelifestylelady

Howdy Y’all,

Have I mentioned before my small penchant for all things handbag and purse? Now I am one fussy customer in this field and my passion although expensive is very contained. I don’t love that many bags but when I do I fall hard. Are you the same way? I have some lovely bags, but I am less inclined to use them currently as sippy cup stains and wet wipe marks are not the easiest thing to remove from leather interiors. So I wanted to keep this fairly brief but below are pictures of my dream closet of bags!

Leave me a comment of what I have missed out or other bags I should be salivating over!!

Happy Weekend.

Ta Ta for now


Dream Collection

Bags from left to right:-

Mulberry Bayswater  I confess to owning two of these. One I bought second-hand and the other a gift and  I can quite honestly say they get better with age. The craftsmanship and the quality of the leather is everything you would expect from a company like Mulberry. I own a few other Mulberry products and have never been disappointed. I would like to own the chocolate color one day, who wouldn’t? Brown is so versatile and I find a more flattering, softer option to the ever popular black. I have used mine so much, it’s small enough to use as an everyday purse but large enough to use as airplane carry on (pre-child) or work bag to carry iPad etc.The design is timeless and would suit everyone. I will use mine for a good while yet and I hope to pass down to Little L, they really are an inheritance piece.

Prada Saffiano Lux Double-Zip Tote This bag is one of my newest desire, there are many other designers who have similar styles. Tory Burch springs to mind. I really love the look of this Prada bag. So elegant and smart. Would be a great accompaniment to a working closet. I am told the zip compartments hold an iPad perfectly. Not sure how versatile it would be for a young mummy but I could stare at it thinking of a past self. The colors this bag comes in are beautiful also. The blue is stunning. Maybe one day.

Hermes 30cm Cognac Tan Leather Birkin Bag This to me is the bag to end all bags. I am in love with everything about it. It says simply class and elegance. The color Cognac Tan for me also says class and this is the most timeless piece. It’s simply a shame that the price tag is so extreme. A gal can dream or win the lotto.

Chloe Drew Mini Bag This another LL newbie but I love it. To me it’s a more modern-day take on the Chanel classic. It comes in a variety of colors but I liked the cream. Would be a beautiful evening bag or summer bag. I love the gold accessories.  It is a small bag but looks like it could hold a little more than a credit card. Do hope Chloe will keep this style around for some time yet.

LV Neverfull GM The perfect tote, comes in all LV prints. Timeless piece. Great size and could be the excellent compromise piece as a diaper bag, practicality vs style for those mummies who sometimes want to feel a little more stylish. Also great if like me you want to cart everything but the kitchen sink around with you. I do not own one but have always wanted to. If your thinking of investing in a designer bag you can’t ever go to wrong with any of the LV collection.

Chanel Classic Medium Double Flap Bag Similar to the Birkin but more affordable but we are still speaking big bucks. This bag is a timeless classic. I think Audrey Hepburn, Princess Grace, Princess Diana the list goes on of classy women who would have owned a bag like this. To me this is the epitome of evening bags. The gold chain, the quilted black leather and the elegance associated with a Chanel makes this an absolute staple amongst the classy rich and famous. It makes me think of St John clothing and ladies who know what style, sophistication and elegance really is.
