We need a shopaholics anonymous in this town. Maybe I’ll lead it? Actually no, I would fail and bring all the women down with me! Why. Can’t. I. Stop?!! I’m half kidding, I’m not that bad! Anyway, I’m always on the lookout for a great hand bag. I have a true love for Louis Vuitton but lets be honest, I can’t really justify spending that much money on a purse just because I’m craving a new one. The two I have I LOVE and I will have forever…. hopefully, unless I have to sell them to pay my mortgage!! 😉
I was searching Nordstrom Rack’s online Kate Spade event the other day and I added so many items to my cart that I got a message saying I couldn’t add anymore, that’s a sign I may have a problem! I quickly realized that even though her handbags are ADORABLE, they’re not practical for me or my lifestyle. I love a good statement bag but a.) crossbodies hurt my neck and b.) I have a toddler! That cute pastel colored purse is going to be a wreck before I leave the house and I need something large enough to fit snacks, sippy cups and extra diapers in…Not to mention 7 lip glosses and 5 packs of gum because I really do have a chewing gum addiction… I started searching around for a nice leather tote and came across some that I really I couldn’t live with out. I really like versatile bags that I can dress up or down (another reason I love Louis Vuitton). I love black handbags but they look weird on me so I typically always go for a good cognac brown color (I do this with shoes too) because it goes great with neutrals and black. Julianne Hough posted a bag on her blog a while back from here and while I was checking out the website I found this one and fell in love, plus they’re an amazing company helping to employ women living in poverty. I decided to get the chocolate brown color to really mix things up, I need to step outside of my comfort zone sometimes haha! It can be a cross body (I probably won’t wear it this way) or a shoulder bag, and I love the size, I can even fit my camera in it! You can also have them personalized for $8. The other cute totes and cross-bodies that I posted I thought would be perfect for the summer and are more reasonably priced…you’re welcome! 😉 If you have found any must-have-can’t-live-with-out bags, please share with us!
