I have discussed my surplus of handbags in the past—the situation has reached problem proportions, storage-wise—but still I keep looking for new ones to love. And right now, the number one object of my affections is this crossbody bag from a newish brand I like called Little Liffner. I love the way a chain handle looks, but they’re hell on your shoulder if you carry around a lot, so I like that this one also has a leather strap too. It’s also gorgeous in the brown.
This saddle bag has more hardware that I usually like on a saddle bag, but it’s very lovely hardware.
I just like this one because it’s such a good blue, and blue bags are a fun alternative to black.
And I like this APC bucket bag because of its subtle and stylish mix of suede and leather.
Is it crazy to buy a bag just because you love its strap? Because I really, really love the strap on this Isabel Marant bag.
A slouchy suede tote, also in a very good blue.
I like the nude/pinkish tone on this Allsaints option.
This messenger bag looks a lot like another bag by the same designer (Annabel Ingall) that I’ve shown above, but this one is bigger and I think they’re both pretty great in subtly different ways.
A sturdy hobo bag for toting your life around in.
This tote is pretty simple, but I find it quite chic.
And this drawstring tote is a seriously good buy.
I like the contrasting strap on this reversible number (the inside is black).
You could do worse than to invest in a Jerome Dreyfuss bag—this crossbody bag has zippers to make it expandable, which is handy, and they’re always so well-made.
This bag is on the smaller side, but I included it because I just love that green.
I typically am not crazy about a satchel shape—too prissy—but this is nicely streamlined.
