I’m always impressed by women who manage to switch out their bags every few days, or to match their outfits; it’s something to aspire to. My M.O. is more to buy a bag I love, carry it for months and months every single day, and then get sick to death of it and crave a new one bad. It’s like when you really like a song and play it so many times that finally you can’t bear to hear it anymore. That’s where I am right now, and I have to say, it feels like the pickings are slim. I believe I think this because I’m not crazy for any bag trend right now, and especially not what appears to be the biggest one of all: making them really, really tiny. But I did manage to find a handful I liked, including this delightful, loud orange one.
Or maybe what I really need is a backpack? This one is a pretty perfect size, and I like that it’s kind of handbag-ish-looking.
I know it’s not the most practical thing, but I do sort of desire a chain-strap bag, and this one from A.P.C. is so elegant.
This is a good laptop-friendly option, and the striped strap is fun.
This looks very chicly minimal and old Jil Sander to me.
I’m not especially looking for a tote, but this splurgy little number from Il Bisonte is such a fantastic and unexpected blue.
This nylon camera bag has got a very utilitarian, cool-girl appeal.
