Our What Fits category is a reader favorite, and I promise we’ll be sharing more bags and what you can expect to fit inside them in the near future. (If you have requests on bags you want to see included, let me know in the comments below.) Knowing the interior capacity of a bag is especially important for smaller styles; what looks like it can fit a continental wallet in a stock image may only be able to handle a card case in real life.
I’m not really haunted by much (maybe just the idea of a super large spider or taking a really bad fall), but I do find myself constantly thinking about certain bags that got away. This clearly is a topic that comes up a bit here at PurseBlog; we have covered it twice (here and here) in the past, and before I wrote this post today, I asked members of the PurseForum this very question.
I was planning on sharing my must-have spring pieces with you today, but I got behind on work, so instead, I’m sharing two items I want in my closet right now. My love affair with Gucci shouldn’t come as a surprise to any of you; I was already a fan before Alessandro Michele took over, and with his reinvigoration of the brand, I fell even further down the rabbit hole.
One of the greatest bag feats Balenciaga ever accomplished was whipping shoppers into a frenzy over the Motorcycle Bags’ seasonal colors in the design’s early days. (We have have some gorgeous photos of some of the design’s rarest colors.) Since then, the clamor has died down a bit, and shoppers have gone back to normal levels of bag obsession, which isn’t exactly a problem.
The classically modern Tory Burch aesthetic stood out from the minute Tory entered the scene, and her playful-yet-wearable clothing and bags are integral parts of many women’s day-to-day wardrobes. Named for Tory’s parents, Buddy and Reva Robinson, the Robinson bag collection is a pillar of the brand; it’s one of Burch’s most recognizable and sought-after designs.
There are certain bags that immediately catch your eye and are identifiable as particular designer off the bat. To accomplish that, some brands use a classic monogram, others with signature hardware, and many have shapes that jump out immediately as brand icons; Prada prefers the final option.
My personal affinity for Gucci bags has flourished with designer Alessandro Michele leading the brand. I’m not alone; seemingly every major fashion insider feels the same way, and I’ve spotted the brand’s bags, clothing and shoes on many of the most stylish men and women in the world.
