The Many Bags of Nicole Richie

Few people have handbag collections as extensive and covetable as Nicole Richie‘s. We’re all well aware of her undying love for Balenciaga, but she mixes in everything from Chanel, to Hermes, to Chloe between her much-loved Bal bags. On top of that, the purse options from her House of Harlow 1960 line aren’t bad at all. Nicole has her handbag game on lock from multiple angles.

What I love most about Nicole’s style, though, is that you can find pictures of her wearing most of these bags (especially the Balenciagas) multiple times over multiple years. Just because something isn’t “in season” anymore doesn’t mean she drops it, and going back to your favorites no matter what is always the sign of a celeb who loves handbags as much as we do. Below, check out Nicole’s enormous, covetable handbag collection.

    I love Nicoles handbag collection and her style, she got me into Bal. However I think the tan suede city might be a ponyhair.

    This post has me salivating! I would love a Bal bag, but can’t decide if I should go neutral or choose one of their gorgeous colors! I don’t do well when faced with so many options! Wish I had Nicole’s collection in my closet. *swoon*
