This past weekend was gorgeous here in San Diego. It was wonderful to get out and spend some time with friends. It’s always fun when I meet someone who is as obsessed with handbags as we are here at Team PurseBlog. When I get a chance to talk about what I do, what I love, I enjoy it thoroughly. Luckily, this exact situation came up this weekend. I was asked what is hot right now, and as you might be able to guess, one of the first things I mentioned was bucket bags. I am becoming more interested in this trend with each passing minute. So, I was a happy camper when I came across this fabulous Badgley Mischka creation.


As the weekend wrapped up and the work week began, I was instantly pleased to see another wonderful bucket bag that just continued my love for this trend. This Badgley Mischka Platinum Label Erin Drawstring Bag is a just the kind of bag that I could see myself carrying all day long. Black leather and goldtone grommets play off of one another perfectly. The adjustable shoulder strap (20″-23″ drop) will fit perfectly on your shoulder or even across your body. While I’m not always a fan of drawstring closures, this one is lovely. And as I mentioned, you could carry this bag during the day or at night without much effort. Buy through Saks for $385.

    Yes, the bucket bag is starting to become more and more popular. I remember I owned one bucket bag years and years ago when I was in 8th grade that was my first and last bucket bag I bought. I must say there are only a few on the market that I like right now. Marc by Marc Jacobs Pixie, Rebecca Minkoff has one, and now this Badgley Mischka Platinum Label Erin Drawstring Bag. I love gold metal against black leather and the grommets that were chosen are wonderfully placed. I am not a huge fan of drawstring either, but I guess bucket bags tend to go with drawstring closures. (fb)

    Nice bright gold hardware against jet black leather – not too embellished but enough to be interesting AND LOVE the price ! (fb)

    Love the hardware, but I have never been a bucket bag person. I don’t like the way that it hangs on the body.
    The hardware reminds me of my Rebecca Minkoff Devote.

    I like. The hardware shows up nicely in contrast to the black leather and yet isn’t overwhelming. I’ve been looking at bucket bags recently too. (fb)

    It’s pretty, but kinda boring, and I find bucket bags so uncomfortable to carry! (fb)
