At PurseBlog, we understand that spring’s trend toward bright colorblocking can be intimidating, particularly when you decide to do it in a minimal way a la Jil Sander Spring 2011. In those kinds of ensembles, there’s nothing to hide behind – it’s just you and your colorful pants, out there for the world to see. Depending on your personality, that thought might either be exhilarating or terrifying. If it’s the latter, consider throwing a bag like the Veda Ursala Bucket Bag in black leather or camel suede into the bright, shining mix.

If you need an antidote from bright bags but still want to fit in with the other trends of the season, these bags fit the bill perfectly, and for a very reasonable price. Veda took these bags down to their most basic lines to give them a modern feel that some retro-inspired bucket bags lack, and the neutral colors enhance that choice quite a bit. I’d still love to see them in yellow and coral, but if you’re not going to jump that bandwagon, you don’t need to wait and see if other colors surface. Buy the leather version via ShopBop for $385 or the suede version for the same price.

    Very nice. Definatly would only buy the leather version for a crossbody bag that might take a little more abuse than a shoulder bag, but the suede is pretty too!

  • JenG

    Wow! I love them both! Either of these would make a great birthday present for me!

    Some bucket bags are nice, many are not. I like these. Coach used to make a terrific bucket bag that was gorgeous. It’s a mystery that Coach no longer makes it. I bet they’d sell tons if they brought it back. I saw a lady carrying one the other day and it complemented her outfit (skinny jeans tucked in riding boots) tremendously. Some day I wish to get the large Noe in classic LV canvas. With the right outfit it can look nice.

    I absolutely adore these Veda Ursala Bucket Bags, especially in the camel suede!

  • Katherine

    These are nice! I particularly like the one on the right. I have a similar bag – not as nice though…

  • A Few Goody Gumdrops

    I think the bags are very cool, simple and chic. Not every bag has to be over-sized, fringed or studded. Sometimes it’s nice just to carry a simple bag even though I am always carrying huge one! The price is right and I would buy!!! I think this would look great at night with jeans and ankle booties.

    I am oddly attracted to bucket bags, and these are no exception! Love the black version.

  • The Little Dust Princess

    I like bucket bags! Some of them look better than others of course, but in general, I think they’re a nice shape : )

    • JollyRoger

      absolutely agree with you : D

  • Mochababe73

    Beautiful materials, but I’m on the fence. I like details on my bag no matter how big or small.
    But, I don’t really care for minimalism either.

  • Musette

    I used to be Bucket Gal and would always get grief from my pals, calling my Longchamp bag(s) Bucket Number One/Two/etc after the old Bozo Grand Prize Game. The weasels. :-D

    Because of their horrid, Mean Girl ways, I now never carry bucket bags.

    (yeah, right :-)

    btw – these are CUTE!
