Note to self: Do NOT cash in your 401K to buy all of these bags
There comes a point in every woman's life when she must look at various financial accounts and decide what can be pilfered from for the purchase of a new handbag. (I say this, as if it is not a semi-monthly occurrence for some of you. We all know that it is.) A couple of the bags featured this week made my eyes pop out of my head, cartoon wolf-style, and now I am crunching some numbers. The numbers aren't yielding as much as I'd like, but I may be setting up my umpteenth automatic savings plan that's just called "Fendi Fundz."
Of course, Fendi Fundz might not be fully financed until the Fall 2020 collection out, but such is life. Ladies and gents, if you have finance-savvy tips for bankrolling your bags, I'd love to hear them.
Bella Hadid was seen leaving the Bowery Hotel in NYC with an uber rare, uber small suede version of the Hermès Birkin. Hermès makes a very limited number of suede Birkins, but don't fret! I won't be competing for them with any of you. [UPDATE: Bella's bag isn't a real Birkin, it's a riff on the iconic bag from Japanese brand READYMADE called the Travel Bag. It's made out of surplus Army canvas.]
Here's Bella out and about in NYC once again with a recent favorite of hers: a brand new Prada Faces Frame Bag. Have you seen Prada's fresh Pre-Fall 2018 collection though? Shop the Prada Faces Frame Bag via Bergdorf Goodman ($2,400)
Here's Heidi Klum, carrying an oversized Chanel Maxi Flap at JFK, when just last week all of her airport travel needs seemed to be met by an MCM Train Case. (Alternatively, her PA was out of shot, balancing all of her luggage and Chanel Maxis.) Shop Chanel Bags via Vestiaire Collective
Jessica Alba's new baby apparently dropped some time around the New Year, and this is the first I'm even hearing about it! Baby Hayes and mama were spotted ambling around in Beverly Hills together recently. Mama is carrying a luxe green Bulgari Serpenti Bag. Shop Bulgari Bags via Vestiaire Collective
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley always looks like she's on the runway, regardless of the lighting situation, and this day is no different. She's carrying a gorgeous, multicolored Fendi Kan I Bag with embroidered FF logos. Shop the Fendi Kan I Bag via Fendi ($3,650)
Here's actress Rowan Blanchard, heading into the AOL Build Series with a new Coach 1941 Shoulder Bag. She's making the rounds to discuss her new book, Still Here, and her new film A Wrinkle in Time. Shop Coach Bags via Coach
Finally, here's Tatyana Ali, also heading into the AOL Build Series with a bonafide mystery bag! Any ideas?
