I have been covering a lot of Fendi bags recently, and that's because I'm crushing on Fendi majorly. The brand continues to release beautiful designs, and so many of them are fast becoming favorites of handbag lovers, including me. There's the 2Jours, which I now consider a staple, the 3Jours, which is a great update to the 2Jours, and the By The Way, which is the newest of the bunch that I love.
I look at so many bags every single day, and when it comes time to make a purchase, I think it over much more than I used to. A few years ago, I would see a bag, love it, scoop it up and pay before I even really thought if I needed the bag, really wanted it and could use it in my collection. I'm more particular now; I think about why I want the bag and try to decide if the color choice will work to fill a void in my wardrobe.
Here are the bags I have my eye on; I'd love your help! If I could, of course, I'd get them all. Alas, I need to decide on just one.
Fendi Medium 2Jours Tote in Mint
$1,900 via Farfetch
I still adore the 2Jours and the medium size will hold plenty of my daily items without being too big. The color is really pretty online and if it's the one I've seen in the store (which I think it is), it's not too green it's just pretty. I don't own many green bags and definitely don't have pale green bags, but I think this bag would be beautiful for our time we spend in Florida.
Fendi By The Way Shoulder Bag
$1,749.08 via Farfetch
There are so many beautiful color combinations Fendi is putting together, but this variation might just be my favorite. The bag is a light grey color that appears to have taupe undertones and there are hardware details in a light green and the oversized pull closure strap in pink alligator (not sure if it's actual exotic skin, the site doesn't say). This bag is neutral and looks light and airy and just really beautiful. While I love the 2Jours, I do like the idea of getting a bag that isn't as well known from Fendi as well.
Fendi 2Jours Mini Tote Bag
$1,900 via Neiman Marcus
When I was looking to get my Givenchy Antigona, I was leaning towards gray. I wound up getting light pink because I got a great price and ended up loving my decision, but I do love a great gray bag and nothing is more classic than this bag in this color. I don't know if I'm sold on the gray with the gold hardware, though; it looks elegant, but I tend to like silver or gunmetal hardware with gray leather.
Fendi 3Jours Petite Bicolor Tote Bag
$2,650 via Neiman Marcus
I really like the 3Jours bag; it's a spin on the 2Jours, but the price tag is a bit higher. I found many 'ordinary' colors, but I love the brown paired with the green interior peeking out. If I'm being honest, this is last on my list, but I wanted to include a 3Jours to see if any of you could convince me why I need it.
Fendi By The Way Small Croc Satchel in White and Black
$2,500 via Neiman Marcus
I stay away from white bags, but there's something so chic about this By the Way bag. The bulk of the body is white, but the crocodile tail zip closure in black really amps up the style. Not all of the By the Way bags have the crocodile tail, but I'm digging it on an otherwise refined bag. And what combo is better than black and white?
