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

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 Bag Pink and Green

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 in Gray

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

Fendi 3Jour Petite Bicolor Tote Bag

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

Fendi By The Way Small Croc Satchel in White and Black

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?

I’d love to add the By The Way bag! It’s a statement piece that you can dress down or up, take it to downtown or to a chic high-class dinner. And the monochrome combo? it screams VOGUE! Or maybe a Peekaboo? LOL

To me, it sounds like you really like the By the Way bag. I’ve read you talking about how much you like the bag several times throughout some posts and never really mentioned the 2jours or 3jours. I also think the By the Way is a pretty unique but great looking bag (which is difficult to find with the plethora of options for handbags), while the 2jours and 3jours are similar in style to other staple handbags. Lastly, I think it just suits you really well. Judging from what you’ve shown in you collection and pictures you’ve shared of yourself-this seems like the kind of bag that looks really good with your style and its a bit different from what you’ve shown us in you collection so far. I’m not sure on which By the Way model of the two you should go for, but I’m partial on the white w/black croc tail. It looks pretty outstanding, it would definitely catch my eye over the taupe color. This was long, but I hope it helps! Please keep us updated! I LOVE these “which handbag should I get” posts from you guys, it feels like I’m third-person shoppingXD

My favorite is the bag in Slide 2, it’s everything Fendi, chic, classic and a little bit of edge with the tail. I also like that it has a top zipper, the 2 jours is an open bag and I’m not greatly fond of those. Good luck deciding, you can’t go wrong with Fendi or Gucci leather bags!

I LOVE the mint green 2Jours. Such a beautiful color, and the style is so classic. I also like the pink-ish By the Way if you are looking for something a little different, although I’m not sure how I feel about the lizard-looking tail. As for the 3Jours, seems to me more of a trendy item that will not seem current in a couple of years (referring to the things sticking out the side, like on the celine totes – not sure what they are called).

The By the Way in the pinky-taupe for sure! I know you have the pink Antigona but that bag is GORGEOUS!

I had the EXACT SAME dilemma when trying to choose a Fendi bag over the holidays. I like the price point of the 2Jours more than the 3Jours, but ultimately I loved the 3Jours so much more. Then, after circling the Neimans floor for about 2 hours, I saw the By the Way. It was so unique and unlike anything else other brands have right now…I fell in love with it. And the colorway options are much more appealing than in the other two styles.

I bought the large By the Way and couldn’t be more pleased. I use it everyday for work, and it surprisingly larger than you think at first glance. I constantly get compliments on it and find myself reaching for it over and over. I think a lot of brands have boxy look of the 2 & 3 Jours currently, that it’s almost overdone. Also, you can wear the By the Way as a shoulder bag, top handle, or crossbody! (so nice for NYC) I couldn’t be a bigger enthusiast for the BY THE WAY! Good luck choosing ( :

As the proud owner of a medium 2Jours I can’t recommend it highly enough and that mint green is spectacular. It’s such a versatile bag. Just imagine one of your monsters on the 2Jours! Perfect!

Go for the By The Way as it is so unique. I bought the small red last fall and have not regretted getting it. Not big enough for work but great for “out and about”. I think your Givenchy is too close in style and structure to the 2Jour and 3Jour.
