It’s hard to grasp that we’re only one month away from another new year, but believe it, or not 2022 is coming, and it’s coming fast. But before we start thinking about what the new year means for us, today we’re taking a look back at the one we’re about to complete. This year, many of us saw our lives ramp up a bit, as vaccinations were put into overdrive and life began to return to normal little by little. I know I speak for most of us when I say that my bags got a lot more use than they did in 2020.

Now let me preface this by saying that I wish I didn’t have an answer for this, but sadly I do! Because while my main handbag resolution last year was to get more wears out of my lesser used bags, I definitely played favorites this year. So which bag did I use the most during the year? That would be my trusty, practical, and hands-down the best purchase I’ve ever made, Prada Nylon Belt Bag (*shrugs*).

I favored this bag when I first purchased it last year, all spring and summer and straight on through the fall. It’s my go-to for so many reasons, and because I never really put it away—it’s always hanging on my coat rack and remains one of two bags in rotation at any given time—it has gotten a lot, and I mean a lot, of use. It is easily the most casual and utilitarian piece I own; it is undoubtedly the most functional and durable bag in my closet. This bag probably was in use for at least a third, if not half, of my handbag-carrying days this year.

I realize that practicality and functionality are not what made me a bag lover in the first place. Rather I love bags for the fun and fashion they bring to my life, and I really hope I actually stick to 2021’s resolution in 2022. And what about the bag in my collection that got the least use this year? That would be my, yet to be revealed here, Louis Vuitton Urs Fisher Pochette.

So tell us, which bag did you carry most throughout 2021?

I have two YSL medium Nikis – essentially a winter option, in crock-embossed black, with a black chain, and a summer option in canvas with a tan trim. Between the two of them that’s been 90% of my bag wear for the year. They are perfect size and structure for work, travel, night out or just bumming around town, even a park.
