What Bag Did You Carry Most This Year?

A new addition or an oldie, but goodie?

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.

Always coming back to my Chloe Marcie Shoulder Bag in Cashmere Grey (small). Maybe the most versatile bag on this planet. Just goes with everything.

I have the small cross body Valentino in brown and my Gucci camera bag in black. Both were just so easy to grab, small, matched somehow displaying me as somewhat put together. I think we always fall back to ease and comfort when on the go. I need to use my other bags more. LOL

A Rebecca Minkoff belt bag. I have fully embraced the belt bag trend and I love that this one is cute but hardy and since it was inexpensive, I don’t have to worry about it. As much as I love designer bags, I am still searching for the perfect mix of subtle, versatile, and durable to become an every day bag for me.

Surprised how often I grabbed my Chanel 19 medium in black. Very durable and easy to wear. Mine is an earlier model, I think from 2019, and is in goat rather than lamb.

I have to admit I’m a big Loewe fan but for every day I’m still grabbing my Lusher Hero bag and or City Sling bag. The leather is ridiculously soft and has a ton of room! Perfect for everyday stuff and I’m not destroying a bag that costs 1000’s 🙂

Loewe Puzzle bag small in Black. It has been my daily bag for more than a year and I have loved using it. Now I am switching to Staud Enzo large hobo style bag as it is good quality and on trend. Loewe bag is fine but the strap lost a metal end which had the Loewe’s symbol… So I am retiring it. It took me a while to find a bag I wanted. I have been bought and returned Givenchy Pandora small.

No idea why but my Hermes Jardinier tote was my go to this past year. It just was the right size and functioned well for me this year.

The bag I wore the most is a tie between my Sophie Hulme pinch and my Longchamp le pliage (thanks to where I live).

But I must say, outside of a bag or two that I haven’t touched in half a decade, I used all my bags at least twice this year 🥰

My red Gucci Soho Disco. I bought it for the pop of color thinking, I’ll wear it every so often. Somehow it’s become my go-to and I think it’s due to the amazing Gucci red color. I love it!
