Current Cravings: Bags

If anyone was unaware of my handbag problem before, you're aware of it now. For as long as I can remember, I loved bags. Over the years, my taste has definitely progressed, but designer or not, the bag problem was always present. It would start as always needing a new backpack every school year, no matter how many times I told my mom, "Yeah! I'll use this for more than one year." As I got older, handbags weren't just something for me to throw my phone, wallet, and keys into. My bag has become such an important element of my outfit that I can barely leave the house without one unless of course it was just to run a quick errand nearby. Here are a couple of the bags I find to be absolutely stunning, not necessarily planning on purchasing. Although there are a couple of beauties in this list that I wouldn't mind having in my collection... cough, Chanel and Saint Laurent.

I am well aware of how blessed I am with my current collection, some achieved through birthdays and Christmases, others purchased by myself after weeks of saving up paychecks and picking up extra shifts at work. Names such as Chanel, Saint Laurent, Céline, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Chloé beautifully fill my little corner display of fashion favorites. Not everyone understands or will agree with the money spent towards a bag. You have to be able to appreciate the beauty and craftsmanship that goes into a perfectly constructed handbag. Over the years, I know my purse problem isn't going to go away. Some people like to collect cars, I like to collect handbags and shoes. Oh! That inspires me to do a "Currently Coveting: Shoes" post sometime in the future.
