help me pick out my new fall handbag

Friday, August 13, 2010

guys i have a problem.

you know when you want something really bad and you simply can't stop thinking about having it in your possession it until it is?

well that's my problem, i.e. real life altering shit here, until i find/own a new black purse for fall.

this season my summer staple has been my MARC by Marc Jacobs totally turnlock cross body bag, and while this purse can easily be worn into the fall/winter i need a new rich leather black bag.

my staple fall/winter oversized black bag for the last 4+ years has been my botkier sasha large duffel - yes, my purse is considered a duffel bag... i have a lot of stuff (sue me).

for the last couple months i've planned on making a bag purchase and i think i've finally narrowed down the list but i want your opinion -
which one should i buy?!?!


#1 - marc jacobs paradise rio bag

#2 - chloe marcie large bag (shown in brown, but obvy i'd get black...)

#3 - chloe marcie small bag (don't worry, it's still 'large'...)

#4 - chloe victoria bag

#5 - chloe cary bag (i can only find it in red and dark grey, but, it's pretty hot...)

can you tell i love the brand chloe? but then again i've always wanted a true marc jacobs. decisions, decisions.

so what do you think?

  1. #4 is my favorite by far - but I have zero fashion sense - so take my vote for what it's worth :P

  2. I'm a big fan of the Chloe Cary bag (#5) in red. But, if you think it'd class with too many of your black outfits, you could always get it in gray. =)

  3. First off I wanted to tell you that you have the most impeccable taste in bags. Since you are addicted to shopping though I would suggest chosing a bag that has a strap that will fit on your shoulder. Although I love my LV Speedy sometimes it annoys me because it doesn't fit over my shoulder when I am out and about, hence the reason I got the tote. Just something to think about.

  4. #3 or #5. just get both and give me whichever you like least ;)

  5. We must have the same taste in bags, because I love all of them! I don't think you can go wrong here. :)

  7. #1 is my favorite.

    Although I like the chloe cary bag in dark grey! oh la la.

  8. I'm a big fan of #4 and #5! I also fully support carrying something that is known as a duffel bag.

    Have a great weekend, Alexa!

  9. You are the devil for bringing more bags to my attention.

    That being said I'd go with #1.

  10. I vote #2 or #4. My only issue with 4 is that I can't tell if it will fit over your shoulder...the straps seem just a little shorter.

  11. Love the Marc Jacobs - #1!! It's so beautiful and really stands out against the rest! Oh to be able to purchase one myself...

  12. The plum has officially jumped the shark. First stretchy-skinny-super-expensive jeans from the GAP, now handbags that cost half a weeks pay. I miss the boozing recaps and sweet pics :-(

    But I'll check back Monday to see how sweet your weekend was...

  13. The one with the biggest lock on it.

  14. I'd go with #1 or #4.

    Mostly #1, though.

  15. You can't go wrong with any of those choices, but I'd say definitely #5 in grey. That is one hot bag. 2nd place: #2 in black!

  17. Chloe Marie Large or Chloe Cary.

  18. I'm going with #2 or #5. Those are adorable and my faves!

  19. #2 or #5.

    I adore my Marc, but a Chloe or Miu Miu are next on my list.

  20. I'm not generally a big fan of designer handbags (mainly because I'm too careless) but I LOVE 2 and 5.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I agree with P, 2 and 5 are the most wonderful of them! (Most is the key word there)

  22. Oh my god Alexa! I was just in Nordstom today and saw these!! I like #'s 1 and 2. Good lord girl you treat yourself right. Can you be my sugar mama :)

  23. I actually like the Marc the least; I find its shape a little dowdy, & possibly unwieldy. But I LOVE the Chloe Marcie, in either size!
