Like most kids in the 90s I had a fanny pack. When this bag started popping up on celebrities a couple of years ago I was sure it was just a passing trend. But of course it is still here and I can’t really say if it will stay or go. Honestly, I really like the functionality of the bag. It keeps your hand free to do whatever and unlike a crossbody you don’t have to adjust it.
I love the look of having it slung over the chest instead of the traditional way of wearing one. I’m still nervous about the longevity of the trend so I’m interested in dropping a ton of money on one. So of course I found some really inexpensive ones, I even found a designer one that’s not too much if you want some designer in your bag collection.
What are your thoughts on the fanny pack trend? Will you be trying it?
There’s something about a straw bag that let’s everyone around you know that you are the fun laid back type of person. They’re effortless yet stylish and have somehow ended up on the chic runways during the fashion weeks.
It has finally warmed up and Spring is definitely here with Summer right around the corner. Now I’m piecing together outfits for future shoots. What I have noticed missing from my bag collection is a versatile straw bag.
You can wear it with a floral summer dress or a simple t-shirt and jeans.
I found some bags on the internet that are affordable and stylish.
This is the recent blogger favorite the Cult Gaia bamboo clutch bag. Okay, so this bag has been a hit among Instagram models and fashion bloggers. Made by an indie brand this bag is a big hit even for the most elite fashion crowds. It’s the more expensive bag on the list but it’s definitely making a name for itself by becoming a classic addition to your bag collection.
This is definitely a classic silhouette. The great thing about this bag is that it can go from the beach to a date night on a hot summer night. This bag is from one of my favorite places: Gap.
I’m not going to lie, I still want this bag. I originally found it on Amazon when I was searching for a bag for my upcoming vacation. I have since opted for my laser cut Summer Rose crossbody. I like this bag because it’s a backpack so it’s great for festival season.
Everyone has that one thing that they’re saving for and dream about, I mean seriously dream about. That one thing for me is a Chanel classic lambskin flap bag with gold hardware of course (medium sized).
I haven’t kept it a secret that I have a love for bags. But this is the ultimate bag that I want. I remember being about ten years old and falling for this classic beauty. Now at twenty-five I’m still waiting until the day I can have one of my own.
Yes, they’re pricey but I see them as a fashion investment. To be honest I shock myself when I realize that I’ve wanted this bag for so long.
Every year the price goes up higher and I feel as though my chance to own one is slipping away from me but then a little voice tells me that I still have a chance. I still can have something nice.
I feel like most kids who grow up poor always had that one thing that they wanted more than anything. For me it was this bag. I knew if I owned this bag that I really wanted meant that I was doing what I loved and working hard at it. Maybe this all sounds shallow or superficial but I don’t believe people don’t have a dream. Even if it’s a dream to own a bag.
Good morning! It’s a bit after midnight and I’m up watching Breakfast at Tiffany’s. You all won’t read this post until a decent time today. I love watching this movie. The older I get the more I understand Holly Golightly.
I love this film because just like other old films it eases what ever trace of anxiety I have (but tonight I’m having trouble sleeping). Everything from the custom Givenchy clothes that Audrey Hepburn wore with such grace, to the opening scene where she’s eating a crossaint and sipping coffee ( my favorite thing to do in college was to eat a crossaint and sip coffee while exploring downtown Pittsburgh).
This film only reminds me not to take things so serious. Relax and enjoy life. Holly is such a carefree character. Yes, she’s hiding from her past but she knows exactly what she wants.
I haven’t done a “Bags I Love” post since last year. My love for handbags hasn’t stopped obviously, I just didn’t realize how much you all enjoyed it. So here’s a new “Bags I Love” post. This time showcasing the Mansur Gavriel Calf Mini Sun bag.
I’m in love with these three colors. Blush, Blu, and Rosa. Mansur Gavriel has been around since 2012 so it’s still a new brand. This doesn’t mean celebrities and bag lovers haven’t been loving this minimalistic brand.
I love this bag design because of how simple it is but it looks like a classic piece that it will last a lifetime. My favorite part of it is the small detail of the bow. It adds a small detail.
This bag comes in a bit over a thousand dollars so it’s definitely an investment piece if you can afford it.
What are your thoughts about this bag? What bag are you loving right now?
Yes, I know this is a fashion post, and my blog has been mainly focused on writing and lifestyle, but my first blog ever was a fashion blog. I love fashion and getting dressed up is so much fun for me. I took a meditation class last night with my floormates and feel so refreshed. I haven’t had an anxiety attack since yesterday morning. Overall, I will try meditation again.
It’s cold here in Pittsburgh and I have been trying to stay warm and cozy inside.I have also been drinking chai lattes at least twice a day. Costly I know, but so tasty. Today was a bit warm, so my sister and I decided to take advantage of that and take some photos.
I love you guys, let me know if you like fashion posts like this.
