Most Loved || Purse Edition

Happy Monday friends! I have been wanting to do this post for quite some time and once I got one of my dream bags I knew it was time!! Some women love shoes, others love clothes & some have a serious love for purses - I fall into that category!! When it comes to a great bag, I'm willing to wait, do the right amount of research and save up to make that purchase even sweeter! Some of these bags are still available, but some are either limited edition or aren't made anymore - regardless they are still my most loved purses! I know they aren't everyone's thing, but I sort of feel like I can conquer the world with the right bag on my arm! 

Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel ||

Boston Blogger, Rebecca minkoff, suede cross body bag, regan satchel
The Regan Satchel was my third Rebecca Minkoff purchase & definitely my favorite one! I decided to go with a bit of a different dusty blue color because I knew it was different from anything in my collection (using that word very loosely here) and I felt like I could wear it 3 out of the 4 seasons! It's spacious enough for me to wear to work & travel with, which I did for our California Road Trip! 
Boston Blogger, Rebecca minkoff, suede cross body bag, regan satchel

Pro's

  • Spacious - large enough to pack everything except for a laptop
  • Interior pockets for phone & lipstick / gloss if needed
  • Wear as a cross body, on your shoulder or in the crook of your arm

Con's

  • suede so if you aren't careful it could get damaged with inclement weather

Kellen Sole Society

I spotted the black sole society bag on Instagram and was on the hunt for what could be an every day smaller black bag that I could wear on the weekends! Sadly, this was only a limited edition bag (there are a few in stock in the emerald color) but I wore it so much this past winter! For a smaller bag it was surprisingly very roomy - I could even fit my iPad mini in it if I wanted to! 

Pro's 

  • Spacious with one zipper pocket, but the pocket isn't big enough for an iPhone
  • Super fun cheetah print interior
  • Really goes with anything - I wore it to work & for nights out

Con's 

  • Limited edition so it's probably not going to be made again 😞
  • Suede so if you aren't careful it could get damaged with inclement weather
  • The little tassels are a little flimsy so I've lost pretty much all of the ones it came with
  • While the strap is comfortable, if you are wearing a slippery fabric like a leather jacket - it does tend to fall off a bit. 

Louis Vuitton Neverfull 

Boston Blogger, Louis Vuitton Neverfull Damier Print, neverfull bag, louis vuitton, best work bag, tote bag, damier print
When Gary and I were on our first real vacation together I decided to splurge on the bag that I had been lusting over for 2 years - the Louis Vuitton Neverfull - GM (largest size) with the classic monogram. Now when you purchase the Neverfull it comes with a handy little pochette (small zipper pouch) that you could use for better organizing, but 7 years ago when I purchased mine it sadly didn't come with that. I use this bag every single day - it truly lives up to it's name of "neverfull" and I can't imagine this ever going out of style. I use this on every single trip & love that I can pack it full of everything any anything, which is also what makes it pretty heavy! 
Boston Blogger, Louis Vuitton Neverfull Damier Print, neverfull bag, louis vuitton, best work bag, tote bag, damier print

Pro's

  • So Much Space - you could fit everything, possibly the kitchen sink! 
  • Iconic and will never go out of style
  • Perfect for travel, trips & every day life
  • Retains it's value if you ever want to sell it...but really why would you?

Con's

  • There is only one interior pocket, but other than that it's up to you to organize. You can find organizers on etsy, but I honestly never really had the need for it.  
  • The shoulder straps are very thin, which makes them cut into your shoulder if you aren't careful - especially when you've packed the bag full! 

Burberry Bridle Leather Hobo 

Burberry Bridle Hobo Bag
I first spotted this bag at Bloomingdales and loved that it didn't look like the conventional Burberry bag - no checkered print at all! I couldn't stop thinking about it, but by the time I was ready to purchase it, they were already out of stock and not going to be made again! I scoured eBay & managed to find a brand new with tags, still in the box with everything included for a decent price reduction and I opted for the "buy it now" because I couldn't let this pass me by again! The leather is like buttahhhh - it's so soft & the straps with gold hardware give the bag a little edge! I've had the bag for three years now and this style still seems relevant. 

Pro's 

  • Three separate deep compartments and the middle one has a zipper
  • Inner side deep pocket
  • Two shoulder straps - one short and one long 
  • Lined with nylon so if you spill something it can be wiped off

Con's 

  • None except for it's no longer available! 

Pochette Metis 

boston blogger, pochetet metis monogram print, classic bag, louis vuitton, french designer
Ah...my dream bag! At this point, if you're on instagram you've definitely seen this Louis Vuitton bag! The story of how this bag came to be is long, but so worth it now that I have "her!" A little over two years ago I first spotted this bag, it wasn't quite as popular yet, but I didn't feel like I needed it so I decided to wait. Fast forward and it started popping up everywhere and I still couldn't stop thinking about it so I started to save. I knew it was going to be my 30th birthday present from me to me, so I was really eager to have it in March. Well turns out everyone else wanted the bag too because there was a waitlist for the monogram print and it was nowhere to be found (trust me, I looked in every store from NYC to California). I put myself on the waitlist in Boston and not so patiently waited until I finally got her one month after my birthday!! Well worth the wait & I absolutely love the bag!! I wear it every chance I get - which you've probably seen from my Instagram, but I just can't help it! Absolutely the best purchase & after this one...I think I'm done for a while! If you're interested in a "what's in my bag" for this one I'd be super happy to do one!! 
boston blogger, pochetet metis monogram print, classic bag, louis vuitton, french designer

Pro's 

  • Three very well sized interior pockets - I've carried my iPad mini with me. 
  • The cross body strap is adjustable & also comes in the monogram print instead of the vachetta strap
  • Exterior zipper picket in the back that is perfect for keeping your phone accessible.
  • Timeless style that is always a conversation starter - can't tell you how many times someone has asked me about the bag. 

Con's

  • You can't really do much with the handle except for carry it in your hand- too short to have in the crook of your arm
  • Waitlist for just about every color option on there now, but clearly there's demand for it

I mentioned at the start of the post, that I do my homework with purses that "I have my eye on" - I read reviews & then check it out in the store (probably 5 or so times) really try them on and only then do I commit. I guess when I think of most loved, I think of the bags that I wear the most. I'm in the process of figuring out a closet redesign and hoping that I don't have to stuff them in their little corners for much longer. 

Do you have a dream bag? What's your most loved purse?

  3. What a fun post! That's so awesome that you finally got your dream bag! I'm always a fan of a crossbody strap, it makes the bag so much more functional. It's gorgeous! Happy Monday!

  4. I love purses, too! You know I got a LV for my 30th, too! I love your newest one - such a classic style. I think a Chanel and Burberry on still on my lust list, but really, the neverfull is so great, I don't know if I will ever switch!

  5. That pochette and Neverfull are definitely my favorites and they are an investment that you will never lose money on. That is how I always justify them to Mark ;)

  6. I am a total shoes and bag fanatic! I love my LV neverfull, I used it as my diaper bag with an insert and it was amazing. I still carry it everywhere. I also love my Gucci horse bit satchel, such a classic bag. My Tory Burch cross body will always be a favorite too because it is mini and fits just the right amount of stuff when I don't have all my kids with me.
    Loved this post, such a fun idea!

  7. That's a pretty gorgeous collection you've got going on! I'm hoping to get a Neverful in the next few years :)

  8. These are all such great bags! I love anything Rebecca Minkoff! I'm in the process of saving up for my first LV and can't decide between the Neverfull and the Pochette!

  14. Love the variety of your purse collection, really shows your style and how much you do your homework. I had the SPEEDY on my list forever and did the research like you, now I want the NEVERFULL!

  15. You have the best bag collection! I am so happy you convinced me to get a Neverfull, I seriously use it every day. And I love that RM satchel. I have the Regan crossbody but that one has so much more room! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  16. I'm so glad you did this post because I wanted to know your thoughts on that LV purse you've recently got for your birthday! I remember seeing it on your b-day wishlist, so when I started to see photos of you wearing it, I was happy you were able to get it! It's one I've been thinking about myself, I didn't know that there's a wait list for it though. It's crazy how impactful social media is, right?! It's such a great size, I love how compact it is, especially as a soon to be mama. I have a couple of LV bags that I love, but aren't the best for everyday because their handles are a bit impractical. That said, I've had my eyes also on the Neverfull for a long time and I've always imagined it being my diaper bag, but now I'm having reservations because of what you mentioned about the handle. I'll definitely have to think about it more because I HATE that feeling when a bag digs into my shoulders, especially since I have such boney shoulders as it is. Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a great week ahead!

  17. The reason you love your LV Neverfull is the reason that I love my Longchamp bag! I swear you can fit so much into it, and I can't wait to use it when we head to Europe in a couple of weeks! The only con like you said is that sometimes things can get lost in there. That's so exciting that you ended up getting that new bag and that it's everything that you wanted it to be!

  18. You have such a great collection of handbags! Always a fan of Rebecca Minkoff!

  19. Love this review! I have the Neverfull MM and love it - I was torn between the MM and the GM and sometimes I wish I had gone for the largest size, but overall, the MM has done the trick! The Pochette Metis is next on my list (either that or a wallet) but I love seeing the Pochette every time you have a picture with it!

  23. I love both of your LV bags!! But how do you deal with carrying the Neverfull in the city without a zipper? That is what makes me nervous about that bag. I do also love that RM bag.Thanks for sharing lady and have a great day!

  24. So jealous of your handbag collection! I love how all of these are classic styles with a little twist or edge to them.

  26. I am in a purse crisis right now. One of the zippers on the bag I have carried everywhere for two years is broken. I'm googling repairs as we speak. We get attached to these bags, right? I actually haven't bought one since and I am hellbent on fixing this one. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm with you I'd rather spend my big money purchases on purses! Actually, the one you just got is high up on my list! Since I'll have a diaper bag with me a lot in the fall I want to start getting some smaller purses that I can wear with it or throw into it too - I'm glad to hear it has pockets and such and can fit the iPad mini - I didn't even realize there was a waitlist, I better get on it soon!

  29. I love purses as well and certainly have a collection started. I tend to stay with Kate Spade and Michael Kors for most of mine, but the Neverfull has been on my wish list for as long as I can remember! I also am obsessed with the pochette. One day!!!!

  32. LV queen you are! I'm obsessed with your 30th birthday present to yourself, you deserve it! I've had my eye on the Neverfull for 5 years or so and now realizing that I would use it everyday now so I'm saving up and should be buying soon, I'm so excited!

  33. Loved reading this post and how thorough you were about all your favorite bags. Love them all especially the classic LVs. I have always been more of a shoe girl than a bag girl but I do want to invest on few designer bags.

    Loved seeing your outfits here, too. Welcome by and link with me on Thursday, B. Thanks, Ada. =)

  45. I love your bag collection! I was just telling one of my friends that I won't pay a lot for many things anymore but I will spend the money to invest in my bags. They had a Louie at that Bingo I went to and I would have died if I won it. One day :) Beautifully Candid

  47. Suede is gorgeous for a bag but definitely can't be used daily with the delicate material. You have a cute collection...all very different from mine which I like. I don't own anything from Louis Vuitton but the pochette is adorable and looks like it can fit a lot for a "small" purse!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I make sure my bags are practical, especially if I'm using it every day. I love my Michael KORS one right now. I like that Rebecca Minkoff bag though! I already have two cross body bags from her so I have to watch it lol

  52. I love a good satchel/tote and I've recently started "investing" in some from Ralph Lauren. I got an off-white one with gold metal accents that I wore for the first time yesterday. It is small enough to be stylish yet big enough to carry my flats around if I need them.

  58. Love this post! I am totally a bag person as well. Like you I'd rather save up for a nice bag than have a bunch of less expensive ones. There's just something about a nice bag that elevates your whole outfit! The Metis is #1 on my wishlist - I've been wanting it for so long too, and it's crazy how much it blew up! I also like the Neverfull but I think I'd get annoyed that it doesn't have a zipper - does that ever bug you? Ugh LV and their bags... I got the Alma BB a few years ago and the desire for more hasn't stopped!

  60. Okay so when I was in Naples a few months ago, I was looking at some bags and fell in love with this one!! We didn't get it bc we were closing on our house but Ryan later went to the store here in Charlotte to get it for my birthday. They then told him it was discontinued and there was a huge waitlist so he got me a different crossbody (which was nice but didnt LOVE it) so then I went to the store to pick out the Turenne and I'm in love with it!! I love the Pochette Metis though and you're so lucky that you got one off the waitlist! Apparently it has been out for forever but only lately has gained so much popularity... thanks to bloggers I guess :)
