Am I the only one who sees these lovely hard case bags, reminiscent of suitcases made for hats, and feels a desire to step back into time, or better yet, stay in the future and buy the modern day renditions by Marc Jacobs and Carven? The new round bags: beautiful!
If you love the new round bag, the choices are plentiful: quilted leather, fur, color blocking, armed with charms, wooden, lizard and snakeskin, beaded and embroidered. The choice is yours. Here is a round-up of of some of my favs:
The options here cost between $48 and $1599. Those who know me will not be too surprised that in the opening photo, I am wearing a leapord print, round bag that cost one dollar, at a yard sale. The skirt is H&M, the cashmere shell is Prada and the top stitched gloves are from Bloomindales a few years back. Yes, A dollar! More details on some of these beauties pictured above and below: 1.DVF $445 at Forziere.com - 2.Carven $670 at SSENSE.com - 3.DOLCE & GABBANA from ProfileFashion.com priced at $540 - 4. Round bag with charms $49 from sevenserenity fashion via Etsy.com - 5.Chanel via Ebay $1599 or best offer-6. Marc by Marc Jacobs is 458 Euros via Railso.com. Next are two unusual bags that are under the radar:
1. wood laminate bag is eco-friendly as is priced at $448 from outofgray.com- 2. the orange bag is Reece Hudson and has just sold out..sorry!
Now remember, not all of these bags will cost an arm and a leg. The round, pink bag in the "Coveting Round Bags" collage is from HSN, and it is priced at $48.00. You can also do what I did and try your luck with second hand stores, but I think these bags are beautiful enough to step up to the plate.
Note: the smaller inset on the round bag collage, with the Marc Jacobs bag is from Pinterest. The larger inset is of me.
