Obsessed: Bags

Okay. What is with us girls and our fashion obsessions? Mine, sadly, are not few and far between; but luckily I'm not a one-track girl -- for example, I don't have a shoe obsession or a bag obsession, but rather I fall in love with certain items or pieces. Sometimes I get them and sometimes I don't (or can't rather).

As I mentioned previously, I had a pretty bad hankering for a pair of t-strap heels a while ago, and then I snagged a great pair on ebay (you can kind of see them in this outfit post). But for a while know, I've been obsessed with getting a new bag. I had a good Dooney & Bourke one that tied me over for a while, and now I'm using a thrifted Gap satchel that's sea foam green, but I know sea foam green is not going to be an everyday bag for very long.

But, here's the thing with me and my bag obsessions: I can't buy nice/expensive purses 'cause I'm a bag killer. Yup, I will openly admit that I use bags until they are dead. They probably last a good 6 months to a year, but I beat them up good. So no Chanel jumbo flaps, Gucci doctor bags, or --GASP -- Marc Jacobs Petal to the Metal (my NEWest obsession -- especially the BENNY bag) for me; I can only get thrift bags. Le sigh.

Here are some of the best of seen around lately:


Clockwise from top right:

1. Petal to the Metal by Marc Jacobs (I want a Benny, but they're hard to come by)
2. Accessory Collection Gucci Tote (this is the one that got away. Had it & sold it!)
3. Chanel Jumbo Flap the most coveted bag around

From etsy:

Clockwise from top left:

1. Alligator bag from Primitive Pin Cushion
2. Striped Satchel from Attic Goods

Oh, and don't forget this FREE bag that I am GIVING AWAY. Enter here!
