As the week goes on, I save items for Belle’s Weekly Favorites until I’ve built up enough pieces for a post. But last week, I noticed that every item I was saving was a bag.
You see, I have a small handbag problem. Some women like shoes. I like handbags. Clutches, satchels, totes, crossbody bags, shoppers, etc.–I love them all. Here are a few fall handbags that caught my attention.
First from the left, we have a top handle bag from Cooperative at Urban Outfitters. It’s versatile cognac color and clean lines are sure to please. If you’re looking for a top handle bag, I would also check out this Street Level bag in kelly green and this Brahmin Delphine Bag.
In the second column, we have a stunning forest green bag from Banana Republic (also comes in red, tan and a gorgeous black and white). Definitely waiting for a 40%-off sale to pick up this gorgeous thing. And I adore the snow leopard print on the Sole Society bag. If you’re looking for a leopard purse, try this foldover clutch from Stefani Bags or this tote from Sole Society.
The third column shows a tan AX satchel for traveling or weekend use. I also love these inexpensive Old Navy clutches because they are perfect for storing makeup, pens or other essential inside my larger purses without making a mess. And they’re much cheaper than the pouches Rebecca Minkoff sells.
Colorblocking is a trend that’s still going strong and with pretty bags like this one from Aldo, it’s easy to see why. Prefer a little color in your colorblocking? This Milly bag is grey with a hint of blush and this inexpensive Rachel Roy tote mixes navy and snakeskin. I’m also obsessed with orange right now, so this clutch is perfect for me. Though I may not be able to resist this Michael Kors messenger.
Finally, we have this modern, wine-colored bag from Zara. Awesome. There are a lot of pricey designer bags being made in this deep purple color, like this Anya Hindmarch and this Jil Sander, so it’s great to see a more accessible bag in this gorgeous shade.
So what handbags are you loving for fall? Or are you saving your money for shoes?
