My Bags

I love bags and used to have a lot more of all colors, shapes and materials from my  high school and university days, bought along travels, in vintage stores, highstreet and so on that I ditched over the past couple of years. 

Of course if I could, I'd own designer bags (Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Celine,  Hermès, the Vuitton SC bag...) there are so many gorgeous bags and the sequential prices going up, I can't spend thousands of euros on a bag every other months And, at the same time, copies of  those bags just don't have any appeal.

So I just happily rely on my core bags pictured bellow. The ones I use no matter the seasons. They have a classic shape, understated colors, are big enough to hold my necessary on the go items and versatile. I rarely buy new bags and the latest addition is a Vanessa Bruno Athé besace.

  1. great bags...i love the anna corinna!!!

  2. They're all such "forever" bags, they look nice and functional but also stylish.

    I love bags, probably my biggest fashion weakness, but I've learnt to buy less and rely on what I have too.

  3. Thanks a lot If Jane and Lin!

    Can you believe there was a time that seems so long ago now, when I changed bag everyday according to outfits and situations?! Yeah you can laugh!

  4. We have the same taste in bags. My Anna Corinna is completely beat up but has been my go-to bag for six years now.

  5. Love your bags!

    Can you share the price of that new Vanessa Bruno bag? As I'm coming to Paris in November, will put that on my shopping list.


  6. etoilee8: Can't believe I tried to sell my AC on ebay a few years ago! Luckily for me no one was interested! :))
    It's such a classic for me too!

    Anonyme : The Vanessa Bruno Athé cost 365 euros (or 375 ?) I can't remember correctly. Will check when I'm home.

  7. i am trying to tailor my bag collection as i have far too many. i need more cross body bags as i hate clutches and shoulder bags since i use mine for books now mostly. however, i've also noted that size/shape are key as i tend to fill larger bags, carrying too much and straining my back!
    currently on the hunt for the perfect style for my new lifestyle!
