Wishful Wednesday - Handbags

 'I wish' .... I could afford one of these handbags without putting a dent in my pocketbook!

Handbags really aren't my thing to be honest.  In fact, a few years ago I had a really "authentic-looking" Fendi bag, and I was actually a little embarrassed by it.  (Not that there is anything wrong with a nice purse... I just would usually rather something else.) I do LOVE the classic LongChamp bags, however.  (This is the one I'm carrying now.  It is a splurge and I'm thankful for times like birthdays and Christmas and VERY generous parents/sister -- they keep me in style!)

I would say I'd like one in every color, but the truth is, I am WAY too lazy to change my purse that often.  The last one I had I literally carried until pencils started sticking out of the holes in the corners.  (Classy, I know!)

I also really like the look of these leather beauties from JCrew.  (Shoot, they are just as expensive as "designer labels.")

And, while we're on the subject of AWESOME BAGS, be sure you enter my Letter Tree giveaway for this cute monogrammed tote right here --- not exactly a handbag, but still SO excellent!  Today is the LAST DAY to enter, and I will announce the winner tomorrow!!


  1. i love that j crew one!!! but i hate spending too much money on bags b/c i'm so hard on them! LOL.

  2. Love the JCrew bag!! Wow!
    I've had the same purse for over a year now... I love it, but I feel like it's time for a new one.
