Are you surprised I am not writing about Fall handbags for moi? Well, in truth, I did buy one for the season…my longed for Coach New Willis in Cognac (at the MOST amazing deal ever!). I am very pleased with it…the color, the quality. However, I really think the Classic (vintage) Coach Willis is superior in function and size.
The above photo is not my bag but it looks just like it. However, I always remove the Coach hang tag…and I removed the tassels ( I really don’t “get” the tassels). This bag is such a great color for Fall so I am happy to have added it to the “wardrobe”.
Since having bought it, I have wondered how many other women are shopping for a new Fall handbag. If so, are they shopping for bags in various shades of brown because of going into Autumn season? Like cognac? Walnut? Chocolate? And then I thought, why not feature a few bags I have for sale in my Etsy store (I am simply shameless, aren’t I?)? One never knows where she will find her dream bag.
Let’s start with a classic style. Hermes made this structured bag one of the most iconic, sought after bags in the world. Alas, not many can afford to plop down thousands of dollars for an authentic Kelly handbag. I found this one listed on Ebay:
Tres chic, non? It is listed at a starting bid of $4,999. Wow. If this is a bag you can afford, go for it. But if you, like me, are a little more budget conscience, then this might be an option for you instead:
This bag gives you the “look” and great quality for only $75.00. Now you have $4,924.00 to spend on something else.
Another popular trend I have seen are clutch bags. Here is a cute one:
This is actually a good deal for a Givenchy. I like it! I found quite a few good deals for similar bags when I was searching around the internet, in all prices ranges. And look! Here is one too:
When I originally found this one, I thought about keeping it because it is so classy and so “now”. However, I already use a Patricia Smith Moon Bag and really don’t have need for another clutch. So into the Etsy store it went waiting for adoption.
Are you a fan of Cole Haan handbags? This is one of my favorite styles:
So imagine my surprise when I found this Ingber vintage bag:
(click here for listing)
The styling is so similar to the Cole Haan. Yet, I think the Ingber has maybe more character than the Cole Haan. And a better price. : )
Being a Coach fan, I am intrigued by their new Madison collection bags. Mind you, I am always a sucker for turn lock closures on my bags. I really am. I find this new style adorable:
I love the strong vintage vibe the above bag emotes. If you like that look, you may like this vegan friendly purse too:
Again, the cost of this bag is a fraction of the Coach.
So tell me. Are you shopping for a new (or “new to you”) bag this Fall? What color will you go with this year?
