A lot of you asked me if I could do a post on my bag collection,
and I've finally found the time to take some pictures of my bags.
School is demanding a lot of my time right now,
but I'm doing my best to post as much as I can!
These bags aren't all mine,
I also included those of my mom and my sister,
since we were each other's bags often.
The advantages of living with women who are all interested in fashion. :D
P.S. As you can see, I'm not the best photographer, but I'm working on it! ;)
P.P.S: Prepare yourselves for a picture overload! :D
I must admit that Balenciaga's are one of the best bags I own for
everyday use. They have a lot of space inside, which is perfect for a girl like me who stuffs
almost everything in her bag. :D
Plus, they can survive in even the worst circumstances. My cat likes to chew on the strings or
sharpen his nails on the leather while I'm not looking, but the bag still looks amazing.
One Balenciaga is missing in the picture, I couldn't find it. I think my sister took it.
It's a grey / anthracite one, and you can see it in the last picture.
This Burberry-bag is mostly used by my mom.
I love the fact that she didn't buy a bag with the typical beige Burberry-print on it.
I prefer these types of Burberry-bags a lot more! Just a subtle Burberry-touch because of the small
logo. I'm not a fan of anything with an enormous logo in it.
What's there to say about Chanel-bags?
I'm in love with the classic line! The medium bag in lambskin leather with golden hardware is mine,
while my sister owns a mini bag in caviar leather with silver hardware.
I rarely use my sister's Chanel, since it is way too small for me!
If you'd like to buy a classic Chanel-bag, I'd go for the caviar leather, since it's much more durable and hardly scratches. I really have to be careful with my lambskin bag, since it scratches very easily!
I'm hoping to buy a jumbo / maxi (still haven't decided) with golden hardware soon, since they're big enough for every day use, and I'll definitely go for caviar leather this time!
Dolce & Gabbana
The brown Dolce & Gabbana-bag is mine, while the purple one is my sister's.
You'll immediately see the difference on how we treat our bags. While she puts her bags nicely away
in their dust bag and paper to fill it up so that the bag keeps it original shape, I must admit that
I'm not that disciplined. And I guess you can see the result. Shame on me.
I really have to pull myself together and treat my bags with the softness and gentleness they deserve.
Again, no huge logo but just a subtle hint.
My mom's Just Cavalli-bag.
I like the soft leather and the details, but I must admit that the quality isn't that optimal.
A while ago, the shoulder strap came loos from the rest of the bag. My mom found someone
who stitched it back in place nicely, but we thought it would last longer before the bag would show
it first defects. She still payed quite some money for it, so ... Oh well, you don't see it at all that it had to be stitched, so no harm done!
My Longchamp Légende-bag.
It was a gift from my mom and it was my first 'designer-bag'. I can remember how proud I was
when I found out Kate Moss had the same one.
Here's another perfect example of me and my treatment on bags. The shape is out of it a little bit...
Or a lot. But luckily, the shape returns as soon as I put enough things in the bag.
And believe me, I don't have any problems with putting unnecessary things in my bags. :D
I must admit that the bag is quite heavy without anything in it, so with all the stuff I carry around, it seems I've worked out at the gym when I get home after a day with this bag. I took this bag on my trip to Paris, since it can survive the worst weather conditions, and my arm became so numb at the end of the day, my dad had to carry it. :D
My sister's Marc Jacobs-bag.
This bag has been in her closet for way too long, so I'm thinking to use it more often myself.
I still have to find a fitting outfit for it, since I find the green color quite unusual.
I'm thinking about an all black-outfit, which will do the bag all the justice it needs.
My aunt gave this bag to my sister as a birthday-present a couple of years ago.
She never wore it - shame on you, sister! - and I must admit - shame on me - that I totally forgot
about the bag ... Until today!
I completely fell in love with it. It's big enough to put all my crap in it and again, it has a subtle reference to Stella McCartney, just the way I like it.
My mom was giving me a lecture on how I never used this bag (even if it is my sister's),
but that will change from now on. I'm definitely going to use this baby more often!
This was about it.
I hope you enjoyed this post and I also hope I can add some new beauties to my collection soon. :D
And I would also like to thank all of you for your sweet comments.
I appreciate every single one of them, and I do my best to reply on your questions!
