Although I probably smell, sometimes, maybe.
I am starting to think I’m not super into bags as a reaction to my mom who owns enough bags to wear a different one every day of the year. Don’t worry, I buy a lot of shoes.
I seem to carry really heavy things/am clumsy, as a result all the straps of my bags break within a week. I owe my signature clutches (did you barf when I said “signature”?) to this sad truth.
I’ve been craving bucket bags lately though. Here’s my selection:
1. The aspirational bag: Mansur Gavriel bucket bag, 495$. Sadly can’t afford it as I bought 3 pairs of shoes this month (one was almost free, one was reasonable and one cost an arm, even at 50% off).
2. The throwback bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs ‘Too Hot To Handle’, 187£. I’m not sure if I had a bag like this as a kid, but its size reminds me of when all I had to carry in my bag was like, 3 pencils and a granola bar.
3. The ‘sure, why not?’ bag: & other stories leather bag, 95£. While I suspect the rope drawstring that also serves as a strap isn’t the most practical thing ever, it looks pretty cool in its lack of sophistication (you could call it minimalism).
