i’m a shoe girl at heart…through & through.  i do however go through periods of being a bag hag.  this is one of them…hahaha!  just some of my latest acquisitions…a tote bag for daily use, a convertible crossbody to clutch & a very ladylike floral purse.

this tory burch faille handbag comes in such a pretty print with a resin chain handle & seems equally suitable for use during the fall & spring.  so demure & proper, yet fun & girly.  i fell in love with it as soon as i saw it in saks off fifth at wrentham premium outlets during a recent blogger shopping trip.  there were many other tory burch bags in all sizes & prints…i really wanted to take all of them home :(

i was lucky to snag one of the covetable phillip lim x target bags…the large satchel tote in purple berry.  even though the zipper is not very stiff & wavy when unzipped, i am loving the bag & have received many compliments on it.  i’m not one to usually use a huge tote like this, but it’s very sturdy, structured & so far, holding up great to daily use!

finally, i had been loving the look of the celine triple clutch for a while now (even DIY’d my own) & was surprised that the michael kors outlet at wrentham had their own version…in lovely soft white leather with rose gold hardware.  ROSE GOLD HARDWARE!  when have you seen that?  coupled with the fact that i bought it courtesy of a gift card generously provided by wrentham premium outlets during our blogger field trip (my 3rd one that i’ve been invited to)…makes it even sweeter!  the 3-compartment clutch has a detachable strap, so could be easily used as a crossbody bag as well!  definitely putting the “fun” in functional!  there you have it, 3 different bags for 3 different occasions…should keep me busy & NO more bag shopping for a while…hahaha!

*DIY trio zip clutch*

image

i’m a big fan of luxirare & coveted her iphone 5 cases for a long time.  i never pressed ‘purchase’ however due to me being an android girl & worried my phone would never fit the case.  still, i was in love with the triple compartment design.

then, i saw a pair & a spare’s easy DIY of the similar (and bigger) celine trio bag & immediately wanted to try it (plus how adorable is little miss pair & a spare)!  i’m one of those rare species of girl that doesn’t carry a lot of stuff in my every day bag…my wallet, my phone, my camera & keys are pretty much it, but i do love how highly organized i can keep things now.

i found these cheapie clutches in the clearance aisle at target & decided to give this DIY a whirl.  if/when i find proper leather or suede clutches (finding 3 identical is pretty tough), then i’ll make more.  at least this colorblocked cobalt blue/black one is still pretty on trend with a strap i added from another handbag to make it a shoulder bag.  i couldn’t resist also the whimsical animal cameos of these clutches below (also on clearance at target) & this will be my smaller party-time triple clutch.  check out a pair & a spare’s post for the tutorial.  if you can sew a button snap, this really is the easiest & chicest DIY ever!
