You know what I’ve been doing the last two days? Looking for a new bag. I’ve become convinced that I NEED a new bag – a tote specifically – and when that happens, I cannot stop until I find the perfect one. This Hope leather bag at Totokaelo is what started the obsession:
I love it – the color, the shape, the long shoulder strap…but I am worried that it will be hard to find stuff in, and that maybe the strap will be a bit long on me (and it’s not adjustable). But I do want to stay right around this price range ($300).
Here’s what else I’ve found:
I’m kind of intrigued by this Marc by Marc Jacobs satchel. It caught my eye first, because of the color and embossing, and second, I like the shape. It’s way more ladylike than I usually go for, but supposedly that’s the “it” shape for handbags this Fall, so….
I posted this Sara Berman for the Outnet bag last week in black, but if I buy it, I’ll get it in this olive/gray color. I like it, but I’m not 100% sold on it. Still looks deep.
I’ve loved Romy Gold’s bags since they first came out and this one is now an extra 40% off with code SALEITEMS until Sunday (9/26) at My Obsessions…which makes it VERY tempting. But it’s black 🙁
This is Rick Owens, which means it’s WAY out of my price range right now, but it would be exactly what I’d buy if I could.
Then, I was poking around heist earlier this morning, checking out their selection of Jerome Dreyfuss bags, and it seems like the price has gone down a bit on the medium size? Now it’s $695…maybe worth saving up for? I loved my silver billy bag, but it was the large size, and just too large. And his leather is TDF.
*sigh* what to do? I get paralyzed with these types of decisions because when I buy a bag, I want it to be perfect, and last forever. Which one would you get?
I vote Jerome Dreyfus — it’s beautiful! Maybe wait a month or so until the sales hit. I agree with what you’re saying about the totes being too deep as I’ve made that mistake before. BTW have you checked out Furla’s bags – might be what you’re looking for (but more $$)
I’d get the Marc Jacobs but I’m a MJ whore. Ignoring that, I like the structured shape, the leather, and the strap if you need your hands free. I feel like the bag would become a classic you can pull out of the closet (or wherever you store your bags) year after year – and maybe pass down!

I love the Marc Jacobs bag! I’ve been poking around for a good tote with a fancy shape, and that one is awesome. Love your choices!
I like the Marc Jacobs, too. It’s sleek and beautiful, plus it looks like a size and shape that would help you keep everything inside it in order and easily accessible.

I’d be all over that Sara Berman for the Outnet bag in the olive/gray color. It’s got “Val” written all over it! (deep-schmeep! I usually end up digging through whatever bag I have anyway!!).
