Are you that girl? You know, the one who likes to carry her bag instead of sling it over her shoulder? If so, you’re in luck this season. Bazaar has declared that clutches & satchels are “in” for fall (aren’t they always? when do they ever go out??); maybe it’s the ladylike trend that always seems to come back around every fall. Anyway, there are SO MANY good options to choose from, whether you prefer a more structured satchel, or a slouchy one (like the Givenchy pandora. yum.)
I love all kinds of bags, but my favorite style is one that has top handles and a longer strap for versatility. These are the bags I always end up taking on trips (my beloved Jas M.B. wings traveler bags). And while I like having the option of the shorter handles to carry by hand, I hardly ever do – I generally just sling the bags over my shoulder, or less frequently, wear them crossbody.
Right now, I WISH I was that girl who could carry a small bag, and a bag with fuchsia haircalf on it, so I could get that small 3.1 Phillip Lim ryder satchel But I’m not, so I will probably end up with the black larger version, which is absolutely gorgeous also…
What do you think of the satchel selection this fall? Will you buy one?
