BRITTANY: "Mom, I'm feeling bags today. What do you think?"
MOM/JUDY: "Ummm...just handbags? What about a designer you know that no one else knows and you put them on your site?"
M/J: "What about a collection you really love that's on sale."
B: "Mmmmm, nah."
M/J: "Well I don't know what to tell you then..."
B: "Whoaaaaa...Barneys.com has a massive sale right now. Oh my god, you have to see this white Jil Sander bag."
M/J: (She stays on the couch reading her book, unfazed) "See if you can find me a navy clutch."
Sometimes, inspiration comes from Vogue, and sometimes, it comes from your mother reading on her couch in Sarasota, Florida. So goes life. I guess that's why they say inspiration is everywhere? Going with it.
I went insane over the markdowns on Barneys.com bags this morning so guess what? You get to see my 7 favorite picks! Lucky, you.
And no, I didn't find that navy clutch. The hunt continues...
(FYI they didn't have much left this morning, but what was there, I was impressed by):
Thakoon Hudson Saddle Bag
Because I can't get enough dusty rose in my life, and this has a crossbody strap. Does it get any better?
Alexander Wang Prisma Backpack
A fur-lined backpack is always a good idea, unless you live in Dallas and it's summer.
3.1 Phillip Lim Quill Bucket Bag-White
Gorge-ous. Love. Can't get enough. Can't write anything except fragmented sentences. Yea.
Rag & Bone Small Bradbury Flap-Front Hobo
The petite size, plus a few small cut-out details, won me over on this hobo. It's a great everyday crossbody as well, especially for when you're out and about traveling.
Marni Colorblocked Mini-Backpack
It's mini so it won't overpower any outfit, plus that deep forest green leather looks ah-mazing.
Jil Sander Market Tote
This is the tote that got my initial attention. I love the shape, the size, the simplicity, all of it. And the sale price is, well, shocking.
Alexander Wang Emile Mini-Crossbody-Pink
A blush bag is a must-have, or so 'they' say. I happen to agree. Heading into winter with an accessory in this hue is a simple way to refresh your wardrobe.
Small, yet effective.
p.s. Love you mom.
