My 2015 Handbag Wishlist!

Hiya everyone!

As I packed last night for my trip to London, I realized that I my handbag collection is pretty weak.  Back when I had a lot of disposable income (pre-cars and pre-mortgage), I used to treat myself to a new designer bag once a year.  It has been a reaaaal long time since that happened!  My last amazing handbag purchase was a bronze metallic Prada Vitello Daino bag.  While I love it, it’s very “autumn” looking and it’s also very delicate (metallic leather does not like scratches!!).

So, I took a break from packing and scoured my favourite sites and compiled a list of bags I would acquire if I miraculously won the lottery – haha!


Céline Trapèze Bag in Royal – I would probably murder for this bag.

Classic Chanel Flap Bag in Medium – my God, I want this bag.


While we’re on Chanel…might as well throw in a cherry red Boy Bag!  Why not?

Nice, roomy Proenza Schouler PS1 Bag in Medium

Celine Medium Classic Box Bag.  I’d use this for life.


And lastly, a nice, practical Alexander Wang Prisma Backpack in Oyster leather!


If you had unlimited funds, what bags would make your wishlist?? Please share in the comments!

        Oh I know what you mean. I always thought it would be so neat to own a nice bag like that someday. For now I will stick with bargain bags lol. 🙂

    No murdering anyone for a handbag!
    I like the Fendi 2Jours best but I’m boring. 😛

    • April 21, 2015 / 10:05 pm

      Haha! Promise – everyone is safe! Lol! I LOVE that Fendi bag. So feminine. I looked at it and it comes in 2 sizes (that I saw). The large is humongous.

  3. April 21, 2015 / 9:18 pm

    I really loved that Fendi bag, it’s so my style?

    • April 21, 2015 / 10:04 pm

      Omg. Love it too. So lady like!!! I wish we could have them all!

    Celine’s bags . Love ! My next bag to get would probably be one of the recent shoulder bags by YSL. I’m not sure which yet. Still on the hunt ! Fun post 🙂

    • April 21, 2015 / 10:03 pm

      Thanks babe! I know those YSL’s – very nice!!!

  5. April 21, 2015 / 11:08 pm

    Ah, that Fendi piece … Love. You compile a beautiful wishlist, lady. 🙂

  6. April 22, 2015 / 2:35 am

    Probably some Louis Vuittons. I like the Fendi 2jours and Celine on your list.

    • April 22, 2015 / 8:05 am

      Thanks! I agree. I’d love a whole set of LV luggage!!!

  7. April 22, 2015 / 4:55 am

    I really like the Celine bag, it’s so simple and chic! On another note you’re coming to London woo! Hope you enjoy you’re trip 🙂 Jay x

          • April 25, 2015 / 4:43 am

            Awesome! I can’t wait! Looking forward to it! 🙂

          • April 26, 2015 / 8:23 am

            We went to Selfridge’s yesterday, Katie!!! We got to scope out Mulberry, Balenciaga, Prada and Céline bags!!! All so gorgeous – all so pricey!

          • April 28, 2015 / 12:51 am

            Awe that sounds so lovely! Sounds like you’re having so much fun!! <3 xo

  11. April 24, 2015 / 2:14 am

    That Céline Trapèze is killer, what a colour! I love both of the Chanel bags too and the Fendi in large.. actually, all of them please! 🙂 x

  12. April 24, 2015 / 8:09 pm

    Beautiful choices! I’m a fan of Chloé and Givenchy, myself.

    • April 25, 2015 / 4:32 am

      Thanks! I love Givenchy, personally. Busch great accessories! I would also love a Givenchy Pandora bag.

      • April 25, 2015 / 8:05 am

        Pandora’s my fave! I was able to splurge on a Pandora in France a couple of yrs ago (hey, it’s less expensive there!) and it’s wonderful. Now to save for a Nightingale, haha.

        • April 26, 2015 / 8:15 am

          Thank you! We had a look at it (in a different colour) here in London at Selfridge’s! Gorgeous!! $$$$

        • April 26, 2015 / 8:18 am

          Hi fivezero! Love the Pandora too! They are such a cool, unique shape! Love the Nightingale too. A friend of mine has a beautiful one in purple!

          • April 27, 2015 / 9:50 am

            That sounds like it’d be amazing!

  13. April 26, 2015 / 8:16 am

    That Celine Trapeze is absolutely everything…the color is amazing. Of course you can’t ever go wrong with Chanel…love the cherry red.

    • April 30, 2015 / 8:17 am

      Haha! Thanks! Maybe you and I can convince my husband of this! Lol! He’s very “You have a thousand bags already! Why buy more?” – lol!

  14. May 6, 2015 / 10:39 am

    The boy bag is on my wish list too – such a beautiful bag. Great for casual or formal and just steps out of the classic quilted Chanel look. A couple others on my list are Balenciaga Giant City and Chloe Paraty. Oh the list is growing!

    • May 6, 2015 / 11:16 am

      Hahaha! I looooove the Balenciaga Giant City! I need to check out this Chloé bag!! Thanks for checking out my post! ;o)

  15. May 13, 2015 / 1:28 pm

    If I had unlimited funds… I’d buy the extra large Dior gaucho bags – in all colours. 😀
