If you send a girl to the mall to make returns . . . she might get distracted by shoes and handbags.
If she gets distracted by shoes and handbags, she might spend her fall clothing budget in one fell swoop!
Okay, so I didn’t do that JUST yet, but I’m thinking about it.
September will be here before we know it, and it will be time to lovingly pack away my summer handbags. I don’t really have a go-to handbag for fall/winter, and I sold quite a few of my bags last spring so I’m looking to replenish my arsenal.
I’m loving the structured bag trend. In fact, I have two slouchy leather bags in my closet that I’m going to put on eBay this week because I haven’t carried them in a year. They’re so inconvenient because it’s hard to find things inside, and they end up in a puddle every time I put them down.
I love the practicality of a nice structured satchel or tote. I was perusing bags in Macy’s today, and here is a list of my top picks. Most of these are an extra 15% off with promo code TICKET.
6 Structured Handbags for Fall
I’ve been eying up the Michael Kors totes for a while now. This black python with contrast handles is gorgeous for winter, and it’s on sale for $170.99. This one has a zipper (which I like) although some of the MK totes do not. The price isn’t for the faint of heart, but for a bag of this size in leather, it’s a good value.
I looked at this bag for a while today. I like that it is roomy without being huge. It comes in a myriad of pretty colors, and it’s genuine leather on sale for $118.99 plus 15% off.
If you’re a Dooney fan, their leather Logo Lock Tote is on sale for $198 and comes in this gorgeous navy blue — a hot color for fall. I noticed a lot of navy blue in the handbag department today. It also comes in a nice saddle tan.
There are plenty of great bags for under $100 too. This satchel is $87.99 plus 15% off. For those who like to stay organized, it has 3 compartments, a zip pocket, 2 open pockets, 3 pen loops, 3 card slots and ID window.
I’m always a sucker for a red bag, and this one is super cute. For $72.99 and 15% off, it’s not a bad deal, but it isn’t leather, if that matters to you.
This orange nylon bag with contrasting shoulder straps is calling my name. It is reminiscent of the popular nylon bags by other designers but at a much better price point. At $53.99 plus 15% off, it’s hard to go wrong! It also comes in gray and black.
Which one is your fave? Are you thinking ahead to fall yet?
