Dream designer bags

Whether it's a Birkin or a Chanel 2.55, (nearly) every girl dreams of designer handbags. I really treasure the ones I have, but I'm afraid I'm still hungry for more. So I made a little list of the bags I'm lusting after the most (thanks to Esmée's post). Most of them are classic, black because I think when you invest in a designer bag, you should be able to use a lot.

Givenchy Antigona small tote (here)
Number 1 on my wish list. It's classic but modern at the same time. I would, however, opt for grainy leather, instead of this smooth leather. I also love the bright red, beige and light blue versions of this bag. 

Prada Saffiano Lux tote bag (here)
Another timeless classic which will never go out of style. This bag looks good in nearly every colour and is the perfect day bag as it's quite spacious. I love it!

Alexander Wang Rockie bowling bag (here)
I think there are so many replicas of the Alexander Wang Rocco bag that I think it's almost not worth buying the real deal. I've also heard that they are really heavy, which I'm not really looking for in a bag. But the new Rockie - the tiny version of the Rocco - is so cute! I already wrote a post about my love for mini handbags, and I'd love to have either this Rockie or the mini Céline luggage bag. Also perfect to pass on to your baby girl in the future right? 

Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere (here)
Wildly overpriced compared to the classic Speedy, but so beautiful. I love this little bowling bag! Similar shape to the Rockie above, but with cool golden details and imprinted leather. One of the more subtle Vuitton bags, and that's why I like it. 

Saint Laurent Belle de Jour leather clutch
The perfect clutch bag for every evening look. Another classic (have you noticed I love classic pieces?). I've seen this a couple times and it looks so elegant. 

Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM in Damier canvas
One of the "cheaper" bags on this list, but also one of the most practical ones. I take my laptop everywhere I go, so this bag would be perfect for traveling. Not very original, but nonetheless beautiful and I'm sure I would use it a lot. 

Chanel Classic Flap Bag in quilted lambskin (here)
How could I not include the most classic of all, a Chanel? I do like the very mini version of the 2.55, but any will do ;) 

As you can see, I like black classic handbags the most; they are the most versatile and never go out of style. Designer bags also don't lose their value so much, and I think it's an amazing thing to keep, cherish and pass on to your kids in the future. They can add all the glamour to any simple outfit and that's what I love. I think every woman should invest in at least one great designer bag at some point in her life; it's essential.
