i've had my eyes on the blue Miu Miu large bowling bag since it came out on net-a-porter, i'm so hoping it would go into the sales this summer so i can buy it! PLEASE go into sale please!

Allison said...

Wonderful trend - I'm very much a fan of all of these bags! Excellent selection as always, darling CC!
Hope your weekend was amazing.

you scare me - you always seem to know what i'm searching for or what i'm currently into. i'm digging that miu miu bag.

and i'm jealous of your size 11 feet. why? cuz that means you're prolly TALL. ;)

That miu miu bag is lush! I did manage to pick up a Luella bowling style one at an outlet though, so practical.

Helena said...

I honestly don't get this bag fashion. So they are spacy but aren't they a bit hard to carry in everyday use? Well, what wouldn't a woman do for her looks. I admit I use a backbag myself (a stylish one) but at special occasions I naturally have something more feminine.

I saw the photos of Jessica Alba in those D&G suits on Coco's Tea Party, I admire her guts to break out of the standard 'slinky, backless dress' red carpet formula, but I don't think she quite pulled it off.

My first proper handbag was a bowling bag - bright pink fake leather - ah, to be 12 again! The Miu Miu and Prada offerings are my favourite.

Savvy Mode SG said...

My favorite bowling bag is still the prada black nylon from years ago.

shopinchic said...

I absolutely j'adore the Lanvin black patent bowling bag.

Frieda l'écuyère said...

I remember, when bowling bags were everywhere, some years ago. Fashion ? Always the same, always different !

The Seeker said...

OMG I love all those bags!!!

xoxo

Modelizer said...

I actually saw someone wearing bowling shoes in the subway last night [real ones, wtf] and remembered the trend and hoped it wasn't coming back. I don't mind the bags, but if the shoes come back in style, I'm just going to lock myself in a closet until they go away again. I can't handle it again.

Bibbi-Jeanette said...

Oh, the last miumiu bag is fantastic!

Emily said...

My favorite is the Miu Miu one :)

Camille said...

AsianCajuns said...

I remember the bowling bag trend of the late 90s. I was all over it - until I realized that most of those styles can't be slung on the shoulder - I need a longer strap!

UberOriginal said...

I have to say I'm not a fan of the 'bowling bag' I find them ugly. But that being said the Prada one isn't the bad ;) I mean if someone offered it to me I wouldn't turn it down! xx

Dooder City said...

The Miu Miu bag is just perfect.

strikeapose said...

Not a fan of bowler bags..but I do quite love the prada gold one.

Emerald Dandy said...

Dearest CC,

The Lanvin, Miu Miu, and Prada are absolutely STUNNING.

Though I must add you missed one very perfect trophy bag: The oversized YSL Muse!!

I myself am lusting one of those as well... so clean yet beautiful.

Hope all is well, CC :-)

drinkupthefashion said...

bowling bags have never been my thing. but i love the lanvin one (mostly because it doesn't really look like a bowling bag) and the miu miu large bowler. the bottega veneta one is cool too.

Sasi said...

I have to say I don't own a bowling bag, not my fave kind of bag. But the Lanvin one is to die for!

Diane said...

i LOVE the red/white/black one! so fab!!!
