Savvy Mode SG said...

my first love is of course the quilted chanel bag but have my eyes on a ysl tribute bag in a bright color.

WendyB said...

The last time I had a quilted bag, it was a faux Chanel in 1983 or so. I'm still traumatized by that.

Fashion Moment said...

I have cream color Miu Miu, and it's for all weather! Great selection, darling, and I like YSL, Miu Miu, and Old Navy.
Have a wonderful Monday evening,

Irène said...

Wow, all are beautiful, but I like the red-white one most. (:

Diego R. Wyatt said...

Yes yes yes to quilted bags! The Chanel 2.55 is iconic and the only designer who can even rival Chanel in quilted bags is Marc Jacobs who makes the classic quilted bag look modern and quirky. I also love the gold leather clutch, the Balenciaga goatskin bag and the Chanel wristlet is adorable.

Blair said...

Oh, I love quilted bags! And completely agree that they can work for the warm months as well. Great round up! Hope you had a fantastic weekend.

rossovelvet said...

The STAM !!!! I'm obsessed. I'll buy one next year but to choose the color it will be EPIC !
I also have a vintage Chanel, big and really special...

Dana said...

Wanderlusting said...

Can't go wrong with Chanel, and I love MJ Stam except that there are so many imitations out there (why bother buying it when everyone thinks its fake anyway?)

I would totally go with Miu Miu, freakin love that shape and colour!!

thefatandskinnyonfashion said...

I love all these bags. I will that chanel one day.

Carla said...

La Belette Rouge said...

This title made me think you took up quilting, i.e. that you were taking old dresses and cutting them up to make quilts.

fashion herald said...

mmmm to the little quilted gold clutch, and the Stam. But the preppy clutch is just too fun.

Flashes of Style said...

Oh these are great totes! I love the orange one.

AsiaValentina said...

Sigh I love the Mui Mui one... WIf I win the lottery I will get the Mui Mui and Chanel.

I just won a purse similar to the Marc Jacobs at a fashion show... I nicely gave it to my friend who was attending the show with moi... she loved it!
I like that black patent one in your post!!! I would not have given that one up! lol
BTW... you should tell the girls in your header... it's not good to smoke in bed!

Lil Midget said...

I love the rope! Especially on bags and shoes...and perhaps around the waist! has an almost hippie or antique feel to it :D

Delmy said...
