Structured Bags.....

After seasons of unstructured bags and totes, I am glad to see some structure in the bag world. Instead of the casual easy fashion, there is a movement toward lady-like, back of the basic trend.  I adore this structured bag trend because I am tired of all the casual bags in my closet. Besides, a structured bag can mix and match with both dressy and casual outfits, which is very versatile and savvy!

2. LV bag via Style.com
3. Nancy Gonzalez crocodile clutch $1300 via net-a-porter.com
4. Prada Saffiano Lux $1530 via Neiman Marcus --- There are lots of colors. My favorites are red and purple. There is also a beautiful mustard yellow.
5. Nancy Gonzalez patent croc $3200 via net-a-porter.com
6. Patent Lady Dior starts at $2250 via Neiman Marcus

Last but not least, my dream bag, Chanel Jumbo Classic Flap. I still can't believe this bag is over $4K after the price increase. What about you, are you loving this new trend?

  14. I love structure in my bags, but not so much so that they have a rigidness about them. :)

  15. I actually love structured bags. The key is making sure that it looks classy not dated. I've seen quite a few structured bags that scream 80 year old cat lady instead of classy.

    Whenever i carry i structured bag i always seem to stand a little taller and feel sophisticated.

  20. I still have structured bags from past years, so this trend doesn't excite me much.

  23. I can't believe Chanel did another price hike! =\ That being said, I do adore the Chanel Jumbo Classic Flap too. Love structured bags =D

  24. I like the Hermes Kelly one best. It depends on the purpose of the outing. If to a nice dinner, then a structured bag is my preferred choice but for my everyday use, I love my MJ messenger bag.

  25. I tried the Prada bag at Neiman, and it was cute and very classic. I can see myself using that for many years.

  26. Love structured bags! My latest buy was a vintage Saks Fifth Avenue bag dating from the 1950s, but I'll be getting good use out of my Chanel classic flap jumbo too. (Whew, seeing that price increase makes me glad I bought it two years ago!)

  27. I love them too. I am glad for the return of the structured bags. And the colors are fabulous.

    :D

  28. @Lisa: I am with you. I used to think $1400 for a classic Chanel was expensive. Now, I don't think I will be buying one anything soon!

  29. Oh I'm SO upset about the price increase in the Jumbo Flap. Not that I was close to owning one, but now I'm much further away!

  30. The Chanel is my dream bag too! in the meantime since structured bags are in, time to dust my lower cost leather bag. ;)
