Luxury Handbag VS. Bohemian Bag


When I was with my sister Mary in Shanghai during a weekend in September, she asked me, “What luxury handbag would you choose?” She really got me thinking because I couldn’t really come up with one. Of course I’d love the epic 2.55 Chanel quilted bag, but I’d want it to be a hand-me-down from a grandmother or something. The Celine bag is super chic and very popular, but it looks like it’s already heavy before anything is even inside it. The Goyard is cool, but I’d prefer another HK designer MISCHA tote, and the Balenciaga is edgy, but….I don’t. The Chloe Marcie is probably the closest to my bohemian pull. When it came down to it, I realized it is the boho, eclectic bag that I covet beyond an iconic luxury handbag. I do have my Louis Vuitton Speedy 35, and I love it, but it’s the story behind this bag that’s already becoming more precious. While living in India, I used to covet this bag. It wasn’t until last spring when I received a substantial sum of money that I splurged on myself. At the time it felt right to treat myself to this luxury handbag. But to tell you the truth, I generally gravitate toward the leopard, fringe, beaded or sequins, snake bag–which in the long run is a little easier on my purse strings! (Heehee–pun intended.)
