Structured Bags


1. Houndstooth Satchel 

2. Mint Front Lock Shoulder Bag

3. Orange/Taupe Satchel

4. Structured Rectangular Tote

5. White and Black Paneled Bag

6. Erin Exotic Satchel

There is nothing I love more than a structured bag, and after seeing some lust-worthy satchels on Vogue, I decided to find some that had a more reasonable price tag. My love for structured bags and satchels never seems to end as I posted some options last fall (here) and #6 is almost the exact same bag I purchased from Handbag Heaven last spring (can be seen here and here). I personally love the blue rectangular tote and might have to add it to next month’s shopping budget!
What bag are you currently carrying OR craving? Do you prefer structured or slouchy style bags?

    Ooh I love a good satchel, too. I try not to waste money on purses- I have a classic brown one, a black one, and then a few clutches. If I had the money, I’d buy a few of these though!

    I consider bag my “splurge” item, but I try to always invest in ones that are going to last me a while. These are very reasonable and so cute! I love that mint one.

      Alyssa, I usually do that too, but lately I love so many styles it has been hard to resist just buying multiple bags. But honestly, I never switch them so I usually buy a bag wear it out then onto the next!

    Bags. Oh how I love thee! It depends on my mood, sometime I like something with more structure, sometimes I like something more slouchy/hobo like. I love the houndstooth one at the top!

    Right now I’m carrying kind of a patchwork shoulder Coach bag that I was lucky enough to find at the thrift store!

    I almost exclusively buy satchels because they are roomy and they keep me organized. I love the black and white one!

      You nailed it! This is EXACTLY why I love satchels and structured bags. They help me keep organized with my planner and when I’m bringing stuff home from work!

    I love the white and black one. I love a structured bag or a floppy (floppy?) one.

    Awesome picks Rachel. Like you I love a good structure bag. I hate it when my bags gets all slouchy and fall all over the place. I think my favorite bag is the black and white panel #5. It’s really unique and a totally classy. The price is totally awesome too!
