Recent Bag Reviews

After getting what you could call my holy grail bag, the Hermes Toolbox 20, mentioned here, I was surprised to find myself continuing to shop for bags, though I didn't keep them all, of course. Here's a few of what I tried out:

Left: Tabitha Saddle Bag in Mimosa Yellow. Right: Tabitha Saddle Bag in Rosebay.
First up is the Tabitha Saddle Bag from Boden. I decided to try it just because I was so drawn to the pretty Rosebay color but I actually liked the Mimosa Yellow better on me. I just can't justify keeping this when I don't love it compared to what I just purchased so these are going back but I can see them as a very practical bag for commuting to work when you don't have a lot to bring with you.

Cuyana Mini Circle Belt Bag in XS/S Black
Second is this Cuyana Mini Circle Belt Bag that I've had my eye on for a while since it was out of stock and finally came back again. Ever since my Athens trip, I've been looking for a small, lightweight bag that would be good for traveling and I've found it here! I actually am not showing it worn around my waist as it's intended to be worn because I don't plan on wearing it that way but that's also a very convenient way to carry this. I have it on the longest length here in the photos. I will most likely wear it crossbody when traveling but I like it on my shoulder for everyday wear.

Mansur Gavriel Elegant Bag in Navy Suede (I love my mini! <3)
I didn't get a chance to go to the first ever Mansur Gavriel sample sale but a friend was able to help me pick up the Elegant Bag in navy suede, which I loved from her photos but realized when I received it that it doesn't comfortably fit on my shoulder because of the frame - I just wish there were an extra inch of space. I'm probably not going to keep this but I do like how lightweight and simple it is for commuting to work.
Lastly is this cheapie bag from Target that I couldn't help loving because of the cute design and color. I can see myself using this for quick errands in the summer. :)

Also while here, just wanted to share these super cute Naida Half-Bow Sandals from Madewell that I recently purchased and love. They're comfortable and I decided to keep the Stone because the suede Dusty Clay ones were a bit tight at the front as opposed to the linen material of the striped ones.
