Semi-Designer Bag Collection



Hello, everyone! I hope that you are all well! I know that I've been posting a lot recently, but I keep getting new ideas for blog posts and I can't let them go, haha!

For today's post, I thought I'd talk about the semi-designer bags that I own. I call them "semi-designer" because while they are indeed designer bags, they aren't super high end (meaning no Chanel or YSL - yet!). However, I still love them dearly. 

I know that some people don't see the point in purchasing more expensive handbags, and I get that. However, I think we all have our vices. Some people love cars, others like electronics, and for some it's jewelry or watches. I've been very blessed to be able to receive the majority of these as gifts, and I definitely enjoy using all of them. :)

Let's get started:


So this bag is the Coach Cora Domed Satchel, and it retails for about $200. I really love the bright red color and gold plated detailing, even if it is hard to pair with certain items. It is large enough to hold a medium sized wallet, phone, keys, etc. It has a shoulder strap which is quite nice because sometimes my arm gets sore after carrying the bag on it for a while.


I know this photo is kind of funny - I was admiring my manicure, haha.  This bag is the Coach Small Margot Carryall in black with gold plated detailing, and it typically retails for around $375. This is the bag that I use most often because black goes with pretty much anything. It has a shoulder strap as well as handles so that you can decide how you want to carry it. It's also very spacious, with various pockets and a center zipper pouch.




This is an older bag, but it was my first 'real' semi-designer handbag. This is the Dooney & Bourke Black and White Zebra Satchel Bag with a Red Interior. I really like how the stripes look on this bag - they aren't too small or too close together, if that makes any sense. The interior, as previously mentioned, is a bright red. I actually like it because it is a pop of color in an otherwise neutral-toned bag.


Okay, so I know that these aren't handbags, but I thought I'd include them, anyway. The first piece is a black and white checkered
 wallet from Betsey Johnson. This is the wallet that I have used for a while. I really love the heart pattern, especially because it is rather understated.

Finally, the last piece is a bright pink Dior cosmetics bag. I actually purchased this through a promotion from Sephora. In case you didn't know, Sephora has a points program that gives you one point per one dollar spent. So, once you get a certain number of points over time (in this case it was 500), you can redeem them for other products. The product that I chose was this cosmetics bag which also included a bunch of Dior products. I love using this bag because it is big enough to fit what you need, but not so big that you can't carry it with you.

So, that's my current collection! Let me know in the comment what you think, or what kind of products you like!

Have a beautiful day,
Sydney
