INSATIABLE

The bag edit


The charm that comes with the Sophie Hulme mini tote

I’m sorry to drone on about bags again, but beyond all the more important issues and serious things that I'm confronted with in life, I have a penchant for bags – they’re the root of many of my euphoric moments and therefore I like to idolise them, buy them and post about them.

The Sophie Hulme bag, my latest purchase, filled me with glee when the sales assistant clocked it through the till and gave me my little accompanying charm, and for a good couple of weeks I was satisfied: I didn't look or lust after any other bag because I was content with my upgraded bag collection. No doubt I would have continued to be content had I not signed up to Instagram. You see, the problem is (with me) that no sooner I see another stylish ‘being’ donning an enviable handbag I am left coveting yet another tote, shopper or clutch. You’d think I’d be satisfied with the bags I have and as much as I love my collection, I still want more -  I’m insatiable -  darn you Instagram!  

My bag edit - hopefully soon to grace my wardrobe:

    1. The only thing that puts me off the Chanel one is that they are very commonplace now, but I certainly wouldn't say no!

  5. Ahaah, you made me so smile! Colleen, I know you will upgrade soon your bag closet, I feel it!:) But I also understand you, if I have to choose between bags or shoes, the first ones are my true love, as if for your. At the moment my obsession is the Baylee by Chloe, but from ages Im addicted to the Antigona by Givenchy and the Cabas Chyc by YSL. The ones you listes are all amazing, if I have to pick one, I'd grab too the Luggage tote by Celine; also love the Chanel boy, a sleek and timeless chic purse.
    Hope you had a lovely weekend dear, have a great week! xo

  6. We all have that one thing that is special to us, and that we can't stop buying, no matter whether or not we need anymore or how wonderful our collection becomes. For me, it's lipstick. It's a small, silly thing but I can never have enough shades - even when I get a new one that seems perfect, that satisfaction is short lived. So I know where you're coming from :) And this selection of handbags is just wonderful. I'd love to welcome a Celine luggage tote into my closet. And a Sophie Hulme bag, too, come to that!

  7. I don't know how you feel about knock-offs buuuuut...

    CLICK :)

    I've been lusting for that one too.:)

    1. oooh nooo I can't do knock- offs, just one of my principles. I don't mind high street imitating catwalk trends (maybe double standards) because, well, that's what the high street is about, but a full blown knock-off where you are trying to pass it off as the authentic product doesn't do it for me. I wish it did!

    2. I'd never say something is authentic, when it wasn't, but I have a pair of wedge sneakers that look exactly like Isabel Marant's. I always say that they're fake, but around here no one actually knows who Isabel Marant is anyway.:D

  8. I see you love bags so much,especially the classy cool ones,that's great. I don't see anything wrong in getting more more bags,buy as much as you love to babes.The chanel is my favorite but am not ready to splash such money yet, maybe later in the future you never know.I done that purchasing a Ysl bag 2-3yrs years ago and that kept me on toast bread &tea for many months lol but Count me in
    when it comes to cute dramatic weird bags especially clutch bags with quotes or some stuffs written on it.,I am a great fan. All these bags you have listed are super fabulous.
    Happy Monday babes,Muwah....

    1. aaaaw you made me chuckle about the bread and tea. I don't doubt for a second that there's a lot of people that do this just to be able to don their designer piece. I love food as much as bags, so that's unlikely to happen to me ha ha x

    2. Lol... Just checking on you. I wanna see a new post soon,wanna see you rock. Have a love weekend. Sweet dreams.

  9. I totally understand you! I loved the Chanel one! I am the same, not about bags, but shoes. So, right now I am not coveting any bag, but... of course, shoes! denisesplanet com

  10. Are you saying you're getting off Instagram because it's tempts you with bag images? Don't you dare. Hahaha. Your wish list is indeed very organised. My favourite in your list is the Chanel one, then the Adidas. It's so retro and very cool. I'm not currently lusting after any bag or brand of bag. I'm lusting after shoes more. But I'm so sleepy right now I can't even think of anything. Hahahha. Let us know what your next steal or splurge is :D Have a lovely week xxx

    1. Yeah and your Kelly didn't help matters either ha ha. The Kelly has been on my previous list - you may recall - but when I've posed with it, it didn't suit me as well as the others. I do like the Chanel, but as I said in another comment, they are a little commonplace now - every other Insta post is a blooming Chanel bag. No doubt my next 'splurge' will be the Adidas at under £50!! Anyway hope you enjoyed the snooze! x

  11. Dear Colleen, although I don´t have Instagram I discover nearly daily a bag which I would like to own, the Chanel you show here, the Céline and the Saint Laurent Satchel belongs to them :) I think with bags this is a really special thing: if you one one, this is the start for the craving for the next cool bag ... Wish you that you will have all the bags you show here very soon in your closet!

    Happy rest of the week for you <3

  12. You are not alone!
    No matter the number of shoes or clothes I own, I can't stop craving more! Lol
    I love that Mulberry bag and the Celine tote is super gorgeous!

  13. I can't resist gorgeous bags whether they be totes, clutches ....alll the different styles. I certainly never tire of looking at new designs. Mulberry is a favourite brand of mine I have had my eye on the Willow from the day it came out! It's such a clever design. The tan version here is gorgeous and perfect for all seasons too. Two bags in one (I don't need any more persuading!!) I didn't know about the clutch from the Cambridge Satchel Company - in the palest pink - cute!
