My Purse Collection

September 23, 2015

I would say that I’m definitely a girl who loves a good purse! I keep my collection to a minimum, so all of the pieces I have definitely serve a purpose, and I consider each of them a true investment. I don’t wear a purse every single day, and I probably should add a bit more color to my purse collection in the near future, but for now, these are PERFECT!!


She + Lo is a great brand for an edgy look, and the quality of their purses for the price is really nice.  This bag has been my go-to purse lately. It’s not too small, not too big, and fits most anything you could need. I also love the rocker look =) This is the She + Lo ‘Let It Ride’ Bag.


This bag, also by She + Lo, is a bit smaller and makes for a great diaper bag, or purse, on the go! It’s casual enough to go with almost any outfit, but still high quality enough to be dressed up. It sort of reminds me of the Balenciaga City Bag, but MUCH more affordable. This is the ‘Next Chapter’ bag by She + Lo.


My Celine Phantom Luggage Tote is by far my most expensive fashion piece. It was a very generous push present from my husband after having our son Oliver. We were never able to buy each other such lavish presents early in our marriage, so this was truly a new feeling for me. I love that it can fit just about anything and everything you can imagine, but it still looks sleek and classy even when it’s full. I use it ALL THE TIME…. I call it my “business woman bag,” as I carry it to virtually every business meeting or trip I have.


This Rebecca Minkoff  Crossbody Purse, is great for occasions where I need minimum storage (wallet, phone, keys, couple of products) and for when I want to look a little more casual, but still put together.  It’s great for running around and being hands free!


When I need more storage, but also durability, this MZ Wallace Metro Tote is amazing! It can also fold down, so it’s great to pack this for extra storage on you way back from a trip! These make great gym bags, diaper bags, and travel bags!

IMG_8661When I want a tote with a little more class, but plenty of room, my Louis Vuitton Never Full Tote is my go-to! This is another one of my really valued investment pieces. This was a gift from a company I worked with many years ago! I love it for traveling, beach days, or days when I need to pack lots of different items. It truly never gets full. =)

I don’t have loads and loads of bags, but the ones I have, I love and wear regularly. They all serve a purpose in my wardrobe. What’s your favorite handbag?

    To be honest, I own one (no-name) handbag and one diaper bag. I guess I am not much of a handbag girl.

    Love them, my collection is a small one as well. I’m investing on classic pieces ( mostly Dooney & Bourke) I love the fact that no too many people would have my same bag. I think I want a small Rebecca Minkoff as the one you have as my next piece.

    Hey Rachel, I am a mama of 2 boys from MN. Just have to say I love your purse collection and have been watching you for awhile. Like you I am a sucker for a nice black leather purse! I feel like I can relate to you and just love watching your videos! Keep up the good work!!

    My handbag collection is not too large, and in fact my two most favourite pieces are from a Spanish brand called Bimba y Lola. I bought a small cross over black bag that I wear pretty much every time I go out for dinner or drinks with friends, as well as during the day sometimes. The other is a mustard colour that is beautiful. I have a few others but these two I LOVE. Yep, in capital letters and everything!
