Daily Covet: Chloé vs. Marc Jacobs Crossbody Bag

I have been wanting the perfect crossbody bag for a long time.

I don’t need a small bag often, but sometimes my outfit just calls for something somewhat casual, but still polished enough to wear for a night out.

This Chloé Marcie crossbody bag has been on my want list for a long, long time. Sadly, at this price point, it’ll probably stay there much longer.

This great Marc Jacobs bag, however, is far more reasonable. I love the detailing on the closure and while, I don’t love it in black, I do adore it in this bright blue color. And since I wear so much black and navy anyway, it’d be great to have a pop!

Daily Covet: Issey Miyake Prism Rainbow Tote

Friends and fashionistas, my apologies for the spotty posting over the last year.

A third baby and a new post at a boutique public relations firm has kept me from doing what I really love to do most often, which is BUY STUFF, of course.

But I had to make time for this amazing Issey Miyake Prism Rainbow Tote. I am truly in love with all things “totable” as my young family is constantly on the go.

From business trips to playdates, I am always on the hunt for fabulous totes that make me look like I put some effort (even if I didn’t) into what I am wearing… and toting.  This makes my skinny white jeans, t-shirts and Chuck Cons super chic in an instant!

Daily Covet: Gucci Patent Shoulder Bag

Yes.  Another handbag.

I hope you took me seriously when I said that this blog was going to be heavy on the shoes and handbags for a while. They are a pregnant girl’s best friends after all.

It’s so nice when you’re as big as a house and it all still fits.

Today, it’s this Gucci Patent Shoulder Bag with a top handle.  If you’ve been reading this blog for some time, you may have gathered that I have a “thing” for patent leather.  And this structured bag is no exception.

This little Gucci bag-that-could isn’t too big, and isn’t too small.  It gives me a little bit of a Breakfast-at-Tiffany’s-pillbox-hat feeling, but is still a totally modern bag with it’s slight hobo-style silhouette.  And you can hike it up on your shoulder while on a spree for more shoes and accessories than one could ever wear during a single pregnancy!

Daily Covet: Burberry Berkeley Crossbody Bag

A crossbody bag, the perfect accessory for spring.

While I love big handbags, I’m really not one for filling them up.

That’s why this Burberry Berkeley Crossbody Bag is perfect for a girl like me.  If I were to be honest, I regularly carry my wallet, lip gloss and my phone.  While I may have other stuff in my bag, it’s not stuff I use often.

I can totally see this bag being the perfect size for a concert, the Summer Arts Fair, date night or dinner with my girlfriends.

Pair it with an eyelet sundress or white jeans and a flowy top, and it’s the perfect carry-most!

Daily Covet: Metallic Mini Clutch by Eric Javits

The perfect gold clutch.

I’ve been looking for the perfect gold clutch for several years.  I have these fantastic gold strappy sandals that I want to wear with pretty much everything all summer long.

This gold mini clutch from Eric Javits is the right size, the right classic shape, and I adore the little tassel.  Also, the signature flower closure matches the leather cut-out blooms on my sandals.

I guess at $300+ for this evening bag, I really would have to wear those shoes with EVERYTHING, ALL SUMMER LONG!

Daily Covet: Marc Jacobs Crossbody Bag

Handbags.

You never have to worry if they’ll fit.  They add detail and character to every outfit.  They can change a totally dressy outfit to cute casualwear and back again.

This MARC by Marc Jacobs Preppy Nylon Sasha Crossbody Bag is just one of those bags that brings down the “dress up” factor.  What a great way to tote around all your belongings.

Whether you are museum hopping through Europe or catching the train to work, this adorable bag in two WOW! colors will catch eyes.
