While everything on the site has been rose hued, I’ve been dreaming of a new PINK bag.  A pop of PINK goes with any spring outfit, right?

Below is a curated list of my favorites for you to explore.  Several are high end, luxury brands that are always fun to look at, and a couple of very affordable options. Hint…the Ted Baker is on sale right now for $78.00!!

When shopping for a colored bag, you want to notice a few things.  Always check the color saturation; color transfer can ruin car seats and favorite outfits.  You also want to make sure your new bag is made of leather. Leather looks better with age, the more you wear it the softer it becomes.  Of course there are many grades of leather and that is reflected in the price.

 I love large bags that hold a ton but the newest shape is a sleek shoulder bag. I’m really excited to share this assortment with you starting with the most luxurious.

Valentino Garavani Quilted Heart Bag

Everything about this bag makes me happy, especially the red heart. Notice the rock stud detail that has become the calling card for Valentino.  The leather handle makes it easy to carry as a handbag or pop out the chain strap and you have a shoulder style.  This is definitely a statement piece!

Gucci GG Marmont Matelasse Mini

This pretty bag features chevron quilting and the iconic GG Gucci is known for.  The shoulder strap is a heavy weight brass to keep this bag firmly on your shoulder. This is the mini, Gucci offers this style in several sizes.

Botkier Cobble Hill

This powder PINK Botkier is an affordable classic that will serve you for many years.  It is all leather and features a front pouch perfect for keys and cell phones.  Don’t like the black fabric shoulder strap?  The Cobble Hill bag is available with a chain shoulder strap as well.

Ted Baker London Barkley

This precious Ted Baker bag is packed with personality and lots of details.  I like the on-trend rose gold hardware that is detachable so you could carry it as a clutch if you like.  This bag retailed for $195.00 and is now on sale for $78.00!


I could not resist bringing this PINK leather tote to you.  Having a bag shaped like this is ideal for ladies on the go; just toss in everything you need and you’re out the door.  Totes are so practical for travel and meetings, this one will accommodate an iPad and small laptop.  If pink is not your thing, there are a variety of spring shades to choose from.

After all of this I can’t decide!  Which one is YOUR favorite? Let me know and for now I’ll keep dreaming!
