Bucket bag

I’ve had a bucket bag on my wish list the last few seasons. I’m not sure who or what inspired me, but I suddenly felt like it was one of those items, while not a necessity, would be a great addition to my small handbag collection. My top pick, of course, is the 3.1 Phillip Lim Diego Bucket bag with its thick, luscious leather with studs to boot. The hardware gives what may at times lend itself to a bohemian-style bag, some edge. However, at $895, it likely isn’t within my reach in the near future. Plus, I’ve heard many things about how heavy it is due to the leather and the hardware. I generally don’t do well with heavy cross-body bags, so this fact made me wary.

After searching high and low, I think I’ve found a great alternative, the Madewell Lafayette Bucket Bag, for a much more reasonable price of $198. It is has yet to come into my possession, but as soon as it does, you will definitely hear about it. 😉

Here are some other options I had my eye on:

    Madewell is spot on this fall! I like the animal print bag from Elizabeth and James. Did you see @ nordstrom semi annual sale featured coach bucket bag – it was beautiful in olive leather! I prefer a bag with a little more structure though. Livingthedreamnc.blogspot.com

    You know what? I’m usually drawn to bags with structure as well, but for some reason, I felt like I really needed a bucket bag!
