Is your Instagram being taken over by bucket bags? Because mine is (if you’re not following me on Instagram, you’re missing out on a lot… just saying…). Every fashionista seems to have a bag of her own.
Bucket bags are the “it” bags this season. Remember how just a few months ago everyone was carrying a Chloe Drew bag? Well now everyone is carrying a bucket bag. I’m not one to follow fashion blindly, I only get what I like, and I like bucket bags!
I’m a big fan of the Longchamp brand, I own 3 of their bags as of now. Their minimalistic designs and sturdy leather are what I’m looking for in a bag. Even though it ain’t cheap, it’s relatively affordable compared to even higher end brands such as Chloe, Givenchy etc… For a couple hundred dollars, you get a high end quality bag that will last you a while.
Back to our subject, the actual bucket bag… Even though it does look like a bucket (and who wants a bucket on their arm?) it’s actually beautifully designed. It’s definitely an everyday kind of bag. The inside is in fact bigger than it appears to be. You can
shove store a decent amount of your things considering it’s size. I went for a brown one because I have way too many black handbags and brown works pretty much with everything…
Did your mother ever have a pair of mules you always wanted to have but her feet are more feminine and much smaller than yours? No? Just me?… Well my mom did, and no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t squeeze into them. Thankfully, mules are back in style and I finally own a pair of my own (even though there not as beautiful as the pair my mom had, honestly).
They might look uncomfortable, but the thick heels actually makes them very comfy to wear (just don’t go running a marathon in them). They’re chic yet easy to wear. No strap, no nothing, just slide your feet and off you go!
Bucket bags & mules are having a major come back this spring, go raid your momma’s closet because vintage is always in style.
What you think of bucket bags? do you like them? And how about mules? Let me know!
