7.5" Bags

As 7.5" shoulder bags are really popular this fall/winter, Bagopedia is thinking of getting one. It is totally against what I am used to- a 40 CM Birkin carrying all. I do really like an idea of not taking my 40 CM to the dinner parties after work. 

I like to have a smaller bag for lunch. I think a long wallet or a clutch will do it without spending more money. It is not so easy for the dinner which requires more a evening bag.

There are a few 7.5" shoulder bags that I like:

This 7.5" Versus reminds me of Elizabeth Hurley's Versace pin dress in 1994. It became one of the most famous dress even Lady Gaga worn it in 2012. 

The bag is retailed for $650.00 CAD. I think it is reasonable as a totally leather bag.

I also like this Kenzo as Kenzo is really hot lately. Since it launched the Tiger collection since last year, the Tiger prints become really hot. 

This Kenzo bag is retailed for $670.00 CAD. Also not a bad price tag.

The last one is the Proenza Schouler PS 11 Iridescent shoulder bag. As Bagopedia said last time, the Beetle or Iridescent bags are the must this season. This bag also can't go wrong with anything.

The price tag is higher as PS series is a higher end line. It is $2,175.00.

All bags you can find at where is why I stay at home shopping lately.

Bags For This Fall/Winter

Yes, another 3 months have passed from my last entry. Bagopedia is surprised that people still visit this blog.

Today I will share some of my recent purchases and thoughts about the bags this fall/winter:
LANVIN $590.00, Net-A-Porter

I saw this LANVIN pouch this morning on NAP and I purchased it immediately. I love the beetles! You can't really describe the colors. The beetle colors are big this fall/winter. Tory Burch is all over it. This season many big brand have something in beetle colors. 

Bottega Veneta did the beetle collection for fall 2010. I loved the tote but it was so limited. I didn't get one.

BVLGARI Serpenti Bag, $1,950-$2,650, BVLGARI Stores

I bought this BVLGARI bag. It is elegant and classic. I was offered one in green so I took it. The bag is still now on pre-ordred stage. I love this green. The bag looks like a large emerald. It is really beautiful! I also chose the biggest bag because I don't want to spend so much money for a bag that can only be carried in the evenings. Even the largest bag is only 30 CM.

GUCCI Bamboo Shopper, $1,890-$2,290,

The third bag I have purchased this season is this GUCCI shopper. I liked the black but I chose this red instead. I don't have any bags in red and this is a red I really like. I love the bamboo details. The tote has a lot of compartments and pockets inside. It is a well-organized tote.

Bagopedia hopes that this entry can help for choosing a fall winter bag. Happy shopping!
