Not only do I have a love (addiction, ha ha) for makeup but I also have it for bags as well.
I have been carrying a purse since I was like 5 or 6 years old. I remember the one I carried was white, with tan trim, with a long strap (it was the 90's). I would carry it on my shoulder or cross body. Why would a 6 year old carry a purse or what would she even need to carry around with her? Well stickers, you never know when you'll need those! An orange in case she gets hungry. Paper and pens to doodle, a jump rope, and lipstick of course!
Yes I would carry this around all the time and I thought I was so cool! :D
So naturally my love for handbags has carried on just like my love for makeup.
I bought my first Coach bag last summer and I loved it. I have a few other I guess what you would call name brand bags. I have a few Betsey Johnson bags, a Juicy Couture bag, and a couple other leather bags. I also have quite a few Kathy Van Zeeland bags, which are moderately priced cute bags. I'm hoping to get a LV bag sometime this year!
BUT I can't buy pricey bags all the time, so I look to TJ Maxx and Marshall's to find good deals on some nicer quality bags.
I love what a nice bag can do for a simple outfit! Bags are great ways to turn a simple look into something more because the bag is part of the outfit and can become the focus of your look.
I was in Marshall's about two weeks ago. I actually wasn't looking to buy a bag I was just in there while my husband was at the bank next door. So I'm browsing around the bags, then this sequined bag stopped me in my tracks! The sequins were catching all the light and it looked so pretty! I love anything that sparkles, has glitter, shimmer or sequins! I am just drawn to stuff that sparkles! So I of course had to have this bag! I must have been a drag queen in another life! :D
The round thing is just the price tag.
How cute is the lining!?! :-)
The bag is from a brand called nicole lee U.S.A., which I had never heard of. On the hang tag there was a website listed so when I came home I quickly checked it out. They have some super cute bags! They have really great designs. They have SO many designs and styles to choose from that there's a bag for any ones taste.
They get a lot inspiration from designers collections and travel overseas to find new designs and trends. They have new bags every season.
They mix different textures, add embellishments, sequins, and studs!
They are moderately priced from $32 to $92. Which I don't think is bad. We all want great designs but we all can't spend $400 on a bag so I think these are great!
I have been using my bag every day since I got it and I really love it. It's really easy to get my things in and out of it. I hate when some bags don't have a nice opening and pulling your stuff out is a problem!
It's comfortable and I have gotten many compliments on it. I'm going to love using it in the Spring as well.
These are some of the bags I am LOVING on the site
My favorite are the first 3, love them, need to have them!
Online they ship to the USA and Canada but they will ship worldwide if you order through a sales representative http://nicolehandbag.net/2009_FW/contact/.
You can order online here http://www.nicoleleeonline.com/home.php?cat=1
I emailed them to ask them a few questions if they ship worldwide and whatnot. Well I had a reply back right away plus they have some of the nicest customer service I have come across. I am BIG on customer service! There is a company who gave me terrible customer service so I never ordered from them again!
Overall I am very happy with my bag and hope to get some more.
Definitley check them out if your looking for a new bag.
