Chic Shopaholic: Bags, bags and more bags

Can't believe 6 months have passed already, how time flies! Somehow I was able to buy 6 bags during that  time. That's 1 bag per months - oops! Anyhow, thought I'd share the bags I've bought, all of them with different styles for different occasions.

The first bag is a Mini Barrel Satchel by Steve Madden. I found it at Ross and they actually had quite a few of these in different colors and prints. This one is black with gold polka-dots and a tiny heart mirror hanging outside. It's a chic and goes with everything kind of bag and the perfect size for me, yet at the same time I can fit a few things in it.

I love my red lip bag that I bought at ALDO and when they had a hot pink one, I had to have it. I love anything with kiss prints on it and the fact that it's a bag shaped like it, it's the perfect statement accessory. This can be worn with a simple, neutral color outfit to make the bag more wearable or you could go for a color blocking theme and wear it with other bright colors. The detachable chain shoulder/crossbody bag can also be carried as a wristlet with the strap or just as a clutch.

I also bought the next 3 bags at ALDO on a different shopping trip, two of them which were on sale.

A metallic gold clutch with ruching detail and a gold ring to slip your wrist through or be held by your hands. It can fit a few essentials for a night out to a nice dinner or a party.

This white clutch has a wide wristlet attached with gold studded accents that make it almost look like a bracelet. It's a great Summer bag and just adds a cool accessory to an outfit.

Finally, a black envelope style clutch, also with a gold metal wristlet attached. It has a rocker feel to it but it's still sophisticated for a night out. 

The last bag I bought was also by Steve Madden, it is the Arris Mini Convertible Satchel. It was on sale at Nordstrom and the color instantly caught my eye, a bright red-coral with black detail. It has a long chain strap that can be worn over the shoulder or across the body and two handles. I actually cut the chains off since they're too long for me and just used the handles. I've gotten a lot of compliments carrying it around and it's just a great everyday bag.

So those are my new bags! I love all of them because they're proper bags unlike the small wristlets that I've been using for some time. What is your favorite everyday bag and evening bag to carry?
