Summer wedding season is here and I really need a new evening bag–I only own one clutch bag right now and it is maroon. While it has carried me through winter and fall weddings, I am ready for something brighter and more fun.
This search led me down an online browsing hole where I found out that Amazon actually has an awesome purse selection. Here are the 10 purses in my cart right now:
Acrylic: Acrylic bags are a thing right now. They’re so funky, but for under $40 I might be willing to try one. This one is a spin on the wooden “ark” bags that I’ve seen floating around the internet. The colors are so outrageous I sort of just feel like I need it. And this one is a more practical evening size, plus, glitter stars are a little out of my comfort zone, and if I’m going to go wild it might as well be as a wedding guest.
Straw: There are so many straw bags out there right now but I don’t want to fork over $80 to have one. This round version is a good dupe for the one Madewell is selling (100% inspired by Natalie Borton to be browsing straw bags). Other options: clutch, half moon, woven. Too informal as a wedding guest? Or right with the season?
Statement evening bags: Some other ideas I have include this shiny clutch purse (so many colors–I’m thinking light blue? A little bit unexpected with seafoam?), or this sequin purse (inspired by this much more expensive look).
Other general nonsense: Of course, on the purse hunt I got distracted, and am now considering a circle handle tote (first image) and a belt bag. They’re both a bit trendy but for under $20 I’m willing to give them a try (will you judge me if I have a belt bag though?!).
What would you pick with my chosen dress (below)? Any other styles of bags you’ve been considering lately?
