Hello. My name is Lauren and I am addicted to purses. I do not discriminate - I love small ones, big ones, leather, cloth, top handles, cross body, clutches and all colors. While I have been known to buy on impulse I like to shop around and pick the one I like best for what I am going for. My latest hunt: "black leather top handle classic everyday." I have a BCBG doctors bag in black but the quality isnt as nice as I would like. I want this bag to last for a really long time. I have narrowed it down to 3 finalists:

Up first - MARC BY MARC JACOBS 'Classic Q - Little Ukita' Convertible Crossbody Flap Bag
The leather looks super soft and I like the option of the top handle or the longer strap. It's the perfect size but I was a bit hesitant for the big MJ emblem on the front flap.

On to contestant numero dos - Kate Spade Five Points Camille

I have been wanting a Kate Spade for a while. All the reviews I have read they are impeccably made and they last forever. Plus, the small Kate Spade emblem is much more my size and style.

Last but not least - Kate Spade Cobble Hill Leslie

This bag is pretty big and I love the way it looks. Only drawback is the top - I'm not sure how much I like how it zips and fold over. If I needed to get something out of it quickly I'm not sure I could.

I want them all!!! But of course that isn't reasonable...which one would you pick?


  1. I like the first one the best and the second one! The third one I agree it might be too hard to get in when you are in a hurry.

  2. I love Kate Spade bags, they truly are something wonderful. But for what you are wanting I would go with the Marc Jacobs bag. It just has the classic look that will stand the test of time. It's not a bag that will go out of fashion.

  3. I like one and three :)

  4. I totally would go with #1

  5. Not gonna lie... I love the last Kate Spade one. No matter how tricky it looks. It's awesome.
