Fall 2008 Designer Handbag Report
Every time Fall comes around every Bagista thinks of what bag will be her “IT” bag for the season. Mostly all handbag lovers think of sporting around that gorgeous dark handbag that they absolutely adore. Some bagista’s might bring out some of their old stash that they only bring out at the end of the year and some might crave that new fall handbag they have seen all over the magazines and online.
I have never been one into trends in fact I hate trends. Having to wear specific colors in every season always seemed odd to me, especially when you live in a state (like me) where the climate is pretty much scorching hot all year round. For people that actually live in season changing climates trends are very popular. One of those trends are to go with dark colors in the fall. Every major designer brand always comes out with fabulous Fall handbags. My favorite colors for this years Fall 2008 handbags would black (as usual) and PURPLE! Purple is literally everywhere! It is claimed to be the Fall handbag color of the 2008 season. It seems like every designer brand out there is coming out with a purple handbag this fall. Some brands that have LOVELY purple handbags this fall are Chanel, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, and Mulberry to name a few.
Purple isn’t the only color to wear for Fall, there are also more traditional colors like brown, black, gray and pretty much anything that screams DARK. If it’s dark, dim, and dusky it’s a must for FALL!
For myself, I always look for big handbags, and the Fall is no exception. I love big handbags, especially in patent leather. Living in Florida, I don’t feel the need to follow trends, it’s 100 degrees all year round. But if I’m in NY, I must have that big, dark handbag, especially as I mentioned above, in Patent Leather. I absolutely love patent leather, it’s easy to care, stylish and sexy! I’m always on the lookout for a new hot patent leather handbag that comes out every Fall.
I have many favorite handbags for this Fall. My ultimate favorite is the Louis Vuitton Embrossed Speedy in Black but of course it comes with a hefty price tag of $2,700. If you have the mula, this is a definite MUST for Fall 2008.

Another favorite of mine is the Purple Dr. Q Groove by Marc by Marc Jacobs. I’m really loving all the purple this Fall and this bag is just decadent in my opinion.

Rebecca Minkoff is a recent love of mine. I’m absolutely addicted to looking at her Morning After Mini. The style of this bag is absolutely amazing. It’s very practical and just all around beautiful. This bag and brown looks yummy!
