Baggin' Out: Oasis Suedette Crossbody

Up in my (northern) neck of the woods, there is a chill in the air and it's got me thinking Fall! Fall is my absolute favorite fashion season; cozy sweaters, brand new denim and, of course, fall handbags! The Oasis Suedette Crossbody from ASOS perfectly defines Fall handbag and totally deserves a feature in this column.

Baggin' Out: ASOS Leather Tassel Frame Bag

I usually have a backstory for why I chose to feature a certain bag, but this week I don't. This purse is just gorgeous, vintage-inspired and great quality! Meet the Leather Tassel Frame Bag by ASOS.

Baggin' Out: Nine West Turn the Corner

As summer is approaching its end, I've been finding myself going for drinks quite a bit. Drinks to say farewell to hometown friends, drinks to welcome back friends from vacation, drinks because it's hot out, etc. I have two crossbody bags that I like to bring to these affairs, but realized that I probably need a few more.

Baggin' Out: Fossil Modern Cargo Convertible Tote

I'm going on 2 weekend trips this month, and have realized how non-functional my purse collection actually is. Most of the better-designed ones are also made of super light leathers or too big to bring for a full day of shopping and sight-seeing. I was on the hunt for a well-made, functional and cute purse that could serve me well in my travels. And I think I found it!

Baggin' Out: H&M Satchel

Even though I live about 6 hours away from the nearest location, I always try to hit up H&M for a big back to school splurge before September. Even though I only own one purse from them (shocking!) I took a careful look through their accessory section and came up with this little gem!

Baggin' Out: Gap Metallic Chain Strap Bag

Gap is a classic American brand, known more for their blue jeans than their impeccable style and accessories. However, the Metallic Chain Strap Bag has caught my eye and may be just what the doctor ordered!

Baggin' Out: Volcom According to You Bag

Not only do I currently work in an office (okay, it's an Athletic's office, but still!), but I'm also working in a few psychology labs this year for course credit. That means potentially dealing with participants and clients, so I need to dress business-casual at all times. I have a few bigger, business-y bags, but not many. So I set out for a business-casual purse that I could bring to a lab and stuff silly with all my textbooks. Behold, the Volcom According to You bag!

Baggin' Out: The Extras' Rachel Bag

I'm realizing that my heavy, leather purses aren't quite as suited to the summer weather as I previously thought, and I've been on the search for a summery, mid-size purse that I can take from day to night. And I think I've found a great option in the Rachel Bag from The Extras.

Baggin' Out: Aldo Machon

Since I paid my last MasterCard bill, I've decided that I need to buckle down and budget shop with a little more effort. I love my high-end purses, but surprisingly, many middle-end stores churn out wonderful bags at a fraction of the designer cost. One shop that I can always count on to keep on top of trends at an affordable price is Aldo.

Baggin' Out: Lauren Moshi Heart Dreamcatcher Tote

My backpacks are too big to lug around as a bag, but my purses aren't big enough, so I'm stuck using old totes I received at conferences and the like. Trust me, nothing kills a super cute outfit like a re-usable campus bookstore tote that's bright blue. So, I set out to find a cute tote that would still be appropriate for all these activities. And I think I found one in Lauren Moshi!

Baggin' Out: Melie Bianco Ethnic Applique Hobo

It's almost more difficult to find purses that are a good bang for your buck when you're shopping bargain rather than high-end. Thank goodness for brands like Melie Bianco, who realize that not everyone can drop hundreds of dollars on a purse, but everyone deserves good style and quality!

Baggin' Out: Marc by Marc Jacobs Little Ukita

Last time I did a purse inventory (it has to be done when you've got a collection like mine), I realized something: all of my purses are super-sized. You won't find any mini's hanging around in my closet! I'm 5'8, so I can rock larger purses and since I'm a student, I'm always looking for purses that fit at least a textbook and a notebook. However, this can be a problem when I'm looking for a lighter purse for a day of shopping or a night of margaritas at the local club.

Baggin' Out: Cleobella Mexicana Clutch

I took a look at my measly clutch collection the other day (I'm such an ashamed handblog blogger) and realized that everything I owned was more suited to winter. Basic black and brown leather, but nothing fun or "warm".
