My new milk carton bagI

I mentioned the bag I bought on Storenvy in a blog post recently, but I never actually showed it off, which is a bit of a shame, since I know how hard it can be to judge how similar to the images in a online store the actual bag is. So in case anyone else is interested in this bag, I thought I would show you some images of it.

I actually think it looks really similar to the images in the store that sold it, and while it is a small one, I actually use it more than I thought I would, and I am very happy with it! So I would definitely recommend getting this cutie!

Like whimsical bags?

If so, and if you don't mind a bit of bling, like rhinestones and sequins, the bags of Mary Frances might be for you. She makes a lot of really fun and cute novelty bags of all kinds, but with a significantly lower price tag than Judith Leiber bags have, for instance.

Here are some of my own favorite Mary Frances bags:

I must say I haven't decided if these are too bling-blingy for me personally, though. I am generally not too fond of bling, but I do love novelty bags, making it a bit hard to decide what I really think...

A bit of a weird Moschino bag

Normally I am a fan of Moschino and pretty much everything they make, and I also like motorcycle jackets quite a lot, but I have to say that the combination of the two doesn't really work for me, at least based on the motorcycle jacket bag Moschino recently released:
I would love this as a jacket though! But somehow it doesn't translate well at all as a bag.

I do like that the logo is small and almost not noticeable, though. But nope, I would not want this bag. So try again, Moschino!

Kim Kardashian's Christmas Present might be one of the most valuable handbags of all time

You see, she got a Hermes Birkin bag with a one of a kind art work by George Condo (whose paintings have been sold for over $1 million) from her fiancee Kanye West this Christmas.
I must say that I don't like this bag at all, though. As a woman, I would not like to have a bag with nude women on it, but art is of course always very subjective, so I hope Kim feels differently.

At least she can be sure no-one else will ever have a bag like this! And since she already has quite a few
