Oh, How Pinteresting | Power Clutch

You fellow Essie fanatics probably understand the meaning of my title – Power Clutch. I was wearing that color last week and L-O-V-E it! However, today’s post is not about nail polish. It’s about one of my other favorite things…

HANDBAGS!

I’ve mentioned before that I’m a total accessory girl. I can pass up any new pair of jeans or silky blouses, but, when it comes to jewelry, shoes, and handbags… I’m a sucker. Okay, so maybe I’m not that bad because I’m super cautious with my money and practice self-control when shopping but, you get the picture! I’m linking up with The Vintage Apple to show you some of my favorite Pinterest finds from the week :) Let me warn you that some of these handbags are no longer in stock in case you go to look for them. Total bummer, right?

I have been loving satchels and cross-body bags!

Clutches are fun too {although they can sometimes be annoying to carry} I actually love that clutches are getting bigger and bigger in size because, let’s be honest… I can only downsize so much - Camera, wallet, lip gloss, etc.

Then, of course, I’ve always loved the chain-strap Chanel-esque purses

I’m also starting to love fold-over bags!

Lastly, and probably my very favorite type of handbag are what I like to call the “Doctor’s” bags. You know, they’re very similar to the old school bag doctor’s used to carry. I have one by Jessica Simpson {similar to the first one below} that is one of my most treasured handbags

This grey bag below is by one of my favorite handbag designers, Melie Bianco. I have rocked her hobo purses for years. It’s hilarious to look back and see how many pictures I’ve taken wearing those hobos!

Mmm, I’m going to be dreaming of these handbags! But, hey… maybe one of these will find its way on my Christmas/birthday list? We shall see!

Are you an accessory lover like me?

I’m also linking up with Jamie for What I’m Loving Wednesday. It’s so awesome to reflect on the things that you love mid-week!

I’m loving that I get to go out of town for the next TWO weekends!! Not that I don’t like DC {because I DO} but, going away to see friends is always fun!

I’m loving classic movies and can’t wait to watch more. Rear Window is a must-see!

I’m loving an Oprah Workshop that I’m taking online. Perhaps more on that once I’m finished but, I can already tell it’s going to be beneficial :)

I’m loving that the leaves are changing color here!

I’m loving that when I go to see my college, it’s going to look so different from the last time I was on campus thanks to beautiful {even newer} buildings being built! Yay CNU!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday! What are you loving today? :)

I love that first clutch! I'm glad they're getting bigger too. I can never fit all of my stuff in the ones I have. I always have to tell my fiance to put this and that in his pocket because it won't fit haha

Oh goodness, yes bags!!! I am LOVING crossbody bags and vintagey looking leather handbags-one of the reasons I have to close my eyes every time I walk by the Fossil store at the mall. I just salivated all over those beauties... That's a little disgusting but I'm ok with that. Im seriously wanting a new purse now and it's all your fault! :P
