7 Great Big Bags ...

I’ve recently written an article about my affection for tiny little handbags, but I must confess: I also adore big bags, bags that can carry all of my work stuff and school stuff and everything else I might need. Why should I be loyal to just one type of bag when there are so many things different bags can offer? Let me prove my point. Here are 7 great big bags.

1 French Press Bag

Price: $329.99 at modcloth.com
This rich mahogany-hued leather bag is gorgeous, with sumptuous details and plenty of room for all your essentials. Note the eye-catching woven insert on the front, the gorgeous color, and of course, how soft and lush the leather is to the touch. Pair this with a long maxi skirt or dress and a pair of peep-tone pumps.

2 Traveling Translator Tote

Price: $99.99 at modcloth.com
This roomy tote is a must-have for any glamorous world traveler, or just the pretty girls who will travel, someday! I adore the little envelope-inspired front pocket, and the map imagery on the exterior. The brown faux leather trim sets it all off, making this such a marvelous bag!

3 Chocolate Terrine Bag

Price: $237.99 at modcloth.com
It’s a cross-body messenger bag, it’s a backpack, it’s utterly indulgent. This lush brown leather bag is big and beautiful, too, with plenty of room for all of your weekday (or weekend) goodies, like books, make-up, music, wallet, water bottle, keys, cell phone… you name it! I love the rich chocolate brown color, the gold-tone zippers and hardware, and the pretty weave pattern on the front.

4 Safe Travels Bag

Price: $249.99 at modcloth.com
There are oh so many things to admire about this bag. The soft dove grey leather, the tassel and fringe details, the delicate topstitching, the double straps (one leather, one chain-link). I’d wear this with a long tunic in black or pale pink, dark grey leggings (with or without a pattern) and tall peep-toe heels. Stunning!

5 City-Wide Style Bag

Price: $99.99 at modcloth.com
Who says beige is boring? Not in this case, my dear! This gorgeous brown carry-all is neutral, but with added pops of color in its bright yellow top handles and patent fold-over flap and attached wristlet. Think chic, not bland!

6 Bag and Plead in Please

Price: $384.99 at modcloth.com
I believe this bag was made for me. It is the exact color of my dreams, whims, and fancies. The bag is buttery soft, slouchy suede, with an interesting loop detail at both ends of the wide shoulder strap and a pair of tassels, too. I MUST HAVE THIS BAG! Truly.

7 Love of the Land Bag

Price: $199.99 at modcloth.com
What’s even better than a gorgeous leather bag? How about a guilt-free, eco-friendly one, made with repurposed leather, all in rich chocolate brown and tan, with a detachable shoulder strap and twin top handles? Carry it with anything in your closet, from your favorite skinny jeans and oversized, slouchy tee to a maxi dress and wedges.

So many precious things to carry, so many bags to carry them! And I love them all! Which of these big bags do you like best, and what would you wear it with? Please let me know!
