Save vs. Splurge: Bucket Bags

Satchels and totes are always nice, but this season I have my eye on a black bucket bag to carry with me as my go-to handbag. The past couple of years the bucket bag of choice has been Alexander Wang's Diego bag, but I decided to focus on some newer, lighter weight options. And on a side note, yes, I do know that the $3400 "Platinum" option from The Row is completely ridiculous...

Platinum: The Row $3,400 Gold: See by Chloe $560 Silver: Joie $388  Bronze: Asos $59

I'm going to be perfectly honest and let y'all know that this time I am playing favorites. That See by Chloe bag is perfection! Supple black leather, luxe gold details, not too big and not too small...I would love for it to find a home in my closet. Buuuuuuut, let's be real - it's much more likely that great textured Asos number will be on my arm in the coming weeks.  What do you think, would you go for the Gold or the Silver or Bronze option?

  3. I want a bucket bag for fall so badly!! Actually, I wouldn't mind having one right this instant. While I love the Row's bag, I can't justify spending that kind of money. I love the "silver" one though!!! Great options! xoxoox
