My Updated Designer Handbag Wishlist

I’ve recently been having a bit of a clear out ready for Christmas (I know, I know, I’ve just used the C-word in September. I’m such a rebel). And during my clear out my handbag collection has most definitely been reduced. So with all the pennies I’ve earned from selling my unwanted goods on eBay, I thought I’d treat myself to a nice new designer one. The only problem is, there’s so many that I want. Aargh!

With that in mind, I thought I’d shared my updated designer handbag wishlist with you guys today. And I’m hoping that you can maybe help me choose which one to get next. So, are you sitting comfortably? Then let me show you my favourites from ones I’ve currently got my eye on …Balenciaga Metallic Edge City BagBalenciaga Metallic Edge City Bag – £1,560

First up is a bag that I’ve been lusting after for what feels like forever – the Balenciaga Metallic Edge City Bag in a beautiful blush hue. These bags come in a range of different sizes, but I think the smallest one would be ideal for someone like me as I try not to carry too much round with me these days.

The bag is made from textured leather, has a two-way zip fastening along the top, and comes with Balenciaga’s iconic hardware in a gorgeous silver colour. I think my favourite part about it though just has to be the whipstitched top handles – they’re so pretty! And the pale blush colour will compliment virtually any outfit. I just love it.Jimmy Choo Lockett Petite Shoulder BagJimmy Choo Lockett Petite Leather Shoulder Bag – £895

Another bag I’ve had my eye on for ages (and have talked about several times here on my blog) is the Jimmy Choo Lockett Petite Leather Shoulder Bag. I think this particular bag would look fab paired with a little black dress and killer heels on a night out, and it’s available in loads of different colour combinations.

My personal favourite colour combination is the smooth black leather with chrome hardware. Isn’t it gorgeous? I think it makes for a lovely feminine choice that could be worn either across the body or over the shoulder. And the unique push-lock feature would ensure that all your important belongings were kept safe and sound. If I could only choose one designer handbag for the rest of my life, it would definitely be this!Chloé Faye Medium Leather and Suede Shoulder BagChloé Faye Medium Leather and Suede Shoulder Bag – £1,280

If you guys read my previous designer handbag wishlist post you’ll know that I have a bit of a penchant for Chloé bags. So, of course, I had to include one on this list. And the one I’d really like to add to my ever-growing collection is the beautiful Chloé Faye leather and suede shoulder bag in a beautiful pale grey shade.

The stunning shoulder bag is part of Chloé’s coveted ‘Faye’ family and is expertly made from a tactile mix of suede and leather. The super slim bag opens to show an accordion-style interior fitted with a zipped pocket to keep all of your essentials organised. And the polished gold equestrian-inspired ring and chain gives it the most beautiful finishing touch. It’s the bag of dreams for any Chloé fan.Kate Spade New York Small Sam Satchel Bag in Primrose

Kate Spade New York Small Sam Primrose Satchel Bag – £193

Mustard shades are staying in fashion this autumn, so I’d love to treat myself to a bag that would be sure to add a pop of colour to any outfit. And I feel this small satchel bag from Kate Spade would be just perfect! It’s by far the cheapest bag on my current designer handbag wishlist but it’s just as pretty as the others. 

The ‘Sam’ is super spacious and features two open sections with two slip pockets and a single zip pocket. Plus, there’s a central zipped section for added security. The versatile bag is finished with twin grab handles and a removable, adjustable shoulder strap. There are metal feet to the base keep the bag protected when placed down. It also includes a luggage charm and has the signature Kate Spade branding to the front. What’s not to love?!Valentino Garavani Rockstud Textured Leather Shoulder BagValentino Garavani Rockstud Textured Leather Shoulder Bag – £830

I feel like I’ve said this about every single bag on my wishlist, but next up we have the Valentino Garavani Rockstud Textured Leather Shoulder Bag, which I’ve been wanting to add to my collection for ages! I absolutely adore textured leather at the moment, and I think Valentino’s signature pyramid ‘Rockstuds’ (which are galvanized to retain their shine), look amazing sat on top of it!

I have a lot of friends who own this bag, and they all agree that it’s one of the best investment pieces they have in their collections. This is because this particular style of handbag never really goes out of fashion, as well as being the perfect size to take you from day to night. It’s also really versatile as it can be worn cross-body, over the shoulder, or as a clutch if you tuck in the strap. Another gorgeous piece that I’d love to get my hands on.

Michael Kors Voyager Tote Bag

Michael Kors Voyager Medium Tote Bag – £295

And last, but certainly not least, I’ve picked out the gorgeous Voyager Tote Bag from Michael Kors. I’ve not picked up a tote bag for ages, so this one really caught my eye when I spotted it whilst out shopping a couple of weeks ago. The bag is crafted from textured leather with a structured silhouette, and I think the soft acorn colour is perfect for the upcoming autumn months.

The ‘Voyager’ bag features a top zip fastening that opens to reveal a lined interior with lots of lovely storage space: nine slip pockets, one zip pocket and a central zipped compartment. It comes complete with adjustable side tie detail and two adjustable grab handles. As you’d imagine, it features Michael Kors branding on the front and has protective metal feet to the base. I also like that it’s one of the more affordable designer handbags on my wishlist. I may actually be able to justify buying this one!

And there you have it – my updated designer handbag wishlist. I have to be honest and say it’s highly unlikely I’ll ever be able to afford to treat myself to any of these bags. But a girl can dream, right? Don’t forget to let me know which one I should get if I suddenly get rich. I’m rubbish at making decisions for myself!

    Wow… I love all the bags in your list… I’m a big fan of Balenciaga and the Balenciaga Metallic Edge City is so my cup of tea. But the price is whoppingly high for my budget, so I might need to settle with Michael Kors Voyager Medium…

      I know exactly how you feel! I’m desperate to get my hands on the Balenciaga Metallic Edge City Bag, but I think it would take me around 50 years to save up for it! 🙂

    These are some gorgeous handbags. I am just getting out of the stage of always carrying a diaper bag, so I definitely need a new purse. I really like that Jimmy Choo.

  3. 04/09/2018 / 12:53 pm

    So many gorgeous designer handbags! I’ve wanted a Balenciaga and a Chloe for what seems like forever – your choices are beautiful! Maybe one day!

      Thank you, Rebecca 🙂 I’m determined to get my hands on a new designer bag one day. I have an Ilex London Bag that I use all the time, but it’s not in a very autumn/wintery colour.

    I love all of these handbags. That yellow kate spade bag would have been perfect for the summer season!

  5. 04/09/2018 / 4:23 pm

    I would love to have the yellow Kate Spade bag. It looks so youthful and fresh. 🙂 I also like the Balenciaga. Chunky and practical.

  6. 04/09/2018 / 4:53 pm

    The handbags are lovely and I loved your wish list. To be honest I am a big fan of Balenciaga. Love it…

  7. 04/09/2018 / 5:20 pm

    I like the first bad and the last one. I would definitely wear that Michael Kors bag. And I think that it has quite a good price, compared with all the other ones. I love its color!

  8. 04/09/2018 / 7:07 pm

    I love the Kate Spade bag. The size and color are perfect for my outfits.

  9. 04/09/2018 / 7:14 pm

    These are all such lovely bags. If I win the lottery, I’d get a designer one. For now, I’ll stick to purses I find at Target on clearance. If it’s under $50, I’m happy!

  10. 04/09/2018 / 7:33 pm

    I think my favourite is the Kate Spade satchel bag but I would need a new coat and shoes as well..

  11. 04/09/2018 / 9:19 pm

    These are all so nice. I need a new handbag badly! I love the ones that have a built-in wallet in an outside zipper. They’re hard to find, though.

  12. 04/09/2018 / 9:59 pm

    Love this! At the moment I am after a backpack – maybe a MCM one but a white and black one. I love a designer handbag. I was lucky enough to go to the jimmy chop sample sale- bags were an 1/8 of the price. Bicester Village is good too

  13. 05/09/2018 / 3:23 am

    My wife would love these bags, especially the MK one. I have to share this with her.

  14. 05/09/2018 / 6:25 am

    I love the valentino bag, it’s so pretty. But the bags I tend to go for are the shape and style of the Michael Kors bag but I tend to go for Kate Spade x

  15. 05/09/2018 / 7:58 am

    It’s amazing how as soon as I see any post like this, I feel like shooping and gifting one to my mum but then I see my bank balance and drop the idea

  16. 05/09/2018 / 10:35 am

    Love these choices, that Kate Spade bag is beautiful, definitely my top pick, especially in that lovely yellow colour.

    I’d love a Dior bag. Earlier this year I bought a Louis Vuitton Speedy

  18. 05/09/2018 / 2:08 pm

    I’m not a handbag person I used to be but then I had kids and baby bags seemed to replace the lovely bags I had. I think I would go for the Jimmy Choo shoulder bag though its gorgeous although way out of my price range haha fingers crossed santa brings us both one.

  19. 05/09/2018 / 2:22 pm

    The Chloe is my favorite one. I just can’t get myself to like MK bags, they always look odd on me.

  20. 05/09/2018 / 5:21 pm

    All of the bags are oh so beautiful. I would call it my Dream List. Most of the bags are way out of my price stratosphere. Thankfully Kate Spade has some wonderful outlets around here with GREAT deals. I LOVE the color of the Kate Spade bag is speaking to me (in bright, yellow tones!)

  21. 05/09/2018 / 6:23 pm

    My daughter has a similar Micheal Kors one but I love the Jimmy Choo bag

  22. 05/09/2018 / 7:09 pm

    It’s sounds like it’s a good thing you did a clear out. There are lots of lovely ones here.

  23. 05/09/2018 / 8:09 pm

    Oooh, I love the Chloe and the Kate Spade. So many gorgeous handbags in this post, now I have a wishlist going!

  24. 05/09/2018 / 9:12 pm

    One of my sisters has that Michael Kors bag and its fab. My ultimate bag would have to be a Mulberry one. But I think it’ll be a few years before I own one!

  25. 05/09/2018 / 11:18 pm

    I don’t use handbags very often, but these are legit! I would not mind rocking the yellow one!

  26. 06/09/2018 / 1:27 am

    I’m not into bags, really, tbh, especially designer bags. I’d be happier if I don’t get to carry a bag and have my hands free lol But I have to say I think Michael Kors tote bag is pretty 😀

    I like the Chloe Suede. I am overdue for a nice bag. I haven’t purchased one in years.

  28. 06/09/2018 / 9:03 pm

    I love handbags! Designer or not, handbags are such an important accessory for me! I love every bag of your wish list, it is a difficult choice! I’d go with the Tote bag any day, because with two young children and a job I’m always carrying a million things. However, if you don’t carry many things, I’d get the Balenciaga one. I know both Jimmy Choo and Kate Spade’s look so elegant and cool, but a black bag, could be any bag (that’s my moto because I love coloured bags, lol). The Balenciaga one has caught my eye exactly because is the most original!

    That Chloe bag is the thing of dreams! I’d love one. My wishlist consists of a Gucci Disco and everything from the Mulberry website!

    Those are gorgeous and practical bags you’ve got in the list. You have an awesome good taste!

  31. 08/09/2018 / 11:20 am

    Such a good list! I used to collect bags and have a some nice ones – Ralph Lauren, Mulberry but I don’t so much anymore – do like that kate Spade one though

  32. 10/09/2018 / 1:13 am

    I’d love to own a designed handbag one day, but I don’t know which one. Maybe a Mulberry!

  33. 11/09/2018 / 5:59 pm

    Oh my gosh these are all so beautiful! What a great list full of awesome ideas! I totally admit I am a handbag fan myself so I am all for lists like this.
