The 90’s are back!

I’m very fond of shoulder bags and I have an entire collection of baguette purses in various styles. I remember shortening the straps of my small sling bags to give them that look (of a 90’s purse) before these bags made a comeback... like I said, I have always been into them & I’m totally obsessed with my collection.

What I particularly love about the above pic where all these girls are trying to be snooty & sassy is their chic style - ankle tie sandals with cute bows, pumps, stilettos & pretty kitten heeled slip-ons, all paired with small clutches & baguette purses. The 90s & early 2000s were the trendiest years in the past three decades!

Such cute cropped “tops” have made a comeback too... so have high waist jeans to give you that doll like silhouette.

Lily Rose Depp in the above pic is seen wearing a pair of high waist denims in deep blue, she has matched it with a cardigan top and a black baguette bag with golden clasp lock in technical fabric.

Although my all time favourite bag would be the Metis from L.V. I’m more possessive about my small purses.

Luckily, I got it in an affordable price range when it was launched ie: on a random weekend (not that it didn’t burn a hole in my pocket) by Monday, it’s total value escalated to 185000/- ‘cuz Angelina Jolie was seen carrying it! The guys at LV excitedly told me “Mam the bag you booked on Saturday is selling at a double price now!” Lol! The invoice had already been generated so I didn’t pay more.

But, but, but...

that doesn’t mean I splurge.

I don’t believe in spending 8-50k on vintage designer bags (not disparaging ‘em) when I can get fresh new branded bags under 2000/- The straps are also adjustable...

This is clearly not something I would invest in:

Now I’ll like to present to you, one of my priciest possessions, my entire Collection of Baguette Bags... well they are not that pricey to be honest 🧿 Also, its a beautiful blend of pastels & neutrals.

I’ve been collecting them since the past 24 months... you’ll find better quality on None of them have crossed the average budget of 2500/- (INR) In fact, most are in the price range of 1200-1800 Also, they look far better in real life! Editing/Product Names & Description by Me.

Guess which are my fav top 3?

  1. The Stylish Burgundy Hobo Baguette (Faux Croc Leather) The packaging was great, freshest piece I could ever get, all metal pieces were carefully laminated in butter paper & plastic to avoid scratches and dents.

  2. Sassy early 2000s Soft Beige/Camel Purse with ajustable strap.

  3. Glamorous Padlock Chain Purse I used to admire this style when I was a kid... I would always think, “When I’ll grow up, I’d carry such handbags!” By the time I landed into my teens, we had oversized totes in style and these were nowhere to be found... they were more compact & compatible with smaller Nokia phones or flip sidekicks but when screens grew larger so did the bags. Luckily by my early 20s, we had baguette bags back in trend!
