rainbow bright.

Hola! I hope you all had a magnificent Monday! If you clicked over thinking you'd see your favorite 80s cartoon character, I apologize for letting you down ;) With each day that passes in my {clothing} spending freeze, I find myself seriously reassessing how I'll be making purchases in the future. Over the past few years, I have focused on buying classic pieces, but more than ever, I need to invest in pieces which will outlive the trends. While I save my pennies for my next handbag, I'd love your input on which hues you think will stand the test of time! 


Seeing this colorful round-up all in one place just makes me happy! Though I'm a sucker for cobalt blue, my heart is being pulled to a classic red somewhere down the line. I won't be buying one of these bags in the near future, I can imagine the full array in my closet. Until then, I'll just keep dreaming in technicolor :)  Can't wait to hear your thoughts!

  1. Oh how I LOVE cobalt blue as well. I think red will truly stand the test of time: wear it with prints, neutrals, black + white...This post just makes me happy.

  2. I have a yellow purse and it goes with everything! I've also had green in the past and it worked with most of my clothes as well. I think I'd like to try something in the red hue soon though. Cute post. :)

  6. I think the second one down and the Kate Spade are classic shapes and the colors should stand the test of time.

  7. Oo tough decisions.. I'd go with either a yellow or purple. I wear a lot of neutrals so any pop of color would do the trick.

  8. with each bag i scrolled past, i was like 'i want that one....no that one.' Umm so hard to say. Love the orange but the blue is awesome and so is the pink....the green the purple and the yellow. I'm very indecisive.

  11. So fun!! I love the orange but I see how that might not be a classic color :/ I did always promise myself that when I finally invest in a leather Kate Spade that it will be kelly green like that!

  13. These are all great. I think that the red, green, or blue would be great additions to any closet!

  14. My head is saying the red is a classic no brainer, but my heart says go with the purple!! It's such an interesting shape. In terms of outliving the trend, I'd say the green Kate Spade is the most classic and functional shape. But they're all great bags, it's hard to nail down just one!

  15. I love the shape of the K. Spade, but the bright pink color is probably what best suits me. So cute.

  20. ooo tough one! I like all of these choices and blue is my favorite color, but I think the green would stand the test of trend-time! I love how that shade of green looks fantastic with neutrals and leopard prints. It's pretty versatile as a pop of color!

  21. BAHHHH the orange crossbody for sure!! I love the chain strap and the color is just so fun!

  22. I'll take one of each please!! I really need a new handbag too!

  23. Love that structured emerald bag–a colorful classic!

  24. As long as YOU love the color, I don't think the trend should matter! I've always been drawn to dark purple/mulberry colors myself...so if Cobalt is calling your name - go for it!

    I do love the first pink bag though - so cute! And the Kate Spade satchel is the DEFINITION of classic : )

  30. I carried a yellow bag all spring and summer one year — it surprisingly works with almost anything! And it always brightened my day to have such a sunny color with me everywhere I went.

  31. I love the green Kate Spade! It's even more beautiful in person-trust me!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'd probably pick the green one, because it's my favorite color. But, recently I have been coveting a large bright orange bag which I never thought I'd want in a million years. I mean, orange?! But it's GORGEOUS! :)

  33. I'm pretty sure with the structure and color of the Kate Spade, it will be "in" for years to come!

  34. I'm loving the neon colors that are on trend right now. I think I'd choose a bright orange bag!!

  35. I really like the orange! I'm not much of a color handbag gal but that orange is tempting!
