Well, we all know I have a designer purse problem. Welcome the newest to the family, Miss Chloe (the paraty bag). I sold two Louis Vuittons for her, and I’m totally OK with that and let’s say that’s the amazing thing about designer purses – certain ones anyway, even if you own them for a long time, resale value isn’t bad.
If you’ve been following along for a while, you’re probably wondering, wait, what about that investment handbag you swear you stick to only buying one handbag every 2-3 years, the vintage Chanel? Oh well yeah, but in this case, I traded two for one, so it didn’t cost me anything, and I am still on my path to minimizing – fewer, better things.
So anyway, as I put this gal into my purse rotation (trying to rotate my purses), I figured if only it was easier to switch out my contents, maybe a purse organizer would help. Yeah, seriously, OCD for the inside of my bags.
If you’re anything like me, I love having bags in bags in bags. I even have a pencil case by Ted Baker. I’m thinking maybe I should share my purse contents with you one day – once I clean up my act.
I ended up picking this one, in the color you see here because most of the interiors of my bags are brown and I didn’t want it to stand out:
Lots of different colors! I like the sky blue if I were OK with it being seen. But for now, I just prefer it to blend in.
Look at all those pockets! It’s like a Container Store in my bag! This is not a photo I took of my stuff by the way, this is from the store’s site. I do not carry that much makeup with me in my purse.
Another great thing about a purse organizer to consider is if you don’t have a structured bag – like the Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 (one of which I sold to FashionPhile), this helps it have more form. Just make sure you check the dimensions of the inserts to fit within your bag, or most of them anyway.
There are so many all over the web if you just search “purse organizer” and they come in every color in the rainbow. Keep this in mind as you see these photos below, you can find the color you gravitate towards. These are nylon and I’m not sure how I feel about the sound of it, so I really liked that I decided to go with felt which is quiet.
Is that strange?
What do you think? I’m really looking forward to being able to find every bag within my bag. Or maybe I can take some out of bags since there are pockets. Organizing is so much fun – sometimes I think I’m just an organized hoarder.
