Spring Break splurge! Michael Kors bag!

So I had to take advantage of a great deal on a bag I've been coveting. I immediately loved the Michael Kors Jet Set Medium Tote. I was searching for a black with gold accents bag and Michael Kors seemed like a good brand to shop. I initially considered the Michael Kors Astrid Satchel, as seen frequently on Mix & Match Fashion. I also considered the Marc Jacobs Hillier Hobo Bag, frequently seen on Ruffles and Sequins.



In the end I decided to stick with what works best for me. The Michael Kors tote that I bought is remarkably similar in design, quality, and durability to the Louis Vuitton Neverfull. At the risk of sounding like an LV snob, I own a few LV items, including three bags. My LV bags are my "go to" bags -- I saved up a lon-nnng time for each of them, and I have certainly made up for the lofty price tag based on "cost per wear" (which I fully believe in. ) Still, after several years of wearing my timeless LV bags, I really wanted a black bag that could work as a work-to-weekend bag. This one was perfect! To get a modest discount on the retail price helped set this splurge into motion.

I have been super happy with this purchase! Also, I think that being a little tight with my purchases lately has helped to make it more "special" and enjoyable.

  1. This bag is amazing. I've been considering a new tote and this ones on the list. So tired of my diaper bag, you may have pushed me over the edge with this post raving about it. XO!

    1. I could see this being used as a diaper bag. They make this bag in other smaller and larger sizes, and in other colors and materials!

      Thanks for commenting!

  2. Ha...great minds think alike! Guess what? I took a couple of days off last week while my son was at home for spring break and.....purchased a Michael Kors handbag! :o) I got the Hamilton...and the leather is like "butta". It'll have to wait but I've also got my eye on the MK Selma...it's very "Celine-ish". :o)

    1. I'm only getting in Michael Kors within the last year or two. First I fell in love with the watches -- I have two. Then I picked up a bag from Marshall's that I really liked. But this bag is by far better!

      I just looked up the Selma --- it is gorgeous! Have you posted a photo of you wearing it on your blog yet?
