confession time. i always have admired botkier from afar. i've always loved their designs. i even tried to get a botkier x target bag a few years ago - but the quality was truly (and unfortunately) disappointing.
this summer, i was admittedly going through a lot (sleeping at the hospital every night with my dad being sick and unfortunately passing away...aka the nightmare summer).i turned to shopping to make myself feel better (temporarily at least). i updated my designer handbag collection with four new bags from botkier.
the thing i love about the botkier website is the fact that they do list some amazing sales every so often. if you're dying for botkier like i was dying for it - keep your eyes on that section. i really got more for my money and added some beautifully crafted handbags to my collection!
i DID get all of these bags on sale, which is the reason why i was able to buy them all. at the time, they were having an amazing sale and i had some $ saved up. so it was well worth it for me - especially when you're talking about amazing, buttery italian lambskin. i don't need to brag about the quality of botkier - it speaks for itself.
harper hobo in naked
i was on the hunt for a bag that fell into the nude trend of last summer. i LOVE this shade of nude/pink. it's so versatile and classic.
harper large satchel in teal
i fell in love with this bag and literally stalked it. i was so afraid that it would sell out at the awesome sale price that it was listed at. i don't own any bags that are this color so i figured it was a cool addition to my collection. i wore it almost all summer and it was the perfect bag for the summer! i LOVE that you can wear it crossbody too.
dion large hobo in expresso
i originally ordered this as a laptop bag for my mac book, but decided that it was TOO nice to keep it just for a laptop bag. i LOVE LOVE LOVE the shape of this bag and i can fit my life into it. i've actually seen this particular bag on gilt groupe recently.
bond st. small hobo in gold
i LOVE gold. and i can never have enough of it! :p i adored the mesh detailing on this bag.
the only thing that kinda bugged me was that i had to pay for shipping on each order. we all know i'm kinda allergic to paying for shipping, but at the prices that i got the bags at, i really can't complain! also - just a heads up, all sale items are final sale. so if you do order a sale item, keep this in mind.
i can honestly say that i don't own any bags that are in any way similar to my botkier bags. they're all really distinct (in a good way!) i always like, stalk, their shoe section. hopefully i can add a pair of botkier shoes (and more bags, of course! :p) to my collection in the future!
