botkier obsession.

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!

DO YOU LOVE BOTKIER? WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE DESIGNER FOR HANDBAGS?

I have always been a fan of Botkier bags; however, my favorite designer bags are B. Makowsky, Balenciaga, and Marc by Marc Jacobs. Love love!! :)

Rachel said...

I'm seriously in love with that teal bag. The color is GORGEOUS!
I don't have any Botkier bags myself, but I'm loving your collection. I think I buy way too many Michael by Michael Kors bags. Well, is there really such a thing as too much Michael Kors? :P

Great buys! My friend has a black Botkier bag -- not sure of the style -- and it is gorgeous and very well made. I love Marc by Marc Jacobs for day-to-day bags. They are cute, stylish, and not too price-y. Enjoy your buys! xo style, she wrote

MyOhMy! You might have created a monster. Shame on youuuu. Haha.
I'm usually waaay too cheap to justify spending so much on my bags, but this post alone might be just enough to change my mind. I think I may be in love. And I'm not so sure there's a remedy! (Except for splurging of course!)

Happy New Year! xx

I need to brush up on my designers. How pathetic is it that I've never heard of this label?! Great bags though, I especially like the first one!

Wow very cool bags and a lovely collection. I especially like the first one because I love light pink and nude tones at the moment.

They are beautiful! Nothing feels better than a soft leather handbag :) The very first bag in the nude color is gorgeous!

Do you know, I'm such a Botkier virgin! Never even heard of them. This nude bag is an absolute beaut though, going to check what's leftovers in the sale! :) Thanks for the heads up! jazzy ♥

elledee said...

ooo I love all these, so pretty!

MizzJ said...

Great collection, I love the nude bag! Few things make me feel better than a new handbag, so I totally understand the joy you got out of these :) Looking at my current collection, it seems like anything Michael Kors does it for me.
