Bags that dare to be different

Crazy, bold, daring. Be different, make a statement, with these bags which push the envelope of mainstream.

Bags that Speak

The Marc by Marc Jacobs collection has several bags from pencil cases to totes screaming in loud font singular words like 'Stuff' and 'Cram'.

Target has a line of mini totes with words like Life of the Party, Spoiled and the above, I (heart) Bling in various metallic colours.

Chanelling Lulu - The art of Whimsy

This Bolero bag from Dooney and Bourke is so Kate Spade meets Lulu Guiness. It reminds me of the candy house in Hansel and Gretel! Only for the daring.

Other interesting bags include the Charm Bagpack and the Pyramid bag above.

Moschino has also hopped on the whimsical bag bandwagon to come up with this LadyBug bag which so reminds me of:

This MJ babydoll top.

If you have followed bag blogs in the past, you would have come across many bags that look like apparel, like skirts and lingerie for example.
Target joins the club with this cutesy Dottie Loves Glam Pleated Skirt Handbag.

The re-made Beach Bag

Not your typical plastic beach bag, these re-made beach-inspired bags totally fit Spring's nautical trend:
