Need recs for a purple/plum bag - under $400!

  1. I really want a purple/plum/eggplant bag for fall! Must be under $400. Medium to large-sized, something that I can use for work as well as weekends. Right now I'm thinking of the Hayden Harnett Inka (pic attached), but I'm looking for other recommendations! Tried the HH Lorca, and it was too small. HH Havana Hobo looks too casual. Really like the Anna Corinna Mini City Tote, but again, I don't know if it's appropriate for work. Thought about the Michelle Frantz carryall, but I'm getting it in black instead. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! I know if anyone can help me, you ladies can!

  2. How about this one? Bulga has fabulous leather and great quality...and a nice size. It's at Bagshop.com : Lingerie, Bras, Wacoal, Hanro, Sleepwear, NICK & NORA®, Handbags, Wallets, MAXX, Perlina, Hobo, Pashmina, Accessories, Lejaby . They may be out of this color, but if you email, they will order it for you - they've ordered for me before in different colors.

  3. I've actually been looking at the Laundry bag, and the price is right! Does anyone have any experiences with Shelli Segal bags? I also LOVE that Bulga bag, but I do need something that will fit comfortably over my shoulder, and I'm not sure that one will. Any more recs?
     
  4. Is wine colour close enough to plum? Please see bag by Dutchy:

  6. I was looking for a purple bag earlier this year and settled on the Kenneth Cole Hudson rivet hobo in plum... it's got great organization.. and it's funky.. I love it!
     
  7. I love all of these purple bags....If I were you, I would consider the Nana Doc Medium or the one you posted.
     
  8. i just got this one from Handmaid by Michelle frantz and i love it - here's a link to my full review: Grechen's Closet - It's not you, it's your closet., but in general, it's fabulous for the price right now ($169 with code grespc1).

    the only issue i have with it is that the opening is a bit small, but i can work around that. it's a fun bag and a great color...

  11. Thanks for the new recs! I just order the HH Inka in Plum, so we'll see how I like it. I need to have backup ideas in case it doesn't work though, so this is great!
