The return of the uber cool baguette bag. And the 411 on where to find them.

If you didn’t grow up with them, you will have caught them on the endless repeats of Sex and the City. The iconic late 90s early 2000’s baguette bag is well and truly back. Pre- the era of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen carrying around giant oversized bags -which I am sure will come back again soon. After all, it’s always swings and roundabouts! Once the fashion set gets sick of tiny bags that barely hold a lipstick or credit card, oversized bags will be back! It was all about the little short strap shoulder bag. Practical, hands-free and able to fit our iPhones, card wallets and lipsticks, they are a chic, fun bag style.

Famed by the flap-closure Fendi baguettes and Prada nylon zip closures, found predominantly through the mid-noughties in op shops, the ‘vintage’ bags have been cleaned up and increase in price from vintage designer stores. Though there are a few brands coming up with some new styles.

THE BY FAR BAGUETTE BAG

Named after their likeness to the French bread stick, the baguette bag has been my latest addition to my handbag collection. I eyed off a few vintage options on Vestiaire Collective and What Goes Around Comes Around before opting for a new baguette from one of my faves, By Far. Actually, I was tossing up between a croc print brown or black one from By Far or Little Liffner. When this hot pink bag came up as an exclusive with Shopbop I hit that confirm cart button right away!

Though I usually opt for a neutral (and might still- I love the ones from Australian brand Brie Leon), the pink was such a fun alternative. And after all, fashion is meant to be fun! A lot of the Fendi baguette’s were printed, bright or embroidered with sequins. The perfect day to night statement. So too is this little pink pop of colour. And of course, I love them with a neutral outfit. But there are no surprises there!

So, what do you think of the baguette bag? Are you into it? Does anyone else seem to be drawn to pink handbags? I’m a bit curious because this is about my third one. I somehow love a pink bag!
