Amanda's Must Haves: Oxblood Bags for Fall 2012

I'm an absolute bag whore.  Before my nail polish obsession set in, I had already begun to amass a small collection of handbags that are probably worth more than my life (I kid, I kid).  I still enjoy my bags and often make my friends smell how rich the leather is (sadly, I don't kid), but I tend to splurge about twice a year on classic pieces that will last me through the years.  

Today, I've amassed a few gorgeous bags from my favorite bag designers in the *it* color of the season: oxblood.  Or for those of you with a weaker stomach, burgundy.  

Note #1: I own eight Rebecca Minkoff bags (3 MABs, 3 MACs, 1 Cupid, and 1 mini mini MAB) and RM still remains my go-to for any handbag lemming.  If anyone has any questions about price, quality, and/or weight, please feel free to contact me because I consider myself a self-declared expert on her bags.  

Note #2:  Other than the RMs, I also own the Michael Kors tote in exactly that color, and I want to state for the record that the color is much richer in person and is proving to be a great, durable, and weightless carryall for the fall.  Seriously, amazing.

Note #3:  All of these bags range from $200+.  You can occasionally find some deals on eBay or etailers but just note that the prices are left off of these for a reason.  I apologize in advance for any damage done in showcasing some of the most drool-worthy accessories in a perfect for fall shade.

  9. I still do not understand Oxblood. Why not Buffaloblood? Elkblood? etc...?

  10. I suggest eBay or Bonanza for some really great deals on used ones. And the RM official site often has those on clearance, especially around the holidays.
