off post: designer nylon bags

today i was thinking about my love/hate relationship with designer nylon bags. nylon as a material is cheap. really cheap. some people honestly dislike it because why pay designer prices for a bag that may or may not stand the test of time (in comparison to leather). some think nylon bags are cheap and tacky looking.

i CAN feel that way sometimes. nylon bags are honestly the easiest bags to counterfit for little cost. but ive known myself to gravitate to them as well. i love how if it gets wet in the rain i dont have to fuss over keeping it dry, because its nylon. :) I love how it is a rougher bag and i can stuff a lot of things into it.

but its not leather. wait do i really want leather? do i want to pay the price of a leather designer bag, or just get the designer label with a more inexpensive alternative?
prada has to be my favorite nylon bag provider. :) they have a good variety and have been eying one for a few months now.

here are some designer labels that carry nylon bags:

- Longchamp
- Kate Spade
- hermes
- tod's
- marc jacobs
- christian dior
- fendi
- gryson
- lanvin

here are some of my current favorites:

The Dior is really nice. I quite like the Tod's ones, especially the one Sienna Miller has her hand on in the ads. But I can't say I'd ever actually buy one myself.
