My  First  Designer  Bag  Purchase  and  What’s  Inside?

Happy Friday! Today I’m so excited to share my first designer bag purchase and what’s inside of it! I bought this a week ago and it’s my first official designer bag I’ve ever bought. I’ve always wanted one and I finally did it. I have so many on my wish list but for now I can start my collection small and affordable before I build it up. I also took outfit photos with it which will be out next week. For now I wanted to focus on my first designer bag purchase and what’s inside!

My First Designer Bag Purchase and What's Inside

The Bag

Now with this being my first designer bag, I wanted to let you know about it. So it is a Betsey Johnson but I’m not sure what bag. I got it at TJMaxx so that makes it old I guess since it was originally $98 and I got it for $20 which for me is such a great deal. I researched it and I found out that Betsey Johnson is a designer so I consider this a designer brand. It may not be up there with Chanel or Chloe as those are more high end but I guess this is maybe starting out designer and maybe close to Kate Spade. I consider it a designer bag and maybe you would too or you won’t but for me this is a big deal and I’m so excite to own this.

It is so pretty. If I was a bag I think I would be this bag. It’s pink, it has a floral print and most importantly it has bows. If I could some up my brand it would all be in this bag. It’s very spacious and fits so much in it. It has plenty of pockets and compartments to put stuff. The only con is that there is no zipper in the main compartment only a mini zipper in the middle which is where I can put stuff for it to be safe. Other than that I am loving this bag and it is so me.

I love the handles and it can be worn on your arm but when it is too heavy it has an over the shoulder strap so it is easier to carry. So far I’ve been enjoying it and now I can show you a sneak peak of what I usually carry around in it.

In my bag, esppecialy this one I can lug around a lot of stuff with me. That’s why I was sticking to mini cross body bags so I can just add the esenitals in and go. I couldn’t pass up on this bag and some times it is nice to have a bigger bag. I have the basics which is my coin purse, card wallet, keys and iPhone which are what I always carry around with me. Then i have my sunglasses, a makeup bag with a powder compact, lip balm and a few lipsticks inside. Next is my tech pouch that has all my gadget acessories like extra camera bateries, memory cards and pretty much a lot of my camera acessories all in that pouch so I don’t have it explode everywhere at the bottom of my bag. Then there is headphones, a power bank and lightning cable to charge my phone on the go that I keep in the other zip pocket. Since I got this planner recently I have it in there as well and a pretty pen. Last is a water bottle and I can drink so much water so I need one and this fits perfectly inside. Another thing that fits inside is my iPad Air and I can take that with me if I need it. I can fit so much more in but of course it gets heavy if I do. I even added a light cardigan inside and it fit so if I could I would take my whole house with me and it would still fit.

If you want to see what’s really inside as this was just a summarized portion then I filmed a what’s in my bag video over on my Youtube channel where I show everything and the story behind the bag. So if you head over please subscribe here.

My First Designer Bag Purchase and Whats Inside

So that was my first designer bag purchase and what’s inside! I have done two other what’s inside my bags which you can find here and here on two other bags I owned. I love being nosy and seeing what others carry around with them so here is my version so I hope you enjoyed it and like my new bag. I still can’t blieve I own this and it is just so pretty. I’m still going to save up for my dream designer bag but for now I had to start somewhere and this is it. Let me know if you consider this designer and what your first real designer bag purchase was if you have one. I’d love to know!
