Anyone breaking in a beautiful new bag for holiday week... or hoping for a new and special one under the tree?

I've been sitting on a pretty Isabella Fiore leather and tapestry satchel with brick red as the predominate color and will be using it this week... I don't have a picture handy, but am trying to find one... Otherwise, I've laid in a supply of new bags in the 'from me - to me' gift giving category the hosts keep crowing about...

I nabbed an (as-is) Issac satchel in dark green (would love to have the red one too)...

Isaac Mizrahi Live! Bridgehampton Leather Satchel

Along with a Valentina (no, not Valentino) satchel in sumptuous glossy black leather with cognac trim...

There were a few other holiday treats along the way, but this will do for starters...

Anybody else?

Happiest of Holidays to all the bag ladies!

Re: new holiday bags anyone...?

As usual, stevieb, very nice selections!

I purchased a navy Coach Scout hobo with matching accordion wallet. Sorry, I'm not good at transferring pics :-(

Thanks HL, and no worries about the pictures. I wish I was better at it... Would love to post the Fiore bag! Enjoy your new gems!

My Aimee Kestenberg is almost here from Zulily in time for the holidays. I have this one in wine; ordered the caramel. I love the strap on this one plus the lighter weight. Enjoy your new bags everyone.

Is this your new Scout Coach?

Love this thread! There are some great bags here, you all have really great taste. I really wish I was a handbag designer or vendor.{#emotions_dlg.biggrin}

I got a new D&B ear early for Christmas from my husband, as I mentioned on another thread. I started using it early! (Charleston Shopper/tote, in grey).

The Dooney Sutton Hampshire just arrived from the Q, so I'm breaking it in (or simply adoring it) during the holidays.

I'm not a coated cotton gal (exception LV), but this is lush, better than LV. Has enough slouch to hug the body and enough room to hold a small village. The piping of green suede is elegant. Perfect signature bag for Dooney's 40th anniversary in 2015 (although Dooney didn't do handbags until 1981).

It's heaven to have a BIG bag that isn't leather-heavy, though I'll continue to relish my leather hobos.

Oh wow, I'm going to have to try to find a shot of the AK bag in wine... For some reason, the whole wine, Bordeaux (and so on) color has sort of taken me by storm this year...

In addition to the bags mentioned, I have to admit to having scored a beautiful Kors satchel in that color a week or so ago at TJ Maxx...

{#emotions_dlg.blushing}

I was torn between breaking in that one or the Fiore, but I've been sitting on that Fiore for a while, so went with it!
