Quilted Forever

For as long as I can remember, it seems that quilted bags have always been around since I was little. Made popular by Coco Chanel, now the less expensive versions of quilted bags are spurting everywhere, making the style accessible to everyone with every budget. Of course, many of the branded quilted bags, such as Chanel, Lanvin, and Marc Jacobs, are made from premium (real) leather, whereas the budget version of them might be made from imitation leather. But, hey, sometimes one must compromise, right? I recently noticed that Topshop is releasing a handbag collection with a lot of quilted in sight. I personally will be looking for a roomy handbag in neutral colors for a quick cheer-up. I’m eyeing one of these!
