I loved Purse Bop’s top ten picks for 2016. Of the ten bags given shout outs, my personal favorites in my collection were the WOC and the Palm Springs backpack. I feel that the WOC will continue to be a classic top ten pick year after year, be it YSL/Chanel/Etc., but the surprise champion in practical workhorse for myself was the rise of the backpack.
Before 2016 I had actually never bothered with owning a WOC because while I love cross bodies, I could never commit to clutches because I was a Mary Poppins kind of purse packer so WOCs seemed like unlikely aaaaalmost bags that I could try if only they were bigger – at which point they would simply be cross bodies and what would be the point? However, when a black fringe YSL one went on sale I couldn’t stop myself. And then it was love at first “Oh my god, I DON’T need to carry around all of this stuff!” sight.
I’ve definitely gotten so much more use out of my black fringe YSL WOC than I ever imagined that I would. And I’ve used my MM Palm Springs backpack more in one year than I’ve used some bags in three years – it’s held up marvelously and been such a phenomenal backpack as a fun travel companion, for running errands, or just going for a backpack feel that day. I use my Givenchy Antigona as well…but reach for the PS more often as a workhorse.
What are your favorite’s from Purse Bop’s Top Ten Bags of 2016? Would you add any to the list? Take any off?
PS. I can’t seem to upload any photos to this post – it keeps saying “Forbidden”, but when I figure it out I’ll post pics of my two faves from the list in action.

Love your write up on our top 10 bags! Thank you for sharing in such detail! I love the Mary Poppins analogy ?? I still don’t have a WOC ? But you have inspired me to try. Could your image be too large – although there should not be any restrictions. If it still doesn’t work, email to me please at firstname.lastname@example.org ??
