Trend Alert: Plastic Handbags

Here's the scoop with this one. I have been seeing plastic handbags in every which magazine. But, I think they are tacky most of the time. So, I held off until I found three plastic contenders that I felt were not as tasteless as the rest of 'em. I am proud to present you with a few plastic handbags that are fun and whimsical and maybe just a bit fantastically tacky.

kate spade 'cape cod griffen' tote, $145.


A couple more,


Lambertson Truex Sandy Tote w/Pouch
, $445.


Prada Women's Printed Plastic Tote with Leather Trim, $130.

I think this is a fashion mistake, personally.

i like the Dooney & Bourke ones. you get a good brand name and they're only $30. i expecially like the new madras one, its colorful and not totally clear and really cute for spring :)

I am so not a fan of this trend. Not only are they ugly, but why on earth would I want to pay $100+ for a bag when I could buy one that looks the same and is of virtually the same quality for $20 at Claire's. If I'm paying extra, I want quality and individuality.

I love the Coach ones (Coach costs like 4x more here in Singapore), and a couple of friends use them, but I wouldn't spend the money.

I like the white one. Plus side: If something spills it's an easy clean up ;)

Plastic bags are the worst. They show all of your purse contents (which usually aren't very organized and sometimes include tampons) and they feel awful against your skin in the summer. Why do they always try and bring them back? Lame.

you know, I always see the employees at department stores with these clear purses when they are on break or leaving and I always thought it was odd, now I understand why! I would hate to have everyone know whats in my purse, not a fan of that!

The first one is actually kind of fun, but not for that price. Overall, I'm not a huge fan of the plastic bags though...

WTF? Why... just... why? Although it might be fun to rock that bag and change your cell phone ringer to "Rock Lobster" by the B-52's. Definitely meet a lot of people that way!"Party like a rock star, pound like a porn star, play like an all star!"

After my retail experience, I really prefer to not carry my stuff in a see through bag, or anything involving plastic.

Yeah, I was thinking "I like the third one" before I looked at the name and price. Clear bags are fine for the beach, but not for everyone to see the mess that is your purse. Why not wear a clear shirt while you're at it? :-D

I could see using one as a beach bag but I still don't see myself carrying one.
