This Bookworm Loves Bags (& Nordstrom!)

Late last month, I was commissioned for my first ever sponsored post for Nuffnang, a company I’m affiliated with and whose ads you might have spotted on the blog occasionally. I was tasked to do an advertorial for Nordstrom, a fab international fashion brand, and while I’m so not a fashion blogger, this book blogger does appreciate vogue, especially for bags.

Here’s one thing I’ve yet to share with you my dear readers: I am a bag addict. Okay, not as much as I’m addicted to books but I just really have a strong passion for bags. I could have ugly old shoes for all I care but I need an awesome bag. They carry my precious books after all.

Anyway, when I checked out the Nordstrom coupon site, the page with essential Nordstrom promo codes, and got redirected to their sales and deals, I saw their gorgeous collection of discounted bags and I JUST HAD HEARTS IN MY EYES. Oh my goodness, I’d order all of them if I were a millionaire. Alas, I’m not but I reckoned if I couldn’t have them maybe I could share about them to my readers who just might be bag lovers too and might be interested in checking them out for themselves. Because guys, they’re on sale and at a wonderful bargain price especially if you use a Nordstrom discount code!!! I’m seriously considering spending my book savings for one of these:

bella - medium wristlet

Kate Spade New York ‘Bella – Medium’ Wristlet
This wristlet/pouch totally gets me!!! Cake for breakfast forever.

bedford square - kinslow satchel

Kate Spade New York ‘Bedford Square – Kinslow’ Satchel
Gosh, I love that color! The mint is perfect and I bet this satchel would be spacious and sturdy!

Danielle Nicole Abigail Drawstring Backpack

It’s in floral! I like how it matches with the black leather.

BP ‘Print Canvas’ Messenger Bag
I’m simple to please. Throw in some Aztec prints and you got me.

Pretty Duffel Bag

Marc By Marc Jacobs ‘Pretty’ Duffel Bag
It’s so colorful and great for stuffing a couple of books in for a weekend getaway!

Take Me Leather Tote

Marc By Marc Jacobs ‘Take Me’ Leather Tote
This is a perfect shopping for books kind of bag! Adore blue and green colors together!

Kate Spade New York ‘Grove Court – Fabric Maise’ Satchel
Bright satchels are my favourite thing! I love the shape and form of this one too!

    Definitely the Marc Jacobs one. They look like they can carry my kids toys and my books at the same time. I’ve always favored bags that can carry the necessity of being a mom on the go and a book lover. Arrgggh, I’m going to rob a bank now. *kidding* (no, i’m not)

      The tote or the duffel? Either’s awesome anyway! I’m not yet a mom *cackles* but I do prefer bags that carry a lot too! :D

        I’m leaning towards the duffel. More room for clothes in case of “emergencies” Haha.

    All the bags are so beautiful! I want them all!

    Wow…. I too am a big fan of cake! Especially for breakfast! Alas, all my money is spent on books or makeup. :(

    Stuff at Nordstrom are too dang expensive though haha. The Betsey Johnson one looks kind of cute. I’m not really a bag person..I just like to look at them when I’m shopping.

    Cute purses. ;)

    I love the mint Kate Spade bag. Nordstrom is great. My mom and I are always perusing Nordstrom rack. But we usually don’t buy anything unless it’s on clearance. All the stuff is designer, so shopping there lightens the wallet quite a lot.
