In The Bag

Dear L.L. Bean,

I am loving your new signature collection, especially the bags, one of my many weaknesses in life...Love that you have "archive" items, 1933 never looked so good...
It is not just the bags I love though, this outfit could be my late fall/winter staple...And while I could never pull off this look, it makes excited for the coming season and makes me think L.L. Bean...

Love the first bag and the last would be great for hauling around the camera and little samples while shopping. That long plaid bias skirt, I swear I once had something like that. Can't go there but love the sweater! Janell

Ooh, love those bags. LL Bean is definitely stepping it up!

I am guilty of getting an LL Bean catalog & never cracking it open, only to throw it in the recycling. I recently actually opened the catalog & was shocked how hip their lines have become. Your post is more proof that I will no longer be 'not' looking. The maxi skirt, wow...if that isn't a flash back, love it!

Great day to you Marianne. xx

I love this line too! Was checking it out the other day, I love that suede tote!

Wow, so chic! I just saw one of the leather totes in Lucky and couldn't believe how cute it is!

I love the lines on the first bag!

L.L.Bean is a staple at my home, and I feel like a part owner at times. The quality cannot be surpassed and they stand behind what they sell. I just bought some monogrammed totes, which I can't get enough of.
These bags are great!
Thank you for sharing.

I am shocked and surprised that these are actually from L.L. Bean. It's been awhile since I have even looked through their catalog, I will now!

Melissa @ Veranda Interiors said...

I love when a company comes out with items that you would not suspect. All great pieces.

Jamie said...

I NEVER would have thought that any of these items were LLBean... I think I'll stop discarding the catalog when I receive it in the mail!
Blessings.

Jennifer said...

I loved several things from the Signature mail-out I just got!

Jade @ Flip Flops + Pearls Design said...

Those bags are AMAZING! Must have one!!

JMW said...

I know! L.L. Bean has infused some life into their collection. I thought the same things about their handbags - I'd take anyone of those pretty purses. And that long skirt is just gorgeous - a must-have!

Stephanie Sabbe said...

I did not know LL Bean was that cool. I pass their stores all the time, thinking only of sweaters and duck boots

Ms. Bake-it said...

I love LLB! Great bags! I am hoping I get a chance to visit their store while I am in Maine next month.

When I think LL Bean, I think backpacks, barn jackets (remember how popular those were in college?) and fleeces. Im a dork...went to the website looking for one of the cute dresses you revealed here and couldn't fknd it. Because I was in the regular LL Bean, not Signature! Finally figured it out!

Looks like I'll have to stop in the store next time I'm in Maine!

Miss E said...

Love those bags! I'm def going to have to check their website out. Thanks for sharing!

Megan said...

Wow! I'm loving their makeover... and I agree although the last outfit would make most people look hideous it is so cozy and autumnal that it makes me want to start a fire!

LAURA!!! said...

I couldn't agree more. I've been eying that skirt... but will I wear it enough? Will it go on sale? these questions have been running through my head... :)

Sarah said...

I know! I am so excited at this direction LLBean is taking!! That last bag is my FAVE!!

emily said...

Those first 2 bags may have to make their way onto my Christmas list!

paula said...

I didnt even check out the bags! so happy you posted them, they are gorgeous.

Down and Out Chic said...
