i’ve wanted the furla candy handbag since i first laid my eyes on one early last year. i couldn’t bring myself to spend $200 on a plastic bag but now that i’ve seen the spring/summer 2012 furla candy bag…i am obsessed again. luckily i found a few less expensive options that will be perfect for spring.

the original furla candy satchel – this is the bag that started my obsession.

furla candy satchel spring/summer 2012 – how fab is this bag?!?!

ASOS frosted bowler bag – i think i may get one of these…but which color???

topshop frosted plastic holdall – these are super cute too!

forever 21 fluorescent boston bag – this one is only $12.80!

what do you think of “plastic bags”? do you think they are a “do” or a “don’t”?

    when I only saw the furla candy bag photo on the top of your post and read the text – I wouldn’t spend that much money on a plastic bag either – I wanted to immediately to show you the bags of asos, but then I scrolled down and realised you already found them 😉
    I think they are a great alternative, less cheaper and more individual (at least in munich the candy bag is not a seldom bag on the street, whereas I haven’t seen the asos bag anywhere yet!).
    Let me know what you decide, I like all of the options you show here except the one of forever 21.

    Furla ones are really too expensive according to me. At least I wouldn’t spend that much! But the ASOS ones look cute.. I might buy those too! Thanks for suggesting!

    I’m actually not a fan of the last jelly bag. The yellow is see-through. I wouldn’t want people to see what is in my bag.

    I don’t know about the jelly/see through part, but I do LOVE the colors!

    I’ve always wanted one of these too! At first I was hesitant, then I saw the Furla’s in real life – hooked!
    The F21 is the best money option, by far! Awesome deal.

    How much fun are they. I remember jelly bags the first time round when they used to holey baskets. The pale blue one with the brown leather trim is stunning. They will be perfect for taking onto the beach.
