Gabs Bag

On our trip to Germany, Andy bought me a handbag as an early birthday present. It’s a Gabs bag.

Gabs is an Italian company, founded in 2000. One fun element of Gabs bags is that they can often be transformed into different shapes. The same bag can morph from a boxy bag to a bucket-style bag to flat tote.

My sister has a large collection of Gabs bags in all different shapes and colors, and I like her colorful and unique bags. I decided to get a green one - I love the color and the ways it can be transformed. It was on sale - reduced twice - and therefore a great deal. Plus, I think the shade of green can work year round.

The bags have fun (and useful) elements, such a tiny notebook and a shopping bag that’s attached to the interior of the bag.

Gabs’ trademark is the pretty turquoise button.

Here are a few photos of when I carried the Gabs bag in Germany.

And here we are in Aschaffenburg, another small(ish) town along the Main river with a castle, beautiful gardens, numerous interesting churches, a museum that is a replica of an Roman villa (Pompejanum), and more.

I always love looking back at photos from our trip… Here are more Gabs bags I wouldn't mind owning:

Questions: Have you heard of Gabs bags? If so, do you own one? What are you looking for in a handbag? I never used to be a “bag lady” until fairly recently. At this point in my life I see a bag as an investment piece that I intend to carry for many years, but I don’t want to spend too much money on a bag as I live a pretty active and casual life. But I’m more and more aware of the fact that a bag can add some quite a bit of interest to an outfit.
