The Kelly Bag - A Classic

As I have previously mentioned on my blog, I am a bag addict. There is one bag I have yet to add to my collection, and that is a Kelly Bag, named after Grace Kelly, Princess of Monaco.

Grace Kelly, along with Audrey Hepburn and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis are all, in my opinion, fashion icons of their time. I find their style to be classic and timeless, and love to page through photographs of those lovely ladies.

Here is Grace Kelly carrying the bag that was named after her...
Here is her bag today...
This bag is a Hermes and retails for around $10,000....clearly this will not be finding its way into my closet, but I wanted to post a picture of the original.

Here is Chanel's version in black...still quite pricy at over $2000.

Louis Vuitton version of the Kelly Bag...again, quite pricy.

This version is Gucci...also with a pretty steep price tag.

Burberrys version....clearly I love expensive bags.

Here is a vintage Coach version of the Kelly Bag.

I LOVE this Ferragamo version...perfect for cocktail parties, luncheons, or even church.
As you can see, many different brands have copied the classic style of the original Kelly Bag. You can find reasonably priced "Kelly Bags" in every color imaginable at any department store, as well as TJ Maxx or Marshalls.
If I win the lottery, this ADORABLE Chanel would have to find its way to my's PINK!
All of these bags can be found on my Fabulous Bags Pintrest Board.
Do you have a Kelly Bag?

I would like one of each, please!! I too aspire to one day own a Kelly bag! I saw one identical to this at an upscale consignment shop in Dallas a few years back for $5K. It was in near mint condition... Tempting, but still out of budget. :(
