I remember when my babysitters all carried bucket bags with long straps. I think they all had perms and mom-butt jeans too…

Luckily, the latter trends have fallen by the wayside.

Last season, Alexander Wang resurrected the bucket bag with the Diego. Others, like Tila March, followed with the Bonnie– one of my favorite syles and now on SALE!

This morning I found this Louis Vuitton Sac d’Paule bucket bag on SALE at Portero for $483!

It is always safer to invest in trends when the designer is known to hold value and this bag is definitely not one a dozen.
