Everybody needs a good bag, and that goes double for the cat ladies among us!
Here are my top 6 picks (all of which I own and bought myself) for a stylish kitty excursion… minus the actual cats!
The Straw Bag
I actually got mine from ebay (a few years ago), so you might want to look there, but they also have the same bag on Amazon. There’s no brand, but I saw a few Japanese girls carrying them online and couldn’t resist! This is actually the first cat bag that I ever owned, and it’s been through three moves with me, so I’ll say that it’s a keeper!
Perfect for: Lazy summer days in the sun, or just being cute. It’s best paired with a matching hat, but I haven’t been able to find one that fits my head yet! (Let me know if you know of one!)
The Lily Bloom cat backpack
This backpack is small, but it’s waterproof and washes easily! Like most of my nicer bags, I got it at Ross (lucky!), but it’s totally worth paying full price for!
Perfect for: Sporty days when you’re going on a picnic, to the gym, or just need to be cute and busy at the same time!
Betsey Johnson Cat-face Backpack
I came across this backpack in Ross one day, and it was instant love at first sight! I now own four of her bags, and I plan on adding many, many more! This backpack is my go-to bag, as it fits my water bottle, wallet, phone charger, headphones, and any little knick-knacks that I may need on a given day. It’s not big, but I can even tuck my DSLR in there if I need to.
Perfect for: Anything but a formal occasion, and maybe even then…
The Lovely and Lush bag
I came across this bag ages ago on Modcloth, and I’m so glad that I did! I reach for it first whenever I need to dress up a bit! It has just enough room for my iPhone, some cash, my license, and lip gloss! What more do you need at a fancy little party? The ears have trouble staying up, but I don’t care because it’s so darn cute!
Perfect for: When you need to be a little bit fancy!
Betsey Johnson Cat-face Backpack – ver. 2!
I looooooove Betsey Johnsooooon! She seriously brings all of my cat-lady dreams to fruition! My bag is full of pins (not included!), but it’s cute without them, too! AND it comes with a little cat-ear pom-pom!
Perfect for: A sleepover, a night away, or even a camping trip! Be careful, because it doesn’t let go of dirt easily, but it’s just so freaking cute you’ll want to bring it everywhere!
Hello Kitty Mini Canvas Tote Bag in Pink Sakura
It’s out of print now, but you might be able to get one on Ebay! I looked while writing this article and didn’t find any, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t come up now and again! Anyways, I bought this a while back in the Sanrio shop in Ala Moana mall, and whenever I need a bag for something small, it’s the first thing that I reach for. The canvas is thick, sturdy, and it’s been through multiple dirty washings and come out unscathed.
Perfect for: Carrying your book and some water to the beach!
Well, that’s it for now! I will probably have to do another one of these in the future when I run into a few more favorites!
