I Showed My 56-Year-Old Mom 33 It Bags—These Are Her Favorites

We’re back, y’all! And by we I mean my mom and me with a new story all about bags. This time, I showed her a whopping 33 It bags and asked her to share her thoughts on her favorites. She also had a lot of feelings about her not-so-favorites, and while I won’t tell you which bags didn’t make her cut, for entertainment’s sake, I’ll tell you that she threw around such phrases as: "hate,” "looks cheap,” "looks like a big box,” and "don’t like at all.” So yeah, it was fun!

Back to the handbags she did like since, thankfully, there was still a lot to choose from (18 to be exact). From new twists on old classics like the above Chanel flap bag in houndstooth and Dior's matte-black update to relatively newer cult labels such as BY FAR and Nanushka, her picks were all across the spectrum, so I'm confident there's something for everyone below. To see, read about, and shop the mom-approved purses, just keep scrolling.

Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour
Senior Market Editor

Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently senior market editor. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2020, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch 90 Day Fiancé.
