I have recently blogged about my itch to get another bag. Though I am not itching to get a designer bag, I still don’t have the budget to get ANY kind of bag right now. I read an article online about the bags that all women need to have, at least one of each and I think I’ve got three out of the five already. I am not one to hoard, since I buy and sell those that no longer fit my style or I don’t use that much. You also won’t see me buying a designer bag for a dog bed too
A Party Purse: Every girl needs a cross-body or clutch bag for going out — be it black, leather, sparkly or gold. Not too fancy, but not too casual, this is your go-to for everything from date night to girls night.
A Tote Bag: This carry-all is for the days when you’re toting everything but the kitchen sink (your laptop, lunch, work-out gear – it all goes in here). Be it leather, canvas, or nylon, this bag should go with a lot and hold a lot. - HAVE
The Evening Bag: Sophisticated occasions (weddings, galas, etc) call for a sophisticated evening bag. A clutch in neutral, easy-to-match hues (black, gold, silver) is the optimal choice.
The Shoulder Bag: This bag is your workhorse – you carry it to work, out shopping, etc; works best in a neutral “goes-with-everything” shade of leather, like black or camel. Expert tip: opt for a designer bag which will last longer. - HAVE
The Designer Splurge: Start saving, because a designer handbag is a must-have part of every woman’s collection. The lasting quality and style make it worth it. After all, this is the bag that will never go out of style and will be in your wardrobe rotation forever. Plus, your daughter will thank you when you pass it down to her! – HAVE
So I guess I should start saving for small clutches!
