Our handbags say a lot about our personal style.  Are we structured and efficient, or maybe we have a free-spirit bohemian type of flow that speaks to our inner-selves.  Maybe you’re, a big logo kinda girl, or a modern-shabby chic lady with and edge.

No matter what fits your fancy take these few pointers into consideration when looking to invest in a great handbag!


First, make sure you LOVE the bag.  If the handbag is a little higher-priced than you are use to paying you have to ensure you love it in order not to have buyers remorse woes a short time later.

A bag you LOVE will be used time and time again, whereas a bag you think is “just ok” will likely be replaced quicker and become clutter.

Second, think about the shape you want – yes these things are important!  It’s an investment and it should tickling your fancy just by the thought of it.

Which brings me to the importance of choosing a color.  This is a vital step in the purchasing process; so make sure you find the right pop-of or neutral color that complements your wardrobe to maximize the use effortlessly.

Don’t forget to identify the purpose for the purchase as well. For example, determine if you are making this purchase for fun, a seasonal splurge or functional everyday reasons. Style-and-function go hand-in-hand for busy women; so before spending your coins, choose wisely and with a plan of attack.
