All women own them. They come in different shapes, sizes, materials, and designers. Whether you use it for work, play or evening, it's what's on the inside that counts. Our handbags hold magical powers that help us battle every occasion. Personally, I have lots of handbags - a girl can never have too many handbags or shoes - but 3 basic styles that get me through my day - a satchel for work, a cross-body for shopping, and a clutch for an evening out. I never really thought about my handbag style and how to care for them until I discovered Rue La La's Handbag Guide which is a wealth of information on handbags. If you love handbags as much as I do, you should definitely check it out!
My go to day bag for work is a satchel. I typically remove the crossbody strap, but I like the option. I like that a structured satchel is professional looking, but still holds all they stuff I need to make it through a day.
Rue La La recommends it and it is a good idea to keep them clean and dust-free. I keep my handbags in constant rotation - I typically switch them out every 1-2 weeks so they don't have time to get too dusty.
For shopping I like a cross-body bag to keep my hands free. This is one I purchased from Coach. My first nice handbag was a Coach that my husband bought me in 1991. For many years I stayed away from Coach, but I have re-discovered them over the last couple of years and I am again a fan. I also like their small leather accessories which seem to last forever.
Finally, for a night out with the hubby or with the girls, I don't need much so a clutch is my go-to. I have several, but this Kate Spade is one of my favorites.
I hope you enjoyed the peek inside my bags. What's in your bag?
