The Forever Bags to Say I Do to in a Heartbeat
Yes, it's a match made in (handbag) heaven and you can count on these classic pieces to stay with you for a long, long time.| June 25, 2020
Designer bags, they don’t come cheap. We’re talking price tags well into the four-figures. It’s a whole lotta dolla, dolla bills to part with but in the words of Carrie Bradshaw, “I’m thinking balls are to men, what purses are to women. It’s just a little bag but we feel naked in public without it.” Read: Bags are a wardrobe essential. Hence, extremely important and absolutely necessary.
That’s what we tell ourselves anyway. When it comes to bag purchases, self-discipline gets left at the door. From one handbag fiend to another, we completely get it. The temptations season after season demand a level of restraint that most of us remain hopeful of mastering someday. That one fine day when we can walk through a store completely unfazed by rows and rows of bags calling out to us.
But in the meantime, we could all do ourselves and our bank accounts a service by rationalising our handbag splurges. Wait, what? Rationalising…a splurge? Hear us out. Leading into these fairly big-ish purchases, there are a couple of questions to run through your mental checklist. How much wear am I going to get out of the bag? Is it a practical fit (quite literally) for all that I haul around on the daily? We all know microbags don’t do very much besides sitting pretty. Do I see myself slinging this on my shoulders a year from now?
And if the carryall of your heart’s desire checks all of the aforementioned boxes, she’s a keeper. We’re playing cupid by pulling together a lineup of timeless pieces from this year’s Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter showings. Are you ready to meet your match?
