A Style Cliques follower is on the search for a new handbag and asked us for some advice. Here are this fashionista’s criteria:
- Must travel well
- Just the right size, not too big nor too small
- Must have a top handle that easy hangs on the shoulder or a cross-body strap for hands free shopping
- Price range, less than $1,000
- Classic yet not boring
- Something I will love a long time!
- Can transition from Business to Casual Night Out
- Compartments and pockets for easy organizing
That’s a long list! The designer that immediately comes to mind is Tory Burch here’s why…
Classic lines are terribly chic neither trendy nor boring. Made to last, which means they will hold up to travel, and have tons of storage options with zippers and pockets galore. Zippers are important while traveling if ya don’t want your goodies sliding out during the security scan.
The price point is about $500. Well under Blue’s max budget, with those savings why not get a coordinating belt!
When or if you get tired of your Tory Burch there are lots of ladies on eBay or Craig's List willing to buy your hand me downs.
The right bag should make you look perfectly polished
Robinson dome satchel in New Ivory with gold hardware is stunning for summer. Has a large zipper center pocket and side pockets for easy access to your phone. Comes with detachable strap for hands free shopping.
It also looks great in brown
The nautical pattern on this patchwork Marion bag will add a punch to any ensemble. We especially love the adjustable chain straps, oh so chic!
don't waste your money, save for the bag you love
Robinson Double Zip in Powder Blue has double the space. If you aren’t sure about color it also looks fantastic in black, but this blue is definitely on trend this spring.
For a slightly casual look we recommend Amanda Classic Hobo. It easily slides over the shoulder, however, it doesn’t have a large zip pouch like the others.
