We’re big fans of self-care, whether that means a solo trip to the movies or a calming nightly skincare ritual. As you might expect, though, handbags are our favorite way to indulge ourselves. Retail therapy is totally a real thing, and when it comes time to shop, you know which section we’re headed to first.
We’ve inched one day closer to our favorite day of the year, National Handbag Day, and we’re still thick in the midst of preparation and celebration. (Not that we don’t celebrate bags every day, because: duh.) Today, we’re taking a close look at some of Fall 2015’s most popular pieces, and I’ve read my tea leaves to see who it is who might be picking these pieces up for the season.
It probably won’t surprise you to hear that we are staunchly Team Treat Yo’self. Everyday life can be drudgery, and everyone has to find his or her own ways to make it sparkle. Our preferred method is the stalking and eventual acquisition of beautiful accessories, and if you need a little extra encouragement we’ve got it below.
If I may be so bold: being super into handbags is kind of weird, but mostly just in the ways that being super into anything is kind of weird. Who knows why any of us settled on bags instead of knitting or gardening or vintage teapot collecting, but here we are, and like any group, we’ve all developed a little bit of specialized knowledge during our purse travails.
A new season always brings with it lots of new choices, but Fall 2014 feels particularly full of brand-spanking-new handbag options from some of the biggest accessories labels in the world. Now that all the dust has settled and these designs have arrived in stores, we combed through the collections to find those that are most worthy of your new handbag dollars.
