Recently, Megs responded to one of our readers who was looking to choose between three options to buy her first premier designer bag, and her question got me thinking about how the accessories landscape must look for someone just beginning in 2016.
No matter how long I cover the accessories industry, it never fails to mystify me what it’s possible to buy with a couple mouse clicks after a few too many glasses of wine. Every season, we survey the most expensive new women’s bags on offer in order to look for trends at the top tier of the market, and that’s just what we’ve done today.
We spend plenty of time around here talking about three categories of bags: classics, It Bags and trendy seasonal options. There’s a fourth category, though, that deserves an enormous amount of credit: the workhorses. They captivate customers and fill closets for seasons on end, mostly without the credit they deserve.
It’s finally here! Our third annual National Handbag Day has finally arrived, after a full week of fun and anticipation, and we couldn’t be happier to share this day with you. Check out all the ways we’re planning to celebrate below, and let us know how you’re enjoying your love of bags in the comments.
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.
