Handbags are a passion of mine. I feel they have the potential to completely switch up a look and to add some interest to it. I’m okay admitting that I am a handbag junkie. I’ve gotten better since I purchased my Michael Kors Hamilton Tote but I still like to look and if something jumps out at me I have no problem making the purchase. Below are a few bags in different price ranges. You will notice in the Splurge group they are all neutral/basic colors. That’s because I consider bags like that to be investment pieces and you should ALWAYS stay away from a trendy color or pattern when making that decision. I swear by it and it has done very well for me in the past.

What kind of bags to you usually go for? Have you purchased your statement/splurge bag yet?
I will take one of each please! (If only money grew on trees ;))
Ha. My neutral bag is red and all of my other ones are bright patterns. I’m a sucker for Vera Bradley so I have a lot of printed bags from them. Also some Tokidoki ones that I adore but are never quite the right size to actually be useful. I am also crazy and have a Kipling bag in 4 different colors/prints but since that bag design is now discontinued I feel like it was the right choice at the time!
Splurge wise I’d love a bag from Cambridge Satchel Co but I worry they’re impractical.
I think Cambridge Satchel is very practical. Especially for a person that works and may take the subway. The leather seems sturdy and the bag seems functional.
Love handbags too. I have not made a splurge purchase as of yet. Right now I’m sporting a Kavu bag because its functional and I can carry a nook and 2 books in it 🙂
It took me a while to make my splurge purchase. I mean I’ve had nylon Prada bags and Kate Spade and Coach. But I’ve never spent what I did on my Hamilton until I was sure. Best money spent.
