I have to say... a good... I mean really good, bag is such a great thing to have in your closet. I used to have several bags in my closet that were very mediocre and even though bags are one of my all time favorites I have come to discover that one or two quality bags in a closet are so much more than several mediocre bags. Yes I know its nice to have options, but man... its been my experience that once you have even one truly great bag, you have no desire to use all the others in your closet. So how do you do this on a budget. There are a couple of options.
1) find your fave and then look it up on ebay to see if its there... or amazon!
2) find a thrift boutique in your area and see whats hangin around there...
3) save in a money jar for a bit, and buy your all time fave.
4) buy on credit and pay as you wear.
All of these options may take a bit more effort and time, but sure worth it.
Here are some ideas that i have found and love.
Clair Vivier white 8" trop. My friends Kimberly and Katie both have bags from this designer... and yes... they both have different pieces and they both are exceptionally beautiful! Maybe one day I could be the owner of this white bag, or any other one of this lady's lovely hand crafted pieces.
