Purchasing A Luxury Handbag

Purchasing A Luxury Handbag

Purchasing a luxury handbag can be overwhelming. Especially if it is the first time you are investing in one! Last year I created a blog post on fall handbags and it has a lot of great information that can be applied to purchasing your first handbag. You can also see the handbag I picked up last year that is a much more affordable bag but has really great quality.

You need a handbag, but where to begin? Let’s start by thinking about functionality. For your ultimate handbag guide ask these questions:

  • How often do I see myself wearing this?
  • Where do I intend to wear it?
  • Is this something I’ll have for years or just a short term whim?
  • Can it be easily worn?
  • What needs to be able to fit inside of it?

Once I can answer those questions I have a better idea of what I’m looking for. When I know how often and where I want to wear it, I’ll be able to think about the style- clutch, shoulder, tote, etc.
