Since making the decision to not take my camera with me everywhere I go anymore (I have to turn it “off” sometimes, you know?), I’ve slowly been building up my handbag collection. I was never a woman that was concerned about having the latest “IT” bag, but I pretty much stuck with totes in a neutral color (black, tan, grey, or blush) so that I could easily run out the door. Well, it only takes getting a picture snapped with the same tote on your arm on multiple occasions for you to go waaaait, wait NO, lol. So, now I’m obsessed with finding really cute bags to update my closet with.
I find a lot of success on Shopbop (if you time their sales and markdowns right, you can luck up on some pretty cute designer bags for a fraction of the cost, especially when your budget is tight), but I also look around online and whenever I pop into a store. I still buy tote bags occasionally, but now I tend to gravitate towards crossbody style bags and smaller shoulder bags when I’m looking to add something new to my handbag collection. Smaller bags force me to narrow down what I’m carrying around with me, but I really find them to be super cute in general as well, lol.
