One of my favorite weekend readings is the Life & Style section in The Wall Street Journal‘s Saturday/Sunday issue. On the cover this past week was this article which discussed the move away from the “It” bag and toward more individualized tastes and void of exterior labels. It’s an interesting proposition, but from my own opinion, an investment bag isn’t anything that is purchased thoughtlessly, each season or to follow a trend. It is something that works with one’s lifestyle, preferences and budget, and if the fashion press has happened to label it an “it” bag, so be it, no?
Wherever you fall on the issue, it reminded me of how long I have had my own day tote, and still love it. And while I continue to receive compliments on it, I purchased it and love it because it works for my lifestyle (I need a lot of interior space), is a color that is a statement (cerulean) but also works with just about any outfit I choose, and was the right price for an investment item. At the bottom of today’s post are a few options for handbag’s in a variety of colors, styles and prices just to give you some ideas. Enjoy perusing!
