I’d like to get a new purse for Spring/Summer. I’ve been carrying a dark brown Cole Haan bag that I bought while thrifting in NYC (name dropping!!). I do enjoy it, but it looks like Winter to me now.
I won’t bore you with all the different bags I’ve got my eye on, but the main categories are Plain and Fancy.
Plain is good quality, good construction, solid color leather in a neutral color. This bag will “go” with everything, hold all my goodies, and make me feel well-dressed when I use it. I will get two years’ wear from it, and then pass it to my baby sister (age 42), who seems to love all my purses : >
The Plain Bag looks something like this:
|Lovely, right? By Fossil, about $200 when not on sale.|
Fancy is also good quality, but it’s bold, colorful and has a point of view. It might not go with everything. It will make me smile when I look at it. Will I love it for two years? Not sure. I love it right now! It looks like this:
|Crazy pretty. Anna by Anuschka, about $136|
Help me out, friends. Which should I buy? Please vote in the comments, if you have a moment. I appreciate your feedback and fashion wisdom!
