Let’s get serious, women love handbags, if we were all millionaires our closets would be overflowing with them, we would have every size, color and shape! Unfortunately, being fabulously rich is certainly not the case for the most of us, so being practical and realistic is our only option. when deciding on buying a new handbag, we have to take many things into consideration, we need to ask ourselves many questions….will it match most of my clothes, will it hold the weight that I normally travel with on a daily basis, will it be comfortable, will it last and most importantly, is it pretty!
Sometimes finding a bag that suits all of our needs is a hard task, and more often than not, when we find the perfect bag, it is out of our price range! The bag that you ultimately decide upon must meet at least your most important criteria; if you are looking for everyday comfort and you don’t have lots of weight to carry, a cute crossover may be the one for you. If you usually carry lots of weight that is bulky, you may lean more towards a larger type bag, like a shopper or mid-sized tote.
If it is quality that you are looking, stay away from faux leather and polyurethane and try to find genuine leather which is stitched. You should know though, when looking for a quality bag, you are more likely to spend more money on it initially, but it tends to pay off in the long run as the bag has a longer longevity. In terms of bags made from fabrics, make sure that the fabric is nice and thick as opposed to light and thin, again this will cost you a bit more, but it will be well worth it in the end.
When buying a handbag, you should examine it to ensure that the quality of the handiwork is up to standard. Ensure that there are no faulty zippers, and that straps are firmly secured, look at the stitching to make sure that it is nice and straight. After all, it is your money that you are spending; make sure that you are making the most of how you use it.
