While fashionistas may want to be on trend, a go-to handbag has to transcend passing fads. More than simply arm candy, a designer handbag becomes a classic piece if:
- It has a timeless silhouette
- It is made of quality material to withstand everyday wear and tear
- It provides functionality that serves your needs most of the time
- It has the versatility to effortlessly transition from work-to-play or day-to-night
The Anna Hobo in Navy is one buttery soft leather handbag that has many, if not all, of these characteristics. It's distinctive color with tonal stitching exudes an understated elegance. The contrasting studs and hardware adds a notable flair. The shape plays well in a professional environment while still working in a casual setting. At 16 inches in length and 14 inches in height, it is a great size for carrying around everything that you need! It is big enough to fit make-up, a book and a laptop for daily duty or can double as a trusty travel companion with a change of clothes in a pinch. If you are looking for a bit more pizazz, swap out the standard shoulder strap for an animal print strap.
When traveling lightly, a mini bag might be more suitable. Perfectly sized for your phone, a few beauty essentials and credit cards, the Bianca Pouch can be carried four ways - crossbody, long shoulder, wristlet or hand held. The removable chain strap adds versatility while the inside zippered pocket adds secured functionality. The subtle and supple nature of the pebbled buttery soft leather speaks volume of your sensibility and style. For even more minimalistic needs, consider the Paige or Sofia.
At just the right mixture of elegance and practicality in women’s leather backpacks is the Mia. Whether on campus, in a boardroom or on a cruise ship, the Mia transcends age and is a timeless piece. It doesn't look too big but it fits a lot. Grab the top handle or position the shoulder straps depending on if your preference is hands-free or hand-held while shopping, hiking, or commuting.
Keep in mind that your purse becomes a signature to your style over time. It has to be durable and versatile to weather the seasons, to accessorize your looks in multiple settings and all the while being practical enough to tote items that need to be within arm's reach at a moment notice. You may not want to think of your handbag as an investment piece. However, if you end up with a piece that never becomes outdated and can withstand being used for multiple occasions over many years, you'll possibly hand it down as an heirloom to a cherished one.
So, pick a style that you love and don't fret if it costs a little more. It's been our experience that you are more likely to remember the price of something that proved worthless. For your treasured items, you'll remember the many smiles, the many compliments and all the times it served you well. To protect your investment, don't forget routine and preventative maintenance habits such as periodically applying conditioner or hanging your bag from the table in a restaurant or outdoor setting. We believe you'll love your selection, but if not, we do offer a 30-day return option for unused items in original condition.
