Now that I’m in the “real world”, I’ve noticed that I’m a lot more into purses. Not to say that I wasn’t into purses before that (because I was), but I think I’ve grown more appreciate of nice bags that will last for years to come. Basically, I’m a girl who wants a closet full of designer handbags. Is this realistic? No. But now that I’m out of college and making money, I’m willing to shell out some money for a well-made, professional bag. Proof: I bought this Rebecca Minkoff tote for work, and have used it everyday since. Sure, designer bags are pretty, but a lot of times they’re also constructed well and can last a lifetime if you take good care of them. This has been and will continue to be my justification for why I support a nice handbag. Below are just a few (of the many) that have recently caught my eye (and are threatening to take my next commission). Stay strong, Olivia. Stay strong.
