When it comes to fashion, a lady can never have too many handbags. They are the ones that she carries her keys, lipstick, and wallet in, and they have the power to make or destroy an ensemble. When purchasing a new handbag, keep the following in mind for optimal results:
1. The Function of the Sack
When looking to get a new handbag, the first thing you should consider is the purpose for which you will put the bag to use. If you have a habit of dropping items without thinking, the most convenient kind of bag for you would be one that you can wear across your body so you don’t have to carry it in your hand or over your shoulder. Or, it’s possible that you are a student looking for a bag to carry your notebooks that is both stylish and durable, such as a messenger bag. A very compact purse that can only store your phone, credit cards, and vehicle keys is an alternative for those who adhere to the minimalist lifestyle. Those who have children, and particularly infants, should definitely opt for a larger bag or a diaper bag rather than a purse.
If you have a habit of using the same bag each day for an extended period of time, you should give some thought to making an investment in a well-made handcrafted bag, leather bag, or designer bag since it will need to be of high quality to endure for an extended period of time. If you have a history of buying new purses whenever there is a shift in fashion or if you quickly get bored with familiar items, it is usually a good idea not to spend too much money on your next handbag purchase if you plan on making the purchase in the near future.
2. Body Type
When shopping for a new handbag, you should also take into consideration your body type. This is an important factor to consider. The phrase “hobo bag” is often used to refer to this kind of bag; nevertheless, if you are tall and slim, a medium-sized slouchy bag will look fine with your frame. When it comes to smaller sizes, choosing a bag that is also smaller is ideal so that the bag does not seem to be too large for your frame. In addition, you should avoid wearing lengthy straps since they will just make you seem to be smaller. If you are plus-sized, you may want to try balancing out your curves with a structured or boxy purse.
Your financial plan is the third consideration that needs your attention. Do you plan to buy a handcrafted bag, one made of leather, or one designed by a famous designer? If this is the case, you should be prepared to pay a minimum of two hundred dollars and often more than that for a bag of decent quality. If you are working with a limited budget, you might want to think about going to stores like T.J. Maxx or Nordstrom Rack, or even a used clothing store, where bags might be on sale in order to find decent bags at reasonable prices. If you want to make a purchase from a regular retailer, you also have the option of waiting for Christmas deals. If you want a designer handbag but can’t quite afford the steep price, you might want to try bidding for a bag on eBay. There, you might be able to get one that is only slightly used for a price that is significantly lower than the retail price. Etsy is another another marketplace where one may look for handcrafted handbags.
