Handbags are probably our biggest weakness. If it was (financially) possible, we would be investing in new bags constantly. We can’t be the only ones that feel that way?! But, since that is not the case, we take a long time to decide on a bag before taking the plunge. They can be a rather big investment! A few things we think about are: 1) wearability- does it go with 75% of our closet? 2) durability- will I be able to wear this bag without having to worry about a scratch, etc? 3) lifetime of the bag- will this color/shape/size be out of style next year? All that to say, we do occasionally break some our our own rules!
After taking all that into consideration, we decide whether to invest or not. One of our new favorite places to shop for all things designer is Luisaviaroma.com. LVR.com offers all the latest styles by the top designers, free shipping & free returns. There is no limit to what you can find on this site! Their handbag collection is amazing. We’ve been big fans of Chloé handbags for awhile and have had our eye on the small Marcie crossbody bag. The size of this bag is perfect for a crossbody bag, meaning you can actually fit more than just an iPhone, lipstick and keys inside! The hard part was choosing a color. It comes in black, red and cognac. We decided on cognac because it is a color that can easily transition into fall/winter and is a great neutral, too.
PS: With our temps now nearing 100 degrees, this midi dress has been a great addition to the wardrobe. It’s light and flowy, super comfortable in the heat. At $68, we wish it came in other colors to wear for the rest of the summer! Oh, and don’t forget to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! See our favorites here, here & here.
