There was a time when I would buy a beautiful handbag and use a scuffy old purse. When I say scruffy, I mean dogearred and disgusting. Not cool! I figured who saw my purse anyway?! What an error! I get my purse out 20 times a day, everywhere from the Sainsburys to Selfridges, and everyone was seeing my beautiful handbag and my disgusting wallet they came out of it.
Eventually, I went to Vivienne Westwood and bought myself a beautiful leather purse. It had all the functions I needed and it was beautiful soft leather on the inside and hardened leather on the outside. Everytime I got it out my bag I was so proud of it and it was such a pleasure to use.
I think it’s important to have a good purse or wallet, as it is something you use every day. It needs to be functional, hardwearing and you have to love it. I actually get way more use out of any of my purses compared to my handbags as I rarely swap them around, where as I swap my bags every day.
I put together some really cute purses from Shopbop, all by great designer brands. They have different sizes, prices and functions, depending on what fits in best to your lifestyle (and handbag!). I picked out one for each colour of the rainbow, if your wallet needs renewing, these are all great options!
The only thing left to decide, is which is your favourite?
