I have the terrible habit of buying cheap-ish bags, using them until they are ugly, and then taking a hundred years to commit to a new one. I do not recommend this.
Instead, I think you would be so happy to have a few beautiful, high-quality purses. That way you can rotate, and none of them ever get too trashed. :) The trick is to not go tooooooo trendy, but if you are keeping your costs down, you can afford to get an "it-bag" every season while keeping a rotation of classic pieces as well.
I found this one on Etsy, and I love it:
Find it here.
I think it is so pretty - and the seller says it can be used 4 ways! Gotta love versatility.
Tell me: do you love it? How do you choose/organize your handbag collection?
