The older I get, the more I understand the expression, “You get what you pay for.” When I was in my twenties, I always wanted new. New clothes, new shoes, new purses…I was putting trends before quality.
Now that I’ve wised up, I lean more towards quality rather than quantity. I would rather have a few, high-quality items than a ton of lower-quality pieces. And though I can cut corners with this philosophy in the clothing department (hello, thrifted Diane von Furstenberg silk dress!), when it comes to handbags, I have no problems splurging on myself.
I’ve got my eyes on a few Micheal Kors handbags over at Lyst.com. This chain cross-body bag and snakeskin messenger are on my “Mommy’s Wish List.” Both pieces are great quality, and I’ll really be able to get lots of use out of them. I mean, look at how versatile they are! Both can be worn with multiple outfits in multiple seasons…they’re just really great investment bags!
Christmas might have to come early for me this year…
