I am personally not a big handbag person.
Maybe I have become a little immune as I’m dealing with so many expensive bags all day long on my shop Reloved Again. I have seen all the top brands up close and nothing really blows me away and the price depreciation on new bags is frightening.
Practicality, quality material and a modern fresh shape is probably more important to me now, and can add a lift to any outfit. This season I have bought a super soft Gu_De bag which I use just about every day. It is big enough to fit everything in that I need, it’s light, the leather is exquisite and I paid just over £100 for it in the sale. If I do bore of it I’m sure that I could sell it for more or less the same figure, and not lose any cash.
I am seeing more and more soft, midi size bags that can be worn close to the body, driven by our daily walks! I love how Monki wears her one from the Row. I actually think that The Row is expensive and there are a lot more well priced alternatives.
However, at over £2k these designer options are out of my price range, and if I was ever going to spend that money, it would be on a more classic shape. Therefore, looking at the well priced options below, giving a nod to the trend, which will keep your look up to date without spending too much.
