One universal truth is that the bigger the handbag you buy, the more you will find that you absolutely have to have in it.
I remember in the late 90s (yes, that shows my age) going on a night out with nothing more than a purse that held my money and a lipstick. These days, that list has expanded somewhat. Phone, purse, lipstick, eyeliner, concealer, pressed powder, face brush, mini brush... Ah, to have my 1990s face complexion!
When it comes to handbags for work however, my tastes have never changed. I need something that will go with every outfit (a different coloured dress every day could pose a challenge), something to hold the never ending list of things I absolutely need (read not really) to take with me, something that is aesthetically pleasing and timeless.
I am currently looking for an new work handbag so thought that I would show you some the bags currently in contention.
You really cannot go wrong with a black crocodile skin (fake obviously!) handbag. This is the first handbag I spotted on my search and is high on the list of contenders/
|Carvela Winged Tote Bag £49.00|
|John Lewis £33.00|
Vivienne Westwood £400.00
Ok, ok, I admit it. This bag is not in contention. I cannot afford a £400 bag for work. But I LOVE it. I adore everything Vivienne Westwood and I have a major style crash for this bag. Sadly, it is not meant to be, but at least I can look at the picture. Sob!
Going through all of the above, I think that the Asos bag is my best bet. What do you think?
