Christmas, 2001: the year I got my first designer handbag, my mom told me, “you can be dressed in a a white t-shirt and jeans, but if you add a fabulous bag, you’ll look like a million bucks.” Little did she know, I’d be repeating that mantra well into my twenties. A great bag should be durable, versatile and practical; housing all of your essential items.
They say you should never ask a woman her age or what’s in her bag, but Rue La La and I are breaking the rules to show you what I’m working with. For me, the satchel is the perfect bag: roomy enough for all of my necessities, light enough for every day use. Check out what’s inside below (no judging) and Rue’s style guide for handbags.
