Handbag Heaven

I love handbags that have an extra across the body strap because I use it so often, especially while shopping. I was browsing People.com the other day and came across this picture of Reese Witherspoon and fell in love with her clutch.

It is a Rebecca Minkoff Morning After clutch and I love it to pieces! I went to the Rebecca Minkoff website and it looks like it comes in black or purple with gold hardware.

I also love handbags with hardware (the clutch above scored double points). So when I saw this bag earlier on in the year I fell in love with it, but not the price. Its the Alexander Wang Coco Mini Duffel.

I tend to purchase black handbags 95% of the time because I can wear them with almost anything. And I feel that if I am going to spend a pretty penny on a handbag I better be able to wear it almost everyday. I do have a gray purse that I got as a bday present from a good friend and that goes with pretty much everything too. But you won't see me buying an expensive handbag in pink, green, or purple just because I would find it too hard to wear it on a daily basis.

What do you look for when purchasing a handbag?

I love that Alexander Wang bag! I always look for size first, then style (i.e. tote, hobo), and then color! Great post XOXO

I love ALL of these bangs, but I must say I would do anything to get my hands on that Wang duffel!
