I usually stick to better-end designer handbags because I so enjoy the legacy of the brand and the quality craftsmanship that goes into them. But about once a year I purchase a non-designer bag just for fun from stores like Zara, Club Monaco or little boutiques we stumble across on our travels. 

The quality of Zara handbags and footwear is good. In fact, quite a step up from the quality of their clothing, which is inconsistent. So I’m ending off the week with a fun bag assortment. I own one of these bags and I’ve seen some of the others in person. The patterned styles are excellent pattern mixing tools and most of the styles come with a strap. 

I really like the design integrity of the items at Zara, which is a lot more affordable than designer merchandise. While their clothing can be hit or miss, their bags are always great.
