I am feeling like it’s been long overdue to step up my handbag game. But I find it very hard to choose purses - I’m not really sure what my style in bags is. I’ve made some expensive mistakes in this area and I’d like to avoid that.
My favorites are getting a bit beat up, probably because I have so few purses and they get used hard - and the quality was so-so in the first place. I’d like to build a slightly bigger collection, with good quality.

I was wondering if you’d all be willing to tell me about your favorite everyday handbags - brands, sizes, why they work for you and your style and life, and why they are your favorites?
