Top 50 Bloggers’ Choice: #2 – The Leather Bag

Everyone needs one sturdy, statement, stand out bag that speaks for itself in their closet. Even though bigger totes appeal to me more, a reasonably mini-sized tote will do just fine. Getting a really good quality statement leather bag is admittedly very pricey but here a few reasons why you will not regret your purchase:

-A good buy will go a long way. If it is original leather, it will last you for years. So choose the right one in a colour that you’re sure you won’t tire of in the near future. 

-Leather bags are an investment piece. Even if you do get tired of your one or you’re the kind of person who loves to update their closet every month, you can always resell them for a good bargain and replace them with yet another.

-We will forgive you if you rock them over and over again. Even celebs carry their statement bags EVERYDAY. think Rihanna and Kim Kardashian with their Celine totes. 

-They complement and add taste to even the simplest of looks. 

If you don’t have a statement bag, don’t kill yourself. It takes time. Hell, I don’t even have my dream one yet. (Alexander Wang rockie bag I’m looking at you). But if at all you’re looking to get one, these are some of the most popular ones right now.

I’m showing off my sturdy leather bag from Autograph at Marks & Spencer here.
Autograph, Edina Ronay and Ebay.

    While the leather bag is a favorite accessory for everyone, it’s important that the quality of the leather is well maintained for long term use. By taking proper care, you will not only extend the lifespan of the bag but will also keep it looking beautiful and striking forever.
