After a month of big spending January is hardly the appropriate time to start thinking about new season handbags. We should at least wait until February, when our bank balances have recovered a bit, right? Well, that would be the sensible option. But there are so many gorgeous bags in stores at the moment, and it’s become impossible to ignore them.
So instead, let’s give them the attention they deserve. It doesn’t cost anything to just look and admire. And if you do find a design that you truly can’t live without at least you have something to save up for and look forward too. Let me know which of the above styles are your favourites..
(I also threw two high street handbags into the edit, because it’s cruel to dangle a pastel pink Balenciaga City Tote around when everyone – myself included – is trying to have a thrifty month.)
