So you want to start a designer handbag collection? But where to begin? What is the best investment? Obviously if this is your first designer pick you don't want to go full tilt with buying a Louis Vuitton or Chanel, yet you also want to step up from what's available at Target.
The best way to get started in buying designer handbags is to find a fantastic designer that makes a bag that's not only trendy, but sturdy. You want this to last and contrary to popular belief buying designer doesn't necessarily mean your bag will hold up. One of my absolute favorite handbag designers is Rebecca Minkoff. Her designs are always on trend, the bags are made well and they usually sport similarities to other handbags that most of the population desires but can't easily afford to purchase.
Here are some of my current favorites from Rebecca Minkoff:
1. Micro Regan Satchel $225 // 2. Mini Perry Satchel $395 // 3. Quilted Mini Affair Bag $195 // 4. Micro Avery Tote $195 // 5. Suede Love Cross Body Bag $295 // 6. Isobel Hobo $295 // 7. Sofia Box Cross Body Bag $245 // 8. MAC Saddle Bag $195
Now that we have the designer how else can you save money? Shop.the.sales. My favorite website to buy Rebecca Minkoff from is Shopbop. Not only is there a wide selection of items like handbags, accessories and clothing from Rebecca Minkoff (and other brands) but they usually always have at least one or two marked on sale and, like RIGHT NOW, they'll have extra sales where you can save even more money!
