You simply cannot go wrong with a basic black handbag. They are versatile, they go with just about anything, work any season, and they make the perfect staple for a well-rounded handbag collection. Not sure where to start? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered there too! Check out these lovely pieces I have been eying recently.
Botkier Bowery Tote – Available Here
A simple tote is the perfect bag for everyday. It’s big enough to hold all of your essentials and more. Even comes with an extra pouch! I love this particular tote because it has nice, subtle details that set it apart for other similar pieces. The perfect bag either to the office or using as a weekend tote!
The Botkier Bowery Bag retails for $173 (orig $246)
Cambridge Satchel Company Poppy Bag – Available Here
When I think of the Cambridge Satchel Company, I think of the classic school satchels and not of their full handbag line. They have so much more to offer and this piece is an excellent example of that. I love the classic, retro-ish styling of the Poppy Bag. It’s a bag that you can carry for years to come. Although, the bag is made of smooth leather so initially my concern is how easily it would scratch. Regardless, still an awesome and roomy everyday essential.
The Cambridge Satchel Company Poppy Bag retails for $210
Rebecca Minkoff Isobel Hobo – Available Here
Rebecca Minkoff never fails to amaze me and the Isobel hobo style is no exception. I love the casual, body-hugging styling and of course the giant tassel detail.
The Rebecca Minkoff Isobel Hobo Bag retails for $295
Karen Walker Lana Camera Bag – Available Here
This is different! Karen Walker has a signature arrow that appears on many of her designs. I love this subtle detail that adds some extra interest to this otherwise simple camera bag style.
