It has come to my attention that I am in much need of a new handbag. Not just any old handbag; a designer handbag. Countless times throughout my life I have purchased bags from a variety of high street stores that are great when I first purchase them, but then after 3 months are either broken, out of style, or I've simply fallen out of love with them. With the money I have spent on all these bags, I think its safe (and sad) to say that I probably could of afforded to buy a designer piece instead; that is both timeless and durable.
For those of you like me that are struggling to find the right handbag, that you want to last, love and have for longer than 3 months; then check out my list below of designer handbags that you seriously need in your life.
