Investment Piece #1- Handbag

Spending hundreds of pounds on every T-shirt is not only not within my budget but in my opinion – waste of money. My wardrobe strategy- few good quality expensive statement pieces and a lot of simple & not too pricey basics.

One of the investment pieces every woman should have – handbag. Choose classic over trendy. You will want to look for something that is simple and not too bright. You are most likely going to want this handbag to go with your work outfits as well as well as something more colorful and bright on your nights out with friends at the bar.

My choice- Céline Luggage Tote. Beautiful palmetto calf leather is very durable and seems to keep the shape very well ( after all, I had this bag for almost 4 years now and it still looks like new).

I love this bag not only because it makes every outfit look beautiful and put together, but it also fits everything I need to carry around.On a weekday- makeup bag, lunchbox and a big notepad, on the weekend- camera, few lenses and sometimes even some shopping.

It is important to mention that there is no need to spend thousands of pounds on your investment piece handbag. You can find beautiful good quality bags starting from 250-300 at smaller designer stores- Michael Kors, Ted Baker & Coach.
