When it comes to choosing a new handbag, I like to take my time and make sure I really love it before I make the final purchase. Yes, I've finally learned they're not something you want to buy on a whim (I wish I had that same control with shoes!). Because I only change purses every few seasons, I'm ok with spending a little more moola on them– especially if the bag is well made! The two things I look for when purchasing a new handbag is comfort and size.
I like to stay away from big handbags because I usually try to fill it up with things I don't even need. (Like come on, my WHOLE makeup bag? Katelyn, no.) And the bigger the purse is, the more you stuff, and the more uncomfortable it is to carry. I think we all could agree on that, right? ;)
Kate Spade NY always has the perfect size handbags! Here are my three favorites from her new collection in black:
^Catherine Street Joanie $398
^Catherine Street Pippa $398
^Cobble Hill Dot Little Minka $358
