3 Bags Worth the Investment

The Weekender, the Clutch, and the Everyday Tote

I have a bunch of handbags but really rely on only a few. If you are cleaning out your closet space and letting go of bags that have seen their better years, you will want to replace them with one or all three of the following bags.

A weekend bag is important for the obvious reason: to take with you on a weekend getaway. Buy one that has a strong bottom to hold everything you decide to pack. If you don't feel like you can fit everything in your weekender, this bag also makes a good one to use as a carry on for flights. Pack an overnight pair of clothes, toiletries and other essentials in your weekender for long flights just in case the rest of your luggage is delayed.

A clutch is important to take with you anywhere. You want one big enough to hold your ID, credit card, phone and lip gloss. I've been using one of my favorite makeup bags as a "clutch" lately and just transfer it from bag to bag. However, a stylish clutch to dress up any outfit is the way to go when selecting your next one.

Finally, every gal should have a big ol' tote. If you're anything like me, then you have tons of stuff you carry with you day in and day out. You want a tote that can stand the test of time and still look polished no matter what you decide to cram into it. I personally like the multi-strap bag so that I can carry it as a tote or sling it over my shoulder if necessary.

Bags are definitely an investment, but it doesn't mean you have to overspend to get a really great style. Make sure it's made of durable fabric and of a classic color (one that will go with the majority of your wardrobe). Visit TJ Maxx or Nordstrom Rack for fancy bags at more affordable prices.

Go in knowing that you will be spending a bit more on a bag because hopefully it's one you'll be using almost every day. A good investment is one that will up to its value over a longer period of time. What do you look for in a bag?
