There are things to keep in mind when choosing your go-to bag. I have totes, clutches and everything in between. However, my current daily tote is losing some elasticity in the straps and may need to be replaced soon. Things I’ll be looking for in my new bag:

- Pockets. I need a least a few smaller pockets for my cell phone, Chapstick, keys and a few pens. There’s nothing worse than rummaging through your big bag endlessly because you can’t find the things you need.

- An all encompassing color. The bag needs to be able to “go” with much of my wardrobe. Black would be an obvious choice since that is the main color of my wardrobe, but my current tote is a bright blue and it has served me well. A standout color can still go with a lot of outfits; it’s just choosing the one for you. If I can’t find a black one, I might go with a bright yellow or maybe a gunmetal gray.

- Lots of room. I tote a lot of stuff around every day. Besides the essentials, I usually have a notepad, planner, magazine, sunglasses, small makeup bag, and the list goes on and on. One solution would be to downsize the stuff I carry around, but I might feel lost without it!

- Special added touch. One of my current bags has a cool rhinestone brooch on the front that takes the chocolate brown color from being drab to something glam. If I go with black, I will want it to have special straps or a textured front. Also, an element of style I am a fan of is a cute, small scarf. Visit your favorite vintage shop to find a unique, inexpensive one.

Every gal needs a good bag and what’s better than to start the new year with a new stylish one to keep things organized. What do you look for in a bag?

@GoodFaith I love the color! My mom bought me a chocolate brown bag last Christmas and she was so worried that she should've bought black. But moms know best, and her choice was the right one. :) This comment has been removed.

@vamp1967 I love your idea for your keys. Mine always sink to the bottom. I should find a fun clip to hook them to. This comment has been removed.

@vamp1967 I am a sucker for that soft, beautiful camel or brown leather tones-just looks elegant with everything. This comment has been removed.

I think your next bag should be this color. I think this rich color is sophisticated & will look nice with all your outfits. This comment has been removed.
