A Tailored Workbag
Handbag shopping isn’t all play, sometimes it’s all business. You need a bag to accompany you on those important job interviews and business meetings and the perfect workbag is understated, yet classy and tailored and will match your work outfits. It should also be roomy enough to carry your portfolio, business files, laptop, and other work essentials.

A Statement Bag
Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak. That’s exactly why you need a statement bag in your closet! Whether it’s a brightly colored bag to make your outfit pop or an eccentric bag in a fun shape, this statement should reflect your overall personality and tell the world exactly who you are.

A Roomy Tote
Some days (especially if you are a mom) it may seem like you have an impossible number of things to do and places to be, and those are the days when you need a big tote by your side. This is the bag you can reach for when you need to bring your laptop, a change of shoes, a makeup stash, and the latest beach read—you may end up lugging around 20 pounds worth of stuff, but at least you’ll look good while doing it. A BONUS you will be working those arms out carrying all that weight around with you.

A Cute Cross-Body
Last but not least, every lady needs a cross-body bag for hands-on situations. When you have a cross-body bag, your hands will be free to pick through fruit at the farmers market, sort through the sale rack at your favorite store, or take pictures while you’re exploring a new city.
