I was surfing ebags.com and I found this great Rampage bag. It’s $88 and is reasonably priced, but if you are looking for a summer bag that might just be too much.


Here is an alternative that is only $16.99 at Target.

Must Have Items: A Great Bag

2 Apr

I know……..Of course I decided to write about great bags first. I love hangbags! I think a great handbag can make or break an outfit. Just think, you a wearing your favorite outfit that makes you feel fabulous, but your handbag is ratty or doesn’t match. I see this often when shopping or running errands. I see a woman with a terrific outfit with a horrible handbag.

Nina Garcia notes in her book “Little Black Book of Style,” that every woman should have 3 staple handbags. First, a great tote. I love totes because you can always fit so much stuff in them. If you are running errands on Saturday a tote is the perfect bag to take.

For splurges I love Michael by Michael Kors ($298) and Coach ($658).
