The way to my heart is through three things: food, coffee and a gorgeous handbag.

But as the third category is a large expense, a lot of the time it means I have to save up my pennies to get something that I can call an ‘investment’.

Handbags are the ultimate accessory for me and really complete an outfit, I feel like the perfect bag creates the perfect outfit for a number of different looks.

Not sure what I mean? Allow me to explain, if you have invested in a classic, leather, black handbag that can be used everyday; it’s likely that this bag will be the item that completes your outfit during the week, it will be the one constant in your outfits.

On weekends you might like to mix it up, and use something a little smaller with a pop of colour to give your outfits the finish they need.

Below are my top 5 investment bags, in no particular order. Investment bags meaning they don’t come cheap (and trust me ladies, you don’t want to compromise on quality with a replica), but also that you will get a lot of wear out of them!

  1.  Prada Saffiano Lux Tote 
  2. Chanel Large Classic Flap Bag
  3.  Givenchy Antigona 
  4. Saint Laurent Cabas Chyc 
  5. Chloe Paraty 

All these beautiful bags are black, which means they will go with absolutely anything! Now don’t max out your credit cards on these bad boys, save up and you will feel like a boss when you purchase yours!
