I can never turn down a great new bag, especially a leather one. I feel that everyone should invest and carry at least one bag that can be a strong staple in their wardrobe. Although I love playing with bright colors, I prefer them in different parts of an outfit instead of a purse. Personally, I always tend to stray in the direction of classic colors such as black and cognac. These splurge and steal worthy bag options are some of my favorite silhouettes this fall. The backpack is back in action this season, and it is a wildly comfortable idea at that! I also can't get enough of the classic tote and the variety of finishes. From perforated to embossed leathers, this is a great piece to add to your collection.
I did a photo shoot a while back with some of my purses and favorite shoes to pair with them. I don't think you need to always match shoes to bags, but it can really pull a look together.
