I feel a new series coming on... There are many items I feel that I now need to build up a versatile wardrobe full of staple items. Currently, I am on the lookout for a new purse. My current purse is this striped monochrome one from River Island:
I purchased this last Spring to go along with a striped monochrome bag that I bought from Next. Said bag was sold on eBay quite some time ago now - I have a high handbag turnover! I would like to build up a small handbag collection where I can alternate them regularly and not buy and sell them so often, but that's a whole other blog post!
Before my current purse, I had a black leather River Island one which went with everything - why did I sell it?! It was a good few years old and at the time I wanted a new one.
Now I'd like to buy one (or two!) neutral, go-with-everything purse and one statement purse.
I love the red with the snakeskin print and the clip top fastening is cute. Although not as versatile as a neutral-coloured one, this will still go well with lots of bags. River Island seem to do purses so well!
I've also got my eye on this gorgeous leopard print one:
This is a really simple design but the more I look at it, the more I love it! The shade is a bronze chocolate-brown which is a great in between alternative to a black or tan purse. It's a really sleek, classic and stylish design and I love the metal plaque on the front. I wish I could see an image of the inside to see how the compartments are laid out! This is a main contender.
What do you think of my choices? Which statement and staple purse would you choose?
