10+ Adorable Handbags To Suit Any Occasion

5 min read

You are either a handbag gal – or a shoe gal – one or the other

But regardless of which camp you fall into – you will still need at least ONE really good handbag that you can take to work, to a job interview, on a date or to a wedding.

Real Story: I found out just how important a decent handbag was the hard way last year.

Eight years ago I was gifted a Crocs Handbag. It was really a beach bag with a hard plastic bottom that I loved because you could put it down in a public shitter or in a puddle and it didn’t make the contents of my bag all wet. It was bright pink and blue and I truly loved that bag. But it had gotten a pounding over the years and was a bit stained and gross and over-used.

Exactly the same as my old Crocs bag except the colour…. I loved that bag…

But I’m a shoe girl – I didn’t care! The bag held everything I wanted. It was so practical!

Until a workmate (Krystal this is you) told me that my beautiful old Crocs bag was gross and that no, I couldn’t take it on a work trip to Melbourne or to drinks with a client at the Opera Bar because it was feral. It didn’t go with any outfit and made me look like I just didn’t care about potential clients I was meeting with. Which was never the case.

So my old Crocs bag had to be retired, and I purchased a beautiful Navy Polkadot bag that looks great with all my outfits.

So a decent handbag is a must. But you don’t have to spend a bomb – you can still get a really stylish handbag to suit all outfits for under $100. Because we have shoes to buy!
