Today I am switching it up and not doing an outfit post. Instead, I thought I would share with you what I am currently drooling over: Diane Von Furstenberg's handbags. Known for her unique and ravishing clothing, DVF has hit it out of the park again with her new spring collection of handbags. I took some time to pick out my favorites from her new collection- eyeing a couple to purchase soon. If you know me, you know I am such a sucker for a handbag- they are my vice. I cannot stop myself from expanding my collection. I own bags made by a very wide range of designers from Fendi to Forever21- extremely cheap or expensive, I don't discriminate! What I MUST have this season is one of these amazing bags.

I thought I'd give a few pointers for you to remember when making that hard decision of: "Do I really need this bag?" 
I'm all for a cheap and fabulous bag, don't get me wrong, but I must suggest everyone invest in at least one well made (and maybe expensive) bag. If it is tough for you to splurge on handbags, I suggest spending time researching a classic bag. Classic bags are those who won't ever go out of style- a good investment. I have a few trusty classics that have carried me through many years. On the other hand, don't go making mindless bag purchases either! The biggest mistake you can make is buying tons of cheap bags that you don't really love, blowing almost the exact price of the designer purse you fell in love with in the window of Barneys. Fellow fashionistas: those little purchases ADD UP! Trust me from experience. It is much better to save that money from the "okay, its kind of cute, but its so cheap!" bags. Never buy something just because it's cheap. My rule is: if you wouldn't have even eyed it if it wasn't on sale/really cheap, DON'T BUY IT!

Have a fashionable day :)
