Fun fact: I love bags. While I typically stick to a more basic clothing uniform in my day-to-day (usually a black sweater, jeans, a leather jacket, and sneakers), I like to bring it with my bag selection to make my outfits feel that much more special. And to be honest, the silhouettes I covet run the gamut, including everything from affordable trendy picks to investment designer buys. Given my adoration for bags, I’m always down to chat about the latest in handbags at, well, any moment in the day. I’m not alone in that, either. My friend Amber Richele, a San Francisco–based visual merchandiser and CEO and designer of her own namesake label, is also on my level. In fact, Richele adores her bags so much that she gives them nicknames (which I may start doing).
Yep, if you were to look at our DMs (some shared above, actually), I’d say about 95% of our chats are about bags—either styles that we both recently bought, what we’re loving, or the silhouettes we’re saving up for. So on that note, I thought it could be fun to share with you a list of the investment bags both Richele and I are feeling at the moment.
Below, you’ll first uncover the bags Richele has invested in that have strong cost per wear, if you’re looking to invest in something. After that, I’m sharing more silhouettes I’m into as well. With all that in mind, keep scrolling for a bit of fun handbag inspo.
