Many people outspokenly condemn "It" bags. That's because trendy bags have a very short arm life. Don't get me wrong, designer purses have their place — I'm guilty of owning a few myself — but there's nothing better than paying a hefty price for a bag and being able to use it for a lifetime.
This Mayle Jeanne Bag, $495, grabbed my attention for that reason. Not only is it the perfect size, it's also worth the money because it's simple and unfussy. The gold chain strap adds a bit of flair and the subtle patchwork leather is unique. It comes in black, iris, lilac grey and nude (pictured).
Can't you just see yourself carrying it today, tomorrow and for years to come?
