Oh gosh, how I love handbags! ;)
They give an outfit a whole different look and add an extra of style.
Actually, I prefer leather handbags. Our climate here in Germany tends to be chilly, rainy an cold for many days of the year, so I always need something that is water proof. Leather bags are so charming and I love if they do have a lived in look and a bid of patina.
When I used to be a student, I mainly bought vintage bags via ebay. The reason is quite simple: They are as cheap as these ugly
The most amazing bag I own might be the one from Three Arrows Leather. Love the softness of the leather and the hand made details, the arrow details and the braided strap are incredible! Same goes for this pink Antik Batik beauty. The Kelim bag pack from a Moroccan store in Barca and the incredible pompom bag from Porto are my fave bags for summer.
I really can recommend investing in good quality leather or in vintage handbags. They will last forever and they get more beautiful with any year to come!
