You simply cannot go wrong with a basic black handbag. They are versatile, they go with just about anything, work any season, and they make the perfect staple for a well-rounded handbag collection. Not sure where to start? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered there too! Check out these lovely pieces I have been eying recently.


A simple tote is the perfect bag for everyday. It’s big enough to hold all of your essentials and more. Even comes with an extra pouch! I love this particular tote because it has nice, subtle details that set it apart for other similar pieces. The perfect bag either to the office or using as a weekend tote!

The Botkier Bowery Bag retails for $173 (orig $246)
