Handbags 101

In celebration of the release of Rue La La's Style Guide for Handbags, I am going to share two of my current go-to bags & what's inside of them. If there is one thing my followers know, it's that I am a true handbag & heel fanatic (in fact, this past weekend I purchased 3 new pairs of shoes... problem? I think not!)

Another fact many of you know about myself is that I am a diehard Michael Kors girl. MK is the one brand that speaks to me. Not to say I don't love others - DVF is definitely a close second - but truth be told, most of the handbags I own are Michael, so I figured I'd honor my love for all things MK in order to help introduce Rue La La's Premier Handbag Style Guide! The first bag I'd like to introduce is the MK Miranda.
Miranda has truly become one of my favorite handbags. It is the most expensive bag I own & the soft buttery leather is really to die for. Living in NYC honestly forces us women to carry a tote bag on a daily basis. I need to have everything I could possibly need at my fingertips, as most days I won't see my apartment for 12 hours at a time; working full-time & running around the city to attend blogger events or catch up with friends over dinner & drinks. 
In my everyday tote you can find: NYX lipsticks in Baby Pink & Fortune Cookie (hehe) , MAC lipstick in Saint Germain, my business cards, Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume rollerball, Victoria Secret travel size scents & Clean perfume sample, CoverGirl foundation, MAC Hello Kitty gloss, Compact Mirror, M by Staples notepad (the best notepad you'll ever use! Trust me), Salvatore Ferragamo lotion, Skull Candy earbuds, Wallet & I also carry my Cannon Camera, iPhone & Shout Wipes (not shown in photo).
This Michael Kors Studded Selma Clutch (now on sale!) is really one of my best purchases. It's not only great for New York City nightlife but it's a great wallet! It has 8 card slots & an open pocket inside (where I somehow manage to fit all my lipsticks...) Being that this is the smallest bag I carry, it fits perfectly in each & every single one of my handbags. This way when it's time to go out, I simply grab this little studded baby & run out the door! It's an older purchase that has unfortunately been discontinued, but I highly recommend all my fellow tote-gals to check out the link provided or hunt one down on ebay -- it is totally worth it, as you'll not only have a new clutch but a new wallet as well. Woot Woot!
As always, thank you for reading this post. Don't forget to check out the Style Guide on Rue La La. It's so interesting to read about the different types of bags, famous designer signatures & it even has helpful tips on how to clean & treat your purses! And incase any of you are wondering, my next bag purchase is going to be this DVF leather clutch. It's so fun yet sophisticated & I can't help but fall in love with the lip detail every single time!

What is your favorite bag or bag go-to? I'd love to hear!
