Choosing A Perfect Designer Handbag

Article by Angle Tingen

There are of course many different kinds of handbag on the market, and choosing the perfect designer handbag is rarely an easy or a quick decision. Finding the right bag, however, is vital to achieving the look you are aiming for, and the right purse can make virtually any outfit look great.

Every woman of course understands the value of a great designer handbag, and a purse is much more than just a safe place to stash money and other valuables. The right designer handbag is as much a fashion statement as any other part of the outfit, and a great designer bag has a lot to say about the taste, style and sophistication of the wearer.

Of course when it comes to shopping for the perfect designer handbags it is important to exercise plenty of caution. The very fact that designer handbags are enjoying such popularity has also meant an increase in the number of fakes, and popular and expensive name brands like Brighton, Coach, Fendi and XOXO are among the most frequently copied.

Buying one of these cheap designer knockoffs is far more than just a waste of money, and it is all too easy to get taken. The materials used in the manufacture of cheap designer copies are usually substandard, and that means that the purse you buy will not be able to stand up to repeated use. A genuine designer handbag, on the other hand, should be able to last for many years of use, and this can make the genuine article a far better value in the long run.

There are a number of important things to look for when it comes to buying a fine designer purse or handbag. One of the most important things to look at is the quality of the fine details. Looking at these small details can tell you a lot about the quality and workmanship that went into the manufacture of the purse, so it pays to look beyond the designer name on the front of the bag.

For instance, the stitching around the seams of the handbag can tell you a great deal about whether or not it is the genuine article. While a genuine product from a fine company like Fendi or Coach will be of obviously high quality, stitching that appears to be uneven or inferior is often the first sign of a fake product. Likewise, the interior detailing will be elegant and classic on a genuine designer purse, but it may appear shoddy on a knockoff. It pays to look at these details carefully in order to make sure you are truly getting the best product for your money.

After all, there are many different designers of handbags these days, and each designer bag will have its own unique set of features. It is important to choose a bag that is not only stunning and beautiful, but practical and affordable as well. There are designer purses and handbags perfect for virtually any taste and budget, ranging from bags that cost only about $100 to ones so expensive only the wealthiest can afford them. It is important to shop carefully and to make sure the bag you want suits your budget as well as your unique taste.

More shoe trends

I am really obsessed with shoes lately and another shoe trend that I have spotted (and it's been around for quite some time now) is nude colored shoes. Hillary Duff, Jessica Simpson and many others have been seen wearing them. And I simply love them. The best thing about nude colored shoes is that you can match them with virtually anything you want!
