One of my many goals for the new year, including daily meditation, screen-free Saturday, eating clean, etc., is to be a more conscious consumer. This means buying fewer, but better, things from brands I love. One of my favorite big-ticket items to invest in is a bag - the reason being that a high-quality bag really lasts and can be worn for multiple seasons. Luxury accessories quickly elevate the look of basics (insert favorite jeans and T-shirts here!). Not to mention, a good bag continues to hold value, so if you do decide to resell, you'll always have that option. Even still, deciding to make a big purchase can be intimidating. One way to ensure that you pick the right bag is to avoid anything overly trendy. Designers are bringing back iconic shapes from the past decade that have proven lasting power, as well as a few new shapes that are worthy of your permanent collection. If you're in the market for a new high-end luxury handbag, these are definitely worth the splurge.
