The Necessity of an Everyday Bag



My recent holiday to New York, and Los Angeles for my 21st birthday was basically a tour of every store that sold handbags!

As I’ve mentioned - probably repeatedly - I am an avid handbag collector. But the problem is, in Australia there is an eye-watering markup on designer goods. That’s why whenever I go to the US I stock up on handbags!

While I love my designer bags I wouldn’t bring them everyday but only when I am 99% sure that nothing bad will happen to them. Factors like poor weather conditions, rougher neighbourhoods, and the type of activities that would be undertaken make me keep my pricey handbag in it’s storage bag, and opt for a more affordable option.


Now that I’m back in Australia, I have been looking for a great brand to get some everyday pieces that are stylish, affordable, and are study to withstand the wear, and tear of daily life. Of course I turned to Colette by Colette Hayman!

Below are a few choices from their collections. Let me know in the comment section which ones are your favourite!
