3 Things to Look Out For When Purchasing Your Designer Handbag

You finally have enough money to buy that designer handbag that you have been longingly looking at through the glass windows as you pass through designer stores. The bag you have been drooling over as you peruse through online stores is finally going to be yours. The excitement of it all might overwhelm you to a point where you end up making a wrong decision and not getting the full value for your money.


This is precisely why you need to consider the 3 factors below before you make your purchase!


The Store- Is it a legit designer handbag retailer?


Not every store that claims to stock designer bags actually stocks them. Some stores could stock a few designer bags and a whole lot of knock-offs for profits. Before settling on a specific store for your designer handbag purchase, do your research. See what previous buyers are saying about the various stores that you are considering.


Most designers also list the specific stores that stock their merchandise. This will help you go to a reputable store where you are guaranteed of getting an original designer handbag.


The Cost- What is your budget?


Just because you are buying designer does not mean that you need to break the bank. Compare designers and their costs to find something that is within your budget. A lot of fashion enthusiasts will tell you that you do not need to be a millionaire to look like a million bucks.  

All you need is good taste and a few statement pieces in your wardrobe. In this case, your handbag should be the statement piece, though it does not have to cost you an arm and a leg.


The Season- Is it current?


Every season has a type of handbag that goes with it. Designers know this. This is why they have different types and sizes of handbags for their runway shows during different seasons. It is definitely a bonus to get a bag that you can carry during spring and still be able to use it over winter. Read style magazines and visit fashion sites to see what is trending for the season before making your purchase.


Imagine buying something that made headlines on the 2017 spring runway while you could add a few dollars and buy what made news this season. The trick is to do extensive research before making the decision to buy. The color of your designer handbag should also resonate with the season during which you intend to use it.


You may be wondering: “why should I trust you?” Well, you don’t have to trust me but you should learn from my mistakes! I have purchased a designer handbag before. I regretted my decision the moment I got the bag home. This is because my mind was stuck with one specific designer and one specific retail store. I did not take my time to do research and work with a budget. I just bought the bag for the sake of owning a designer handbag and not for the function that the bag would serve.

At the end of the day, you need to ensure that you buy something that appeals to you. The above tips will help you make the right decision so that you do not spend money and end up storing the bag at the furthest corner of your closet or giving it away without having used it at all.
