Smaller bags and simpler bags typically cost lesser. Go for camera bags or a simple tote bag to get started. They are useful so you will definitely get your money’s worth.

Baby Steps

It is actually acceptable for you to just buy a trendy piece. These are usually cheaper than those unique and classic pieces which you can just purchase later on. Trendy items will keep you updated on the current trends and they are significantly more affordable. It is okay if the said bag will only be popular for two to three seasons. If it makes you happy, you should go for it.

Practicality Is Very Important

There are so many designer items in the market and not all of them are created equally. Some are crafted to be used for very special occasions only. Others are created for daily use. Their price tags also reflect such characteristics.

You must thoroughly research the market and find something that you can actually use. It is very impractical to go for a purse that is so pricey or too small to hold your essentials that you end up just displaying it on your shelf. If you want to get yourself a good designer piece that you can actually use on a regular basis, try something in the affordable range so that you won’t be too intimidated to use it. You can also go for something that actually fits your needs. Are the straps comfortable? Is there enough space to house your essentials? Is the color of the bag versatile enough to be paired with your wardrobe?
