Hello beautiful people! I’m back with a new blog post, and not only that, but a new SERIES! I’m so excited to be getting back into content creating an extra lot this semester so stay tuned. This series is called ‘Closet Staples’ and I’m going to be featuring real products I use (and have used) consistently for long periods of time, that are also affordable and functional. I’m going to talk first about why its so important that you have one of these staple items, and then I’ll show you the product I use, as well as some save and splurge items, or some more trendy ones! These products are hand picked by me because they are actual favorites of mine! I can’t stress that part enough – I would never write about a product I didn’t believe in or a product I didn’t think fit my personal brand or one I have never even used.
My bag is from one of my favorite places to shop – the Nordstrom BP department! The prices for the quality and trend level you receive is unmatchable. Thats why I knew when purchasing this bag that I wouldn’t really be compromising much by not buying a super expensive version of the same thing. I love it because 1. It’s reversible and 2. It comes with the cutest matching pouch! Definitely a very smart spend if you’re in the market for a leather tote (which btw you should be).
The bag I was going to get before I realized I was broke and there was a dupe – lol. But in all seriousness this is the true staple bag that so many people have and love. I trust Madewell as a brand so much and know that if you want to buy this bag you will love it! And if not? Well thats why I included so many other options 🙂
This bag is also from my favorite place ever – Nordstrom BP! It is a little bit of a different version than my bag is but it is a LOT cheaper! And I can guarantee, based on consistency in quality at Nordstrom, that it will still be a great bag. If you want to hop on the trend, but don’t want to spend all of your savings, this bag is the perfect mini investment.
Thanks For Reading!
