How to curate your basic handbag collection?

Handbags! Handbags! Handbags!

Too many handbags never spoilt any girl!

Handbags can be your fashion accessory or need of the hour.

While there are so many different kinds of handbags to shop for, it gets difficult to keep up with the trend or serve the purpose of the bag. So, I have curated a basic handbag collection that will come in handy for each occasion. I have curated the collection from Victoria’s Secret brand. You can create such a collection from any other brands.

From card wallet to tote, bags come in all sizes and shapes. So, this collection is a range of the smallest wallet to the biggest handbag that could be useful for different occasions.

Card wallet:

A small portable, handy card wallet is something that you need to have if you are a card person. This is easy to carry in pocket or hand and is weightless. You can find a glittery one or a normal one that fits your needs.

Small purse:

A small purse that can fit your mobile, money, cosmetics etc. if you are out for a long time is something that you need to have in your collection. You can carry it for dinners, parties, and any formal or informal events.

The Bling purse:

That funky, glittery, bling purse that you carry to any traditional party or a club is something that you should be having. It adds edge to your outfit.

Also, make sure that the size of your bag is such that you can carry your mobile, lipstick, or even passport. If the bag comes with a sling to hang it on your shoulder, it’s the best! You can purchase a glittery bag in blacks, or gold or silver.

Beauty bag:

I hope everybody must be already having a kit like this. If not, make sure you add it to your collection. A small kit to carry all your cosmetics and is ready to travel with you anytime. You can buy such bags in transparent or opaque. Though transparent bags makes all the things visible in your bag; it might also change color in case you spill the cosmetics. So, the choice is yours to either have a transparent or an opaque one! I have been using a transparent one since even the smallest articles are visible in the kit.

NOTE: Beauty bag in Victoria’s Secret brand comes in with the above two handbag types.

Backpack bag:

When you are traveling, having a small backpack is a must accessory. It is very useful and easy to carry rather than a wallet or a sling bag. You can carry more weight and still be comfortable with a backpack.

So, having a small good backpack is always worth the investment.

The Sling bag/Crossbody bag:

A decent sling bag should go with most of your casual wear. It should have enough space to fit all your basic needs such as mobile, card wallet, cosmetics, and sanitary pad. You can wear this bag on your shoulder or use it as a crossbody bag.

Try buying the sling bag is the most used color such as black or grey (rather than choosing a red or pink color) so that you can use it on almost any color of your dress.


How much do I love my tote bags!! I can’t even explain.

Honestly speaking, you should be able to fit in all of the above bags I mentioned! Just kidding! πŸ˜‰

A tote bag should be in a size that can accommodate clothes for 2days at the least. You can pick a super fancy colorful one or select a formal one depending on your needs. You can take this bag to the beach or can be a perfect match for a woman with kids!

NOTE: I could not find the exact products as my pictures since I have bought the collection in last year’s Thanksgiving. So, I have added links for the nearest matches. Also, Victoria’s Secret has an offer today on the occasion of World Handbag Day!
