Budget To Blowout: 10 Lust-Have Bags


Come rain or shine, sun or snow, beautiful bags will always be in season. But, it’s January. And that means most of us will be counting the pennies a little more than usual.

Whether you’re shopping with a budget or spending with a blowout, here’s a few of the best bag lust-haves for winter.

Best for a blowout…

1 Vivienne Westwood’s Pimlico Saffiano leather tote


With textured grained leather and polished gold-toned hardware, this little bag is total arm candy.

2 Gucci’s Dionysus medium top handle bag


This little number isn’t only sleek, it’s symbolic too. The textured tiger head spur is a nod to the Greek god Dionysus, who in myth is said to have crossed the river Tigris on a tiger sent to him by Zeus.

Soft, exquistely supple leather – other than the price, what’s not to love?
