Over dinner and wine we updated each other with our most recent purchases. Janie recently returned from Paris and bought a slew of new products. From skincare essentials, to makeup and accessories, she really purchased and ate her way through the French capital. I saw many of her new purchases on Instagram, but what I really wanted to know is what accessories she bought. Luckily she brought one of several new handbags she bought. Let me tell you, Janie has an amazing handbag collection. It's better than any celeb or style star. She owns over 400 designer handbags and and they are all amazing. From tiny clutches to large totes and satchels, Janie's handbag collection is unrivaled. Several fashion magazines recently photographed and wrote articles on her handbag closets. Yes, she has more than one handbag closet. And there aren't normal closets, they are the large walk-in variety. Actually, I shouldn't call them closets as they are huge rooms. Walk-in wardrobes are the envy of many a fashionable around the globe. Log on to Pinterest and you will see millions of photographs of stunning walk-in closets. Many of these closets are bigger than some homes. Some even have more than one level. I love visiting her home so I can invade those beautiful handbag rooms.
During our second glass of wine and after the tables were cleared, Janie plopped her new handbag down on the white table cloth. It was simply gorgeous. I felt like I couldn't breathe as it nearly took my break away. The sturdy, but soft leather body is something legends are made of. I've seen beautiful leather hides in my life, but this really stood out. And it's the perfect shade of greyish blue. Not too dark and not too light and without any sort of odd undertones. This was one of those designer handbags that deserves the spotlight. What is it about women and designer handbags? We love them and we love to spend money on them. Jane's new handbag is the epitome of chic. It's understated, but absolutely charming and lovely. I imagine it will go with many of her outfits. And this leads me to my own accessories. I definitely need to step up my game when it comes to designer handbags. I've already eyed several new styles from brands I love that will fit perfectly into my wardrobe.
