Handbags and Purses - What is Your Style?

The most important thing about a handbag or purse is not the name on the label or the logo, it is how you feel when you carry it. You can have the most sought after handbag of the season, but if you went beyond your budget for a designer handbag and you are losing sleep over the credit card bill, or if the currently "must have" handbag is a petite handbag that looks awesome but cannot hold all of the essentials you need, you may not feel so great when you carry it.

What is your style? The right handbag or purse for you is the one that makes you feel great when you grab it as you head out the door. Can a handbag or purse affect how you feel? Of course, just like a great fitting pair of jeans or that awesome sweater you got last week, the right style, size, and/or color handbag or purse can affect how you carry yourself.

My husband claims he can tell my mood just by what handbag or purse I've chosen to carry. He knew for example that the long Chicago winter had gotten to me when I broke out the colorful striped handbag and started carrying it in early February. A fashion faux pas? Maybe, but it did help me shake the winter blues, and put a little spring in my step. It even sparked conversations in line at the grocery store that always started with someone eyeing my handbag and stating they were so ready for spring!

There are so many great handbags and purses out there that you are sure to find one that makes you feel great when you carry it.

Discount Coach Handbags - Find One at a Coach Outlet Online Store

Discount Coach Handbags are very in high demand these days. One of the biggest reasons discount coach bags are in demand, is that when you compare them to fashion bags in general, coach bags are one of the cheapest. These bags are a great introduction to the fashion world. Many women save up for months in order to buy their very first coach handbag.

Even though coach bags may be cheap compared to other designer bags, they are still relatively costly. One of the best ways to get a good coach bag at a great price is to buy from an outlet store. Outlet stores have become known for offering a really great prices on products. Buying a handbag in an outlet store is no exception.

It was about 50 years ago that the first coach outlet store opened. The first stores success prompted many more store openings. At this point, you can find a coach outlet store in most major countries including Japan. Coach outlet stores are traded as a public company. Their main office is located in New York City.

One may wonder how do you get a great price at a coach outlet store. The way it works is that every sees in new product goes to the top tier coach stores. Many times, coach stores have extra inventory on hand. Instead of getting rid of the inventory, they sent it to an outlet store. Even though the product is from the previous season, and it may not be as popular for those who like to buy retail, they are still brand-new bags and they are still great product.

The extra inventory is sent to the outlet store. The product that is sent to the outlet store is discounted to the shopper. Even though the product is discounted, coach still makes a profit because the regular retail price is much higher. They make a smaller profit and sometimes they actually just break even, but they still recover the costs of creating the product. So, this is a win-win situation for coach and for you the shopper.

Don't forget about your other options. One would be to buy from an online store. They are also known as outlet stores, but my not be official Coach outlet stores. These online outlet stores sell handbags, and you can find them from Coach as well. The thing you do need to be aware of is that you need to know who the seller is and check their ratings. If you can find lots of good ratings and feedback from a seller, then you stand to get a good deal. One note about buying at auction. Make sure you don't just buy and make auction bids too early. If you do, you are inflating the price prematurely. Try to wait until the last moment. You stand to get better pricing that way.

Fendi Handbags

Fendi is an Italian brand name that has been around for over one hundred years. Every fashionista is sure to love a great handbag. Fendi bags are stylish, beautiful and high quality items that will last forever. To ensure quality and consistency many people purchase these at full price. However, the bags are often only available in limited qualities and they can be difficult to come by. As a result, some people choose to buy their Fendi handbags at a discount, rent them, or even consider a replica bag.

The brand name is a staple in the world of Italian fashion and design. The company was started over one hundred years ago by a husband and wife design team. The couple started with designing and making fine leather goods and fur items. Their business soon took off and their items were in demand around Italy.

In the 1980s Fendi began to appear in the United States. The brand name made its presence known in New York and Los Angeles, before moving across the country. Today, bags bearing this name are available across the country and the world. However, today this brand does not only make leather handbags. The company is also popular for their amazing fragrances, shoes, coats, and dresses.

Each season the house offers a new collection of items for sale to the public. These items include handbags, fragrances, shoes, coats and dresses. New collections are often only available in limited quantities. These limited quantities leave fashion lovers wanting more. In fact many stylish women find themselves sitting on waiting lists for the latest styles of handbags and apparel.

Since any couture-designed handbag can have an expensive price range of several hundred to several thousands of dollars, it is obvious that not everyone can afford to own one. For those of us that cannot afford to own an authentic anything, there are other options. One of the most popular options is renting a bag. New businesses are popping up every day that offer luxury handbag rentals.

If renting is not an option, some people choose to buy a faux bag. Fake handbags can actually look a lot like the real thing. Just because a bag is a fake, it does not mean that it will look cheap. Some fake bags are made from high quality materials. Buying a fake designer bag is a wonderful option for people that desire the look of a brand name without the large price tag.

For the fashion lover that does not want a fake and cannot bear to give a rented bag back, real ones can be found at a discount. Older bags can be found on Internet auction Websites and discount stores. In fact, some specialty stores even offer last season's bags at a discount. The trick is to get in touch with the store as soon as the new collection is ready for resale. The few lucky ones will walk away with an older bag that is brand new, and at a great price.

Handbags - Completing Your Style

Handbags play a very important role in the life of every woman today. It is something that almost every woman and even some men carry every day. It is a place to put our keys, wallets, and other essentials that are needed for use in everyday life.

Handbags can be dated back to early Egyptian times. Hieroglyphics depict figures carrying pouches around their waist, and over their shoulders probably made out of animal skins, however the pictures are quite clear that they are the earliest form of handbags. In early American history, hunters used pouches made of leather to carry food home to their families.

Style was probably not important in ancient times, or to the hunter, however with the evolution of the handbag century’s later handbags became an important accessory to complete any style.

Around the eighteenth hundreds, handbags became “The fashion Accessory” to complete any style or outfit. Although materials for the handbag were limited, the elegance of a well-made handbag could not be overlooked.

Handbags come in all shapes and sizes, all colors and fabrics. They are the final accessory to complete an outfit for a night on the town or a business meeting. Handbags complete your style.

There is a handbag to complete any style you are seeking to achieve.

Although leather is the most chosen material in the world today for handbags, when you are going with friends for a night on the town, you do not want a big clunky handbag. A small handbag will do well to keep your wallet and make up. This type of handbag will complete the style and look you want to achieve.

Choosing a handbag to complete a style does not mean that you have to spend thousands of dollars on a designer bag. You can find the perfect handbag by doing a simple Google search.
