Wednesday, May 13, 2015

Who doesn’t like a good black handbag? And who doesn’t love a fabulous black handbag that will make strangers stop and ask where you found it?

If you aren’t handbag shopping at & Other Stories, you are missing out. This new-to-the-US retailer has a stunning selection of high-quality, reasonably priced handbags. And the best part: since & Other Stories is still relatively unknown to people who don’t closely follow fashion, chances are pretty high that your bag will be 100% unique amongst your circle of friends and acquaintances.

Check out my current black bag favorites…

This leather carry-all is my top pick. I love the size, the minimalist shape, and the dual top handle/ shoulder strap options. But, the reptile-embossed shoulder strap is the cherry on the sundae. It’s just the right amount of contrast.
