This summer I tried to fill my closet with some lighter colored pieces, and I have been waiting patiently for fall to transition back to black. As my style and trends evolve, I try to buy a few pieces each season to fold into my staples. The first items that catch my eye are always the expensive ones, so I challenge myself to find cheaper versions that can do the job just as well, or better, than the expensive items. Here are some of my fall must haves for far less. PS: I’m a big believer in investing in luxury handbags, but in this case I feel like the inside out sides aren’t going to be trending for long. If you’re looking to invest in a black bag, make sure you choose a timeless silhouette with functionality that fits with your life on a daily basis.
