Hooray! It’s National Handbag Day!

Hooray!  It’s National Handbag Day!  As of late just about everything has “a day” and October 10 is the day for all handbag lovers to celebrate, shop and show off their love of handbags!

Handbag, purse, tote, whatever you call this must have accessory is for many (like me) a necessity.  Handbags can transform and liven up any outfit.  Running errands or have plans to hit the gym later, so you opt to dress down in workout gear for the day?   Grab a structured tote or satchel and you will instantly feel a bit more “uptown”.

I love a great bag!  I like to carry and collect bags, a range of colors and styles is important!  For me a collection of handbags is slightly more awesome than a great shoe collection!  And I have a pretty decent shoe collection ;-)!

Handbags are so versatile they can be tiny or extra-large, they are available in just about any material or fabric we can think of and let’s not forget colors!  And lets not forget– they are functional, they carry all of our important and sometimes not so important STUFF!

The Chickwares team has decided to celebrate this day by sharing our bag “du jour” over on Instagram as well as some images of our favorite bags here on the blog!

 

Bags we love (just a few)!  It’s National Handbag Day!

Must Have Series: The Best Hobo Bags For Every Girl!

Welcome to our must-have fashion series of posts!  There are just some things that every girl “must-have”, so this series of posts are dedicated to those things that a girl must have in her closet.  A great hobo bag is one of those things and you’re in luck, “Best Hobo Bags” is the first installment of the must have series, so you haven’t missed a thing!  We are super-excited to pull these options together because well honestly, it gives us yet another reason to shop!  To celebrate the series we will be offering a FABULOUS giveaway this month, so stay tuned for more information.

Hobo bags offer a slouchy yet sophisticated bag look, these bags are versatile; great casual everyday bag option but can be an awesome work bag choice.  The only shortfall I see when carried as a work bag is the potential for this shape to not be super laptop friendly, if you have a need to carry one daily.  Given that this shape has less structure and designed to collapse in on itself, carrying a laptop inside along with your other items might not work well.  There are more structured options available that could work well, we’ve captured a few in this post.  With so many fabulously wonderful options available, who can pick just one?!  We’ve pulled together a small collection of affordable hobo bag options, some are new and some are tried and true classic styles, hope you enjoy!

As always we enjoyed doing our shopping homework and sharing it with you!  Do you like the hobo bag style?  What bag(s) have you identified as a “must-have” for Fall?  Leave a comment, we’d love to hear from you!

Happy Shopping!
