Here at The Style Duo we often talk about steals vs. splurges and keeping things in good balance. Not every item in your ensemble needs to be high end and pricey for you to look like a million bucks. Knowing what to allow yourself to give in to and what you don’t need to indulge on is the trick of the trade in our world. We like to think we have mastered this technique and very often inexpensive clothes that we are wearing are mistaken for highly expensive designer versions. However, one thing we always like to splurge on is our handbag. Yes, there are fabulous knockoffs and replicas out there but it doesn’t feel quite right to us. Instead, we save and budget so we can treat ourselves to the real deal when the new Stella McCartney’s and Chanel’s land on the shelves. Maybe it stems from years ago when our mom brought home her first Louis Vuitton bag. The way it smelled, looked, and felt is still etched in our minds as if it were yesterday. And the thrill we got just watching our mom with her new purse was enough to have her little twin fashionistas eyeing handbags season after season to this very day. And this Spring is no exception. Take a look at this year’s fabulous styles and you too will be hooked!
