In an era of investment dressing, it is only natural that we all want to invest in beautiful, timeless handbags. While many investment bags can be in the thousands of dollars, it is nice to know there are several investment worthy handbags out there which are not only under $2000, but under $1000 as well. Love that!

These six handbags exude everything which is important in style and fashion at the moment. In addition, many of these handbag styles have been popular for years, even decades! This makes them not only classic, but good investments. Think of the reduced cost-per-wear when you can keep a bag in rotation for years and years; even decades! Amazing!

So, let’s dive into these six investment handbags and find the right one for your wardrobe; or maybe you already own one or more of them! Kudos to you! You already know investment purchases save money over time since you don’t need to replace an item every season or so. When you invest in something timeless, made from high quality materials and crafted by skilled artisans, the item will withstand the test of time as well as transcend trends. This makes it an investment piece.

Toteme T Lock bag: While this bag is new to the world of fashion, it has already proven to be favored by those who invest in their wardrobes. It is made from high-quality leather and the craftsmanship is impeccable. Since the t-lock logo is tiny, it is a handbag which displays quality versus shouting at the world how much it cost. It comes with a top handle, and a shoulder strap making it versatile and easy to wear for multiple occasions. The t-lock bag is available in various, timeless hues such as black, caramel, grey, and ivory. Any color you choose will withstand the test of time. Check out my review here. Love it!

Green woven handbag: While this Bottega Veneta Loop Bag is shown in classic Parakeet, aka “Bottega Green,” it is available in a rainbow of colors, all of which are timeless. This is a style which has been in Bottega Veneta’s repertoire for years and has proven to be a classic staple in their line. You can read my review here. Fabulous!

Coach Swinger Bag: This cute little bag is a reissue of a popular style from Coach’s glove tanned leather heyday. It is made from Coach’s modern version of glove tanned leather and offers a short and long strap, giving the bag versatility. It has proven to be extremely popular, so much so, that Coach has trouble keeping black in stock! Don’t worry, if black is sold out you can go on a wait list, it restocks fairly quickly. I have had mine for a few years now and the leather gets better with time; just like back in the day! I find it to be great for travel and everyday use. My review is here. This investment bag is under $500, love that!

Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag: This is a classic daytime bag which has been popular for a decade now. You no longer have to go on a waitlist to grab a bag, but that doesn’t diminish the popularity of this handbag. The bucket bag is still hot and it is a classic style. The leather and craftsmanship are high quality and will withstand the test of time. While it may scratch initially, the scratches blend into the leather giving it a beautiful patina over time, much like glove tanned leather. This is a handbag for investors and those who know quality.

Chloe Marcie Cross Body bag: This cutie has been around for roughly two decades and is still hotter than hot. While the satchel version is twice the price, you can snap up the cross-body for under $2000. The cross-body version is available in multiple sizes and a large range of colors. You cannot go wrong investing in the Chloe Marcie! The leather is beautiful as well as the craftsmanship. It is a true investment!

Mulberry Amberley: This is my new obsession. My Mulberry wish list a mile long, so I need to buy a lottery ticket and win! haha. Mulberry uses the highest quality leather as well as employs the finest artisans. Not only that, they work hard to be eco-friendly and lower thier carbon footprint. This is an amazing company I can get behind. Make your wish list! But back to the Amberley, this classic shoulder bag has been in thier line for years and makes a fabulous investment handbag. I love mine! You can read my review here.

Coach Day Tote review

coach day tote review

Pictured: Coach Day Tote in Silver/Faded Blue (looks like pale turquoise or mint green in person) /

How pretty is this tote bag! I love having a good, workhorse tote bag; especially during the summer months. This roomy tote bag has everything I need, and possibly you too, in a tote bag. Love!

The Coach Day Tote is currently available in several colors, ivory, mustard, canvas, black and faded blue. I love this faded blue color because it is reminiscent of the sea and is so pretty in person. These photos do not do the color justice!

As with all of Coach’s handbags, the Day Tote is made from sturdy pebbled leather and the craftsmanship is high quality. This means the stitching is strong, and the bag can handle everything you put inside of it without being compromised. I have also found that the leather is easy to clean if it gets dirty. I use a slightly damp cloth, and dirt wipes off easily without damaging the leather or rubbing the color off of the bag.

Most open tote bags do not have a clasp, the Coach Day Tote offers a magnetic clasp which I find to be a good feature. I clasp it when I set the bag down so it keeps it’s shape, which helps it from flopping over if the contents are unbalanced. Who knew a small clasp would be so helpful! Love!

Typically, most tote bags have an interior pocket of some sort. The Coach Day Tote has a detachable pocket which is really a little pouch. This is handy if you use the tote for work. You can keep your lunch money in the pouch and detach it when going to lunch or buying more coffee. This is also handy for travel if you don’t want to bring a purse in addition to the tote bag. You can use the little pouch as a small clutch.

The interior capacity of the Coach Day Tote is quite large. Even with my typical tote bag contents, there is still plenty of room. This tote fits my laptop too with plenty of room to spare. It is a great work tote, travel tote, or summer activity tote. I am in love!

For smaller items such as lipstick and keys, the interior pouch can be used. For photography purposes I threw everything inside the bag so you could see the space. If you use a tote organizer, it will fit nicely inside the Day Tote too.

The Coach Day Tote is a great, workhorse tote bag which can be used for years. It offers a classic style and silhouette as well as roomy interior capacity. The detachable pouch a great feature too. I love the faded blue hue for the summer season, but if you are looking for something to wear all year long, the classic black, ivory, or signature canvas might be perfect for you.
