Purse Update: Two Black Bags You Should Know

As far back as high school I have prioritized handbags as my investment piece of choice. You can get away with wearing an inexpensive cotton dress as long as your accessories are polished.

Lately, I updated my wardrobe with two black everyday bags: the Anine Bing Felix bag and my Daily Edited pebbled utility bag.

Anine Bing was one of the world’s first influencers and many years ago she started a clothing line – you may already follow her. I had been admiring a similar Celine bag when I saw the Felix bag, offered at a fraction of the cost. The inside is larger than it looks as it holds all of my essentials. The interior is red and the bag itself looks at home among my favorite luxury designer bags, like Celine and Dior. I dress it down with jeans and up with an all-white summery outfit. Anine nailed this one.

The Daily Edited is one of my long-time favorite companies. The founder, Alice, is a talented Aussie entrepreneur and I love her personalized products and beautiful packaging. I have been a patron of theirs for years. This utility bag offers many compartment and storage, *plus* its completely customizable with your initials or name. This is another piece that is versatile and will go with any outfit. To dress it up, I would consider taking off the extra attachments and carrying with the smaller handles to give it more of a handbag rather than a crossbody feel.
