Here at MyBag, we live and breathe handbags. Our collections of totes, clutches and shoppers are growing by the day;  we simply can't resist treating ourselves each season to a luxury new addition to our handbag families...

If you're as enamored with handbags as we are, you're probably fed up with people not understanding your obsession. Perhaps they've called it unhealthy; perhaps they're confused why you need yet another black leather clutch. Perhaps they've even suggested that you don't need another handbag. However, we're here to prove them wrong, and explain why our accessory addiction is 100% normal...

You don’t see a handbag as a handbag. You see it as possibility.

Research has shown that we’ve spent more money than ever before on handbags in 2016*, and that women get more pleasure out of buying a designer handbag than any other accessory**. That’s pretty compelling evidence to suggest that our obsession is totally normal…
