National Handbag Day | A Celebration of Handbags

If ever there was a holiday created especially for MyBag, it would be National Handbag Day. Yes, ladies, you heard correctly – Saturday 10th October is officially recognised as National Handbag Day 2015, and here at MyBag, we can’t wait to celebrate in style!

Treat yourself on National Handbag Day to some designer handbags and accessories at MyBag!

In honour of National Handbag Day, we’ve decided to celebrate the handbag in all its glory. We’ve compiled a list of reasons why the designer handbag is more than deserving of a day of festivity and merriment – can you think of any more?

MyBag Loves Designer Handbags Because….

1. Designer handbags can be fun.

A handbag can be fun, quirky and eccentric, and add colour and joy to any outfit or occasion. Keeping the rest of your outfit minimalist and monochrome? Add a splash of texture, pop of colour or explosion of adornment to inject some fun into your look.

Here are some of our favourite tongue-in-cheek styles…

2. Designer handbags can be practical as well as beautiful.

Whilst sensible shoes and no-nonsense haircuts are thought to be safe – and at times, dismally boring – the possibilities are endless when shopping for a stylish yet practical handbag. Pockets, zips, gadget slots – these everyday essential elements are seamlessly incorporated into beautiful bags. Structured designs, versatile carrying options and numerous pockets are extremely useful – yet also effortlessly chic and on trend!

Here are some of our favourite essential styles…

3. Designer handbags can become iconic.

There are a number of famous handbag designs which have withstood the tests of time to remain relevant, coveted, and loved. Here at MyBag, we think a classic handbag is one of the most important items for any fashionista’s wardrobe – with an iconic handbag, you’re always in style!

4. Designer handbags can demonstrate your individuality.

We love how a bag can showcase your individual style through colour, texture and fabric, whilst still looking beautiful. Even when your outfit needs to remain neutral, a handbag can display your personality and individuality to the world through design, structure and embellishment.
