Hand­bags – we can never get enough of them be­cause there is no such thing as too many hand­bags! Do not lis­ten to any­one who says oth­er­wise. If you are a hand­bag hoarder (which most of us are), you should prob­a­bly know about the dif­fer­ent types so you can buy more of th­ese in dif­fer­ent styles! You didn’t see that com­ing, did you? And, that’s why we have a quick check­list for you to go through as we’d hate you to miss any of th­ese.

SATCHEL satchels are per­fect for work­ing women – they hit the sweet spot be­tween be­ing an ev­ery­day hand­bag and a lap­top bag. with this, you don’t have to carry two bags. It can fit in all your ba­sics, plus your gad­gets too. But, re­mem­ber to in­vest in a bag that is sturdy and of good qual­ity – th­ese needs to last longer, so you can­not af­ford any­thing sloppy! JUleZ WRISTLET wristlets are just like your wal­lets, but are so much more func­tional and com­fort­able to carry. Coach and louis Vuit­ton have some fancy and el­e­gant look­ing wristlets. They have enough space to hold your card, cash, and phone too, plus you can carry it on the wrist and be palms free. og oKonKwo mINAUDIERE Minaudiere is a clutch en­crusted with coloured stones, gems, pearls, etc., and oozes grandeur. so, when you have a re­ally spe­cial event, cock­tail party, wed­ding or an evening party to at­tend, you should carry a Minaudiere in­stead of a clutch. and, for those spe­cial days, we ab­so­lutely need one!

CLUTCH The clutch or ‘a Day Clutch’ is sim­ply classy, el­e­gant, and pure so­phis­ti­ca­tion, be­cause we can­not sport a huge bag when we are all dressed up for an event or a party. The only prob­lem some peo­ple have is not be­ing able to de­cide what to carry and what to leave out but, hey, it’s worth it. how­ever, if you are some­one who just can­not do with a small clutch, there are some brands that of­fer clutches with com­part­ments and thus give you more space than the nor­mal ones. But, ev­ery girl needs a clutch for sure! oPe MaK­Inwa

SHOUL­DER BAG The shoul­der bag or the ev­ery­day bag is the most func­tional bag of them all. and, ev­ery brand has its own va­ri­ety, which only makes it more dif­fi­cult to re­sist buy­ing mul­ti­ple ones from dif­fer­ent brands. But, we are not com­plain­ing, are we? They are big and fit in all your bare ne­ces­si­ties, be­cause – let’s face it – we prac­ti­cally carry a mini su­per­mar­ket any­way. Just do it in style. oZInna anUMUDU
