In Hollywood, it’s all about what you’ve got hanging on your arm.
Sure, it’d be nice if it were a hunky gentleman ([lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Justin Timberlake[/lastfm], we’re looking at you!), but if that’s a no-go, a hot designer handbag is always a good substitute.
If you’re like Carson and the rest of the morning show crew, you might be clueless about what is fashionable these days and which purses are worth the expensive splurge.
Well, worry no longer! We talked to an accessories expert about what we should be carrying around for the fall season!
This morning, Carson chatted it up with Sabina Jacobs.
She’s the chief authenticator for LuxeDH. It’s a website that sells gently-used designer handbags for up to 50% off the retail price!
So if you’re dying for the most in-demand purses, but your wallet is feeling a little thin, LuxeDH is the place where you can get some seriously good deals.
Carson is currently in the market for a cute bag for his girlfriend, so he had a ton of questions for Sabina.
For celebrities, Balenciaga and Chanel are the it-brands right now.
That doesn’t come as a surprise to us because they’re so versatile.
Chanel, in particular, can give you an air of sophistication like [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lady Gaga[/lastfm] or you can rough it up with a rocker-chic vibe like [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rihanna[/lastfm].
If you’re buying your accessories online, there’s a ways to ensure you’re purchasing the real deal and not a cheap knock-off.
Sabina clued us in:
If you’re looking at a Louis Vuitton handbag, you want to make sure all your LV’s line up straight and that they’re symmetrical on both sides. Also, a lot of Louis Vuitton handbags are made of just one continuous piece of canvas, so you’re going to have one side that’s upside down and one side that’s right side up.
If you want to splurge, the Birkin bag is one of the most-famously expensive purses. Dubbed “the bag of all bags,” it can cost upwards of $300,000!
What makes it so pricey? Sabina credits Hermes’ amazing craftsmanship and deluxe materials like alligator skin.
Personally, we prefer our bags to be animal-free, but to each their own!
We’re on a budget, so we wanted to know, what 3 basic types of purses should every girl have in her closet? Sabina recommends:
- A large tote for overnight trips
- A clutch or a classic evening bag for fancy nights out
- Some kind of waterproof handbag for more casual days
