A Must-Have Quality Leather Handbag

Hello beauties! Happy Friday!!! How’s May going so far?? Good, I hope! Let’s talk about how tiring this week has been.  Between work and the girls’ school activities, it’s been a crazy one! One had a chapel event at school on Wednesday so I got to see her sing and recite verses at their school chapel, the younger one had “Letter people day” on Thursday so had to dress her up as “Miss V” lol Anyhoo, glad it’s Friday! I’m excited to share today’s post because it’s something every professional lady needs in her life: A quality leather handbag, y’all! Yass!

Read on for a 40% off promo code to use towards a handbag purchase at Cocovann.  Woo hoo!

A structured, gorgeous, luxe handbag can be that point on the exclamation mark or even the exclamation mark to an outfit, period! It’s perhaps THE must-have item any working woman needs to round out that slayer look.  So when choosing, choose carefully:

What to Consider when Picking a Quality Leather Handbag:

  • Structure:
    • How is it structured? You want something durable that will last for ages.
  • Materials:
    • What’s it made out of, girl? You can never go wrong with leather!

  • Color:
    • Are you looking for a classic like black or navy blue?
    • Do you want a pop of color?
    • Do you want a neutral like cream or a metallic as a neutral?
  • Size & Functionality:
    • Is it an everyday bag?
    • What do you need it for? The basics: makeup bag, phone, keys…Or file folders, a tablet or laptop, kids snacks and such?
  • Versatility:
    • Can it go from desk to dinner or drinks?
    • Can you carry it on the weekends or is it just for work?
  • Price:
    • What is your budget? 
    • Are you looking for luxe for less or a high-end designer piece?
    • Do you need to save for it?

If you are in the market for a stylish, well-crafted, leather handbag for the chic working lady, then consider Cocovann. I don’t play when it comes to handbags because it’s best to select durable pieces that will stand the test of time versus buying not-so-great quality pieces that won’t last as long.  Trust your girl when I say the ROI on a quality piece makes the investment worthwhile! 

I chose this beautiful gold number because I love the shape and color.  Metals are a great way to shake up your neutrals, by the way! You can get a metallic bag for a change in the same ole, same ole.  Not to worry! If gold is a bit er, much for you, I’m not offended lol They’ve got other beautiful colors that may be more to your taste.  

PLUS! If you get a bag from their AW16 collection between May 5th, 2017 – June 5th, 2017,  use the code TOKESFASHION for 40% off your purchase!

Makes for a great Mother’s day gift too so you can get one for yourself or gift it! Check out the collection here.

Happy shopping!!
