Celine Luggage Handbag
One of the first designer handbags I ever purchased, the Celine Luggage has a soft spot in my heart! The Micro (middle) size is great for your day-to-day items, and the Mini (largest) size can fit a laptop (and basically your entire life inside – its huge!). Even the Nano (smallest) size holds a fair bit for a mini bag – to see exactly what can fit inside the Mini and Nano sizes head to my Instagram and check out my ‘Bag’ story highlights. This bag comes in drummed or smooth calfskin. I own the smooth calfskin in both the Mini and the Nano – it does scratch more than the drummed leather but it’s supposed to hold its shape better over time. The only cons with the Mini Luggage is that it’s quite heavy (definitely heavier than the Belt Bag), and doesn’t have a shoulder strap. Despite the weight, I still love this bag, and it’s size makes it perfect for traveling with too.
Saint Laurent Sac De Jour
The next bag on my Wishlist, Saint Laurent’s Sac De Jour tote is timelessly classic and perfect for the office. The design features expandable sides and multiple internal pockets to keep all your daily essentials organised.
Prada Saffiano Galleria
An old classic, you can’t go wrong with a Prada ‘Galleria’ bag – it will easily take you from the office to your after work functions. The leather on this is really durable so it’s a great bag for daily use. It also has three separate compartments to keep all your handbag belongings organised and easy to access, ad a side snap to make the bag even roomier if needed.
Celine Belt Bag
One of my most recent purchases, I had been eyeing off the Celine Belt Bag for a while! I’m wearing the Micro (middle) size in the above picture, but the Mini (large) size is also perfect for work if you need to carry a bit more. The bag closes via the top flap and also has a inside zipper. I’ll usually just leave the inside zipper open and close it via the flap to make accessing what’s inside a bit easier. To see exactly what can fit inside this, head to my Instagram and check out my ‘Bag’ story highlights for a whats-in-my bag. The leather on this is quite durable and it’s a nice subtle but stylish bag for work.
Saint Laurent Shopper Tote
A great minimal and understated tote bag that will fit all your work essentials, from a laptop to a pair of shoes and a makeup bag. Tote bags are great because they’re so practical, light and spacious. Made from black textured-leather, this bag also comes with a detachable pouch to keep your coins or small essentials in. A great every day work bag or an in-flight carry-on.
Burberry Banner Bag
Another great understated designer bag that is perfect for the office, the Burberry Banner bag is a classic. The grommeted Vintage check strap adds a bit of interest to an otherwise plain bag, and the strap is also detachable.
Louis Vuitton Neverfull
A classic tote bag from Louis Vuitton, the Neverfull is spacious and sturdy, perfect for fitting all your work essentials in.
Another bag I have had my eyes on recently, the Fendi Peekaboo bag is so classic and chic! It has two compartments to help keep thins organised, and an adjustable, detachable shoulder strap. Although this is definitely one of the pricier bags in this list, you can pick up a pre-loved one for a decent price if you keep an eye open.
The Givenchy Antigona bag is durable and spacious, and has a shoulder strap that makes it comfortable for carrying. If the medium size looks to bulky on you, try the small size – it still fits a fair bit.
