Some women love shoes. Some women covet makeup. Other women swoon for handbags. To be honest I fall in the middle with all of these as I adore shoes, quality handbags, and makeup is just so pretty. Recently I was introduced to a wonderful handbag company called 88 EightyEight Handbags and they are just awesome.
I need a handbag that will take a beating. I have invested in high quality, expensive handbags from Gucci to Louis Vuitton to Coach and they all fall a bit short. Over time things begin to fray and the fabric is just so soft. While gorgeous and stylish, they lack quality functionality for busy women. I do not have the time to convert purses each month like some women. I also do not have the patience to go shop for a purse and hope that it stands up to be tossed around in my Jeep, manhandled by my kids, shopping at Costco and toted around in between.
My 88 EightyEight Handbag is just amazing. I adore the color which is not your traditional, black, white, brown. The blue just pops and is magic. You will hear that a lot from me about my handbags. My kids call my purses and handbags “Momma’s Magic Bag” because I need to carry around quite a bit to handle busy twins and a tween. Tissues, chapstick, wipies, brushes, Tylenol and everything in between in stashed in my bag along with my items, my bill fold, perfume, change purse and cell phone. EVERYTHING and I do mean everything fits in there like a charm. With two handles to carry either on my forearm or slung over my shoulder this purse is excellent. Sturdy. Functional and can withstand the day-to-day of my life.
