My favorite accessory has ALWAYS been handbags! Whenever I’m shopping the handbag department is always the first place I go. I love them because you can get so much use out of them, way more than clothing or most shoes because you wear it and use it every single day. Recently I asked you guys what type of content you want to see more of on my blog and a few of you mentioned that you’d like to hear more about my collection of handbags, which bags are my favorite and if designer bags are worth the investment. So today I’m excited to answer a few of your questions and talk all about my newest bag I just got for summer!!!

Whenever I go to buy a new bag I ask myself these questions:

° I know it’s beautiful, but is it also functional and practical (especially being a mom of two)?

° How will it wear?

° How often will I use it? What occasions can I use it for (i.e. can it double as a diaper bag)

° Do I already have something like it?

° Will it keep me organized?

° Is it worth the investment?

This Maestra bag and envelope from the new luxury handbag brand Senreve (made in Italy) checks everything on my list. The leather is pebbled so if you spill something on it you can wipe it off easy! It can be worn three ways (crossbody, satchel and backpack) and there’s so many storage compartments to keep everything organized (diaper bag double). I don’t have a bag that can be worn three ways and it reminds me of a Celine tote only way less expensive with way more storage compartments!! Definitely worth the investment!

Literally anything and everything you need fits in it: laptop, camera, snacks, magazines, small blanket, Diet Coke, cosmetic bag, etc. Lately I’ve been taking it to meetings because I love that my laptop and any fabric or clothing samples for my clothing line fit great. And I plan to use it as a carry on for my next trip! It’s seriously the perfect bag!

I’ll be sharing more about my favorite bags that I own in the near future, so stay tuned! And let me know if you have any questions about my Maestra!

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
