Ask Belle: Simple Satchels and Totes

Oct 20, 2015

Dear Belle,

My go-to purse is four years old and falling apart.  I would like to replace it with a nicer tote or satchel.  I’m looking ideally for a black bag, but I’m also open to another color.  My budget is about $300 and I need that to give me an all-around bag that isn’t too big.

I always like the inexpensive bags you post but I want something that will last.  I appreciate you taking the time.  AC

    Check 6pm.com for designer and non designer as well — they have good prices.

    Neiman Marcus Last Call is a great resource for purses, too. If you’re willing to cull through the junk (using the price and brand restrictions can help there), I’ve found some real gems for not much at all.

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.

When I started this blog, influencers still re-wore clothes. There were no haul videos filled with the latest from Shein before it winds up in a beach in Ghana poisoning the planet. There were no sponsored campaigns delivering fresh wardrobes each month. The content machine doesn’t like reruns.

The Find: Like a McCall’s Pattern

When I was young, my Mother used to bring me along when she would go shopping for fabric. As a result, I spent a lot of time, killing time, flipping through pattern books. So when I spotted this dress, I was instantly transported to the pattern table at a Jo-Ann Fabrics.
