Hand bags, otherwise known as purses, are an absolutely vital accessory for every woman. They come in tons of different shapes, sizes, styles, materials, and colors. There are almost as many purses as there are women willing to buy them! Perhaps the most famous handbag retailer is Coach. These purses are synonymous with style and quality. Almost every woman recognizes this name whether they own a purpose by this manufacturer or not. These purses come at a really steep price tag, as do other designer handbags. Some other famous brands include Juicy Couture, Louis Vuitton, Versace, Gucci, Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Prada, Guess?, Fendi, MuiMui, Hermes, Tiffany, Fossil, and Ralph Lauren, to name a few. These purses are always eye catching and usually have large brand logos on them to let everyone know you can afford the best. If you can't afford to buy one of these handbags from a local retailer, there are services that allow you to rent them. These are perfect for a special occasion or when you want to treat yourself to a little luxury. However, shoppers need to be very wary when buying these because knock offs are literally everywhere. That's why you should only buy handbags from reputable local retailers such as Nordstrom's, Macy's, and high end specialty retailers.
