TIPS
*When buying a bag,buy the one that catches your eye first because it’s the one you are most likely to take home
*When storing your tote bags,puteither papers or a clean towel inside the bag,so that they do not lose their shape.
* Rather invest in a good handbag that will last you a life time than buying cheap bags that you will have to replace from time to time.
*Black is not the only color, buy other colors,the more colors you have the better.
*Never over load your handbags,it shortens their life span
