Over the last few years, I’ve made a conscious effort to be more thoughtful about the clothing and accessories I buy. Not only does this help getting dressed each day easier and more enjoyable, but it also allows me to spend a little more on fewer quality items.
I was on the hunt for a new purse last year when I discovered Cuyana. This company believes in a “Fewer, better” model, which embraces the minimalist lifestyle so many people are trying to achieve. I know I certainly am. Instead of buying a purse that I’ll only use for a few months and never again, I want a purse that I can wear year-round. I bought this purse in March 2015 and it’s held up so well that I know it will last for years to come.
I don’t think there’s anything wrong with buying the occasional purse from Forever 21 or Target and I can’t promise I won’t do it again in the future. But for now, I’d rather invest in a purse that’s going to hold up beautifully day after day, multitask from day to night to weekend, and look great with every outfit.
