Having a great handbag is an investment and personally, I’d rather splurge on a staple that can be worn daily (I have a weakness for Chanel, YSL and Louis Vuitton to name a few…my poor husband lol…). I was actually just lamenting the other day how most of my handbags are black because it’s a classic but that I do want to start branching out in colors/styles. I think buying into a trend frequently isn’t ideal…why? Because many trends are seasonal and have a short life span.
But I will say, sometimes I do cave in and opt to purchase a cute, on trend bag every now and then – and in Summer ’17, it’s alllllll about this fab Cult Gaia handbag! Plus, I think this bag can be used throughout the Summer season and on vacations many more years to come…so, totally worth it.
Its unique arc shape is eye-catching and even though it’s one of the best selling bags out there, and I don’t like having something everyone has, I couldn’t help myself. It’s all over Instagram and beyond but I’m happy with my purchase. The size is great (I went with the smaller one, but from the photos I’ve looked at online, I’d be happy with the large as well) and it holds all of the essentials. I was a little hesitant at first when I saw it because of the slits in the bag…not wanting my phone or keys to fall through obviously. However, no worries there – everything fits perfectly and nothing falls through. What’s great is that the Cult Gaia bag also comes in other colors – the acrylic is fab too!!
