I love discovering new brands. I sometimes have the tendency to find favorites and stick with them because I know I’m going to love them, but then I’ll find brands like Hammitt and it opens my eyes a little! This tote is not only gorgeous, you can also just feel the quality of the materials and know it’s going to last forever. There’s nothing worse than spending money on something that falls apart after a few uses. It doesn’t matter if you only spent $20 on it, to me, it’s about the principle. I could have used that $20 on a nice bottle of wine and felt better about it than a crappy bag whose handle breaks or a blouse that gets ruined after one wash. As a blogger, I’ve especially had to remind myself of how bad it feels when I waste money on clothes. It’s tempting to buy a lot of cheap things, since I have to wear a lot of new things, but I’ve figured out how to budget better so I can still invest in nicer pieces.
Do you have any new brands you’ve discovered lately?
