Anatomy of a Handbag – Part 2

19 Mar

My design people are still hard at work. Here is the second in a series of helpful tips on how to buy the perfect handbag. Check out the first one here at Part 1.  They have come up with a handbag measurement guide or sizing chart to help you buy the right handbag. Just find out what the handbag dimensions are and you are on you way to picking the right size handbag. Use this when purchasing one over the internet, when in the physical store try also using a mirror. Put the bag on just like any other fashion item you are buying. Check it out.

Let me know what you think.

Love Our Handbags Being Real – What does Faux Leather Mean?

5 Aug

Well we do it too, but we are upfront about it. A lot of handbag company’s use the words “faux leather” or “faux material” and so do we. We have even seen a bag company advertise “genuine faux leather”. That one was amazing to us.

The fact of the matter is faux means imitation or fake. It is a french term that is pronounced “foh” (with a long O), with the exact meaning of “false”.  Our industry has changed its meaning as if faux was an exotic material. It’s not. It does sound better that saying false or fake doesn’t it.

But LoveOurHandbags.com is being real and we use it because it does sound better, but it really means imitation of the real material, so faux leather means imitation leather or artificial leather. We provide the word faux leather in the title of the handbag, but we often say its synthetic or simulated leather as well.

As always please comment about our blog, we are always being real. Thanks for tuning in.

What is a Hobo Handbag?

27 Jul

The hobo bag is a style of handbag or purse that is typically large and characterized by a crescent shape, a slouchy structure and a long strap designed to wear over the shoulder. Hobo bags are made out of soft, flexible materials and tend to slump, or slouch, when you sit down. There are many different sizes and shapes of this popular handbag.

The hobo bag has become a very popular choice worn by Hollywood celebrities.

Hobo bags have a strap, whose length is often adjustable. Most women wear hobo bags on their shoulder, as opposed to holding the strap in their hand. Hobo bags are produced using flexible materials such as soft leather, microfiber or suede. As a result, this style of bag tends to slouch or fold in on itself, even when hanging from a woman’s shoulder.

Hobo bags tend to have a casual appearance they look great when paired with relaxed summer apparel that includes maxi sun dresses, skinny jeans or even cotton Capri pants.

Most hobo bags provide women with enough room to carry all their essential items such as a wallet, phone and cosmetics bag. If you’re anything like me in the summer I love to wear heels but I carry a pair of flip flops in my bag as well.

While hobo bags look great, different styles and colors are appropriate for different occasions.

Large hobo bags are too bulky and should not be worn with office attire, particularly conservative suits or with very formal dresses. Instead, they are better paired with casual clothing. When choosing a hobo bag for formal attire, pick one that’s smaller in size also one that is a solid color without pattern.

Hobo handbags can vary in pricing and we carry an array of them. Look for stylish hobos at www.loveourhandbags.com.

We are proud that we have come this far. As our open letter indicates, women in a domestic crisis situation must leave quickly from an unsafe situation. That women must quickly grab something and leave when she feels unsafe and most of the time if she can, she takes her purse. That’s why we also sell in bulk at significant discount to non-profits that serve women in crisis. A dependable handbag can be so versatile and necessary.

LoveOurHandbags.com donates a portion of its profits to organizations that support women in domestic, sexual assault and servitude crisis situations. We are part of uplifting women from their crisis and getting back to the wonderful lives that she is owed.

What is a Satchel Handbag?

11 Sep

Many cases it does depend on who you ask. However, satchels used to be only indicative of bags that men used, that had a flap and typically wore across the body like a messenger bag (we will talk about these soon). But as women came into their own and fashion defined the bags that women wore, satchels in handbag terms, had a specific meaning.  Satchels are usually structured bags, almost like a briefcase originally. But now they can mean any bag that has a rigid feel structure and often satchels can stand up on their own. They may or may not have a flap, and they often times have a triangular structure and a short handle and are not necessarily worn over the shoulder but by the hand.

Here are some satchels that one could always call them satchels. As I said it sometimes depends on who you ask.

Then there are those bags that people call satchels and its difficult to clearly see why it’s called a satchel as it may not be structured or can stand on its own and isn’t somewhat triangular in structure.

And here is what the “man” version of the satchel looks like, oddly when speaking in terms of the man’s version of the satchel its pretty clear it’s a bag kind of like a briefcase that has a long strap and a flap and probably does not stand on its own. So different from the contemporary version of the women’s satchel.

The men’s version of the satchel is just ugly ladies..isn’t it. Tell us what you think.
