Every smart girl knows that one of the most vital things she MUST have in her wardrobe is the perfect purse. Here at NL Collective Group, we’ve searched high and low for that consummate accessory, the perfect sized pocketbook that you can take everywhere, that holds all the essentials (depending on who you are, but here’s our list): wallet, phone, lipstick, gum. Give or take a few items (personally, I don’t go anywhere without my roll-on Marc Jacobs Lola perfume!) but you get the idea. These purses should be good-to-go for a casual lunch date or a glam night on the town. Lately, we’re loving purses that are as versatile as they are chic. Think “Transformers.” They can be a cross-body, a shoulder bag, or even a clutch, depending on how you play around with the strap. Amazing, right? And there are so many options out there! These carryall confections have been all over runways, fashion showrooms, and retail stores everywhere. These purses are branded and marketed for every type of girl, because, well, everyone SHOULD have one! Fashion industry powerhouses Marc Jacobs, Derek Lam, Burberry, and Fendi all have their own versions of the perfect purse. We’re especially loving the envelope shaped hand-stitched bag with a chain by luxury brand Xuan-Thu Nguyen. It’s chic, neutral, and not to mention the stitching is exquisite. So when it’s time to go somewhere—anywhere at all—grab your perfect purse, throw in the items you can’t leave home without (we all have them) and you’re good to go.
