5 Awesome Sustainable Handbags

It’s no secret that many women love handbags, sometimes perhaps a little too much, but who would have thought that it would ever get to the point where an entire day of the year would be put aside especially for handbags to be celebrated in all their glory?

Well, believe it or not, Handbag Day exists, and real people actually do take some time out of their day to celebrate it and pay tribute to their beloved collection of handbags as well as all those they wish they could afford.

It is a day when women talk about handbagseven more than usual, both on the Internet, through blogs, and in real life with friends. It is a day where the greatest designs and designers are discussed and celebrated.

And also a day through which the purchase of a new handbag or bags for the more extravagant can be justified and needs no explanation. (Original Source: Handbag Day)
