The Bag That Will Last Through Winter and Your Whole Life

Today's Editor's Pick comes from Racked SF editor Kristen Philipkoski

In fall, I always feel the need for a new, sturdy handbag that will last me through the winter. However, I've taken up with a new philosophy that advocates buying fewer things, and making sure the things I do buy are high quality and will see me through not just one season but many years of use. Conveniently, SF-based Cuyana's motto is "buy fewer, better things," and their leather tote is poised to serve for life.

Usually such high quality is also terribly expensive, but this bag is just $150. It comes in fun colors and several shapes and sizes, and you can even have it monogrammed in gold letters for just $10 extra, which also makes it quite a nice holiday gift.
