Finding the right handbag for your lifestyle

Handbags – what would we do without them? To keep all of our essentials at hand, it is important to find a handbag that is both functional and stylish. Meeting all of your criteria is definitely a challenge, but if you follow a few simple tips, you won’t ever go wrong. Second Time Around offers the best selection of vintage handbags for you to choose from, and we will work to make sure your expectations are met. Here are a few things to think about:


Where are you taking your bag? What items are absolutely essential in your day-to-day life? It is common to have different bags for different purposes, so when making your next decision think about whether you’re looking for a bag to take to work, or one to carry around town. Different pockets and compartments can make organizing easier. Bigger is always better, as far as carrying capacity goes, but do you really want to carry a suitcase everywhere you go? It all depends on your lifestyle.

For your body

Generally speaking, you want to find a bag that compliments your body type. What this means is shorter women will benefit from carrying a longer bag, whereas taller women should steer towards a more round design. Another good rule of thumb is to choose a handbag that hangs in the middle of your torso, to best compliment your natural features.


You don’t want a bag that clashes with your outfit, so it’s important to find a style that is versatile but also appropriate. Are you looking for a more elegant bag to bring to dinner parties or nights out on the town? Or maybe you need something that will stand up to all of your daily challenges? Again, it all comes down to context. Having a few options to choose from is never a bad thing.
