Designer Handbags. I am a true believer that a girl can never have enough handbags. You need sophisticated bags for work, cute but functional diaper bags, colorful clutches, sparkling evening bags, save the planet grocery bags, and of course those pesky “just because I can’t live without it” handbags. Whether it’s the latest YSL bag or a few colorful totes from Target – go ahead and indulge. In the spirit of giving back, think about donating a new backpack to a child in need every time you splurge on a fabulous new designer bag for yourself.


FEED 2 Kenya Bag

I traveled to Kenya as a teenager and found it to be a breathtaking country full of vibrant and charming people. I even helped build a chicken farm out of cow dung! I saw first hand how hungry many of the children were. I am thrilled to see the FEED 2 Kenya Bag (love the beading!!) and hope sales of the bag are able to raise lots of money to feed many wonderful Kenyan children.

FEED has been selected as a featured Sweet Peas & Stilettos *Shop for a Good Cause* and *Go Green* organization.

Vintage & Second Hand Designer Handbags

If you are in the market for a vintage bag or second hand designer handbag, there are many options out there including auctions and consignment shops. If you would rather not spend seven years on a waitlist for your own Hermés Birkin bag, this might just be the way to go. A number of these sites actually research the authenticity of the product so you can feel more confident that you are getting the real thing. Take a look at what these companies have to offer:

Rent a Fabulous Bag

Who knew you could rent a handbag? I knew you could rent a car, or an apartment, but I never thought about renting a purse. If you have a short attention span when it comes to handbags, you simply can’t decide on just one, or you can’t swallow the idea of spending over $1000 on a single purse, why don’t you try out one of these handbag rental options.
