20 Party-Ready Handbags for the Holidays

There’s always a reason to celebrate! Just like it’s always time for a drink or a cat video on YouTube – instead of working, of course. But the thing with party bags is that you never have a nice one, when you actually have a party to go to!

THAT’S WHERE HEY PRETTY COMES IN. Party season just has started and I want you to make a statement with your party handbag. Now you don’t have to hook up with your boss to get attention – all the attention will go to your new clutch, minaudière or crossbody bag.

These bags all have something in common: They want to go out with you!
