For a long time, I didn't put any effort into choosing my  handbags; I considered them an afterthought and didn't understand why so many women in fashion thought they were the ultimate accessory. I focused on my clothing and jewellery and had one or two basic bags that I'd use for months at a time. I'm not sure when exactly my mind changed, but I'm sure glad it did! I now love shopping for them and have totally seen how they can transform (and often make) an outfit. I like to inject some personality in my looks with  statement bags--the quirkier the better! Here are some of my recent faves:

Yes, we all need a  great black or  nude bag, but you should branch out and try  new colours! I love this  robin's egg blue satchel, and what makes it even better is the super oversized zipper and tag. If you're not ready to go too crazy with your bag, look for  fun details like these to subtly add some style.

I love an  oversized clutch! This  pastel pink one is great for Spring, and I'm always a sucker for accessories with words written on them. (This one has one side that says "All Dressed Up" and the other says "And Nowhere to Go.")  Bags with puns or sayings are a great way to have some fun with a look that's otherwise a bit boring.

Here's another one! Instead of an oversized clutch though, this one is actually a  coin purse. It's nice and small for a fancier evening out; just big enough for your credit card and phone. I love that this one is glittery and bejewelled. I smell a DIY project!

Speaking of fancy...this clutch is the definition of elegant. It's gold with (faux) pearls and other gemstones, and what really sets it apart are the long tassels! I knew immediately when I saw it that it was a must have. Don't think  these have to be reserved for special occasions--I actually love the juxtaposition of a casual outfit with a fancy bag. I was wearing it here with boyfriend jeans a t-shirt!

There are some great super casual options too--going to the gym or on an overnight trip? A  great duffle bag is essential. Call me juvenile if you will, but I love a  cute bag covered in my favourite cartoon character :) 
Whether you want to go this quirky or would rather stick to the classics with a twist, a fun bag is always an easy way to take your look up a notch (not to mention they make a great conversation starter)!
