What is National Handbag Day?

You don’t leave the house without it. It’s the closet mainstay, completing an outfit while storing the day’s items. National Handbag Day celebrates these accessories that lend you poise as they carry your precious cargo.

The boundless varieties of handbags can suit any mood or use, from the daytime clutch to a spacious tote that holds everything plus a good book or a laptop.
