I'm a firm believer in a capsule wardrobe, mostly because I'm so picky when I shop for new pieces that when I finally do buy something new, I know I'm going to wear it over and over again. This rings especially true when it comes to my handbag. I want one that's going to bring me joy and look just as good as the day I bought for years to come. Naturally, I riffle through endless stylish, high-quality, and unique options before I land my pick.
It doesn't really get more unique than handmade, so for my next bag, I'm turning to Italy's destination for homegrown pieces: Mirta. I absolutely adore the shop's unique designs, and I love that each bag is made by one Italian artisan. It feels like buying a work of art—I guess because it is. I'm having a hard time choosing between a classic brown crossbody and a vibrant top-handle bag in one of this year's color trends, so I might have to get myself two. It is my birthday month and Mirta is available on The List with an exclusive offer of 20% off with a minimum purchase of $450 (just enter promo code WWW20).
