Fall comes around and we start to think about our wardrobe and what needs to be updated, but it's also an excellent time to think about a new handbag. I'm all for the trends and the "It" bags but I'm also one to make a case for a few that are timeless classics that could be worn every day of the year and look great regardless of the outfit. These are bags that you're going to have to spend more than a little to get a lot. Think of them as investments. They're not going out of style right away, if ever, so fork over a little more and reap the rewards of a well made bag that will endure. Here are my under $500 favorites.
