Once the champagne popping and fireworks have concluded, the turn of the new year presents itself as an opportunity for all of us to wipe the slate clean. Once the clock strikes midnight, many of us decide it's time to rid ourselves of all the things that no longer align with our new sense of self that has arisen from all the lessons learned in the past year.
So if you find yourself in a state of reinvention and are in need of an "in with the new" to follow your "out with the old", rather than redecorating your bedroom or going on a deleting spree through your Facebook friends list, why not start with a new handbag?
Take a look at a few of the Couture USA team's top picks for the new year that are sure to make you want to tuck away that basic black tote for something a a little more refined to match the new and improved you!
