Cadillac purses were probably my first fashion obsession (and I’d love to be a handbag designer if I had any design talent). Prior to shoes, I had a handbag fixation that began throughout my university years.
I have a large assortment of handbags and enjoy mixing and matching them with different outfits. And as I’ve purchased different bags throughout the years, I’ve had some hits and misses. As a result, I thought I’d share some of my thoughts on what makes a wonderful Cadillac handbag that is both functional and attractive.
1. Check to See If The Cadillac Purse is Easy to Carry
Yes, a purse, like your apparel, must provide a level of comfort that you are satisfied with. Gucci had a major sale in Melbourne many years ago (something they would never do anymore because it “dilutes” the brand). The first time I ordered one, I noticed was how well it fit under my arm and sat on my shoulder without falling off. “No surprise people generally spend so much for this kind of amazing design,” I remember thinking.
So, when you try on a Cadillac purse, pay attention to whether it pushes your arm out in an uncomfortable way. Is it too easy for it to fall off your shoulder? Is it necessary for you to hold it by the handles, which isn’t your style?
We can like the look of a handbag, but if it isn’t comfortable to carry about (and you will be carrying it around a lot and sometimes for extended amounts of time), we will rapidly grow to dislike it.
2. Check to See Whether The Cadillac Bag is Too Heavy
I like Cadillac leather purses since they can be improved if they become scratched (which they will), unlike all the synthetic leather handbags. This means that, like a fine pair of leather shoes, I may polish my Cadillac leather handbag, extending the life of my investment. However, when some leather handbags are empty, they may be quite heavy, which means that as soon as I put my kitchen sink in the bag, I’ll be lugging 45kg on my shoulder. This is not healthy for my back (or mood).
So put the bag to the test and see how hefty it is. That added metal accent can sometimes add to the weight of a bag, making it impractically heavy.

3. The Appropriate Pockets Of The Purse
Is it just a space on the interior or does it include pockets? What kind of pockets does it have, and how many are there?
What you enjoy will be unique to you. I’ve realized that I don’t care for a center divider pocket, but I do prefer a pocket where I can stash a few pens, a glasses cleaning cloth, and other little items. I like a pocket where I can put my phone, and I really enjoy a zip-up pocket on the exterior where I can put my car keys. This Cadillac bag is ideal because it features compartments on the inside as well as the outside, front and back!
I enjoy lots of card compartments in a smaller clutch or evening bag because I don’t want to carry around my usual wallet, but it’s handy to have a credit card and a few other items (like my driver license in the olden days when I was “carded” because I looked too young to buy a glass of wine!). My Cadillac set below, going with a matching wallet, features a lot of card slots and a wonderful zip-up part.
In an evening purse, I like a zip pocket because that’s where I’m most likely to keep my money. There must also be enough room for lipstick, reading glasses, a phone, and keys. There’s nothing more annoying than an evening purse that doesn’t have enough room for your things.
4. Zip The Purse Up
I prefer a Cadillac handbag that can be entirely zipped or closed. This would help nothing fall out if it falls over while I’m traveling. Having a zip closure, especially on totes and larger bags, makes a difference for those occasions when you need to be able to securely close your bags to keep your contents safe.
5. Make Your Cadillac Purse Look Nice
Then there’s the aesthetics. I have to like it on a visual level as well. I believe in combining form and function rather than prioritizing one over the other. One approach is through color, which is why I have a variety of colored bags. A handbag’s design might be pretty simple if it’s in a stunning color – the color is the star.
However, if you want a Cadillac black handbag, it should have some additional design aspects to make it more appealing. Black and plain equals drab, uninteresting, and unfashionable.
Design embellishments turn a potentially boring black clutch into a work of beauty and a conversation starter. Make your purse the star of your outfit if it’s simple.

6. Make Your Cadillac Purse Multi-functional
Although there are bags for specialized reasons (such as an evening bag), if you just have one bag that you wear with everything – to everywhere – every day, it must be versatile in design.
- The purse should be dressy enough to go with your job clothes.
- The materials should be soft enough to go with your everyday attire.
- The color should match your color scheme so that it doesn’t clash with your ensemble.
How do you pick a Cadillac purse that works with everything? Begin with a color that is a reflection of your hair. This is a color you’ll never get rid of. Because you wear your hair all the time, it’s a perfect color for handbags, shoes, coats, and belts, which are the pieces of outfits that “go over” many other clothing.
7. The Best Colors For The Purse
Black is a safe bet because it will always go with whatever you’re wearing on any given day. However, if you wear a lot of the same hues, you could want to match or complement your fashion clothes. What are some of your favorite color combinations? Earth tones, soft orange, browns, beiges, whites, taupe, dark reds, and so on, all of which will be complemented by a deep orange-red or wine-colored handbag.
If you like blue jeans, a deep blue or dark green bag would be a stylish addition to your ensemble. Green, brown, teal, and metallic are all colors that may be worn with every color of apparel and at any time of year.
My greatest suggestion is to consider comfort, functionality, design, and size well before you go shopping. This will help you find exactly what you need in half the time!
8. Purse Material Of The Year
Yes, you must now choose between real leather and a man-made leather alternative. Many individuals are now averse to wearing genuine leather because it is made from the skin of an animal and is used to make a fashionable outfit, bag, or pair of shoes. Each individual will determine whether or not they object to this. What I can say with certainty is that leather is extremely heavy to carry, even when empty. Therefore, remember to avoid leather purses if you do a lot of walking and don’t want a hefty weight hanging off your shoulder.
Synthetic materials are substantially lighter and come in a wide range of quality and resemblance to leather. If you take the time to hunt for them, you can find some excellent imitation leather handbags. If you reside in a warm region, you may make an everyday handbag out of the canvas, raffia, straw, bamboo, and a variety of other materials. Consider durability and whether these lightweight materials are likely to survive in good condition, or whether you only want a fashionable style that will last a season or two.
