Macy’s Merchandise Expert Reveals Spring Handbag “Must-Haves”

It’s spring, time for reorganizing, cleaning and downsizing. That means an opportunity to part with those big, clunky winter bags that stored extra shoes, gloves and scarves, and transition to the latest trends for the season.

According to Devon Bitzer, executive My Stylist @ Macy’s, there are three “must haves” for spring 2016:

  1. The Mini Bag. They come in an array of dazzling colors and light weight designer brands perfect for work as well as casual outings.
  2. The Drawstring Bag. It has made a come-back! These bags are available in various sizes and shapes. The photo below shows a Fossil Jules Fringe Drawstring Bag.
  3. The Novelty Bag. Don’t be surprised to see the newest going-out bags in the shape of food or emblazoned with emoji’s on the outside. They are fun and whimsical.

Devon, whose career path started as a buyer and veered toward perfecting the personal shopping experience, recently toured the Macy’s handbag section with Purse Perfector Founder Lyn Marsteller. They started with a yellow Michael Kors XS Crossbody mini bag called the Ava Bag shown below. Lyn demonstrated how to easily divide a medium Purse Perfector in half for a small bag and voila! It fit inside like a glove. That’s when Devon got a revelation. “The Purse Perfector actually helps you decide what you really need to carry in your bag. My new motto is, ‘if it doesn’t have a place to go in the Purse Perfector, you probably don’t need it.’”

What about the drawstring bag? Can the Purse Perfector fit as snuggly with that purse’s structure? “I was impressed with the material that the Purse Perfector is made of,” says Devon. “It molds to the shape of the drawstring bags beautifully.”

“It’s nice to know that you can unzip a Purse Perfector and place it in any purse,” concluded Devon. “I just love the convenience it brings to me and to my clients.”
