Don't settle.

Heart Evangelista has finally shared her closet favorites! In the first part of the vlog series, she focused on her top bags and accessories.

The actress and style star is known for having an extensive collection of designer bags, so naturally, she had the best advice when it comes to buying an arm candy. "If you're just starting to collect bags, it's nice to take your time," she said. "You want each one to have a story," she added. Needless to say, we totally agree! You'll forever remember how much you worked hard to save up for your dream purchase, and this adds more value to the bag than its actual price tag.

"Stop settling for a bag that will make you say: 'I want this beautiful black bag, but it's too expensive. I'll just get this other bag.' No. Actually, you can achieve it. You just have to wait," she encouraged. "Even if you give yourself five years, if you just stop buying so many other black bags, you will eventually get your dream bag," she advised.


"Stop buying dupes. Just save for the real one."

"I mean, we all want the bag right now but you really just end up settling, and you wouldn't want to settle. When it comes to love life, you also don't want to settle. So, you just have to wait for the right one and you save up for it," she explained.

Well said, Heart! It's better to wait and save up for that ONE bag that you really like than to settle for a mediocre version of it. This way, you get to spend your hard-earned money on a special piece rather than an item that you don't really love or won't last long.
