3.1 Phillip Lim’s Ryder satchel might be tempting, but multi-colored fur doesn’t exactly make for a wise long-term fashion investment. Instead, put your hard-earned dollars towards these pieces, all of which will last well beyond Fall 2013 (though if you can also afford to get the Ryder, it’s a pretty darn cool seasonal splurge!).
