When I started Bag Snob, it wasn’t about trying to be a snob about anything. I just wanted to have fun indulging in extravagance to fill my free time, and who wouldn’t right? It’s like when you have guests over for dinner. You don’t serve diet cake. You bring out the most decadent chocolate fudge cake! If you ever meet me you will see that I am by far the un-snobbiest person out there. My point is, you obviously do not need to be a label whore to be stylish and chic. It is almost the opposite. I mean, do I own a Birkin, Chanel, Bottega, etc? Yes, but I never do head-to-toe in it. And I feel like I am cheating when I use my bags as the center piece. All you need is a good bag, but to really be hip, it takes a bit more than that.
You certainly do not need to spend thousands to achieve true style. If you can walk in to TJ Maxx and come out with a fabulous outfit, you have way more clue than anyone living on Park Ave. Not that this MICHAEL Michael Kors clutch is the answer to economic bohemian chic, but I love that it has personality and that’s the key to everything. The cutout handle is all rage (yes, still), and haircalf is considered an exotic (at least it is not traditional leather, and that’s really the crux of the “exotic” trend). I am not an animal print girl, but this is a small bag (12 3/4″ x 8 1/2″) so it just adds a splash of it for some fun. For $348 you get a bag that is on-trend, functional, and can be made all your own. On Vivre.com.
