Do you ever get the feeling that your bag wishes it was something else? Lately, I’ve noticed a number of clutches that seem to have minds of their own. As if they are not completely content to be themselves. I don’t know about you, but I appreciate a bag that doesn’t fantasize about being another object entirely.
Maybe it’s just the holiday mood speaking, but I’m currently really into oversized crystal embellishments. Lately, it’s the bigger, the better – which isn’t always the case! A bag like Miu Miu’s drawstring leather bag serves as a winning example of that mantra.
Hungry? Wear your lunch on your arm. Or even better, your favorite snack. The latest crop of kitschy-fun bags is setting out to make your mouth water. While most aren’t exactly appetizing, they do make for cute statement pieces that are well worth a giggle. So lighten up, eat up, and have some fun with this food for thought!
I recently attended the Katy Perry concert with my 10-year-old. Despite being the oldest person there amongst screaming preteens, I had the best bag in the whole place– one that left me hands-free to eat my cotton candy with one hand, while pumping my fist in beat with the other. In the spirit of being unencumbered and embracing the music, here are the top bags for concerts!
Forget trendy black and white for a minute. There’s nothing more luxurious – or timeless – than the juxtaposition of perennially chic black against rich, melting gold. It’s just the kind of decadence you want to celebrate around the holidays, when sequins, oversized jewels, and general excess are at their height.
Let it shine! It’s time to get festive for the holidays. This constant onslaught of festivities (and shopping and cooking and preparing) means it’s also a busy time of year, and a large, easy tote is just what’s needed right about now. L’Inde Le Palais’ soft, lightweight shopper strikes the right balance between practical and party-worthy.
Like pastel and bright hues, butterflies may initially seem better suited to make their first fluttery appearance in the springtime. But also like pastels and brights, they are so much more uplifting as we fall into the cold, dark months of winter.
