They say the eyes are the window to the soul. Ok, yes, I agree – that and maybe the fabulous sunnies that frame the eyes. I think a handbag is the window (ok well maybe a sneak peak!) into a girl’s style.
For me bags are the stylish baggage of life’s frivolous adventures. The aubergine suede and dark leather satchel bought with relish to replace the bag broken from too much dance floor fun with FAB friends in Rome. The small soft red leather bag bought in Florence…purely because I wanted it. Bags not only show a girl’s style but also carry memories. Bags are the patchwork of style, practicality and memories.
Like shoes…a gal can never have too many bags…it’s all about choice my dears, choice! It’s all about finishes and embellishments when it comes to bags right now.
Oroton, who I daresay rarely put a foot wrong is this department, are the go to when it comes to the oversized clutch (may I introduce to you the stylish gal who takes her clutch to work, but then heads to cocktails with the girls after work) A4 in size – perfect for work and play. Glomesh and animal print panelling are key at the moment.
The larger-styled tote (introducing the gal who sees her bag as the one stop shop for EVERYTHING, also may a traveller with a big tote doubling as hand luggage too!) is FAB in a rectangular style with a self-patterned crocodile print. Black is the colour for this multifunctional piece – love LIFEwithBIRD‘s Max Zip Tote.
The bucket bag is perfect for practical everyday use. This bag works for the gal who doesn’t want to switch between a weekday and weekend bag (the ever practical gal). Witchery chic neutral bucket bags with long chain straps are just starting to trickle instore – chic and practical.
So whether your bag is because you just love it or whether it’s the carrier of memories, next time you see a girl’s bag you love – wonder what story the bag tells about them!
