When it comes to styling, planning and coordinating fashion pieces are very important. It´s like a Science, it involves thinking and analyzing. However, no matter how carefully you planned an outfit, if you´re bag is questionable, it will create second thoughts. An outfit isn´t great if you don´t complete it with a great bag.
What is a great bag? The definition of what is a great bag may defer on persons and it largely depends on what makes her happy. But for me, a bag is great if it´s of good quality, it´s stylish and elegant, it defines my personality, and it completes as many outfits as possible. Without denying, all of these qualities describe designer handbags.
There are two reasons why I covet designer handbags. First, when I wear an outfit, I know that other girls are quick to judge two pieces of what I wear – my bag and shoes. Even if my outfit combo is of branded pieces, if my bag is looking cheap, the entire outfit only causes people to double take. But even if my outfit combo is made of thrifted pieces, with a designer handbag, and well, great shoes, everything seems designer.
Second, designer handbags are made to last. They´re created for how much they´re worth. Their materials are carefully chosen and they´re usually creatively crafted. No matter how simple the handbag is, you can always tell if it´s designer. If you take good care of it, it can end up as a family legacy. Think of possibly giving it to your daughter, or your future granddaughter someday. What a fabulous bequest!
And by the way, don´t you just feel so confident carrying a designer handbag?
Now that you know the reasons why I adore designer handbags, don´t assume that I have lots of them. I don´t. Perhaps if I get rich, then I would make a collection of them. I hope it will be someday. For now, the number of my bags doesn´t equate a quarter of my shoes, I´m a very shoeholic. But I do have a couple of great handbags that always save me whenever it´s show time.
In choosing a designer handbag, I stick to neutral colors with simple but elegant design. They prove to be more outfits friendly, blending with more colors and outfit combinations.
So tell me Creative Fashionistas, why do you covet designer handbags?
