Shoes this, shoes that…yes they might look pretty on Sarah Jessica Parker but for us stiletto-wearing amateurs the picture isn’t quite so perfect. Don’t get me wrong, I love shoes as much as the next girl but oh goodness do they cause me pain?!… So I tend to opt for the bag department. Bags give me very little grief, they don’t hurt, they don’t give me blisters they don’t see me through the day and then to A&E, they are just fabulous. And yes some may argue that bags can trouble your back and shoulders but I don’t have that worry, my purse isn’t quite heavy enough to cause such kind of bodily damage.
So I’m on ‘Team Bag’, sorry shoes. The quirkier the bag the better, dull lifeless accessories might look ‘fine’ and serve their purpose but ‘fine’ doesn’t really accessorise your personality. Not that I’m the next Kate Moss or anything but I’m pretty sure she would back me up on this one…colour and character makes a bag worth buying, isn’t that right Moss? (She agrees).
You’re going away for the weekend, spending some time in the city and you need the perfect bag. Sometimes practicality and style don’t easily go hand in hand…but not to worry, I’ve found just the gem! A bag that not only ensures security and space, but is also chic, stylish and quite simply divine!
