So Christmas is officially over. The whole 2016 is officially over. I hope you had a wonderful year and hope this year will be even better. Beginning of a new year is always the same (at least for me). It is all about starting again with the healthy food and fitness regime after rather indulgent festive season. I am not much into the new years resolution as I believe that if you want to do something you will do it and you don’t need a new year for that. This time of the year is very quiet, but never the less there is one excitement going on and that is called SALES! This is the time of the year when you can get overly excited about getting the best handbags deals. View Post
We have all been there. You wake up in the morning and have absolutely no idea what to wear. You look in to your wardrobe and you see nothing – well your boyfriend/ husband sees wardrobe full of clothes, but for some reason you see absolutely nothing! After a bit of a struggle you finally make up your mind and put a decent outfit together (your husband convince you that actually there are clothes in your wardrobe), but now get the right with bag.
You are thinking about the day you will have – work, business lunch, again work and straight to dinner with friends. You want to look smart for the work day and chic for the evening. Then you see the perfect bag on the top shelf. It is a all day cross body bag – not too big (you don’t want to show up at dinner with a luggage size bag, right?) but not too small (you still need to fit there basics to go through the day).
I have been thinking about what makes a cross body bag perfect for the breakfast to dinner day. I came up with not one but few good reasons.
Tom Ford, ever since establishing his own label has represented luxury and quality worth paying for. Over the years, his designs haven’t changed dramatically and we are thankful. It is all about a clean cut, simplicity and perfection. The same rules apply to his collection of handbags. Lots of celebrities choose his bags over and over again. Jennifer Aniston in particular is such a long time loyal customer, that one of the designs is named after her – the Jennifer bag!
But what is so special about it? There is something about its simplicity that makes me excited whenever I see one. Or maybe it is that this bag is one of those that you don’t always spot at the first sight when someone is wearing it. It is not a flashy design, but when you see one, you know that this person wearing it has great taste.
My absolute favorite is the one from Python skin. What a combination! A bag with a very informal design, a bag that is clearly to wear during the day, with a cross body adjustable strap and zip on the bottom bit to be able to enlarge the inside volume on the top of that. Now all that informality is changed to a completely different level by using the super-luxury material of Python skin. View Post
