I think you can divide girls and women worldwide into two categories: those who love shoes and those who love bags… or maybe three, the third being those of you who love both shoes and bags equally… that’s when your earnings are in real danger or those
of your husbands’ (poor guys :) The only reason I love bags more, is because they don’t make me suffer :) You know that feeling when you love and hate your stilletos at the same time? I’m sure everyone has a pair of a kind in your dressing room. One of the most important elements in a bag’s design this year is apparently the chains and the studs, which this season are decorating every single article of a woman’s wardrobe. A very desired bag, this year, is Stella McCartney’s Falabella. Seems like half of the women in Padova have this bag and the other half were wishing for it as a present from Santa. Was their style inspired enough this year to deserve a 700 euro bag as a Christmas present? I’ll let you know soon :) You can find this bag in different colours and prints and it can be worn in two ways, folded over as a shoulder bag or as a han.
Here are some other bags’ designs who deserve a bit your attention.And the mother of them all is Chanel 2.55, a bag created to fulfill the needs of a modern woman inspired by the straps found on soldiers’ bags. With a history of more than half a century, Chanel 2.55 inspires nowadays designers and is still a symbol of luxury and style. You can choose a classic black or white 2.55 or you can play with colours and stiles and choose the Boy Chanel. Those of you who are more conservative can pick the Reissue 2.55.
Here is some street and party style with more affordable alternatives ;) You can go for Michel Kors’ Hamilton Large Tote and wear it at office or you can choose the small one for a more casual look.Here is a small bag for your nights out, Michael Kors Chelsea Small Messenger.
And guess what’s the best advantage? You can still break all the rules and wear these bags with high heels, boots, flats or loafers, casual shoes or even with sneakers all year long, no matter what. Each of these models can be found in both autumn/winter and spring/summer collections. You just need some imagination and a nice attitude… after all… it’s not about what you wear, it’s how you wear it ;) .
