Nothing like retail therapy to cheer oneself up... right :)
One of the elements of my wardrobe that I have been slowly addressing over the past 12 months is my handbags:) I haven't posted much on it, but I have purged and now have a collection of nice quality handbags. I probably still have more than I really want to have, but I am working on that.
A wardrobe hole I felt I recognised was for a more structured leather bag, primarily for work. I have been carrying the lovely slouchy black tote my sister gave me for my birthday quite a lot, but I feel taking it to work all the time is going to dull my passion for it. Also I like a nice structured bag for meetings and when I travel for work, as my outfits tend to be more "suit" based for these occasions. (It's also so much easier to find things in a more structured bag) Ok, so therein lies my logic for the purchase.:)
Making myself accountable to you, I must disclose that I have a similar bag, but smaller in a patent leather. It' doesn't get used a lot but I do love it. It's a little more of a ladies that lunch type bag, if you know what I mean. I use it on occasions where I need to present in a little more of a classic style.
I think this new bag will work with my style, adding structure to the strong unstructured elements of my general style.
So there is my justification!! But what do you think?
#1 - #3 New bag
#4 - #6 New bag with older bag for comparison.
Appreciate your opinions.
