It's in The Bag

When I was growing up, my Grandma would always tell me, "We carry our lives in our handbags". That phrase has always held a sort of fascination for me. Maybe that is why I own more purses then I do clothes.

For years it seams that bags have served as status symbols for those who carry them. A girl could be wearing head-to-toe Target while carrying an iconic CHANEL bag and be the most stylish girl in the room. When I style, I always advise my clients to invest in an amazing bag that will outlast any trend.

Every season we see new and fresh variations of the classics. This fall it's about bold hues, wild prints, fun textures, tough hardware and the return of the shoulder bag. Make sure you choose a look that fits your lifestyle and frame. If you're a petite flower, you don't want to look like you're hauling around a suitcase everyday. Similarly, if your a tall drink of water you don't want to tote around a bag the size of a small dog.

It's all about finding the handbag that's right for you!

Bag it Up

  4. i'm petite but i love big totes/accessories sometimes. i can't help myself.

    & your grandmother is wise! i love that quote and i may have to use it sometime now.

    the only bag i'd really want and want to invest in is the ysl muse. that's been my love since day 1.

    thanks for this amazing post! x.

  5. That's so true when it comes to bags;) Love the studded ones recently;)

  6. I agree. The bag really does make the outfit. This might sound weird, but sometimes when I'm dressed really casual in jeans and a t-shirt, I still feel glamorous because I'll be carrying one of my Chanel or Prada bags. Haha.

  7. So true Jennifer! A great bag dresses up your whole outfit and makes a fashion statement even if the rest of your clothes are "dressed down".

    Thanks for the comments guys!
