When it comes to handbags I normally play it safe by picking a black one . Mainly because black goes with literally anything. But come on , wouldn’t it be nice to have some pop of colour (Farai actually made me think twice about getting bags in different colours other than black ). In as much as I would like that , I think it really depends on what sort of colour handbag it is. Which brings me to my latest edition to my collection. I went for red mainly because its oozes confidence and pizazz.
The other reason I went for this one in particular is because it reminds me of the YSL version. Granted , most designer bags like YSL are expensive but they are worth an investment I reckon. Sadly that bag is way beyond my budget so finding something close to it will do just fine .
Things to look out for when purchasing a new handbag:
When it comes to choosing a bag, there are two things you must think about – function and fashion, and always in that order. Function must be by far your primary concern, as without it there would be no point in having a bag at all. But it must also look the part and work for almost every occasion.
Get a bag relative to your size . If you are petite , don’t go for a bag you would fit in , instead look for something small – medium. If you Tall and slim, having a tiny bag would make you appear larger therefore you are better off with midsize, large and oversized styles.
Medium size is perfect for an everyday bag . Most of us ladies we carry all sorts in our bags from makeup bags , hair brush , antiperspirant etc. So it’s best to get a bag that will enable you to fit all that .
The exterior should be sleek and try not to go for those bags that look dead cheap because 99% of the time that bag won’t last long . So quality and appearance should be something to look out for .
