Do we need something new for every occasion? Probably not. But I can sympathise with those who want to change up their wardrobes for different events and work a fresh new look. Although, this shouldn’t necessarily mean having to buy something new each season. Why not invest in items that allow you to get creative and lend themselves to being accessorised and styled?
We are a generation who love to travel. Gap year travelling through India? Why not. Erasmus study abroad? Ok. Why do we browse flights every few months? To discover new places, to have wild adventures, to visit friends, to lose yourself, to find yourself, to inspire...
What's in a bag? Everything.
The handbag. Its contents is a collage of you and your life; your daily necessities, monthly treats and year on year memories. In those pockets we forget exist are month old cinema tickets, a crumpled easy jet boarding pass, a go-to lipstick, notebook with illegible scribbles, some flyer you grabbed exiting the tube, the list goes on. Of course larger, more accessible pockets have everything you need to function; keys, wallet, phone, flask, book. My point being, we girls love our handbags because they’re a little piece of us; a first aid kit, a daily ‘helping hand’ and let’s not forget, often the curiosity of our male friends.
And so, a handbag is many things because we’re constantly on the move; agreeing to last minute nights outs, and spontaneously buying. Our handbag needs to be both functional and stylish if it’s going to secure its place as our everyday accessory. I’ve recently discovered a brand which offers both these things.
