I'm not into lots of hardware and not really a massive fan of an obvious label stamped on the side; I don't think a neat little ladylike handbag suits my needs; a daytime clutch... oversized, supple and soft - perhaps; or a just large enough tote to fit everything in.
And although my current bag was definitely an investment piece purchased during a sale many years ago, it's just become a bit too scruffy underneath and I think I need something bigger. The leather and details have lasted and lasted through the rigour of daily commutes, a few holidays, numerous weekend outings and everything in between. Givenchy make a good bag (and a subtly stitched logo which I like!)
So I'm still looking; I think my preference is going to be for a tote - an interesting detail here or there, perhaps a bold, strong shape or a tiny bit of colour in the lining.
Wish me luck...Do you have a favourite bag in your life?
In the meantime, I'm going to caress and look after my current bag every day until I say adieu...
|This is the most beautiful perfectly coloured bag - I saw it|
in the city a few months ago - I just fell in love with it - sigh!
|A simple shape with a wow colour - I'd stick with black or neutral I think - but I like the simplicity - and of course|
it is Givenchy
|A classic roomy shape with a monochrome palette to suit all occasions|
|I love the simplicity here.|
|Beautifully soft, supple leather and interesting shape|
