Choosing the right bag

Lets face the truth...we all have weaknesses. For some it’s coffee, shoes and puppies but for others...well its bags. As we skim through blogger accounts on Instagram in search of inspiration (and the perfect bag) we wonder, is it really possible? Does the perfect bag exist or is there more than one true love?

In my books there is a certain ‘code of conduct’ when entering the cyber world of shopping - especially when you know you have a slight addiction. So keep your focus on quality rather than quantity ladies, Because if you get it right you will feel your absolute best!

We don't have to tell you this, because there is a chance you already know, that the kind of bag you carry says a lot about your style, career and lifestyle! Before we get into the nitty-gritty of choosing the right bag, determine your budget - based on your price per wear! 

Shape me!
Did you know that a handbag can flatter your shape almost as much as the right pair of jeans? In general, the rounder your figure, the more structured your bag should be.
So, if you have small, boy hips, having a bag which sits on your hips will make your shape look more feminine. If you have large hips, try a bag which sits at your waistline, accentuating the tapering of your waist and making you look slimmer. It’s all about perception ladies!  
Style !
We strongly advise you to think about your general style before investing your money! Sometimes we can get carried away with how things look like on models with legs for days and a perfect tan… Find exactly what suits you and your needs.

If you usually wear casual clothes, going for a very formal handbag is not a good idea! This can be tricky, so make sure you do a bit of research, at the moment we are absolutely in love with our Eight in Black. It is the ultimate utility bag. Versatility and functionality is key elements of this beauty, either for a formal meeting or a casual stroll. It can be worn in many different ways, and it will even fit a 13” laptop!

If you are on the other side of the spectrum, and you mean business, the Bank is something to consider.

This practical mid-sized design is perfected with internal card and mobile compartment. You can even attach the optional adjustable shoulder strap to keep your hands free for a coffee or your cell phone!

Keep it neutral!

No matter what size or shape your investment bag is… you want to get as much wear out of it as possible! No need to mention you want it to go with as many outfits as possible. Depending on what colour palette your wardrobe is, tend to go for bags in tan and black (we also recommend bordeaux if you are adventurous with your colour choices).
Neutral bags will remain classic, the colour will never go out of style, and they can be paired with almost anything. Choose the right bag, and it will complement many looks – from jeans and t-shirts to your favourite black dress.

Material & Quality are key!

It’s absolutely essential that you search for quality. The best you can afford. You don’t want your bag to be delicate and precious, because you’ll be too scared of damaging it, and won’t use it to the maximum.

We are absolutely obsessed with our nappa leather bags! They are all crafted in smooth nappa leather, durable and designed to last. They are slightly more structured as opposed to super soft leather bags, ideal for the ultimate working woman!

Happy shopping ladies!!
