When it comes to choosing the perfect bag, three things always come to mind: versatility, functionality, and of course, the look. I want a bag that I can wear everywhere, one that never weighs me down and wears me out just by lugging it around. I absolutely despise having to constantly switch out shoulders because my bag is so heavy. And, who wants a disgusting red mark around their neck where their bag has constantly rubbed into their skin all day? That’s never cute. Trust me.
I wore a Steve Madden bag the other day when my hubby and I went Christmas shopping in New Orleans. After a few hours of switching back and forth, left shoulder to right shoulder over and over again, well..let’s just say it wasn’t exactly pretty. I thought intensely about tossing the bag but then I realized it can still be used as a clutch. I won’t give up hope on it just yet.
The bag pictured above is one that the Melie Bianco team was sweet enough to send me (thanks guys!) I’ve been eyeing their beautiful bags in People Style Watch for months. I usually keep my magazines for forever and skim through them to get style inspiration. I’ve been running back into the same Melie Bianco bag every time I pick up a certain favorite issue of mine. I was so excited to receive it but even more excited about it once I tried it on. If there were ever a lightweight bag, this has to be the one. Plus, it’s the perfect size for the nights when I don’t feel up to carrying my full-size bag. It easily fits all of my necessities: phone, keys, powder, gloss/lipstick, and concealer as well as my ID, debit & credit card. I’m sure I could quite possibly fit even more than that but I’m not one to overload bags. If you’ve seen my bag, you know I’m obvi kidding – it’s LOADED to the max!
I don’t really feel like you need a reason to buy this bag. It’s versatile, functional, and GORGEOUS. I especially love the studs mixed with the bright fuchsia! What more of a reason could you need?
Which one is your favorite?
