A tip: a red bag helps fight winter blues. True for me, at least. It is so icy and white here is almost opaque. I wear a ladylike, structured bag from Lanzetti. It cheers me a bit, like a delivery of fresh, crimson roses to my doorstep. Well, almost.
I added some punch to my winter white perforated skirt, with a black mock neck tee, and a red bag in textured hair calf, vegan, I think, with python trim bought years ago on eBay.
I also wore a lot of bling; rings in many colors, to keep some of the left over New Year’s sparkle directly in sight.
I wanted to provide some “shop-small” ideas of where to find a red bag. I started at Shoptiques for this, as it is a great source for many small boutiques. I love supporting small business, and I also like having something that is not something everyone will be wearing.
Choices 5 and 6 are also favorites of mine. The red bag from Cartier is a relative bargain from Tradesy, and is an enduring classic. Doctor bags are also a long time love, and this one, the Monalisa, is well made and distinctive.
Below, two luxe bags that I had to include. One is a newer model by Hermés called the Halzan mini bag, -7- it has a unique equestrian flair that is the trademark of Hermês. Swoon worthy , right? The second is a favorite, somewhat-under-the-radar bag for luxe lovers; the Mark Cross Grace bag, -8- .
So how are you enduring the cold, or the heat wave? It seems that most are dealing with one extreme or the other.
Would you carry a red bag, or do you stay with the more classic colors of black and brown. Which of these bags speak to you?
I hope this week is a wonderful one for you!
