Bags..best kept Secrets!!! by Butz Fuentes, the Stylemonger himself!
Diamonds, they say are the girls’ best friend…maybe to some, but when best friends leave and despise you, there is always “someone” that is always there for you..a safekeeper, a silent companion to share with you…your secrets, fears and joy.
Bags are the real best friends. Be it a killer bag, an arm candy or an emotional pandora’s box….it’s a private cocoon where everything a woman defines herself…personally, individually.
More than bags, they are your toys to hug, cushions to rest your head on, statements to make your presence felt and ideal companions for your activities or soirees. Classic leather and canvas lend art to dressing, literally. Digital prints, colour blocking, sequins, fringes, rivets, quilting and paint splashes see you through business, events and parties.
This season, it is not only about what you carry, it is about how you carry them. Practice your stance with the holdall, the clutch, the vanity purse, the rucksack, the doctor bag and the envelope, because each is different.
This is where carriage is most important. To clutch it, to swing it, to sling it, to shoulder it, to dangle it, to use one hand or two? Hint – comfort. Whatever feels right looks right, with some cardinal rules, of course. It is all about shape and dimensions. Sometimes, small is deceptive and there is more than enough room for basic knick-knacks and some additional junk. New shapes, handle-to-clutch options, quirky fasteners and eye-catching embellishments add an edge.
Instantly making you feel feminine, these little wonders require some holding practice. Take your pick from candies, envelopes or trinket cases, with or without metal chain handles. Some may be skeptical about their functionality, but these will see you through many an evening, with your basic essentials. And if someone misbehaves, a hard hit on the head should set things right….. !!!
Here are women I had chosen to share to us their best kept little secrets inside their friendly…bags.Curiously, I asked top ten essentials they can’t leave without…and amusingly, I enjoyed the share….hope you can share the same too.
Thanks Butz for including me on the list even though my bag is not an hermes 🙂
