Dear Pinelle, today I want to talk about accessories, and particularly about the object that every woman wants: “the bag” 🙂 It makes our outfit different, but it is able to define and personalize our style. An object full of history and a source of inspiration to tell the women’s world. I often have fun watching some movies and TV series where the value of the relationship between bags and women is enhanced, even a particular model, shape and color, they really define our personality.
I think about one of my favorite TV series, “Sex and the City” and particularly about a sentence that truly says something about the relationship women have with their bags:
“I’m thinking balls are to men, what purses are to women. It’s just a little bag but we’d feel naked in public without it.”
Even an instrument of seduction, a purse tells a lot about us, our lives, our job and how we relate with our boyfriends or husbands. When I want to laugh with Paolo we watch a romantic comedy “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” and there is a sentence that says “Guys, a woman’s purse, alright, it’s her secret source of power. Alright? There are many dark and dangerous things in there, that we, the male species, should know nothing about.”
Just like that, purses are a mania and wearing them is like telling something of us and our lifestyles… an English tabloid said that now a day bags are lighter. Two years ago, according to this research, a purse of a multitasking woman weighted 3kg and 200 grams, and now it’s 1.5 kg. Lighter and smaller too.
One of this spring summer trends is truly the “Mini bag mania”. Colored, casual, elegant, with a lot of style…and there are a lot of different models, from camera bags to bucket ones or the purses that look like a briefcase, like the ones we used to go to school with. Even if now they are much smaller…
There are amazing models, a MUST HAVE for this season:
The Mini Falabella by Stella McCartney, blue sky and stars for a dreamy bag. Casual and stylish, you can combine it with an elegant or casual outfit. Any color or dress will be enhanced by this it bag. Or the Miss Sicily Mini by Dolce & Gabbana, available also in metallic, and the beloved Lock shoulder strap, with studs by Valentino.
But don’t worry Pinelle, there are also low cost models that are really amazing like the ones by Zara, Esprit, Banana Republic or the Fossil’s ones, very pretty and creative. And you know I love different colors and fantasies and I like to combine my mini bags or extra-large ones by Marks and Angels, full of colors and fantasies, with total black looks.
Elegance, charm, but also less space. We have to re-organize our spaces and reduce the object that we would like to bring with us. Is there something you need to have in your bags? Never without lipstick and then we can add a smartphone and then? What would you bring in a mini bag Pinelle?
