A small harmful handbag

It often happens that things that we buy as the most win-win accessory, which should serve us for many years and fit any outfit, play a cruel joke with us. I already wrote somewhere that black shoes and a black bag, in fact, do not adorn any image. In the worst case, they immediately kill him. At best, nothing is added to it, so you have to keep going through the wardrobe, looking for things that would enrich the chosen outfit. Because of this, the image can become overloaded, devoid of harmony. Bright, contrasting shoes and a handbag work for you, creating a relaxed image that does not need to be painfully “decorated” with a belt, a scarf, a massive necklace or something else. Today we will talk about a small handbag, which is very popular in our latitudes. Here it is in different (though identical) guises:
In General, you understand. Such a wallet with a chain (and if without it, it is, sorry, just a wallet that someone is trying to pass off as a bag, which is very funny), usually in the form of an envelope, but there are options. Usually made of smooth leather or Morocco, or lacquered. Plain or from a pattern with logos. Often they try to buy it, because a small handbag is the only available option for a well-known brand, all other products of which are much more expensive. And, as you can guess, this is the first reason why you don’t need to buy it. It gives a very well-read signal:”there was not enough money for more.” If there is no doubt about your financial viability, then the signal is even more offensive:”there was not enough taste and imagination for more.”

The second reason is already indicated by me in the introduction — a neutral and very modest handbag, no matter how luxurious the label on it is, will not decorate any of your outfit. Perhaps she is able to balance the bold images of street style stars, when a skirt is worn over trousers, a coat backwards, and a watch on the leg. But how many of us dress like this? With the usual city wardrobe, this handbag will look both lonely and pretentious.

And, according to tradition, the examples of good small bags. Yes, they can be expensive (if you can) or quite democratic (but high-quality!). Let fabric, not leather, or plastic. Do not deny yourself a bright accessory! Let a few decide to wear a statement coat or a dress combination with a green fur coat. But an ironic, bright handbag is what almost any wardrobe needs. One example is the YSL bag. All its difference from the same YSL, given as an example of “how not to”, in the processing and drawing. Bold ironic stars are much better than “win-win” smooth black skin.
