I’ve recently been feeling guilty about wanting to purchase new clothes or accessories. As I’ve discovered my passion for social justice and humanitarian crises, wardrobe additions seem exceptionally trivial. There are people living in extreme poverty and war-torn countries and citizens are being killed everyday, but here I am browsing my online cart full of pretty blouses and strappy shoes. Don’t I sound horrible? However, I’m learning that me buying a bag won’t help those people just as much as not buying a bag will. Does that make sense? So for today, I’m going to share the handbags on my wishlist…and that doesn’t make me a bad person. Tomorrow, I will go back to my daily browsing of Shaun King articles and I will continue to become a better advocate of equality and justice while looking stylish at the same time.
I love every piece that rag&bone brings out and the ‘Pilot’ Lambskin Leather Satchel is a classic shoulder bag for any season. I love how it combines suede and leather while its shoulder strap hits at the waist. I would pair this purse with a monochrome outfit: black tank, ripped jeans and leather boots for an edgy fall look. The Kate Spade Arbour Hill Lilah snuck up on me when I spotted it in the brand’s seasonal surprise sale. I used to dislike navy pieces, but I’ve found that it’s one of the most versatile and neutral shades to have in a wardrobe. This one might become a new addition to my closet if I’m feeling up to it! The Saint Laurent ‘Baby Sac de Jour’ Bonded Leather Tote is my dream bag and it now comes in pink- so dreamy! I would style this purse with a denim dress and a motorcycle jacket. Another favorite suede find is the Tory Burch ‘Small Marion’ Suede Shoulder Bag (again in navy). Flap bags are functional on a daily basis and this rich shade is the perfect color for fall.
