Fashion Over Reason: I Dream A Dream

I Dream A Dream

Bags are not my thing. They're just not. I don't really care about having a statement slung over my shoulder, I don't really notice them on other people, I never fall short in my tracks when I spot a purse masterpiece... It really takes a lot for me to covet one. In my eyes, a satchel is far more utilitarian than anything and you'll most likely find me wearing a ratty canvas tote on any given day. I have one evening bag, my trust Bottega Veneta cross-body intrecciato, which has served me quite well over the years. You know exactly which one I'm speaking of, it's in literally in all of my outfit posts.

I'm sad to say that I think the time has come to start looking for a sidekick to BV. Not because I want to replace it, no sir, no ma'am. It's far too perfect and classic to ever put it to the side. But I need to give it a little break because it's showing signs of, um, aging, and I want to slow that down a bit. Getting a new bag to share the burden of wear could be considered as BV's youth serum, you know?

So while it takes a lot for me to actually fall in love with a handbag, I've had much time to think about what I'm looking for and what I want. Below are the contenders. Thoughts?

Proenza all the way. It's such a timeless classic, it goes well with both practical and elegant outfits, and I love it to bits! The other bags are beautiful too, but I'm not the biggest fan of label flashing...not that I mind on other people, but for myself I prefer pieces that only connoisseurs recognize ;)

all of them are lovely!
a black bag always comes in handy...

I've never been crazy about bags, sometimes I wish I don't have to carry them with me at all...other times, I really feel like they make a difference- it all depends I guess.
