Mama’s got a brand new bag! 🙂 I love nice handbags and have a bit of a collection that I enjoy. One color I was missing in my collection was red. I think I had looked this Fall for red bags until my eyes turned blood shot. ( ok, exaggeration) but I am picky on style and quality. I mentioned to hubby I would like a red bag- and over Christmas he surprised me with this beauty.- The Prada Vitello Daino Shoulder Bag. The mid-sized bag with leather bows and Italian leather was love at first sight!
Now, I did tell him to look on secondhand sites and Ebay as long as he knew it could be verified, and a “birdy” told me it was bought on The Real Real. I am a fan of secondhand shopping, and had been looking there at red bags. I have added some from The Real Real below in affiliate links. You can read the description as they list the condition of each bag.
Anyhow, I just love the blue-red bag and laugh at the lock, as I don’t keep many things locked in a bag.. unless some doggy raw hides and some makeup up constitutes something worth stealing! This color suits me more than an orange red, and I often prefer wearing this shade as well. The bows in the front are a pretty detail, and I love the clean lines of the bag otherwise.
Outfit/How Else You Could Style
You will see me wear this often, as I would look for a pop of color to wear with a more neutral look. I styled this black column look with my Poshmark purchase from last year, my cropped leopard jacket, Add a touch of color with my brooch, another way to add color to your neutral look.
i’m in LOVE with these wax modern coated black jeans from LOFT as they look like leather, and are made so well! They have more of a thickness to them than a previous pair I owned by them. They have stretch and are quite comfy!
If you go for all neutral shades, ( leopard is a neutral) then add color with your accessories. Some bold red earrings, a larger statement necklace, and/or of course, your bag.
With dressing in one color ( column dressing) another great option would be a kimono. You can see how I did this styling in this post with my Zara velvet kimono.
It seems this week was a bit about animal prints – yesterday’s post on snakeskin and today with leopard. Do you love it?
If I go for a red lip, it has to be a blue-red with my skin tone. I recently got my nails done for the Holidays using the dip powder in red. More on that later!:-)
