Bag lady


Can a mere accessory change the way you dress or at least how you feel about it? Since I acquired the Chloé, casual days took a more streamlined turn.  

I'm not over thinking it but when I include this bag to my outfits, I spontaneously go for more conservative than usual looks. Even when wearing sneakers and jeans, I feel more... ladylike.  

I pack lighter, stand straighter. Holding such a structured bag is very new to me, maybe it's the power of novelty and/or my clouded vision of first times bag-adoration so let's just say that I feel good!

  1. Such a lovely look - if I was still working in an office, I'd like to think that I would be working a look like this. I like the fact that the bag and the shoes don't match - gone are the days when I used to try and tie everything together - now I just grab the nearest bag to hand and head out the door. But I prefer to do that anyway. Do love the Marant jacket on you - the perfect size and fit.

    1. Thanks Sue! I used to be into that matchy thing too. Isn't it funny how the best revelations come when you just stop trying?

  2. I do think bags can change the mood of an outfit, and what I like about yours is that it has a ladylike flair but it isn't too far away from your style.

    1. I guess you must feel the same wearing your Chanel!

  3. I know what you mean! I have bags (and other pieces in my closet as well) that instantly make my outfits look (or at least feel) more put together and streamlined without looking like I'm chasing some sort of inauthentic look. Also really like the bag and coat!

    1. Thanks! I do get called a lot more Madame when wearing the Chloé that's for sure! Haha!

  4. Lovely look. The bag is definitely very elegant. I must invest my money in a good bag like yours instead of wasting it in a thousand little, irrelevant things... The jacket looks great too, by the way.
