Who's That Girl??

I've always had a special place in my heart for accessories. And there is something to be said for a woman who walks in a room with a knock-out purse. It's a statement about her. It's a way she commands attention. And well, it's a carry-all for her life, too.

I'm a firm believer that every woman should own a purse that withstands the trends- a classic in time. It's often that these kind of "statement" bags are more expensive, yes, but their long term status can be powerful. So take a moment and consider, do I have a purse that says "classic" "timeless" "powerful"?

What makes a statement bag, you ask? Allow me...
  • A signature design. Louis Vuitton, Prada, and Chanel are unmistakably identifiable. You know it, you see it, you love it.
  • It's usually leather- preferably Italian leather. (not trying to make a plug for my ancestral heritage here...) And it feels like butter.
  • It doesn't have heavy hardware. The bag speaks for itself. It doesn't need additional accessories; it IS the accessory.
  • It's of a color that transcends your wardrobe. Sure, black and brown are obvious, but a deep rich purple, or emerald green would make someone look twice at your arm.
I realize it's a recession- but seriously, ladies, save your money. $25 a month over a year, and you have yourself a nice cushion of money to buy THE purse you always wanted. And if you're smart- it's a one time purchase. This purse will outlast every $30 bag you pick up at Marshall's, Target or TJ Maxx. Believe me, people will notice and ask, "Who is that girl?" (with the great bag!)
