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.
