As I said on Instagram: wool coats and classic bags are like turtlenecks and chains but different. By this I mean it looks polished and is nothing like turtlenecks and chains. I was just trying to be funny.
Anyway, I have found that having a classic looking bag is way more practical for my lifestyle than trendy bags because a timeless piece is timeless. I have a lot of trouble spending money on items that I feel will be a short lived buy ie something that is aggressively trendy or made cheaply. My bank account doesn’t always love my splurging for better made clothes, but I do. Life is too short for cheap bags.
