Forget the little black dress, it's all about the little (or oversized) black bag. I believe every girl or guy needs to invest in a staple quality black bag. You know... one that is going to last you 5+ years instead of one season aka a $20 H&M purse (guilty). Black never goes out of style and it virtually goes with everything.
A black bag can be boring though, which is why I'm drawn to these five. A little touch of metal hardware and embossments goes a long way. Gold or silver zippers can make a bag stand out without being gaudy, like the purse I'm currently rocking seen in "What's in My Bag!". Textured leather can also spice up an otherwise plain black bag. Pebbled, snakeskin or perforated leather paired together is more interesting.
I'm a little obsessed with all of these bags, especially the Vlieger + Vandam. I just want to freak people out on the streets via this purse. Nobody gon' mess with you if they think you've got a knife (or a gun). Am I right?
