August Birthday Handbag Gift Guide

I have absolutely, positively no idea how it is August. I was staring at the calendar yesterday and realized that this is one of those years when time flies more than usual. The August birthstone is peridot, which appears in only one color, a light green. I’ve never been a huge fan of green handbags, but as I searched for the nine best on the market right now, I started to rethink my aversion to the shade.

Green is such a nice color, it works well whether you have light hair or dark hair and it compliments a variety of skin tones. Also, as much as adding a bright spot during summer is a nice touch, green works well with summer and fall wardrobes. So happy birthday August babies, I’ve rounded up the nine best green handbags in this August Birthday Gift Guide for you to ask for or buy for yourself!

    Peridot is not olive green. Its a light grass green to a kelly green.

    Vibrant without being neon, cool without being sullen. Wearing green symbolizes more than just a splash of fashion sense. It symbolizes the beauty of life and nature, being at peace with yourself and your surroundings. Green….the colour of trees. A fabulous green bag puts the soul at ease. But will the fabulous green around us survive our irresponsible ways? Gisele Bundchen to the rescue!

    The LV Neo Papillon GM bag in green from their pre-fall collection is a beautiful vibrant color–just love it!

  • Prism Couture

    I have a bit of a hard time matching green with my wardrobe, which is odd because I really love to wear cool toned colours, just not for my handbag. Do others feel the same way? xoxo
