A few evenings ago, I found myself in an interesting discussion on PurseForum started by a person wondering how often others are complimented by strangers. The incidence at which one is approached probably varies widely depending on the city you live in, lifestyle you have and general vibe that you give off, but I can’t help but assume that most people have at least one or two items in their closets that are sure to get a response.
Lately, it’s my Miu Miu studded loafers, as pictured at left. No matter where I’m going or what I’m doing, someone always asks about them, which is a pleasant surprise since I bought them assuming that half the people I encountered would think I was crazy. Last summer, it was my bright yellow Botkier Trigger Bag that made everyone ask where they could find one of their own. I’ve always been that person who strangers love to talk to (I must have one of those faces or something), but a good handbag or piece of jewelry can turn anyone into That Girl. So what in your wardrobe turns others’ heads and compels them to break all sorts of social norms by randomly approaching you? Let us know in the comments.
