AKA a little black bag… Do you have one?
PurseBloggers, listen closely. I have an incredibly important announcement that you will either find painfully obvious or oddly helpful: It's time you add an LBB (aka a little black bag) to your collection.
As the name suggests, the LBB is quite similar to the LBD (little black dress). It's reliable, chic, flattering, and best of all, it never quite goes out of style. (Or at least that's the hope. We all need to refresh our LBDs and LBBs every now and then, though. I digress.).
I've been so focused on building a handbag collection that's practical and timeless, I haven't put much effort into purchasing a matches-with-everything purse that's both black with minimal design (to avoid outfit clashing) as well as small enough for an evening out. While I do have many (maybe too many...) black handbags, they're all large enough to fit a day's worth of stuff, which totally defeats the purpose of the 'L' in LBB.
Of course, what comes to mind initially is a mini or small Chanel Flap Bag. But honestly, if I ever do buy a Chanel (?), it will probably be in a size that I can get more use out of. Keep in mind when I say 'LBB,' I don't necessarily mean a purse reserved for evenings only. I'm more concerned with finding a versatile and trusted black handbag, preferably small, that can seamlessly transition from day to night, supermarket to fancy dinner, and so on and so forth.
So yes, I am now on the hunt for an LBB. Won't you join me? (Or do you already have one/which one do you have? Hey, we're all learning here!)
