Read that again.
While it’s hard to believe, it’s late November, and next year is, in fact, looming.
As I do every year when the end is near, I’ve been reflecting on everything that has happened in the last 10+ months. From the fashion and the fun to the not-so-fun and everything in between, what a year it’s been.
We’re not here to get too deep with the end-of-year talk. We’re here to talk about those fashion moments and how this year has impacted your collection, so let’s get into it!
Collection in Roation
A couple of years ago, I made it my goal to get better at shopping my own closet and rotating my bags more, and it was a goal that I not only accomplished but continued to practice. And while last year my collection did a bit of an overhaul, this year I mostly added to my collection (though I do admit I need to downsize a bit by next year!).
My closet saw the addition of the Celine 16, Prada Cleo, JW Anderson Bumper Bag, and most recently the Bottega Veneta Hop. My collection has diversified a bit more in terms of brands and shapes, and while I’ve used each bag at least once this year, I did play favorites with a few!
Prada Cleo Takes the Top Spot
My Bottega Veneta Silver Cassette got a lot of use simply because the metallic acts like a neutral, so it’s very easy to wear, and it’s also functional since it’s a crossbody bag. I also reached for my Saint Laurent Le 5 à 7 a fair amount as well as my Loewe Puzzle Hobo. Though it’s not a landslide by any means, I definitely played favorites with my white Prada Cleo bag.
The bag that got the least wears? My Louis Vuitton x Urs Fischer Pochette Acessoires. Which is not all that shocking, given its delicate nature and how special it is to me.
What about you? Which bag did you show off the most this year? Something new, something old, or something else altogether?
