Metallics can be a little bit tricky; in their worst incarnations, the finish can look cheap and tacky, but when a metallic is good, it’s something you can wear no matter the season or time …
One of the things I really love about working on PurseBlog Savvy is that I get a chance to look at bags that are actually reasonably priced. In addition to this, I come across brands that I’m not familiar with. We are all familiar with brands like Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton or Chanel, but until I had the chance to work on this site, I had never heard of a brand like IRO. Now that I have, I am pretty happy. Granted, I don’t own one of these bags but if I were to, this one might be an option. (more…)
It was always about this time during the fall semester that I would start getting irritated with my school bag. Class had been in for six weeks, the first round of tests and papers were done, and things inside my tote bag were looking a mess. I always just carried my laptop and whatever paperback books I needed for my lit classes, so when tests and papers were graded and returned, my bag turned into a nest of crumpled assignments with a stray, empty bottle of Diet Coke here and there, and I would start thinking that it was time for a new bag.
It wasn’t really time for a new bag, it was just time for me to start carrying a folder to put stuff in and throwing away my empty drink bottle at the end of class, but that never occurred to me until after I graduated.
