I really, really, really love pearls. In fact, my obsession reached a new degree a couple weeks ago, where I impulse bought a $128 embellished denim jacket sprinkled in more than 100 tiny, sparkly, and perfectly white gems (which *hopefully* will not fall off). From that single purchase, one could easily assume I am a proponent of the beaded bag trend. Sadly, I am not and I probably never will be.
As we approach the best time of year (aka summer!), I've noticed a rise in beaded bags, especially in a place like Miami where the weather practically begs for them. There are many bags and styles that downright bewilder me, making me wonder how and why someone would spend X amount of money on them. Yes, beaded bags fall right into that category. They look uncomfortable and give me a weird sensation that all of my belongings will fall out. In my opinion, it's also difficult to find a beaded bag that doesn't look slightly cheap, given that a majority of them are made out of little plastic balls.
Clearly you can see where I'm going with this: Leave it! I know some of you are probably thinking I'm taking the whole thing rather seriously, but this is PurseBlog – and as such, it's a "safe" space for this kind of rant, right?
I have to say though, if someone forced me to wear one, I'd probably go for the Rosantica Joe Tasseled Beaded Belt Bag or the Loeffler Randall Roz Beaded Shoulder Bag. But don't be mistaken: I still think I'd feel weird wearing it the entire time. Don't ask me why. We all have unexplained preferences.
How do you feel? Would you rock a beaded bag or does it give you a similar, uncomfortable feeling? Please tell me I'm not alone!
