Bright Handbag for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: As a Pop of Color
Quote of the day: “Our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world, as in being able to remake ourselves.” Gandhi
We were gifted these handbags from AmiClubwear (and they are a great deal) but I was not paid for this post.
I’m sure every woman has a handbag, purse, pocketbook or whatever you call it in your possession. In the olden days, the rule was to match your bag to your shoes. Today’s woman does not need to incorporate that thinking into her dressing style. Welcome to the 2000’s!! I am one of those women who doesn’t spend a lot of money or thought on my purse. I have maybe 5 that I rotate through, but I rarely spend more than $50 on the item. To me, I’d rather have a new one next season than invest in one I “should” keep for a lifetime. The three of us all picked colorful purses from AmiClubwear for fun! This series will concentrate on the options of how to make this bright handbag part of your outfit!
50’s Handbag: Maybe it’s not the look I was going for, but truly this is how I roll! Put on a cute outfit (hopefully) and grab my purse to go! It certainly adds some color to the outfit!
60’s Handbag: I love the bright coral bag as a pick-me-up to this black & white ensemble.
