I’ve been out and about a lot lately – living the freelancer life haha – running lots of errands, quick meetings, picking up products, emailing from my phone in between meetings, writing writing writing, heading out to events, taking photos, dashing home to edit photos.
My go-to outfit right now:
1) Black midi skirt
2) T-shirt or shirt, tucked in or knotted
3) Pointy flats
4) A big, slouchy bag to fit everything!
Yup I recently picked out this Alexander Wang Roxy Hobo Bag (courtesy of Shopbop) because I was looking for a big bag that I could use as an “everyday bag”, which still looked “dressy” and a bit different.
I loooove it!
I really like that I can wear the bag in different ways – 1) folded up like a little teardrop, 2) using the short strap as a shoulder bag tucked in close under my armpit, or 3) with the long cross-body strap like a regular satchel bag.
The edge of silver balls is such a cool detail. As is the silver link chain, which threads onto the handles in different ways. It’s very Alexander Wang! And it’s very integrated into the design and shape of the bag.
The pebbled leather is just amazing: soft and slouchy, yet tough and doesn’t scuff or scratch easily.
It’s tough looking, but it has some soft feminine curves too.
It’s super fun to use, as I get a lot of compliments and lots of conversations with random strangers!
Do you have an Alexander Wang bag? How good are his bags?!
Some of the other bags I considered was this Tory Burch Classic Tote – very practical, but a bit boring.
And this Alexander Wang Rockie Duffle Bag, which is a style that has been around for a number of years. I think it’s cool, but a bit casual for how like my bags. Plus I imagine that if I wore it as a cross body bag, it would sit on my hip, protrude out and scrape on all kinds of things… doors, fences, bushes, walls… and I’d trash the leather.
I have been eyeing this Meli Melo Bucket Bag for a while now, which looks cool and different, but not very big.
Then this Ulla Johnson Wicker Bag, again suuuuuper cute, super different, looks like a nashi pear, but not very big at all. And probably not very practical haha!
Anyway, that’s enough of my bag wishlist!
Enjoy your week!
