So I have been on the hunt for a quality leather bag that will get me through the everyday trials and tribulations. There is always a lot to consider when choosing bag. I mean a woman’s bag holds a lot of valuable and useful items. Any women would agree. So it must be big enough to fit everything, but not too big that my stuff ends up getting lost and I spend 10 minutes searching for it. Believe me I have made that mistake more than a few times. It must have compartments to fit my makeup, phone and little bits and pieces, as well as hold larger items like my iPad, wallet, perfume, brush…the list is endless.
With the winter blues setting in well and truly in Australia, I thought I would bring a little pick me up to inspire all you handsome wanderers. Currently I am gladly seeing a lot of pale looks and metallic hues that provide a sweet alternative to the saturation of layered black winter looks. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing like all classic black. A bit of leather, a bit of fur, a structured overcoat etc, but when you look like you are going to a funeral, and yes that funeral is for summer, it is probably time to brighten up your wardrobe. Obviously bright colours are spring orientated (not that bright colours are bad either) so pale looks every now and again, of white, grey and metallics won’t be huge shift in your winter wardrobe.
The armadillo: it can roll up into a ball and has armour-like skin for protection. The durian: itâ€™s big and bumpy and is known for its pungent odour. It’s even earned its place in air travel with Southeast Asian airlines warning passengers theyâ€™ll be booted if found with the offensive smelling delicacy. So what does an armadillo and a durian fruit have to do with anything? Not a lot really, but take the round shape of an armadillo shell and the studded texture of a durian, add some Diane von Furstenberg finesse and nature is transformed into fashion.
