The Little Black Bag (Feat. Gold)

Just when you thought a black bag was just a black bag – the small detailings on a plain bag can make it extra special. It’s natural to be drawn to a more neutral or dark wardrobe during winter, but we all know how boring that can get after awhile. The solution? Have accents of gold! Yes, I’m aware that my obsession with gold might be getting out of hand but I love it in any form. In my opinion a pop of gold on black clothes and accessories finishes off the look. It adds a certain richness to it which is easy dress up or down.

My everyday
This literally goes with me everywhere. Surprisingly enough this bag has been extremely durable for the price I had paid. I brought this with me to Spain and it was the most perfect traveling companion for me. It’s secure, stylish, and holds everything I need in a day. I loved this bag so much that I ended up getting the same one but in brown! Definitely a wonderful steal.

Hands free
As cute as a handbag can be; sometimes throwing a backpack on just feels way better. I’ll take this around when I know i’ll be having a bit of an adventure where I can’t have any bag in my way. Besides the playful gold studs, the pink lining inside adds some more pazazz. [Deena & Ozzy Stud Stripe Backpack – sold out 🙁 ] 

Into the night
Let alone the fact that a black clutch is a staple every woman should have in their closet, I was drawn to its gold detailing (again with the gold, I’m that crazy gold lady!). Since my clutch collection is still in progress; this is my go-to for night outs, parties, or whenever I’m feeling more ladylike (hehe). Helps to have a detachable strap as well for times when I want to carry around a little less. [From dailylook – sold out…another cute alternative!]

Do you have a little black bag?
