‘She decided to start living the life she imagined.’ Okay, let me start by saying that I never imagined being able to start living my dream. I always had faith that I would, but I never knew it was going to be so soon. God has blessed me in so many ways it’s scary (in an amazing way, of course!) He is so good and promising.

I have never imagined myself getting a Hermes bag so soon. So you can just imagine that it is a big deal for me. I don’t like to compare myself to others because my journey is different to everyone else’s journey. Yes! (lol) This ‘Her Bag’ from Hermès is a newly created bag. I literally got the bag it came in for the first time (It was literally meant to be!). The bag lightened up my eyes because the art of this bag is amazing. It’s a mix of both canvas and leather – so it can be perfect for a causal day, busy day or formal day. You can dress it up or dress, it down. (And you know I love me so versatile items! Lol)

 To me, my handbag means a lot after shoes. Almost every woman can tell that a bag is the most important thing because not only does complete your outfit but it carries almost everything in it. The power of a bag, for a woman is unbelievable.

The bag, can say a lot about what type of person you are. It projects the different styles you like, the brands you like, the colours, it can tell a lot about yourself. I never understood the significance of a bag until, I moved to London. Every woman has specific brand she likes, or size. Every woman’s definition of THE PERFECT BAG differs. Being a personal shopper has taught me, the ‘art of shopping’ and importance of detail in a bag for a woman.  It’s only when you experience shop, see or learn about different bags will make you appreciate the art it.  

 There are a lot of different factors that come with purchasing a handbag. They’re a lot of considerations that you have to keep in mind when you purchase a bag worth thousands of money. I told myself that there are different certain iconic bags that I need to get in my life, so I can one day pass it on to my daughter. I love the tradition that comes with a bag and for me branded bags such as Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Goyard and Hermès are the most significant classic bags for me.  

What is the most classic bag to you? And what considerations do you take when purchasing a bag?
