The Mommy Stylist
Ladies love handbags. Sure, they're functional, but our attachment goes way beyond that. They never make us feel fat, give us blisters or trip us up. They're always there when we need them, and they keep all of our most important items safe and sound. Maybe that's why we can never have enough.
Thanks to various sizes, textures, colors and embellishments, purses can help us change fashion personalities daily. Carry a black leather bag with silver grommets for the "urban" mom look on Monday; Tuesday, go "modern hippie" by throwing a fringed crossbody over your shoulder.
Yes, you can switch out your bag every day. It's easier than you think, and you'll be glad you did. Handbags can make dressing fun — especially when you don't have the time or budget to put together a fabulous outfit.
One final piece of advice: Match the casualness of your outfit to your bag. There's nothing worse than seeing a woman in workout clothes carrying a fancy Nanzy Gonzalez. That's like wearing Louboutins with sweatpants. It just doesn't work.
