It started in 1998…. an edgy television series created a haven for all women following and loving fashion. For 22 minutes every week, fashionistas and stylistas gathered to see what the characters would be wearing, and with it, the dawn of the Status Handbag. Jimmy Choo, Prada, and Loius Vuitton became household names, and we watched carefully to see which handbags the girls would sport.
Years after our love affair with Sex in the City ended, the romance remains as each season, stylistas pursue, covet, and yearn for a sought after Mui Mui bag, Max Mara bag, Michael Kors bag, or a Marc Jacobs bag. There is always a trend…the satchel, the clutch, the cross body. The fact is a great bag is a great bag. The Zac Posen bag, brought out periodically every year always receives high praise and accolades from the handbag conscious public. The Lanvin silk clutch can take the most basic black dress to new places, and the bag is noticed. Trust us.
Although the price of bags have escalated since Carrie sported her first Prada on a date with Big, if bags are taken care of, cleaned, moisturized, and stored properly, they can last for years.
And never, when it comes to bags is it out with the old and in with the new. It is in with the new, and another new, and another new. You get the picture. Love your bags and they will love you back.
Enjoy a new bag this season and you and your friends will be brunching and talking handbags before you know it.
