I know you’ve heard about the healing powers of retail therapy. But what about handbag therapy? I kinda just made that term up, but seriously, it’s the one thing I can always count on to lift my spirits and my style.
I’ve always had an obsession with purses. Carrying a cute little satchel by the top handle does something magical to my soul—it makes me walk taller and puts an extra oomph in each step. So for an instant mood and outfit boost, I’ve been turning to my new Kate Spade spade flower jacquard mini bag. The graphic spade pattern (arranged to look like abstract flowers) is so pretty and playful, it adds energy to my most basic looks—even the random college sweatshirt I toss on to walk to the bodega down the street. And the attachable crossbody strap is perfect for when my grocery list is extra long.
The times I step out are few and far between these days, so I’m taking every opportunity to turn my style staples into a fashion moment. And now that I’m staying close to home, it’s the perfect time to try the tiny bag trend. Oh, and don’t let the size of this bag fool you. It may look small, but it’s actually pretty roomy—on the opposite side of the exterior gold zipper, there are a few divided sections and pouches to keep all my headphones, lipgloss, oversized and sunglasses. There’s even a pocket that I can easily slide my hand sanitizer into: something I’m constantly reaching for.
Now that my fianceé and I have replaced our usual movie theater date night with walks along the Hudson, my bag is the perfect way to amp up my denim cutoffs and white blouse. I know I’ll always look pulled together with this charming, pink-and-green striped crossbody over my shoulders.
