I often create an outfit around bag. Not only that, I often buy a bag I fell madly in love with and then start thinking if I actually have anything to wear with it...
Anyway, this pink and orange Tous tote is a 'souvenir' from Barcelona. I saw it, fell madly in love with it, and then bought it. Surely I must have tons of clothes I can wear it with... No? Well, I guess that will be the style challenge for this summer, then...
But, then I remembered this Missoni poncho I bought years ago. I've only ever worn it once or twice (and I've also worn it on the blog before) because it's not what you'd call a very practical piece... For starters, the neckline is a bit too wide for my liking. But I still like the poncho: the colours, the pattern... It was an impulse purchase, more suited for the dream life I started creating in my head the moment I saw it than for my actual life (yeah, I have a lot stricter criteria for shopping these days, and only buy clothes that work in real life). But hey, a girl needs a few impractical statement pieces, too... Besides, the poncho looks fabulous with the bag, don't you think?
poncho: Missoni / top: Vila / jeans: Next / bag: Tous /
shoes: Clarks / sunglasses: Michael Kors
Any ideas what to wear with the bag?
Let me know in the comments.
