I don’t know about you but every time I look at a thirty one catalog, either online or a paper catalog, and start seeing all the awesome purses, I think to myself, how on earth am I going to decide which purse is the one I want? Which one of these am I going to choose to carry when I go out? With so many patterns, sizes, colors, and mcm backpack mini shapes I am immediately overwhelmed with ideas.
The first thing to do is ask yourself a couple questions when trying to narrow down a purse are:
• What am I going to use this bag for, my primary bag to use every day?
• Will I use this only when I mcm backpacks replica go out for date night?
• Is this going to be for day trips with the whole family?
• What else needs to go inside it and how many pockets do I need?
• Do I need anything else to help organize the inside?
One thing to keep in mind when trying to decide what bag is best for you is to look at your own body size. Choosing a bag that is huge, if you are a small person, will make you look mcm backpacks cheap smaller. And if you are a bigger lady, you should stick with a bigger, bulky bag, instead of a smaller one that will make you look like a bigger person.
In other words, if you want to look bigger, go with a smaller bag and if you want to look smaller, decide on a bigger bag.
One of my favorite bags is the casual cargo bag. I love the lotsa dots print and the interior pockets make organizing phones, snacks and keys inside is super easy. I also throw in a matching wristlet wallet and am set for the day.
But what about the shape of the bag? Not every bag looks the same either, long, narrow, short, round. A good rule for deciding what shape bag to purchase is to look at your body and do the opposite for your bag. Are you tall and slender? Then a round bag is a good choice for you. Are you shorter in size? Then a longer, more rectangular bag is the way to go.
A great purse for every day and date night is the skirt purse. This bag has so much flexibility that it will truly go with any outfit or occasion. All you do is change the skirt and everything inside stays the same. I have a fun skirt for going out during the day with the kids and when it is time for a night out, I change to the black skirt and have a stylish black bag.
Now that you have some new questions to ask yourself when purse shopping, we hope your experience is a great one! Happy Shopping!
