I don't know if it is just me or I'm not alone but when I want to buy a new bag I always end up with a black one. I don't know why, maybe because black is so classy and I think I can pair it with everything, but the problem is that I think the same in case of coats, jeans ans shoes. Black is good and other colours are not reable enough. As a result I managed to pile up a very huge closet mostly from black items and I always feel too dark when dressing up. The other day a wild idea appeared the I should start solving this problem with my bags, I mean there are a lot of oppurtunity according to high fashion. If you have the same problem, I offer you some kinds of solution based on fashionable designer items.
Visually fox tail is a very good option but I have some problems with it. Firstly, I feel sorry for foxes. They are so adorable and don't deserve to die just to give us their tail as an accessory. Secondly, all the Louis Vuitton stuff are expensive as f*ck and I can't afford them neither now nor in the near future. A LV fox fur attachable tail charm costs $1,120. So starting up with these issues I found a better solution related to getting an attachable tail - Dolls Kill Freaking Faux-fur-foxtails.
They are faux, so no poor foxes had to die, they are affordable - they're on sale at $24 and they're available in 8 colours. Do we need more?
2, Inspired by the belted Burberry Bags
Well, every black bag looks better with belts but the square shaped ones can be the most easily spiced up by belts put around them. It makes a more sophisticated look and doesn't cost a fortune. You can use any kind of belts you want - colourful, studded, from all kinds of material, wide and narrow, with some patterns on them - it's up to you and your taste.
It seems this post is a lot about Dolls Kill, maybe because of my style, I like balancing between classy and edgy and a classy black bag is too boring for me. I collected two cool belts to use from DK, one with the sign "BON APETIT" and one with crosses on it. But as I said before - it's all up to you.
3, Inspired by the Miu Miu Bow Bags
To be honest I hate bows. I hate them because they are too sweet and charming but I realised that if you don't overuse them, they can be cool, like the Miu Miu bags. They have bows but I don't hate them, they have the balance I seek. When you spice up your bag keep the balance and don't let the bows take over control. It is again up to your style and taste - you can use different kinds of material, sizes, shapes.
I can mention again the Doll Kills webshop (no, they don't sponsor me) to take a look at, as they have some great items with bows that can be used during the bag "upspicing" project.
What do you do to spice up your bags? Any other great ideas from you?
