Who says big handbags are out of style? Certainly not me! Nowadays women (myself included) love to carry their entire lives in their bags and there’s nothing wrong with that. If you’re a woman on the go who likes to squeeze in a workout or two during the week, the Nicole Lee “Bowling” bag in red is a chic way of carrying your workout clothes and shoes along with your pocketbook and whatever else. For Pete’s sake, the word “chic” is on the bag itself!
This bag is, of course, very casual, but also fun and trendy. Whether you use it to carry around your workout gear or as a mini travel bag, you’re sure to catch some envious stares.
Leave it to Nicole Lee. The handbag company always has its finger on fashion’s pulse, knowing exactly what details and silhouettes are de rigeur. With this particular bag, you get chains and studs, popular now for the past couple seasons. But you also get the slashed effect that is everywhere now (there’s a whole style page on slashes and cut-outs in our Summer issue).
And at this price, you have no excuse not to get it. Treat yourself!
Sometimes my fashion brain just doesn’t work in the morning. Watercolor florals? Sorbet hues paired with nudes? Stripes a la nautical or punk rocker? It’s a bit much before my a.m. cuppa joe.
It’s days like that that I appreciate a really good handbag. One that instantly upgrades whatever I’m wearing, one that says “I’ve got style” on days when I feel less than stylish.
With Nicole Lee’s “Shelly” pin-print satchel, you’ve got several looks in one. One says sporty brights. Another says punk-chic rocker. Still another says you understand the importance of clashing materials, prints and colors for spring.
It’s nice to let your handbag do the talking sometimes, isn’t it?
