Today's Fashionista was looking all kinds of fabulous, from her high-heeled booties (with an epic bow in the back) to her cozy scarf (it was a cold day in Sunny Long Beach), but it was her black purse that made her look extra chic, like a girl in Paris looking for the perfect baguette.
I promote the belief that less it more. I don't do a lot of bangles and earrings, or even necklaces, but when it comes to purses, I think one should always go the extra mile to find one that suits one's personality and outfit. Even though they are handy, big messenger bags will never look as good as small purses like the one this CollegeFashionista from Long Beach is wearing. This black purse with a gold chain is loved by celebrities. You've probably experienced the time when you went into Macy's or Nordstrom and there it was, the black Chanel bag with a gold chain. It's such a classic look. Black bags with a gold chain are timeless like a Chanel suit.
We've got to focus on those timeless staples and simple things that make fashion so wonderful. Even though designers express their creativity on the runway, when you look at their everyday wear, they aren't dressed crazy. We should always have those timeless and simple pieces in our closets to keep us looking less like hot messes and more like Fashionistas.
