so now that i've gotten a new accessory, i'm discovering that it really has a dramatic impact on my outfit/appearance - not in what i choose to put on, but how it transforms the look. t-shirt and jeans without a necklace are a t-shirt and jeans. t-shirt and jeans with the necklace and i'm to the manor born my cacahuete, while a lovely touch that i find absolutely essential and i love it!, does not have this effect. it's a very private luxury. the bolide in a subtle color, would similarly not define my appearance, i think. in a bright color, any bag is eye-catching. so would you say that a kelly or birkin always steals the show? the pics of all the celebs, would they be interesting without that qualifier, that bag? fame aside, i'm just refering to their ensembles. l.lohan would just look like a sloppy, dirty teen i think. and many others would look more... mortal, without their hermes companions (not VB though - they had the technology, and they rebuilt her:borg1. it can be a relief too, to wear the tee and jeans and look fantastic because of one accessory. such an easy way to insta-style. with regards to bags, i think i experiment enough (maybe too much) with clothes that a scene stealing bag would compete too much and it would push me over the top. already with the necklace i see that less is more, which is liberating, but also limiting. any thoughts? do you prefer to let the h bag do the work? do you see it as an ensemble? do you think your own appearance (the impression you make) suffers at all, or is missing something if you remove the bag from the picture?
