Does Your Bag Have To Match Your Shoes ?

Nope. Today I wore black shoes with a bright green bag. Though I did stop by the Saks Off 5th Outlet and look at bright green shoes :nuts: But I normally don't match my bag to my shoes.
I typically wear black shoes. If I'm wearing any other colored shoes, I'd think about it but I don't really ponder over it a lot unless it really clashed right off the bat.
They often will both be black (I live in NYC), but I am learning to also used a purse with color as an accent and then--no! Definitely not shoes to match the color! Too Doris Day for me.

I prefer it but it is absolutley not necessary - I think it's more important that my shoes cooridinate properly with my pants.

I agree. My shoes must match my outfit. I am a little more flexible with my purse. The bags I carry everyday are neutral usually Louis Vuitton, Gucci etc. in basic colors. However, I am leaning towards buying clutch bags in various colors to add to my collection. This is so Girlfriends/Sex in the City.
hehe, i know i posted up a comment about 2-3 weeks ago, but hehehe, today i must of got dressed in the dark or something.... anyway i've got my white ethnies skate shoes on and i wore my black city Balenciaga to work today!!! totally not matching at all - i actually feel like a fashion retard or try hard today!!! hahaha! :weird:
I wouldn't mind having matching bags and shoes... I can't say that I own one pair like that right now...

So does that mean I need to go shopping? Haha
