It's normal to buy a bag that would match a cute outfit you have ... but .. have you ever found yourself buying specific outfits cuz you know that they would look good with your expensive designer bag?
Sometimes I find myself buying outfits in certain colors that I know would look good with a bag I have that I paid $1000+ for and MUST wear it alot to make up for the $$$ ...
This time ... i am like (ok .. baby blue looks amazing on me in the summer when I am all tanned and shimmering ... so .. i will buy a baby blue balenciaga bag ... so i can buy more baby blue outfits to wear!!) I actually plan my outfits according to my favourite bags ... crazy???? :wacko:

Not crazy at all...lots of people coordinate what they wear with their accessories. I do the opposite....I choose a handbag based on what I am wearing that day.

I'm pretty much the same.

But then again, there are days when you're feeling a little Mary-Kate and just wear whatever together, even if it's less than good together. :lol:

i'm really bad for this...i just grab whatever bag is in rotation, regardless if it goes or not...

but i don't think its that bad since my bags pretty much go with whatever i'm wearing. i wouldn't use my epi st. tropez if i was wearing my lululemon bum wear! hehe

I haven't ever done that unless I'm going out and switch to an evening bag then I always match.

I have bought several outfits to go with shoes that I had to have! I'm much more of a shoe person!

Hello all,

I just need a little input on what colors to choose ,when buying designer purses.

Are the blacks,browns, & taupes really the safest way to go ?

There are so many other vibrant colors to choose from ,but will they really match everyday clothing ?


Thanks in advance !
