How a luxury bag can change your outfit
If in matters of clothing, When it comes to clothing, we can allow ourselves a lot of fantasy, more or less happy, even a certain relaxed attitude, but nay for the bag!
1. Let's not forget, the outfit is in the bag!
It is imperative to wear a quality bag, of a famous and recognized brand if we are afraid of a faux pas and, the older we get, the more this rule is imposed and verified.
It wants to be luxurious or not, it is itbag of the year or a great authentic classic, it is original or sober, but we can't ignore the bag.
Try this little test:
Put on your favourite old jeans, the one with the rump of a goddess, one of your simple and beloved shirts, put on your sneakers or your classic ballerinas, all embellished with two or three trendy luxury bracelets. A light make-up will suffice. Order your hair with your fingers, Parisian style.
Now, as if you were going out, put on a seasonal scarf or your favorite sweater rolled around your neck, take a handbag; and put yourself on stage. The mirror is your theater, be a spectator of the one you are facing.

2. Change for a vintage or second hand brand bag.
Then swap this venerable accessory for a big Goyard Saint Louis or a monogrammed Vuitton Speedy; if you don't have one, try it out at your best friend's house, who understands the spirit of Alma or Timeless...
And keep the image you've been taking every time. Well, and no pun intended, there's no picture, is there?

It's easy to find pre-loved itbags that will make all the difference, as long as you know how to do it. Prefer serious sites like iconprincess.com that use independent experts to certify the conformity of their luxury items.
Still not given, in terms of price, will you insist? Just look at the addition made above on items piled up at a loss; add to this that it is probably better that your cupboards are less full of piles of T-shirts and pants at a lower cost, which you will hardly, if ever (that speaks to you?!?) .
