Your bag is your ultimate accessory. Whilst it is useful to carry your essential personal items it is also a reflection of you and your attitude to life. Having the right bag balances your outfit. In fact, bags are much like shoes; you can never have too many of them; it is simply imperative to have the right bag to go with your outfit.
