Exotic skins

There’s a new mini bag in town, and it’s even more petite than the ones we’ve come across. Coined the Celly by Glamour US,  the Celly is the perfect accessory for summer activities that don’t require much more than your phone and some cash.

While not the most practical choice for every situation, this current It bag is just big enough to fit a smartphone… and perhaps your ID. But we still love their style, shape and pattern.

Here is the latest line up.

The new trend  being witnessed now is all about redefining and minimizing  what counts as everyday essentials. Mini handbags have taken over as the season’s must-have and we are being forced to make a choice between what’s important and what’s not.

When carrying these tiny handbags, you are forced to stick to the fundamentals: purse, cellphone, lipstick and powder if you are lucky.

Don’t be depressed yet because there is a good side to this minimalist look. It takes the weight of the tote off your shoulder, and it is a fun way to make a major fashion statement.

We would definitely miss lugging around all our daily, (sometimes unnecessary) necessities, but it would be a small price to pay to try out these chic looking trendy mini bags.

Here are a few ways to rock your mini bags.

As appeared on Edition.cnn.com

(CNN)” – My car always smells of goat — I hope it doesn’t smell like goat today.”

Haowa Bello has good reason to have a fragrant car. The Nigerian goat farmer and accessories designer often uses her vehicle to deliver livestock to her customers.

“I want them to see me,” she argues. “I want them to feel they’re getting a personal experience.”

It’s a world away from New York, London and Berlin, but that’s where some of Bello’s goat skin leather ends up — as Madame Coquette bags on boutique shelves in some of the world’s most fashionable cities.

Bello’s business has come a long way. The designer started off with a $200 loan from her sister in the mid-2000s. With the money in her back pocket she set off for a market to track down an artisan to make her first design.

One of Bello's creations.

 

“I had no idea who was going to make the bag. I had no idea what went into [making a] bag,” she explains. She didn’t even have an illustration of what she wanted to make.

“I didn’t know how to draw. I always hated art,” she says, “I felt I wasn’t artistic enough.” But Bello was able to collaborate with skills craftspeople, whom she says, eventually they used to her “crazy ways”.

In 2008, her first bags were sold and a grant of $25,000 from the Nigerian government allowed Bello to acquire livestock and grow her business.

Steering the herd

haowa bello african voices plasta a_00013017

 

For Bello, it’s been a steep learning curve. “A year ago, I wouldn’t even dream of coming near a goat,” she explains. “I hate the way they smell, they are destructive… but I am so, so happy that I have embarked on this journey.”

Today Madame Coquette has produced 600 leather bags and keeps 60 goats, and Bello now dreams of opening her own tannery. This would allow her to control her supply chain further, but Bello insists the tannery will not only serve her business, but also her community. A proud member of the Fulani tribe (“the best herdsmen in the world,” she gushes), a tannery would extend her rich heritage whilst giving it a distinctly contemporary edge.

“I don’t know any woman of these parts who had a dream of setting up a tannery,” she says. “We live in a society where women are accepted to work, women are encouraged to work, but I don’t think we live in a place where women are encouraged to make a difference,” she argues. “I want to make that difference.”

Ladies love buying bags and sometimes end up not using some of the bags they buy. A good handbag is always a ladies delight anytime hence the desire to keep buying them.

A handbag can enhance an outfit and really define your style but it can also break your look if you are using the wrong bag on an outfit.

A handbag can make you look bigger/smaller and even ruin your signature image!

So it’s super important to thoroughly think about what bag styles complement your personal style, to make sure you have a bag-collection that you love!

Here are a few fashion styling tips on what to look for in a bag to help with your fashion style or outfits.What Handbags to Invest in?

If you want to get the most out of your handbags then secure handbags in simple, timeless styles that cover your major daily activities.

A tote and hobo handbag are examples of classic everyday bag styles that you can take from day to evening.

The wardrobe bag essentials are:

Wardrobe essentials bags and purses

  • Structured tote handbag for polishing your look
  • Hobo handbag for everything else
  • Casual messenger bag
  • Laptop bag
  • Chic clutch purse for the weekend cocktails
  • Cross body or messenger bag works for day-out occasions
  • Pretty evening bags in a dark neutral (black) and light neutral (eg. cream) that go with special occasions
  • Leather travel bag in a dark neutral (e.g.black)

The list above is the basic types of bags you should have but you can always go wild on other trendier ones

Versatility is Chic

A tip is to secure at least one quality bag for each of your daily activities (work, casual evenings, traveling, parties, etc.) in neutral, versatile colors such as black, brown, dark navy blue, and white/cream.

This ensures that you can match them with the rest of your wardrobe without having to think twice about if the colors and style clash with the outfit.

You might want to put the bulk of your closet budget in basic, quality handbags, to make sure they will endure your lifestyle. So if you’re an office worker, invest in durable tote bags that you love and can see yourself using for many years to come.

Also before buying a handbag, you might want to ask yourself these questions:

  • Do I need it as an accessory or for practical use?
  • How often will I be using the bag?
  • How practical is it? (for your lifestyle, activity you’ll be carrying it to, will it accommodate all of your important belongings?)
  • Can I wear it with the rest of my outfits?
  • Does it Suit Your Style?

One of the most important things when it comes to selecting fashion handbags is matching them to your personal style

Here are a couple of examples:

For example if you have a Sporty style – pick a simple messenger, satchel or canvas handbag.

White sporty satchel womens handbag 
If you are more into a Bohemian style – it should be larger, made of original material like real leather or suede. Perhaps a bit slouchy and vintagey. 
dark brown hobo womens handbag 
If you’re Classy you might want to choose medium-sized leather tote bag in neutral. Preferably tailored in design.

The point here is that selecting a handbag that suits your personal style is important in defining your image! Look for details that are you but are versatile to wear with the rest of your closet.
