Always by Our Side

I'm sure you guys have noticed that side bags/messenger bags/cross-body's etc. have been really popular, now I'm not sure, but I think it started a couple months back. I was walking around Marshall's and just kept thinking how cute some of the messenger bags and I was really liking the convertible ones.. (I'll show a picture) Then I started seeing them in more and more places and noticed it was the new trend. Now I'm not saying I can tell the future, no one can, but I was really happy that I kind of had a fashion forecasting (?) moment and I was right =)

You have seen this purse from this post here

This is actually a clutch, I used a strap from another purse =)

Close up, have you guys heard of Kathy Van Zeeland? Thats the brand, I don't know the price because it was a birthday gift.

See how a attached it to the zipper? It might look a little weird on this side but I like it =)

This is like my favorite purse! Its edgy, black, really small but holds a lot, and has chains and studs and I love it! I got it from Turkey, from MANGO, and it was $10! I know! I was looking at it, and me and my mom kept closing it but we couldn't figure out how to open them, so we asked the lady, and felt really stupid afterwards =P
It like latches on, and to release it you have to squeeze the two circle studs together and pull off the latch... I know, so obvious right?

With its long strap, (the one from the first picture) its original strap is in the behind it.

This was from Kmart, I don't remember how much it was, I think it was $4 =)

Close up, I love how bright it is.

I know that some people might have looked at the latest designers or already read it somewhere, if it was out there, but I wasn't really into that, and I still don't because I prefer to buy things that I will like, not because its trending or whatever. I also think that even when we had the recent Spring/Summer fashion week (is that what you call it? I have no clue =P) I feel that designers won't know what is going to be trending, because people around the world can change whatever was supposed to be trending into whatever everyone is really liking... But I think that people who really like designer clothes and will wear whatever is designer even if it is ugly make some of the trends for us. Does that make sense? Anyways, sorry that was long...

*I wrote this a while back, but didn't post it- so now it's pretty obvious that these bags are in style =)

  5. The cross-body bags have been trendy for a while now. I've been seeing them everywhere! But I don't know... It's just not for me I guess. I usually carry bags that are too big to be carried as a cross-body. I love that floral one though! It's so cute!

  6. love that blue bag, its awesome
