I think I may spend half of my life choosing the appropriate handbag for any given occasion, and then I pick the perfect bag from my collection and things normally go downhill from there. Which means one of two things: 1) I have too many handbags and not enough real issues 2) It’s really hard to find a go-to handbag.
The scenario often starts out with me choosing the perfect bag to wear out to dinner. Of course, it’s fabulous and barely fits my cell, lipstick and ID, but I cram them in and go. The next morning I wake up, and decide that a rockstud clutch isn’t going to work at the gym. So I switch. Then after the gym, that monster bag is hardly what I’m wearing to a lunch meeting. And finding a chic bag to take there that will fit my laptop, makeup, winter accessories and wallet (If I haven’t already left it in another purse)? Forget about it!
Kristin Cavallari Using the MZ Wallace Jane Tote for Day and Night
But recently, things changed for me. Strolling around Nordstrom I spotted the MZ Wallacedisplay and decided to try the celebrity favorite and bag industry staple, their Jane Handbag. This bag, also spotted on Kristin Cavallari (you know I’m a sucker for styles worn by of fashionable celebs), is of the MZ Wallace Signature Black Bedford Nylon Collection and has totally stood the test of time. Gold zipper detailing, contrast piping and rouching make it fashionable, without making it so on trend that it will be unwearable in a year or so. The bag is very well constructed with great detailing, and is a good size with enough compartments to fit my, gloves, laptop and my makeup bag with room to spare. It’s a nylon tote with leather detail, making it easy to clean and durable, yet appropriate to transition from lunch to dinner. The MZ Wallace is New York City based and the line definitely has an on-the-go-being-important-no-time-to-switch-handbags feel.
My only complaint? Now I don’t won’t have the “I left my credit card in my other purse” excuse.
MZ Wallace Handbags have also been seen on Kristin Cavallari, Jessica Alba, Mischa Barton, Kristin Chenowyth and more
