How to Wear an Old Bag
I've continued to hang onto this tde. Peony Pink Box Bag for years, simply because it has my name monogrammed on it. I mostly kept this little case for show. With new bag trends sprouting up on the runways and the obsession fashion girls have with the oversize Bottega Veneta pouch taking hold, I've kept super structured shapes like this at the back of my closet. What can I say? Sometimes I can't help but be persuaded by the trends. Challenging myself to wear it involved a different approach this time around. Instead of using it as the focal point of my entire look the way I used to, I blended it into an outfit full of pastels, so the effect was about the color scheme, and if you happened to notice my name, then that's a neat, personal little touch.
