What’s the one thing every woman must own?
The same way a guy might covet the latest Apple product, or baseball shirt… Okay okay, all joking and stereotyping aside, there are material things in life that work their way into our everyday lives and become things we are lead to believe we cannot “live without”.
How many times have you heard the phrase “OMG, I have to have that bag!” or “That bag is totally to die for” – the bag itself probably isn’t really that marvelous (unless it’s Celine, Chanel or Givenchy 😉 ), it’s just the ideology associated with it, and the idealized life you are sold.
Designer arm candy was on every arm of women and man on the streets of New York. Not only is it an item used to transport their worldly goods and fend off villainous muggers, but also a statement of expression and individuality. Yet again creating deeper meaning behind that simple, leather tote.
I found myself focusing more on the bags people carried than the outfits they painstakingly put together costing the price of all my possessions, and probably all yours too!

So if you are going to splash out on one item for your wardrobe (despite the materialistic analogy) – my suggestion would be a decent handbag. Not because you want to resemble Victoria Beckham, or lead the life of Blair Waldorf, but simply to fend off those muggers, right?
You could even make your own couture clutch to save on the dosh $$…
So that’s all from me today, but please comment your thoughts below, I would love to hear from you!
