I think it’s fair to say that I have somewhat graduated from monogram bags though I’d be lying if I said I was no longer into my older LV logo-a-gogo bags (in fact, I love traveling with them– they’ve become great “comfort” bags). As a whole though, I feel that monogram printed bags are a little too busy and of late, I’d rather go for a “cleaner” look. If I do decide on something “busier”, I’d work with a textured bag, a more streamlined graphic print, or something that had hardware details. Although that’s not to say I don’t make special exceptions.
Actress Amanda Seyfried who is recently celebrating the success of Les Miserables (I was personally not that great a fan of the play when I first saw it though I learned to appreciate it the 2nd time I watched it again. But I thoroughly enjoyed the film version), was seen out and about in a very simple get- up of the fail-safe white tee and jeans and was carrying a monogrammed Dior satchel. While I am personally not a fan of that satchel (it’s so Balenciaga, don’t you think?), I believe Amanda made the whole outfit work very well with the bag.
So I think that’s the rule when it comes to monogram bags– if you plan on using them, make sure you yourself don’t look too busy. Don’t do a floral print dress and carry a monogram bag. Keep it clean, solid, and simple. That’s pretty fail- safe, don’t you think? 🙂
I’m off to Singapore so hopefully you get to see more updates on the blog again! It’s been insane, this jet lag has been keeping me away from my work responsibilities! But I’m attempting to turn this all around on this trip haha 🙂 Have a great day, everyone!!
