Must Have – Messenger Bag

Must Have – Messenger Bag: You know how much we love an accessory that is as practical as it is chic.  That is why we are pausing for a moment to consider all that is brilliant about the messenger bag.  Great for travelling to other countries as your valuables remain safely out of reach, and the different compartments ensure the contents of your bag always remain in order. This is one piece of arm candy that is wise to invest in!  A messenger bag looks fantastic in classic black, however we also adore a bold color or pattern for an instant statement maker. We’ve been on the lookout for our favorite versions of this practical and stylish accessory. Tell us, which color messenger would you most like to have in your bag collection?

Must Have: Aviators

A pair of aviator sunglasses are an essential wardrobe item for any fashionista… especially as the temperature continues to rise.  They can take your look from drab to cool and casual just by slipping them on.   We like the classic black lens for its versatility, but we love the mirrored colored variety for injecting a playful edge, with a certain nod to the 80’s.  Know one thing – you can’t go wrong whichever style you choose…
