It’s really quite rare for me to wear a lot of black since I love colours, patterns and things that glitter! But once in a while, even I have to admit that black is probably the most universally flattering colour for most people, and the fast track to look instantly chic and smart.
And before I’m off, I have to blab a bit about my new found love for this bag from Parisian brand Carven. When I saw it on display at Fenwick, Bond Street, I fell completely in love. The quality and feel to this bag is just beautiful with its minimal/normcore design; decent size and capacity contrary to most of the “IT” bags at the moment. And the design of the buckle is so simple yet smart. Everything about this bag shouts understated style and practicality. For me, I knew I was in love when I had to have something knowing there was nothing trendy about it. And that was exactly the case with this lovely Carven Bag.
