08 Oct QUIET MOMENTS & A LITTLE BIT OF SUGAR | BAGINNING.COM REVIEW
Transitioning from warm, sun-drenched summer days to a breezy, pumpkin flavoured autumn, with the perfect addition to a minimalistic capsule wardrobe:
– THE PERFECT CLASSIC TOTE –
designed by the Baginning team, inspired by the downtown-chic, eclectic vibes, created to effortlessly mix and match with each piece of your existing wardrobe, this will become the every-day essential you can’t live without.
I never over think my looks, I’ve always been like that. I like comfort and versatility. Pieces that I can wear year round, a timeless capsule wardrobe mindset, mixing and matching, band tees and luxe, designer dresses with a pair of converse and messy hair.
But I pay a lot of attention to detail, I savour opulence, clean lines and refined textures.
I was thrilled to add this one to my capsule wardrobe. I was looking for the perfect tote bag for such a long time and picky as I am, I had a list of things to check before I commit to a purse.
Vegan leather, no loud logos, clean lines, exquisite details, high quality materials, sturdy straps, inner pocket, extra pouch that would double as a wallet/ wristlet, soft interior, big enough to hide the body, not too big to look suspicious, satisfyingly slouchy but with a firm bottom to hold its shape, monochrome…
I TOLD YOU I WAS PICKY
As soon as I saw this one I was ready to commit.
And I was spoilt for choice. There’s a huge collection of impeccably minimal bags on baginning.com.
And a huge collection of statement pieces in every shape and shade you could possibly wish for. I am now pondering over a fun, sleek purse to add to my non-basic collection. Perhaps something that I could wear with my all-black, or all-white outfits to contrast the uniformity and breathe life into a monochrome ensemble.
I’m wearing a lovely GANNI leopard print, silk shirt dress. I usually stay away from prints but come on, leopard is a neutral and you can’t go wrong with a maxi shirt dress whatever the occasion.
I simply could not resist.
I like going a size up, a slightly oversized dress looks
luxuriously laid back
without looking shapeless. Roll up the sleeves, tie the belt to accentuate your waist, be aware of proportions.
And now you have the perfect bag to go with it…

StephaniePosted at 01:12h, 09 October
This sounds like a great tote bag! One of my rules for any bag is that it has to be big enough to hold my sunglasses case and my kindle. It looks like this one would be enough for both of them and everything else I need!
firstname.lastname@example.orgPosted at 14:05h, 09 October
Same here. If it’s not big enough to hold my camera and laptop, it’s not for me.
ChristaPosted at 03:28h, 09 October
That bag is perfect. I love the shape! I’m also obsessed with your dress. Flawless!
email@example.comPosted at 14:03h, 09 October
Thank you Christa! The shape is amazing, absolutely perfect indeed!
Angela TolsmaPosted at 04:03h, 09 October
OMG I love how you styled these photos! Your bag list sounds so much like mine! I also tend to have the no gold on all my lists as I’m not a fan of the color but that’s about it. This bag is pretty awesome and now I’m curious if they have things that will work for me!
