If you haven’t noticed small handbags are kinda, sorta, my thing. First of all let me explain, they’re tiny and really cute. But mainly it’s because they also help me look taller in photos than most medium to large handbags (quite the illusion). Sounds crazy, I know, but I feel like large handbags drown me in photos. Sigh, the struggles of being 5’1.
With the holiday festivities rolling in and closing out the year, finding the perfect transitional handbag in your closet can be difficult. For most, you either have an everyday handbag or a evening bag, or one for special occasions. Typically there’s no in between. So when I came across this adorable beaded bucket handbag from Zara, I had to run over here and write a post for you! Did I mention it’s affordable, stylish, simple and very classic. The beaded detail is stunning, giving me major 1920s vibes. At first I thought to myself, what can I pair this with? Do I already have something in my closet like this? And will I actually wear it?!?
I think we can all agree that this is something we all eventually contemplate and wonder. Because as we all know, after you rip off the price tag, it’s yours! Glad, to say I haven’t stopped wearing it, pairing it with my formal black holiday gown, to my basic jeans and knitted top from Mango, coat from Capulet and heels from Forever XXI. My looks came together so effortlessly.
Are you in on the beaded handbag trend?
