I told you guys before: I’m the bag lady. Some girls have an obsession for shoes; I think I have the same with bags. It’s my favorite thing in my looks—sunglasses and coats come in second and third. Apart from instantly upgrading my looks, bags make my life easier and prettier. Easy because I’m the kind of girl who throws everything in there that I might (or not) need throughout the day or on a trip. The contents of my bag varies from my wallet and phone to cables and hard drives, depending on where I’m going and how long I’m staying. I’m not very organized so bigger bags come in handy. Who knows, you might need three different shades of lipstick in one day, no?
Apart from making my life easier, bags also make my life prettier. I’m trying to get a collection containing most colors of the rainbow, so I can choose whatever size and color works best for what I’m doing and wearing. Today that bag is navy and big. Navy because it works with my entire wardrobe, so I can use it a lot and pair it with my looks day-to-night. On the bigger side, because I can take everything I want to take with me without having to think about size limitations, so easy to take with me as my hand luggage travel bag too. This bag is a classic bag from Giorgio Armani called Le Sac 11, and it comes in three different sizes and many different fabrics and colors. To celebrate the brand’s 40th anniversary, the designer has chosen the number 11 for its symbolic value: the double-digit number is the day of his birth as well as the number of the building that is the historical headquarters of the company, in the secret heart of the Brera district of Milan. I love it when products come with a personal story!
I can take Le Sac 11 with me to my meetings in the morning, office in the afternoon (yes, I have one starting this week!) and the dinner and drinks at night with my friends. It could even fit a change of shoes, so no need to go home in-between. Multi-functional! So, if you’re anything like me (unorganized), or just want to have a pretty, very useable bag, I have some good news for you: Vanity Fair is hosting a sweepstakes and one lucky winner will receive a Le Sac 11.
