FRIDAY FEATURE: Prada Bag
There are a few purses that I firmly believe everyone should invest in. One is this outstanding Prada over the shoulder purse. They do tend to be more expensive than other purses, but they are worth the investment. We both once had a boss who used to say "do it nice or do it twice" and this is certainly a bag you will not need a do over for.
I have had the purse for more than a year and it has held up beautifully, even with taking it down town, hauling it to clinic, bringing it to class and taking it out for events and date nights. It has become my go to bag whenever I need an easy piece to wear and keep my hands free.
As a demonstration, I recently wore the cross body bag while out walking Sophie. I paired the piece with simple black skinny jeans, my Aquitalia boots, a Zara knit tank and a gap cardigan. It was the most basic of fall outfits but the bag fits in perfectly with everything.
I have also worn this purse while out for weddings and events. It pairs perfectly with a little black dress for a sophisticated and elegant look or it goes well with a nude jumpsuit for a more easy and breezy look. It is easily the most versatile evening bag you could purchase.
While they may be some resistance to purchasing a bag at this price point (which I totally understand ... it definitely an investment), luxury bags, when made right, are well worth their money. Things like a Prada leather cross body bag will hold up well over time and be timeless. You know you will get your use of out if. Any damage to the bag can likely be repaired by Prada and you would want to repair it rather than purchase an entirely new bag. It is the same principle with nice shoes and clothing. If they are made well, they are worth their weight in gold. This bag is made incredibly well and is a piece I will continue to love in the years to come.
I picked my version up a few years ago, so unfortunately it is no longer in black available BUT there is this fantastic version that is very similar with a more sturdy chain. The gold also stands out more and makes it really pop with any outfit. I also found the version I have in red! Just click on either image to view where to purchase them.
