Now I haven't really been one for bags aside for using them to carry things ever since I started getting terrible shoulder ache from my shoulder bag and was told my a physio to only ever wear backpacks. And well backpacks, eewww?! However when I'm at school or work I need to carry stuff (food, nearly always food) so I have a very utilitarian troop back pack below which is nice but limits what I can wear, I mean dresses or florals with a backpack? I don't wear dresses much but it's nice to have the option hence why I'm not really a bag person.
However today while browsing teen vogue (I know, I know but it has a total different set of clothes to actual vogue which can be useful sometimes!) I came across an article on the best backpacks. Here are some of the highlights and lowlights of the list.
I'm sure that many of you would think that most of these bags are fine but frankly I can't stand them, the contrasting blocks of colour? The bulky styling? No, just no; if there's one thing that never goes out of fashion it's style (and pearls) and these simply don't have any.
Here are some bags that I'm just not sure about, they have the right whimsical prints or on trend carpet bag fabrics or funky colours or downright awesome patterns but for some reason none of them quite do it for me. What do you guys think?
Finally here are the promised highlights, I love the simple colours and denim but am also digging the lovely prints. My favourite has to be the red and yellow print bag combined with the nude leather it reminds me of Van Gogh's paintings in an intangible way. Anyway, not bad for a teen vogue article huh? And finally here is the much anticipated photo of me meeting Warick Davis the actor at a McDonalds in a service station.
For those of you who haven't seen any photos of me before I'm the tall girl in straight jeans, a saltrock hoody and no makeup. Don't blame me, I'd already been in a car for three hours.
