Amy Salinger: Hello and welcome to this next edition of Sass N Style. I am your host Amy Salinger. It's time to make Sass N Style blow up. So tell your friends, tell your family, tell your co-workers, tell anyone who is interested in learning more amazing fashion tips from yours truly, about Sass N Style and of course it had to happen I have entered the Twitter world, username Sass N Style just like the .com for my blog. Basically, we are there on everyday, showing you the best sales, what's out there, what's new, where you can find it, and some of the greatest trends walking the streets of New York City that you can emulate.
But today, we are going to be talking about bags, from the perfect colors, the prefect style, from the everyday to carrying it out at night. I am going to show you all the different types of bags because it really is the cherry on top of the Sunday of your outfit. So let's go look at some bags.
So first up, we have the bag that I use most often because walking the streets of New York City, my office is right in here. Basically, the truth is, the hobo bag is never really going to go out of style, because everybody always need a really big bag. It's a great everyday bag, and the truth is, the other thing that's fun is usually it only have one top. So it's easy to carry. Look mom, no hands, because it just hangs nice and comfortably. It may have a time stuff and actually your chiropractor may come out of ill. But, the truth is, it's perfect and easy to carry on all the time, and like I know, in a lot of episodes, this metallic color is a perfect neutral color. You don't necessarily need it brown or black, doing a metallic, be it sliver, bronze, gold is a great pop to your outfit without competing with your outfit.
I have loved this bag for over four years and I am going to continue loving it this summer. So next up, we have my bright, yellow bag. I love color in bag. That's a type of thing that you walk by and you go, oh, my God, did you see her bag? It's absolutely fabulous.
Now obviously, it's a little bit busy between the lightening strip and the yellow. If I were to tone down the rest of my look, you'd have no problem. Stop asking the question, oh! What am I going to wear it with?
I promise if you have found the ancient pieces, you don't have a problem because you have very simple great basics to work with, and this can be your pop piece. And the truth is great medium size bag as opposed to the big huge hobo bag I just showed you. It won't take you 10-15 minutes to find your lipstick, and show off your sense of fun style while you are at it.
So now we have one of my favorite style bags, the messenger bag. Like I was saying before, I love the hands free bag. I cannot stay on the bags that have the short handle, you carry them on your forearms, it's all hoity-toity. That's fine if it looks cute, but if I can do ten things I want to pick them trying to manage a bag, I am annoyed.
So like I said, the Messenger Bag, it's a type of thing that if you are a mother, if you are on errands all the time, if you are a stylist, and you are constantly carrying bags of clothing, this is a perfect style bag because it literally just hangs on you. Again, no hands.
What I also love about this particular style is check out my friends, I am a rocking cowboy basically. Thank you to Betsey Johnson for designing this. Fringes, it's out, it's in, it's out. I am sorry, it's in as far as I am concerned.
It's again, a standalone piece. It sings on its on. I love to use the word sings, why, because singing is getting everybody's attention, and not what this bag does when I wear it. Now, I know the words, literally just escaped my mouth about not wanting to hold on to something, because you are running on errands, and you need your hand.
When I am out at night carrying a clutch, the only thing I plan I am holding is the martini glass. I love the clutch because it's sophisticated, it's stylish, but it can be fun, funky, savvy depending on the material, and the style that you choose. I always suggest a clutch for going out at night. I really dislike those little miniature bags with the strap. It looks like your bigger bag, and someone who is like I am going to shrink this bag. Woo! It looks inappropriate. It doesn't look great. This is a bag for going out at night and again, it's neutral because it's a white leather. But, the truth is it still has that one little top with the tassel on the bottom.
As I have discussed before, basic does not mean boring. Your pieces should always be able to standalone and be a little bit exciting, and interesting. So this bag is going to follow me around with a maxi dress, a pair of shorts, a sunglass, and even some jeans, going out at night.
So lastly, we have the beautiful, the amazing carry on bag just because you are going away, it's not a purse, doesn't mean you don't have to be fabulous. This is my weekend getaway bag. I love to go home, see my mommy and my daddy. But, the truth is, one of the greatest parts about going home is to go Scower, the TJ Maxx, The Marshalls, because a lot of times those types of stores when they are not in or just around a major city, there is a lot of fabulous treasures in there, because the people don't necessarily know what they are looking for which is to your advantage.
So I found this fabulous bag, that's so own to me, as I was walking through the isle, and I love it as a little bit louder, a little bit funkier. Clearly it's a cowl, so you are not necessarily masking your outfit, carry on, you wouldn't really think about that anyway. So you might as well get something crazy, and over the top that really shows off your personality and this certainly does. And not only is the outside of this bag fantastic, but check out the inside. You know folks it's all about the details, and I love a great inside of a bag as well. People never know where the fabulousness is going to come from. So why not make it not only outside, but the inside as well?
The other thing I really love about this bag is the convenience factor, which is really important. You know I love my mantra of functional fashion, not only it can be an over the shoulder bag depending on how much I have in there, but maybe -- I am going to wrap a messenger bag, well I am at it. I love the double strap on purses, on bag, because it just makes it more realistic for your life, and depending on what you need that day, depends on how you can wear it. And if I had two because I have too much stuff, this arm is available for a purse. So not only am I showing off a fabulous bag on this side, but I have got a fabulous purse on this arm, no matter where I am going.
