Top 5 Must-Haves in the Bag and Accessory Department

You walk in an event then you think, “OMG – I am wearing the exact dress as her, from Forever 21!” What’s a sure fire way to save you from that fashion blunder? Simple – accessorize. May it be with a skinny scarf or a cute necklace, accessorizing is a way to make any outfit your own.


A big obsession on anything SMALL

One trend I am loving now is the rise of the micro crossover bags. I used to wonder how to make things fit inside but there are really some days that you’ll need a tiny bag that will only fit your wallet and a lipstick. Here’s my list of my top 5 things you need to have in your closet right now:


  1. Small White Leather Bag | Php650

Gone are the days when we refuse to purchase anything white cos it will easily get dirty. I love investing in white pieces now (shoes, clothes, bags) cos they literally go with anything. Best part of this sling – it’s only Php650!


2. Roomy carry-on with sling | Comic bag

You will need a bag for the busy days with back-to-back meetings. People always ask me how I take all those photos I post on Instagram when in truth – I always carry around an SLR! So I need a non-traditional camera bag to fit all my items and I love a good structured bag like this. It also comes with a sling strap!


3. Classic pair of sunnies

Instead of having a vanity table filled with trendy pairs of sun glasses, why not invest in a few pairs that will never go out of style? I love a good cat-eye frame like this one from Parfois.


4. & 5. Embellished clutch with sling and gold necklace

We will always have dressy nights or cocktails after work when the big bags just don’t fit right in. Invest in a nice embellished clutch for evening gatherings (double points for this one cos it comes with a sling so you can wear it during the day!). Lastly, you will be surprised how a sleek necklace can dress up any outfit – like this gold necklace. Imagine wearing jeans and a t-shirt: Add a long gold necklace plus a pair of classic sunglasses for an insta-chic touch!

Good news – all of these pieces are below Php1500 and available in Parfois branches!

I went ahead and combed through the recent collections of Parfois and you will surely LOVE it. Lots of printed totes mixed with a classic style and lots of textures. The handbags are so nice!
