In my opinion, investment bags are like a double edged sword. It is the only reason why I can explain the absence of this bag and some others in all my outfit posts. The reason why the black canvas bag and the brown leather saddle bag are the permanent fixtures.
Double edged sword when it comes to practicality
I can fit a whole days worth of things inside (including a MacBook) but my heart skips a beat whenever I think it is in "stained and scratched" danger. It means, more often then not I am left worrying more about the bag and it usually sits on my lap, not very practical in that regard. See what I mean by the double edged sword?
Double edged sword when it comes to 'labels'
I like the subtle details of designer bags. For example, the construction and ingenious creativity, the shape, the use of quality leather and materials and how it carries on the shoulder or arms. I do not carry designer bags just for the sake of it being designer as I hate how people form judgements and opinions. Even though from the most recent post I threw caution to the wind and lived by the motto - who cares, maybe I should apply this line of thinking to this situation? Then this might not be a double edged sword situation.
Hopefully you enjoyed this little "musing", which all came about after breakfast with a friend at this amazing cafe! In a way I enjoy posting outfit posts, what do you think about these occasional "thought" posts?
Also, anyone else have their own double edged sword for investment bags?
