Finally, I have a chance to feature the Phillip Lim Pashli purple bag on my blog. This beautiful bag is a reward to myself for a collaboration I did with Shopbop a couple of months ago. I've been looking for a purple handbag for a long time, yet haven't found one that I really like. Either the color, the shape or the size isn't up to my liking. I shortlisted two bags: the Balenciaga giant city bag and the Givenchy satchel one. While I was thinking of which one should I buy, I saw the Phillip Lim Pashli bag on Shopbop. It comes in a perfect shade of purple, the right size (medium), and the right shape. It's exactly what I wanted.
I used to love pink, but now I tend to go for stronger and more vibrant colors. Purple is one of them. It is such a mature, romantic and passionate color. I usually like pairing it with other complimentary colors to create a color-blocked outfit, but this time I decided to play with textures. The thick sturdy cow leather bag seems to make a perfect match with the delicate lace top. Besides, the white lace top also adds extra romance factor to the entire outfit, and my bag compliments some pops of purple color on my floral skirt.
I was worried if this outfit was too busy to look at, but I was surprised to see how well it turned out in the end.
