ASOS party going on! I just bought myself this blazer and I wanna say that this is one perfect medicine against all my blues. I can’t imagine myself being sad while I’m in this blazer. Why do you need your clothes? To be happy wearing them, riiight???
Every season the designers surprise us with some new, revolutionary ideas. Nevertheless I’ve figuired it out some of the fashion houses either relaunch their classic models, or creating something looking like your grandma carried it back in 1950s. If you hate experiments, you want to actually invest into a bag – this list is just for you.
I tried picking 6 brands which probably follow this motto:
Fashions fade, style is eternal.
—Yves Saint Laurent
Spoiler- YSL bags are also included.
Well then, enjoy these delicious tidbits!
Saying Gucci, meaning 70’s. Just look at these patterns, these shapes. Add some enormous Gucci sunnies and voila! You so own it. I could almost hear Guess Who singing American Woman in the background. And you are probably aware of the fact that the famous Jackie O carried a Gucci bag which was later named after her. Btw where can I buy it? I’ve been craving it.
5. MARK CROSS
Grace Kelly WAS a fashionista. Hands down „Rear Window“ is my favourite movie and it is so iconic, so 50’s. So are the Mark Cross bags! The bag continues to be produced today. Modern classic!
When Grace mentioned Mark Cross I just wanted to rob the MC store. No worries, I bought my handbags with my own money and they are gorgeous!
4. SAINT LAURENT
These purses make me happy. Really. Make me desire to grab this tiny purse, dress me up and go to the opera. Roaring 20s, remember? I think I won’t even mention that your Iphone doesn’t always fit inside. It is meant to be.
Très très chic! Celine finally nailed it. Their bags just stole my heart, I will purchase some of them and probably will even regift them to my grandchildren. I am this sure they will be in style after 30, 50 years. So classic, so simple. Genius and plain design.
This list would be incomplete without mademoiselle Coco. Chanel always create something classic, some box bags, elegant totes. Every season is like back to basics (in a very, very good way!). Please don’t mind some new shapes, like the Boy Bag and so on. You know what I mean, Chanel is a synonym for classiness. You carry it, your mom did and your daughter will. Every age is speaking Chanel.
One and only. I bet you are not surprised.
Grace Kelly again. Again her fantastic sense of style. The Kelly handbag is just my dream (d’oh!). Will never go out of style. N-E-V-E-R. Constance was loved by so many celebrities decades ago and of course it is still the it bag.
Birkin is number one everywhere and everytime, no comments needed. Remember: „It is not a bag, it is Birkin“(c).
Has somebody said „boho“ yet? I fell in love in button-down dresses since Pretty Woman (her famous shopping scene). This one has tiny little buttons. So. Much. 90’s. And shame it is sold out! H&M should bring it back.
Manolo Blahnik is one of my favorite shoe brands. As of this moment I own just 3 pairs of Manolos and I have no intention to stop at this point. Once you start wearing you can’t resist more.
Let’s talk about famous Manolo Blahnik shoes which I spotted in movies/television series.
Sex And The City (2008)
Hands down this is the most famous Manolo pair! Every SATC fan wants them. Classic, glamorous, flawless. „Men, I may not know, but shoes, shoes I know“ (c)
Breaking Dawn Part 1 (2011)
Bridal shoes again! Who said that Bella Swan wasn’t stylish? And who can actually tell me where I can buy them? I’ve just spotted them on theRealReal but shame on me I was too slow! Amazing shoes.
Swan Embellished Satin Pumps
My Best Friend’s Wedding (1997)
Ok I promise this is the last wedding shoe! A billionaire daughter (Cameron Diaz) asks the rival (Julia Roberts) to be her maid of honor. The bride wanted her bridesmaid to wear Manolos. I haven’t found any other picture of these heels, so I had to screenshot. Btw the dress was iconic!
Not sure how they’re called, probably discontinued already. Manolo Blahnik Malena Pumps maybe?
Sex And The City (1998-2004)
My favorite fashionista again! The episode was about a stolen Carrie’s shoe. The whole situation was just awkward af. Thank to theRealReal I’ve purchased a pair (in pink, silver ones are impossible to find). Are they discontinued or what? This must be crazy then, as there are thousands of girls wishing to „walk in single gal’s shoes“ (c) Bring them back in stores!
Sedaraby D’Orsay Pumps
The Devil Wears Prada (2006)
Andy was given a pair of Manolos at Vogue. What a lucky girl! Shame that even google doesn’t know the name of these MB. They just briefly mentioned them, as the whole movie was about Prada and Chanel.
Of course there are much more MBs in movies and it is almost impossible to mention all of them. If you know some more, let me know.
