I ordered 4 bags at a time from YesStyle.ca back in September 2012 and did a post on the casual bags in Part 1 here. I also purchased two bags which were a little more formal.
I put on a dress from 59th Street that I also ordered from YesStyle for $20 CAD to match these bags. I haven’t worn it in public yet because it seems too formal for casual dates yet too casual for formal ones. I’m not sure when and where I can wear this!
I thought this mint green Contrast-Strap Buckled Shoulder Bag by PG Beauty was adorable. I tend to like rectangular-shaped bags and this one was roomy enough to carry anything I wanted. It cost me $29.92 CAD. The buckle and strap details were what really drew me in. The bright pink side trim on the white straps were also very unique, so I thought this was a great statement bag for when I’m wearing neutrals.
I wonder if it is a little childish for me, though? I’m considering giving this bag to my sister. I’m still thinking about it!
I also ordered a black Faux-Leather Belted Satchel by Smoothie for $27.36 CAD. I had been hoping I could use it for school, but when it arrived I realized it was just a little too small to fit 8.5″ by 11″ paper. So I guess I’ll have to just use this one as a handbag – and buy another black bag for papers and folders!
The brown teddy bear keychain is easily detachable. It adds a bit of interest to the plain black, but I’m glad that it’s easily detachable so that it can look more grown-up if I need it to.
All in all, bags from YesStyle are pretty cute and not overly expensive, if you shop smart. I like that there are affordable options so that I can purchase more variety for different occasions!
Now if only I could think of an appropriate occasion for my dress, then I’m set.
