STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Get Carried Away

Ladies, it is time to get creative with your accessories. While you may have every satchel, purse, duffel, clutch and hobo handbag under the sun, I am here to inform you that your collection remains incomplete until you head to a vintage shop and purchase a one-of-a-kind carryall.

This Fashionista's carryall plays an integral part in her entire outfit. I find no faults in her beautiful combination of stylish black parachute pants tucked into her brown leather boots topped with a navy pea coat. However, what makes this outfit stand out more than anything else is her model accessory, the cherry red carryall. Its shape alone is what sets it apart from traditional handbags we see today. Normally it’s all about the long shoulder straps and soft texture that permits us ladies to hold the burden of carrying more than necessary on our shoulders. This carryall’s design is formed to fit a few essential items like a wallet, keys, and a book to read during leisure time, and its small handle makes it easy to grasp while carrying any personal items. There are many styles and patterns to choose from, but such shape and style as seen in the photo can be difficult to find so when you see one that catches your eye, don’t hesitate. Buy it! Check out this paisley carryall or this unique vintage carryall with an endearing design.

A carryall holds a similar design to a cosmetic kit or sewing kit and no doubt could be used to fulfill such purposes. However, using a carryall as a purse holds merit because it becomes a unique and sensible accessory that fits well with a classic and distinctive style. The cherry red carryall this Fashionista sports, reminds me of something Carrie Bradshaw would tote around town with a blue summer dress, Manolo heels and a Kentucky Derby hat. Don’t settle for the same old accessories everyone else wears. Get creative, have some fun with your style, and don’t be afraid to get a little carried away!
