Money May Not Buy Happiness, But These Bags Definitely Make a Hard Bargain
Essential Must-Have Bags That Will Give Your Outfits An Instant Glow Up
1. Lucia Ruched Hobo Bag
Sometimes it’s a sleek pair of aviators, and other times it might be a pair of bombshell shoes. But it’s almost magical how a single accessory can be the sole difference between a dull, dry outfit and a classy, jazzed up look, effortlessly. That’s the power of having an accessory that’s been crafted to impress.
The Lucia Ruched Hobo Bag comes with the gorgeous ruched & scrunched top handle which adds an unmistakable flair to the timeless Hobo Bag. And the intricately ruffled soft manmade leather makes for an incredibly simple way to freshen up your wardrobe with practically zero stress.

3. Mae Pochette Shoulder Bag
Comfort and functionality. Two things every handbag needs but something virtually most handbags lack. Mass production & the ever-growing demand for bags might cause plenty of cheap knock-offs to flood the market.
But we’ve made a personal commitment that you’ll never have to stray far away from any Christy Ng’s collection when looking for a bag that actually does its job as a handbag. The Mae Pochette shoulder bag isn’t your average shoulder bag - as it’s crafted from durable vegan leather with a slim silhouette that essentially makes the look even with the simplest of outfits.

Easily detach the adjustable shoulder strap to carry it as a clutch with a shorter strap for when you need to change it up or adjust to different outfits. It’s also impressive in the looks department with an alluring gold chain that comes with the same polished finish as the gold-toned hardware on the bag.
This practical pochette is fitted with a handy internal zip pocket that has more than enough space for your cell phone, wallet, & keys. It also comes with a detachable quick-access pouch to keep all your most important cards and small items secure in place.

That’s what is so great about owning a wardrobe that’s built on basics, at any time of the year - you can easily get in on any trend, weather, or whim of your fancy despite what you own without worrying about missing out.
And one thing the Colby Handbag does not skimp on is its uniqueness with its distinct cube-like frame, the Colby is the bag to have especially as it is also designed in the season's rising looks.
It’s as simple as slinging one on before you head out, whether it’s for work, groceries, or a quick date - this bag will give you a look that makes you seem in the know on the latest fashion trends while still not overcomplicating things thanks to your capsule wardrobe!
