I’m not much of a “bag” girl. I’ve never been able to find a purse that’s practical for the life of a stylist: one that works for shopping with a client, lunch meetings, dinner with my fiancé, and dancing afterwards! Even my beloved Celine tote doesn’t make the cut- it’s definitely too bulky to dance with.
Finally after years of pining for the perfect purse, my search is over: Bandolier, my newest style secret, is everything I’ve been looking for. A cross-body strap attached to an amped-up iPhone case, Bandolier is a hands-free carry-all that has just enough room for the essentials. After clicking my phone into place, I can turn my Bandolier over to find a few slots for my CC, ID, and cash. What more does a girl need?
As if being hands-free and fuss-free (never have to dig in an oversized bag looking for my phone again!) wasn’t enough, Bandoliers are actually super cute! I couldn’t stop at just one, so in addition to the simple black strap I’m rocking here, I also grabbed a classic gold chain strap (very Chanel), and this snakeskin strap is next on my list.
I love how this piece, which is essentially a tech gadget, still looks elegant and fashion-forward. It’s a smart choice for pretty much any occasion- a music festival, a night at the club, a sporting event, and the list goes on and on.
Yesterday my Bandolier got me through a day of meetings, a stop at the office, and dinner out without a hitch. A white top from stylehaus, my favorite skinny jeans (also available at stylehaus in a bunch of different colors), and my fave Rag & Bone booties were the perfect backdrop!
