Last week I was lucky enough have a beautiful handbag sent to me for an event from Style On Loan. If you are unfamiliar with the process of renting a designer handbag then check out this post I did earlier in the year. The bag I am wearing above is the Chloe ‘Faye’ Bag in the most stunning pink leather and suede.

The first few pictures are from the event I went to with Boutique Street. It was a night time event but not too formal. I knew that I wanted the bag to do the talking and being a typical Melbourne girl, all black is like a uniform for me anyway. Often when I wear all black I mix fabrics and textures to elevate the look a little bit so I went for a silky camisole, wet look black jeans, suede sandals and my leather jacket. As you can see the pink handbag definitely pops against the black background.

Seeing as this beauty was still mine over the weekend, I had to take her out for one more spin. On Sunday my husband and I went on a cheeky little date to lunch and the movies. I didn’t mean to wear a black outfit again, but as I said before – Melbourne girl ;). I wore a casual black shirt dress with some tights and ankle boots and threw an oversized denim jacket over the top. I love how the blue denim and pink look together and how the bag still allows the outfit to be casual but just a bit more sophisticated.

A statement bag doesn’t need to be a designer brand and it also doesn’t have to be reserved for special occasions. Just pair back your outfit a little (no excessive jewellery or fussiness) and let your bag speak as loudly or as quietly as you’d like.

Thanks again to Sunny from Style on Loan for going to such a big effort to get the bag to me in time for the event. If you are ever considering loaning a designer bag, please check out Style on Loan! xx
