I am an anti-label whore. I love a great looking, murdered out, all black bag that has no indicator where you got it or how much you paid for it. But let me tell you sisters, they ain't easy to come by.
When looking for a inexpensive bag that doesn't give away it's value, good fabrication is KEY. Real leathers, dense fabrics, and sturdy hardware will always appear the highest quality.
Feel free to admire my curation (years long in the making), and then get your butt out there and start hunting!
Faux Fur clutch, Topshop. Sunglasses, Quay.
Vintage is almost always label-less goodness. Even with top tier designers, the only branding will usually be inside. So classy, them olden days.
And! A solid black murdered-out bag can always be a blank canvas for patches, pins and keychains galore. Who doesn't love a opportunity to (over) accessorize??
I never ever thought I'd say this about Coach....
But give me all of it every piece in every color hurry give it to me now hurry.
The best thing about a jumpsuit is that its a whole outfit in one piece. The worst thing about a jumpsuit is that its a whole outfit in one piece. All the sudden your new fave item can find itself in the can't-wear-again-anytime-soon club with your super cute party dress you wore to a heavily facebook albumed wedding. Fuck, man.
But, you are a strong independent woman! And you do NOT have to be a victim of one note jumpsuiting. If your heart starts to race with the threat of jumpsuit boredom, don't panic- just remember the three "L"s: Laid Back; Layered; Luxe."
Laid back: How can you chill yer 'suit, brah? Denim? T-shirt? Sneaks? Joint? (j/k. paranoia does NOT equal "chill.")
Layered: What does it look like with something over it? Under it? Both?
Luxe: How can you dress it up? A heel? Some sparklz? Accessory game on fleek bae LOL tho?

I snagged these boots at a garage sale in upstate New York for $2 a couple of summers ago. The beanie I got from California Surplus (my fave LA Army/Navy store), and I added a pom-pom I bought at a trim store in London.
