Roses rot, chocolate makes you fat, stuffed animals are boring: the only gifts a woman wants are shoes or bags. Today, I’m going to focus on bags. And there’s a good reason, two good reasons actually: first of all, as you probably know, Valentine’s Day is coming, and then the Coccinelle maison, one of the coolest bag producers at the moment, has just launched an unforgettable capsule collection, inspired by the day of lovers. The collection is called Queen of Heart and it was created for confident, charming, strong and positive women, who deep down hide a romantic heart, that loves beautiful things (like a beautiful bag) not because of what they represent but because they can make them happier, cuter and more self-confident.
Whenever men don’t understand our interest for clothes, shoes and accessories and accuse us of being materialistic, I always quote this memorable sentence by Marilyn Monroe: “I don’t want to make money, I just want to be wonderful.” In order to be wonderful during the month of love and fashion, I’m starting with a mini-bag: triangle-shaped lock that, when open, looks like a heart. Red, optimistic, funny, pop. Great both as a shoulder bag or in your hands. Great for a dinner on Valentine’s day. Great for everyday life and for informal occasions when you still want to look wonderful. Another nice version is the milk and mint one. Moreover, if you’d like, you could match it with an exquisite heart-shaped charm (in pink or milk and mint too), that you can both hang to your bag or use as a key-ring. Finally, to top it off, here’s the Queen of Hearts’ wallet, perfect to contain the strict necessary and nothing more, just like the actual Queen of Heart would.
