#HERSSENTIALS: The Prada Bag

What exactly is a closet without a Prada? Nada! A month ago when I went to Milan, my dad and I were looking for cute bags. Upon stumbling Prada’s window display, my eyes were crushing hard for that black and white crossover bag. While I also had my sights on a straw bag, I concluded that the first bag I saw looked like a better investment since it was something that I could see myself wear more frequently. The day after, it was sealed: I got the bag I wanted!

From there on, I’ve been wearing it non-stop whether it be for brunch, shopping or dinner. Let’s say that the obsession got wayyyyy too real. While crossbody bags are mainly seen as a weekend thing, you can actually squeeze it in on the weekdays!

This situation usually calls for a super chill outfit regardless of who you’re seeing. If you’re seeing that cutie from Tinder or your boss, a little professionalism in the looks department goes a long way. In place of the denim mini, wear a structured bag with a statement miniskirt. It’s cute AND polished as fuck. For that little glam girl in you, toss on a rhinestone/faux Swarovski crystal necklace and you’re good to go! Shoe-wise, pick a flat if you’re gonna walk around later or go for a daring heel with some socks if you’re gonna hail a Lyft.

Whoever thought of planning concerts on a Thursday night is a genius. The day before Friday is the new Saturday. A couple of weeks ago, I went to an R5 concert at Gramercy Theatre, where they premiered their new EP New Addictions. It was my first time seeing them and by chance, I was just strutting around in a glitter tee and pink wig. I honestly never thought that I’d plan my outfit to match their new cover, where Rydel wears a pink wig. But if you’re going to a concert that isn’t R5, always throw on a leather jacket! It carries the Prada purse into something that’s casual enough to wear at sundown. Since most concert venues I go involve a LOTTA walking, I always wanna make sure that I remain hands-free if I’m taping the show on my Insta Stories. Thank Miuccia Prada for making my life easier.

Dreamer. Seeker. Achiever. Is there any other word that can't describe me? Born in Jakarta, raised in Singapore and educated in Los Angeles, I was bound to trot around the globe one #ootd at a time. While fashion has been a top interest, I also enjoy pop culture, beauty and traveling. Whether it be a fashion show, DIY-ing the latest catwalk-inspired accessory or going to a music festival, there is nothing that I can ever miss out in life. Hence, #LivinLaVariNaDah is born from the desire to not ever FOMO again!
