There’s always a reason to celebrate! Just like it’s always time for a drink or a cat video on YouTube – instead of working, of course. But the thing with party bags is that you never have a nice one, when you actually have a party to go to!
THAT’S WHERE HEY PRETTY COMES IN. Party season just has started and I want you to make a statement with your party handbag. Now you don’t have to hook up with your boss to get attention – all the attention will go to your new clutch, minaudière or crossbody bag.
These bags all have something in common: They want to go out with you!

Okay, this one may be a bit tame for you – but it’s really easy to combine! And now let’s take it a step further:

The fact that Claudia gave me this sweet little bag for my birthday doesn’t have anything to do with my pick at all:

A «minaudière» is a small, usually hard-shelled box, which can be a deposit for your part gear. I think this one is rather cool:

Ok, we have to take a closer look here: I kinda like this bag, it’s a bit rock’n’roll meets nerd. Or do you only see a portable speaker?
