Let’s just admit it, a girl can never have too many handbags. A bag can provide a pop of color to an (almost) perfect outfit, hold all of your essentials (and not-so essentials…but hey better to be prepared right?), and can really just make a girl feel good. I knew when I opened my new Oliver Bilou “Amy” bag, it would quickly become not just a part of my collection, but one of my favorites.
Before I get into the details, let me tell you about the company. Oliver Bilou is a handbag company that launched in Hong Kong in 2016 and is dedicated to making beautiful bags at great prices, complete with an inspirational twist. Every bag is crafted perfectly and has a unique, uplifting quote sewn on the inside.
Now, let’s get into some specifics on my bag. Oliver Bilou offers five different handbag designs, each sporting a different girl’s name. While each bag is equally tempting, I opted for the “Amy” bag and am so happy with my choice! When I opened the package, the bag was beautifully wrapped in a box with the company’s name on it. It was further bundled up with a cotton bag, also imprinted with the company name, and stirophoam packaging for protection.
When I opened my bag, I couldn’t help but smile from ear to ear. The medium size handbag is made with vegan leather in an elegant royal blue color, complete with trendy suede tassles and zippers on the side. However, just like they always say, beauty on the inside counts just as much as the outside, if not more. The inside of this bag contains a key hook, a few different zipper pockets for convenience, and, most importantly, a motivational quote reading, “Chin up, shoulder’s back angel; you’ve got this in the bag.”
In terms of outfit choice, I opted for a white off-the-shoulder lace shirt with bell sleeves, ripped blue jeans, and a pair of coral heels to compliment the royal blue of the bag. But, the outfit is not what gave me confidence.
Fashion is supposed to make you feel good, proud of who you are and provide a portrayal of how you view yourself to the world. While fashion may seem purely material, the right piece can give you strength, happiness, and can make you hold your head just a little higher. Oliver Bilou’s products have exactly that influence on not just an ensemble, but on the person that’s holding it. So, I really suggest that you pick up an Oliver Bilou bag because for that next blind date, job interview, or important event, if you’re holding that bad you’ll look as radiant as ever on the outside and with just one peek inside that bad at that quote, you’ll feel radiant on the inside, as well!
Until next time,
