Whether worn for day or night, nothing compliments a cobalt blue bag quite as well as a bright orange lip—words that couldn’t ring truer for this Vince Camuto cross-body bag. And despite typically avoiding all colour in general, there is something about this combination that has me struck. Similar to the way a red lip compliments a little black dress, a vivid orange instantly elevates this little blue bag, making me eager to wear it time and time again. And given its ability to transition from day to night with ease why wouldn’t I?
FINDING THE RIGHT ORANGE
Finding a complimentary orange lip shade for a bag of this boldness can be difficult; you’ll want something that is vibrant, without overpowering the bag. For me, that means wearing an orange lipstick that is heavy on red undertones. Two of my personal favourites are MAC Lipstick in Lady Danger, and the NYX Intense Butter Gloss in Orangesicle. Both shades pair superbly with the vivid cobalt leather featured on this Vince Camuto purse, regardless of whether it’s worn for day or night.
STYLED FOR DAY
Given that during the day I’m typically running errands, I need my hands to be completely free and mobile. I also don’t want to feel weighed down by the bag I’m carrying as I’m typically out for hours on end I love that this Vince Camuto option allows me to use my hands freely, while its compact size keeps it extremely lightweight—even when packed to the brim. Plus, the bag, albeit small, features a handful of compartments, which make it simple to organize and locate my personal items throughout the day.
STYLED FOR NIGHT
For night I simply unclip the cross-body strap, instantly transforming the purse into a clutch, making it ideal for dinner, drinks or a night out on the town. Even as a clutch, the bag features a wrist strap, leaving your hands free to hold a glass of wine … or two—a personal necessity. But without a doubt it’s the rich buttery leather of this Vince Camuto purse that sets it above the rest. It instantly dresses up an otherwise simple slip dress, bringing about an heir of class thanks to its fine craftsmanship, while the bold colour keeps it fun and whimsical.
I never fancied myself a fan of boldly coloured purses, but after my recent stint with the Vince Camuto purse I might have to broaden my horizons. And so should you!
