Being able to customize our handbags and accessories is a joy we all too rarely have the opportunity to indulge in- which is why I was super excited to hear about the handbag accessorization* options currently being offered by Parazul Handbags & Accessories.
Parazul allows you to choose from a variety attractive, well made base bags in a good range of shapes and sizes. As an added option (for an additional charge), each bag can be further accessorized from a selection of cute scarves and charms. The bags look great alone (perfect to pair with professional attire), but customizing just makes the bags so much more personal and fun! The Parazul website has a “build-a-bag” feature which allows you to mix and match bags of different styles and colors with the scarves and charms of your choice- a feature that is super helpful in determining the combination most suited to your preferences. Here’s an example of an ocean themed Slim Bag bag I put together:
Lucky me- I had the opportunity to try out one of Parazul’s gorgeous bags! The company had originally offered to send me one of their Scarf bags, but because I prefer slightly smaller handbags they graciously sent over a medium sized Beige Classic Bag ($250) instead AAAAND I get to give away the Scarf bag to one of you- woohoo!
The classic bag is an awesomely versatile bag, but it is especially nice if you like a bag that both lightweight and roomy. Most bags of this size (12.5″L x 7″W x 8″H) seem excessively heavy, but the durable coated canvas body + leather trim details keep the bag super lightweight. The dimensions of bag, especially the width, allow you to completely pack the bag full of all sorts of things while the shape allows you to easily reach in and actually find what you’re looking for. Because the bag is so lightweight, even if you choose to pack the bag full of things, the bag itself won’t weigh you down- just the stuff you put inside.
