dear taylor.....

Last week I received the sweetest email from one of your LOVELY readers out there!!!! *WAVING HI!* She wanted some fashion advice, from me! I was so thrilled - I seriously missed my calling, so needless to say I was thrilled!

The email read: Dear Taylor, I need your help with a "fashion" dilemma I'm having. I'm looking to buy a Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac {GREAT CHOICE I LOVE MINE!} (which for me at this point in my life would be an investment). I am tempted to buy a neon bag but I'm not sure how long the neon trend will be around for. Any thoughts? Should I go neon or stick with a traditional brown?


Not an uncommon dilemma if you ask me!! I'm sure we have all been enamored by a 'hot trend', but when you are making an investment, or any type or size,  my opinion is stick with invest in classics - this is the motto I stick to myself. You will always get more use & wear out of them, and they will last you much longer, making it a wiser investment. You worked hard to make that money, reward yourself with something that will stand the test of time! So I whole heartedly recommend going with the brown, and down the line when the fad inevitably fades you won't be left with a hot pink bag that you rarely use. Plus classics can be worn with so much more - pair your brown bag with pops of pinks for an on trend look!

Want that pop of pink Hun, get the brown bag and what about replacing the brown leather tassel with a hot pink leather pull??? You'd have a purse unlike anyone else - totally unique!!! {I NEED one of these pulls like yesterday!!!! - hot pink too!!! :D }

Do you agree? Invest in classics and play with trends within reason? I'd love to help you with all your fashion dilemmas as well - shoot me an email taylor.curlyinthecity@gmail.com - I can help you plan an outfit around a certain item in your closet or help you pull together outfit inspiration for an upcoming event! I'd love to start this as a reoccurring series! 

PS - Happy upcoming weekend Dolls!

  2. I totally agree the classic will last longer when you buying an investment piece and you can always find a cheaper more trendy piece for the neon! I went for a Navy MAC because I thought it would go with lots of outfits and never go out of fashion!

  3. Agreed. Good advice, and nice that you gave an idea on how to incorporate a hit of neon in case you really do want to participate in this trend.

  8. Definitely in agreement. It's so tempting to go with the statement bag, but it's not worth it if you're not sure you'll use it a year from now.

  9. Definitely check out the neon clutches from Aldo! They come in yellow and pink, and are amazing! I couldnt decide which one I wanted, but with a $35.00 price tag, I bought both! No need to invest serious cash in a trend so these bags are perfect! Here's the link. http://www.aldoshoes.com/us/handbags/clutches/product/88784902-hord/67

    Happy shopping ladies! ;)

    1. Great tip! And nice alternative bag - looks pretty similar, especially the style.

  10. Your advice makes perfect sense! However, I personally would rock that neon bag if it was in or not lol...I love me some hot pink! If she is worried about it being too trendy, she could always buy a much less expensive neon pink bag!
