Her Satchels

When I watch Homeland, one thing strikes me every single time: Carrie Mathison's sling bags, usually black, at times tan, often a bit bigger than usual sling bags. Though her clothes, in every season, seem to have been carefully designed corresponding to the flavour of the episodes, the bags remain similar. 

I think Carrie's sling bags give her a personality, the way she struts around, worrying the least about her bag makes me see her differently. This is in sharp contrast to Allison Carr's bags which are fancier (and of course expensive).

Sling bags are popular everywhere. Perfect for an outing where you actually do not need much to carry. Cotton sling bags have a college like feeling, while leather ones look more sophisticated. Embroidered sling bags are loved by the bohemians from hearts among us.

By the way, did you know that sling bags were originally used for delivering letters?

 You have a great weekend. Please follow me on GFC and Facebook and Instagram.

  5. Those kind of bags are my favorites - perfect for going out, not even clubbing or whatsoever, but, for example, for grabbing a cup of coffee, or macaroons with girlfriends. Because you don't need a lot of stuff to carry with you on these small events.
    Again I am loving your outfit - it's simple, but I do loove the casual feeling about it! <3
