Dressing in a hot and humid environment proves to be a difficult challenge, but there’s no reason why one should just stick to shirt, jeans and flats. Too often I see women having the mentality that an expensive, designer ‘It’ bag can rescue their shabby fits. If one’s goal is to be presentable, or to impress, a Prada, Balenciaga or Hermes arm candy will certainly not make up for a cheap, poorly-thought out ensemble of shirt, shorts, and slippers. I strongly feel that if one has the ability to afford expensive handbags, the money should first be put into investing in flattering, stylish clothes and great skincare. Unfortunately handbags are placed first and foremost because it’s a symbol of one’s social class, doesn’t matter that Birkins are a dime in a dozen now, and in the primarily Confucian Asian society, little else matters.
