OH Filosophistas, I have so many friends who love shoes and handbags. They love the excitement of sliding their feet into a new pair of heels, and they love the excitement of taking a new purse for a night on the town. I do not share their excitement.
To me a handbag is just that, a bag to lug around my life. Unfortunately, my wallet, lipstick, keys, hand moisturizer do not usually fit in my pockets so I would constantly carry a ratty old tote bag with me.
A friend of mine, tired of my awful tote bag, bought me a Kairos Soho from My Filosophy. At first, I was a little weary. I was in love with the rich, gorgeous, Italian leather, but would the across-the-body style suit me? Would the Soho carry the belongings that I insist on schlepping with me on a day-to-day basis? How would this stunning bag compare to my trusted tote bag?
In order to put my bag to the test, I took the Soho on vacation with me. I am a light traveler, and the Soho was the perfect airport companion. It carried my passport, my wallet, a snack, my novel and the usual plethora of lotions, lip glosses and pens I love need to carry. As the trip went on, I fell more in love with the Soho and its features each day. The across-the-body style was perfect for a hands-free, worry-free way to carry my belongings, and no matter what I put in there, it was easy to carry. Plus, with both compartments zipped up, I had no worries about my belongings falling out or going missing!
Needless to say, my disgusting tote bag has been put in the back of the closet where it belongs, and my Kairos Soho has become my day-to-day bag! I love my new bag (and I know exactly what I’m buying my mom and my sisters for their birthdays)!
