Azure blue: Alexander Wang Prisma Tote and Marion Mini

Azure blue is my all-time favorite color and I believe that I’m not alone: there are countless azure lovers. One of them impressed me most–do you remember Andy Sachs? The girl in the The Devil Wears Prada who wore a cerulean sweater? Her boss, the “devil” told us many things about this color, like:”that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs. ”

Well, I can guess how many dollars behind azure when I saw this bag on the street (picture from Glamour magazine):

The bright color instantly brightens up the whole outfit. The rhodium metal plates around the corners add a perfect amount of dazzle and edginess. The leather panels math her classic striped tee and give the look a clean line and structure feel.

Besides the eye-catching design, it’s also very functional and versatile: the color goes with almost everything and the size is big enough for you to throw everything in.

If you need a small version, here is the Prisma Tote’s younger sister: Marion Mini, also in stylish and versatile Azure blue. Get it here.

Or you can wear something more interesting: like orange pieces or patterned garments as the girl above did:

I'm Helen. In the huge fashion world, what attracts me the most is the way different people accessorize themselves. Our daily outfit choices are not just about the pieces we pick, they relate to something lurking deeply within our hearts: how we feel about ourselves, how we express ourselves to the rest of the world, what kind of people do we want to be and what kind of life do we want to live. Following my passion for fashion, I immerse myself in this bizarre world and try my best to share what I learned with you!
