#banpaulsboutique was trending on twitter today and my first thought was "why". Dig a little deeper and I found that a considerable sized chunk of the blogging community loathe Paul's Boutique because of the brand association with teenage girls. I was surprised to see that a post by www.britishbeautyblogger.com discussing the Maisie bag received a backlash including a comment that they were the most hated bags in the UK. Harsh, maybe. It got me thinking though. How many of us would boycott a brand we once loved because a market segment we didn't identify with stared using it?
Personally, if I like something, I'll wear it and not care who else might have the same thing because for me, it's a question of style. My handbag can be more than just an extension of my outfit. If you wear it as the focal point, you'll learn there is more than one way to rock a bag.
And while we're on the subject, I thought I'd share the contents of my bag with you...
