It’s quite an oxymoron… see-through bags (this trend observed here, here, and here).  Isn’t a handbag suppose to carry and conceal our valuables?  The ability for others to see what’s inside might welcome curious eyes and sticky fingers.  This internal debate heightened my interest towards transparent bags.  To thoroughly investigate this concept, I came face to face with this pyramid studs clear cross body bag.  At first glance, I struggled to understand it and immediately put it back in the box for a return.  It was actually Mystery Man who suggested that I should give this little bag a second chance.  I took her out again and started adding my card holder, lip balm, and other accessories inside.  And that’s when a light bulb went off.  A transparent bag gives freedom to be creative from the inside.  I felt like I was decorating a little home for my accessories, and as a result, the dash of colors gave more personality to my see-through bag.  After putting all of the components inside, I happily showed MM.

MM: It’s like a work of art!
Me (grinning from side to side): Really?! 
David: Is that an Easter egg?
Me: It’s a lip balm  -_-

I’m very blessed to be surrounded by incredibly supportive and funny people!  After a round of laughter, I thought about what MM said and gained a deeper appreciation for this type of design.
