A bag is one of the essential accessories in any closet. You may love a bg, but did you know the stars guided you there?

The good ole reliable,iconic and sturdy key pouch.The key pouch is a practical accessory that carries coins, cards, folded bills and any small item you can carry. That explains the “pouch” part – the “key” part comes from being about to clip your keys to the “D” ring. You can hang the key pouch on the d-ring inside your Louis Vuitton bags, a bag exterior, another keychain, or on a belt. A key pouch is a great organization tool!
Rodeo Charm wasn’t an immediate fan favorite. However, now it’s a must have for all Hermes lovers. It won the hearts of fans with its adorable shape and puffy texture. It comes in over 80 colors, with So Black, Rubis and Blue Zanzibar being the rarest colors to get your hands on. The charm is made from Milo Lambskin, a soft leather commonly used for gloves and accessories. The leather remains smooth with use, making it perfect for the charm. Did you notice the leather strap hanging on the saddle similar to riding a horse, the strap is long enough to be wrapped around the bag twice to secure it.

My favorite videos to watch on YouTube are “what is in my bag?”.. I always watch and once someone explains the purpose of an item in their bag, I run and put it in my purse. Tape is the one thing I carry around that people think is strange – but the amount of times it has come in handy, I don’t regret that purchase.
