Most of us wish we had a different purse to match every outfit, but unless you own a handbag store, that isn't likely. Blogging about my Traveling Black Dress gave me an idea—why not change up my purse as well? I have a little black bag that I love because it's simple and chic, petite yet big enough to hold my iPhone. Its simple fabric covering is the perfect canvas to create a new look with each outfit I wear. Adding accessories to one handbag can make a fashion statement for very little cost. You can also use those same accessories for other things too. Win-win!

For this outfit I added two clip-on hair bows to tie the entire look together. Much more interesting than a plain black bag.

Mixing prints—like plaid and leopard—works best when both patterns are the same size and intensity.

I added a lips brooch to match the blouse. So cute! You do need a fabric bag in order use a pin accessory like this, though.

 These two herringbone shoe clips easily clip on to a purse and emphasize the theme of this outfit.
