Bag Lady in No-Brainer Outfit

Psynopsis Be and D Bag Viktor and Rolf Skirt

Psynopsis Be and D Bag Viktor and Rolf Skirt Marc by Marc Jacobs Shoes
When I was recently asked to do a 'Me and My Bag' post for a website I thought 'Hey, that's easy, I've done this before'. I'm actually not that fussed about bags... Last year I got myself a black, 'knautschy' Be&D and I've been schlepping it around ever since. I'd love to change my bags according to my outfit, but after having thrown some clothes on and managed to plaster my face with some colours I'm racing out of the door and NEVER find the time to actually move things from one bag to the next. That's why I needed a black one – goes with everything. (White would too, but I don’t even want to think about the colour my originally pristine white bag would be after 2 weeks.)

What I found much more difficult was the outfit. I wanted something I might wear any day, any time (something you put on on a Monday morning without much thinking). For me that would normally be a skirt (and I’m not talking
micro mini, but a proper, nearly hitting-the-knee skirt), a blouse/t-shirt and some heels. Gets you through the day, no?

In the end I kept cutting off my head in the pictures. But on some days (nearly) headless will have to do!

Love & Kisses!
Psynopsis What's In Your Bag Collage


skirt: viktor & rolf, shoes: marc by marc jacobs, t-shirt: topshop, sun glasses: exté, bag: be&d. I'm not going to bore you with my bag contents, but I can honestly say that having an iphone has changed my life. To the better? If you think sleeping with your phone next to your pillow to check it several times a night for incoming messages... then, Yes.

My friend, we share a brain because I titled my outfit post this morning "no brainer" as well! :)

You look co cute and chic.

SabinePsynopsis said...

Ha! Do you think there is a communal blogger brain, like we are all in one big matrix? (Gotta find Keanu!)

Oana Roxana said...

Simple and stylish.Like the shoes and also like what's in your bag.
'Hat' a nice day! ;)

Maddy said...

I use to be very consistent with changing my handbags. And now, if I change it once a month, it's a lot. Unfortunately, I've yet to find a "practical" everyday bag. The only black bag I have is a Marc Jacobs one that's super heavy!
But your black number seems like something I could use! Nice outfit too! I wish I could pull off a pencil skirt without worrying about "chub rub" :(

ilovecoolthings said...

i love the outfit. simple and elegant and you are the one that shines through.
as for the contents of your bag... teeheee... it's really interesting how the outfit is so calculated and clean and the inside of your bag has SO MUCH STUFF!!!!
:)

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Love the outfit and love the peak inside your fabulous bag! :)

Hope you're having a great week, honey!

mat said...

haha cutting heads off, i know the feeling. i have no good place to take pictures, or a tripod so i try and fail every time

Audrey Allure said...

Gorgeous bag, and great outfit!

v [ hobovogue ] said...

love that you gave us a peek into your bag contents. i should do a post like that sometime. hahaa it would be interesting to say the least....

great outfit, and i love the bag!

The GUILTY HYENA said...

Very true, I too hardly have the time to quickly empty my contents and move them to the next handbag, although I'm a sucker for handbags.

I also end up finding items I haven't seen for months at the bottom of one of my handbags.

You cant go wrong with that black number =)

Stéphanie said...

You're so beautiful !

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Fabulous outfit!

Tanvi said...

I like your bag!!! :) And your no brainer outfit is quite chic :)

Lannie said...

LOVE this simple outfit. total classic! xoxolannie.

Ferferi said...

I know what you mean but for me the bag and the shoes are too important that I rather be late actually. I'm a materialist when it comes to these things. Love your bag here, looks very much like a Marc Jacobs or an Alexander Wang. Cool you have a Byredo Perfume also! Swedish brand :)

Isabel said...

such a chic look and i love the bag!

Sabine, I just love your blog. You've really become one of my favorite daily reads. I'm dying to know, is that fragrance in that little bottle that says Pulp? Cheers!

SabinePsynopsis said...

Thank you, Shari - yeap, it's Pulp. I've got quite a story with Byredo perfumes.

Poppies and Sunshine said...

I really love this outfit. Reminds me of the kind of outfits I've been putting together lately. Something cool and comfortable and cute! I love your purse. I am all for getting a purse that goes with everything. I used to have a black one, but now I have a leather one that goes with everything. Much easier than changing purses for every outfit!

vint junky said...

I love this bag, infact i want this bag!
I'm last minute annie too, never leave myself enough time to get ready! Wish i looked this pulled together in a last minute dash

drollgirl said...

um, if this is what a bag lady looks like, then SIGN ME UP! i love the look! simple, easy, contemporary, comfortable, chic and stylish! fab!

and i STUPIDLY bought a taupe-colored bag. it is really cute. well it WAS really cute until i started scuffing it up and getting marks and crap all over it. for some reason the leather cleaner pretty much gets rid of all the damage that i have done. whew!

Dancing Branflake said...

You are so BUFF! I love it! And I love your outfit- very good for just about everything.

Style, She Wrote said...

Great post. Interesting contents and fab bag!

Ps. Thanks for the tip about changing the html code to get a better quality.. I haven't tried it yet (have to figure out how to) but thanks and I will! :)

Clare said...

You are so chic. I love that bag and I love your "no brainer" outfit. It is amazing! But when aren't you amazing??

Nubiasnonsense said...

Cool outfit post.. Simple and Chic. I believe we use the same hand creme

S.Elisabeth said...

Perfect no brainer outfit! You'll always look completely chic no matter what you wear!
And I have the same exact philosophy as you when it comes to bags!

MarchMusings said...

I keep cutting off my head in photos as well. One day I'll perfect the art of photography but till then...

dotie said...

Me I'm not a huge fan of bags, that's why I always have the same one..

Johanna Urban said...

I had bags in every (or at least many) colours (still have). But I did find it very difficult to always have to move aorund my things from bag to bag XD, and I always forgot something, very confusing. So I decided to onley have one black and brown bag that I use for everey-day-things :)

sorry, if my english is confusing ;P Hope you understand :)

Love yout black bag, great pictures, and congrats to "me and my bag" :D Have a wonderful day!!!

Kazuko said...

i love "knautschy" bags :) and yours is very pretty because it looks so soft and the golden hardware adds some "lux rock chic". regarding the skirt: even though this one has what some people might call a "decent" length - you still wonder why guys mumble comments like "with that skirt he'll follow..." (see one post before)? think it must be your attitude (in general it's all about the attitude, isn't it?) - but you simply look sexy in your no-brainer outfit (ok, your yoga-trained body also helps, i would say ;) )

Susu Paris Chic said...

I love this outfit. Efficient. Super chic. Just the essentials. Wow!

kirstyb said...

cute outfits xxxx

Cindy Whitehead said...

You are able to fit a lot in your bag - awesome! The bag is beautiful too. (-:

Sherin said...

Your bag is amazing. It is gorgeous. And I do love the skirt you're wearing.

Elle Sees said...

Fierce, love.
And I was doing a what's-in-my-bag post earlier!

Angie Muresan said...

I love the style of that bag. I've been looking for something like that, as I'm always on the lookout for bags, it seems.

Cafe Fashionista said...

Despite the simplicity of your ensemble you look like a million bucks, Sabine; and the contents of your handbag are so fun! :)

Daphne said...

I think no-brainer outfits are OFTEN the best! Love this combo. You look incredible. And is it bad that I wake up and check my phone in the middle of the night, too?
EEK!

Marinka said...

Sabine it's me again! I just wanted to say that I will leave a little something for you to pick up on my blog tomorrow at noon. I chose you (again) cause I really do enjoy your photos of yourself so it would be great fun to see the outcome of this challenge. You never disappoint me with your artsy outfit pics. Let's see now which one is.... (and there I seal my lips until tomorrow!)

emily viveur said...

very simple and classic, i love it! i love the detailing on the bag as well.

Rosie Unknown said...

I love your outfit photos today, they look like something out of a magazine (in a good way).

The Simply Luxurious Life said...

Your images turned out fabulous - I can't stand too posed pictures. You look beautiful and I love the skirt and the design on the waist - lovely. Enjoy your weekend and thanks for stopping by. Hopefully you'll have a long three days to do as you wish. =)

Struggler said...

I thought your 'headless' photos were deliberately arty :)
And your bag contents look a lot less shambolic than mine would be, too!

fhen said...

that's a simple adorable outfit
and i love your bag!

xoxo

Fashion, Art and other fancies said...

That's a very nice bag, Sabine!
I don't usually have many things in my bags; heavy bags cause shoulder and neck pain so I just limit my bag content to lipstick, blusher, keys, mobile telephone, hand creme, and a good book.

My work bag is in the form of a case. Now that is loaded with art magazines and work related stuff.
It is hand held so perfect for training my arms. lol. Happy Weekend, sweetie;-)

Mode Coco said...

Love the outfit and bag:)

Style Odyssey said...

ahh, someone else who doesn't like changing handbags w/ outfits...i have a solution- as you say, a black bag that goes w/ everything. i do change bags for evenings, though.

as for your handbag- i love it! great, simple outfit, too.

Noble Beeyotch said...

Your bag is so cool...love the studs!!

Leah said...

I change bag according to outfit so I find it easier to have a lot of bag organizers inside the bag. Black is my best bet too.

You look so elegant in your simple black and white outfit. xoxo

Dusk said...

I love that bag and damn, I love the wonderful shock of your hair colour with B&W.
