Tod’s Helmut Bag reminds me of someone. Someone who is youthful, exuberant and still views life with excitement and wonder. Even the most mundane of events can be an adventure for this someone. Because life, after all, is about one’s attitude. I was that someone in my 20′s; when a trip down the street to the local street food vendor in Taiwan was an event that I planned for and anticipated.
I was a bubbly, confident and energetic little thing that rarely allowed black clouds in my world. My friends often said my energy was infectious and would always call upon me if they were depressed, knowing I’d lift them from their dark moods. This bag would have been perfect for me back then as I swung through the jungle of life in my stilettos without a care in the world. The soft little pleating detail with stitch fold over top reminds me of the many mini skirts that dominated my wardrobe back then. The easy to open zipper top would be left open, so that I could access my cell and text (yes we had text messaging back in 1997 in Asia!) my friends easily. I would have gotten this bag in multiple colors, as I did not understand back then that next season, there will be more bags to covet and to be had. Tod’s Helmut bag at eLuxury.com
