Curves Around the World: Statement Bag

Hello Lovelies!!!
I hope everyone is doing great! I'm certainly loving the 70 degree weather here in California compared to last week's heat wave that had us in 100 degree weather. I hope everyone is having a great weather where they are. Well it's that time again for another "Curves Around the World" post and this week's theme is "Statement Bag!" So I usually buy bags that are more versatile and I can use all the time because I don't like changing bags. So if you look at most of my bag they are pretty worn out because when I got them I used them all the time. But I do have a few bags that I use for special occasions, so I chose one of my favorites. 
So above is my favorite statement bag that I own. I got it from the Philippines a long time ago from a store called Kultura Filipino which is a part of a store called SM. I fell in love with the bag once I saw it, I loved that it was like the native bags from the Philippines but it was different because the usual native bags I see are usually neutral colors but it had patchwork of different colors which is different. I also loves that it was in a more modern shape of a clutch or can be worn as a bag. I really love that it's such a beautiful bag but it also represents my culture as well. 
Since the bag is so beautiful I wanted an outfit that was simple so that the bag would stand out and shine in its beauty and be a "statement bag!" I bought this beautiful pastel pink dress from Forever 21+ for a wedding I went to awhile and I thought it would be a great dress to wear with the bag. I absolutely love this dress, it's so pretty and it fits me so well, I actually wanted to buy it in the other color but I stopped myself. But yeah I decided to wear a light sweater because it was a little chilly outside. I really love spring weather when it's not too hot and not too cold, it's just perfect.

  6. OMG! Stop it!!! I am loving everything you're wearing these last few posts, and you're positively glowing. And you're wearing pink. And white. And look like a goddess. All of the things I want and love. And I'm in my sweats, eating stew, and watching whale documentaries. lol I need to get it together! Is this dress currently at Forever21+? I think I saw it online. And now I think I need it. In addition to a white lace dress (thanks to your last post). And a floral printed kimono (thanks to your post before that). You are totally inspiring me right now!
