As I got older, I soon appreciated that accessories were a good investment as whether I could wear them or not did not correlate with my fluctuating weight often linked to multiple pregnancies. Though saying that, my foot did get bigger after having kids and I did have to put a lot of my handbags in storage as they could not handle the plethora of items one needs when exiting the house with babies. Regardless I still ensured that my diaper bag was on trend and did complement the stroller, even with minimal sleep and dried curdled milk on my clothes I made a point to match accessories.
My expansive collection of handbags and my love of shoes has meant that having a perfect match for each a near impossible mission. Instead I have curated a collection of both that complement each other and reflect me. There is no bigger complement when you step out and have someone say, that is so you. Almost 35 years after that photo was taken, I am taking my mothers words and making them my own by infusing a little bit of myself in every piece that I wear and ensuring that whilst the shoes and handbags may not exactly match they do complement each other perfectly and for me this is the perfect match.Keeping with this philosophy my first collection of RGV avarcas was designed to showcase not only my own personality but to also allow the wearer to have theirs shine through, it’s all about your own sense of style and personal journey. This is a fun collection so go ahead and have fun with it, whether you are head to toe in animal print or a solid color with a touch of sparkle, if you can own it, you can wear it. Go out there and shine, shine, shine !!
Below is an interpretation of my "perfect match" always remember when you are getting ready that "fashion fades, only style remains the same" - Coco Chanel.
Love RGV xx
