Nothing makes a statement quite like a bag and shoe — nail both of these and pretty much everything else in an outfit can be given a pass. The August 2016 issue of Vogue in particular takes up the former of these two in a handbag story photographed by Patrick Demarchelier and styled by Tabitha Simmons featuring amongst others Grace Hartzel and Grace Elizabeth. Nailing it, the former (pictured) is shown clutching a fringed velvet pouch by Ralph Lauren. Grace Elizabeth for her part shows an eye for details holding a Sicily bag replete with metallic threading by Dolce & Gabbana. No further statements are necessary, so long as these Graces grace the page.
