For Brandon this isn't a standard waist bag in any sense. It is far from the classic shape of a waist bag and in turn, becomes its own original piece. It can be worn day to night because of its versatility. it looks like a chic top handle bag one would normally wear out - just on the waist-. You can easily run around town during the day with this piece on your waist then take the belt loop off and wear it as a cute mini bag during the night. A light blouse, jeans or dressier pants pair with it as a belt bag will elevate any look and if you want to belt it with a dress, that would work just as well. You can also take the belt attachment off and carry it as a top handle if is matches nighttime outfit more.
