Megan Thee Stallion Just Brought Back 2004's Favorite Handbag

Three words: Rhinestone mini bags.

If Megan Thee Stallion has taught me anything, it’s that Hot Girl Summer isn’t a single season, it’s a lifestyle that lasts all year. But now that Hot Girl Summer 2022 is literally only weeks away, the Hot Girl Coach is in her truest form, already flooding feeds with Grade-A Hot Girl Content (a term I invented just for her).

Above the streets of New York City, the rapper posed in her hotel room wearing a chocolate brown bodycon dress from Fashion Nova. She paired the neutral mini with pink glitter heels and a matching metallic pink handbag, the focal point of her surprisingly simple look. A play on Balenciaga’s trademark moto style, Megan’s Le Cagole Shoulder Bag is giving me major flashbacks to 2004.

Popping up again in recent years, this accessory was once a staple for the party girls of the early 2000s. The era was all about opulence and over-the-top glitz (both consistant themes within Megan’s closet) and this bag is the perfect representation, with punky silver studs, a shimmering crocodile finish, and a dangling heart-shaped mirror.

The teeny shoulder bag offers just enough room in the bag for your Blackberry — ehem — I mean iPhone, lip gloss, and the nostalgic Y2K-inspired sunglasses of your choice.

Though Megan’s $2k handbag is still shoppable online, I’ve sourced a few copy-cat bags — ya know, just in case.
