I know in theory that my owning this $500 handbag will not solve any of the problems I may or may not have in my life, but when I held it today, it really felt like it might. Why are handbags so expensive?? Why can’t I be satisfied carrying my belongings in a plastic handled Duane Reade bag? My consumerism scares me.
If you have come to me for reason, you have come to the wrong sister. Behold the anti-plastic Duane Reade option that I covet…
I have been hunting for a sophisticated, cross-body, tan leather purse that fits an iPad and maybe a shoe for some time now. I found perfection in this Marc Jacobs for $428. This bag is my “forever sweater,” if you will. But, I’m sorry, that’s crazy money that I do not have.
I warn you, when you visit in a couple weeks, we are going to Saks to stroke this purse in person.
I have already shown this purse to anyone who will listen, including an aunt on the hubbie side that you need to meet, who is a stylist, and who has a super cool blog about shoes: www.shoes-of.com. And, yes, this is a pic of me in my fav Aerosoles that I wore to your wedding. They are my “walking heels.”
Anywho, I completely refuse to help you with your purse/consumerism plight. All I can do is feed the beast.
P.S. J Crew (AKA J Cute, AKA J Crute) has some nice options for less, but they are either tiny or gargantuan; take your pick.
