I buy one nice bag a year, but I skipped 2009 due to the doom and gloom of the recession. Here are some of the candidates for my new bag this rainy rainy Sunday:
This one is very casual with the rope handle, very modern.
This Balenciaga is super unusual with a wool/tweed weave, but it could get very dirty= disastrous. No thank you. The guy in the bag dept at Barney's tsk tsked at this bag with me.
This one is cute but too typically Asian for me, if that makes sense. CAN I JUST SAY THAT MY BAG IS CHANEL???? It's sleek, it has a gazillion compartments inside, I think 5 dividers total, and is very "of the moment".
This small wallet on a chain is perfect, I think we have a winner! It is not nearly as expensive as a classic flap bag, which I'd rather buy vintage, and it is a nice, feminine, lightweight bag that I can take to weddings, going out, dates (HALLO OUT THERE!) etc.
Actual purchases of the day with my barney's gift card: an Alexander Wang sweatshirt tank dress that I can wear everyday. It's super soft, fitted and reminiscent of the best hoodies of my youth.
I bought Dita Condor aviators which are much like the ones I already have, but white and very lightweight with paper thin arms. They're gorgeous, and I am a creature of habit.
The every day bag I am now eying... sigh. It's Alexander Wang's Brenda Zip chain bag. His stuff is so right on the money these days.
