Adrien: Bag Envy.

My love for bags is well documented here, I think, but my mania started a long time ago. My main love is still for Marc Jacobs, though I remember five or six years ago, before I owned a single nice bag, paging through Vogue and stopping dead on a page advertising a brick red Blake. It was the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen in my life and I despaired because there was no way I'd ever be able to afford one.

Turns out, the trick is to wait five years and then find one dirt cheap on Bonanza. Boo ya.

There are a few bags I'm currently wanting real bad:

Satchels by MICHAEL Michael Kors at ShopStyle

Satchels by Michael Kors at ShopStyle

Bags by Mulberry at ShopStyle

Totes by Burberry at ShopStyle

But yeah, I'm poor and not really in the market for another bag, so I just have to enjoy the ones I have: 

Not doing so bad, really. And this is the latest, an $8 coated canvas bag I got at the Gap sale last week:

Perfect for a rainy day.


  1. You look darling today, but I am laughing at all of the stripes in the photos. Heh.

  2. It's a good thing you're carrying that umbrella, because I'm drooling over your handbag collection.

  3. Adorable pics (especially the last one)! Love the way that red pops against the neutrals. RED is the best.

    BTW, you know that you're responsible for my Grownup Lady Handbag ... I figured you knew, but wanted to give proper credit here! :-)

    Also, this is the bag I talk about on my post:

    In red. Of course.

  4. Heads up: I'm coming to steal those boots.

  5. Gleemonex, nice work!

    Sabrina, hands off mah boots.

    Marianne, STRIPED 4 EVA.

    Mich, thanks for drooling!
