I am so picky when it comes to buying a bag. It is seriously difficult for me. I can buy clutches no problem, but a daily bag? Within my budget? No way.
I finally got a new bag! And it looks oddly similar to my old favorite… a Betsey Johnson shimmery, champagne, taupe bag with gun-metal grey chain handles and python piping. The fold over top is wavy with a huge piece of crystal embellished gun metal. I love this bag. Its called “Ice Princess”, and is from Betsey’s collection two years ago. There is one other bag in this series, and it is larger.
My lovely new thing I saw on Gilt, by my favorite brands – BCBG. A slouchy bag in the fall seasons star color – camel. Its made of buttery soft leather in the color “parfait”, and has a shimmery lip of bunched champagne colored silk. The close is a thin leather strip you pull shut. There are also two zippered pockets on the base of the purse. BCBG could have been a lot more creative with the hardware, but I can easily change that.
Compare for yourselves! My new is quite a bit larger than my old, but it has so much slouch I’m sure as I break it in things will settle down. 🙂
