Wanted: New Handbag & Your Vote
September 29, 2009
Perhaps you’ll recall my spring handbag dilemma where I wanted but couldn’t choose a yellow handbag. I eventually found a Nine West croc bag on sale for $45 dollars at a local store, and I’ve carried this bag since March. It’s the perfect size. Big enough to stash my wallet, Nikon camera, and the essential sippy cups and kid snacks. Bonus: it has a zebra print satin interior. By now, there’s all sorts of coins, crumbs and ancient receipts crushed in the bottom of my sassy zebra print. Sad, but true – that’s mommyhood for you. But now the yellow is played, and it’s time for a new fall bag.
Sneaky Mr. CG snapped this one a few weeks ago in Napa while we were waiting for lunch at Bouchon. Nice indifferent expression. Thanks hun. It’s also a rare photo of me semi-dolled up. But more importantly, it’s the only shot I have of the bag.
Now that the seasons are changing, and I’m on the hunt for a fall and winter bag. I’m a pretty practical gal when it comes to my daily tote. In my pre-offspring days, I would rotate my daily bags. Ha. That’s funny to me now. There’s just no time for that these days.
I prefer a stylish choice that I can carry all season long. Preferably a hobo. And I’m hyper focused on metallics right now. So I’m calling on all of you friends to give put in your shiny coppery two cents.
Get it? Metallics? Coppery two cents?
