THE Bag


Today I decided to do a post with MY bag.  This is THE bag, you know the one that you covet forever and finally convince your husband (your parents, your roommate...yourself), that you will never buy another bag again after this one because it is perfect.  You totally justify the fact that the price of said bag is 3 times as much as you would usually spend on a bag because you will never need another one again and it is classic.  This is the last brown bag that you will ever need or buy.  Come on fashionistas you all have this story.  Maybe it is a jacket, skirt, shoes...you know you have done this. How long did it take you to buy another brown bag, perfect pair of black pumps, leather jacket...?  I don't think it took me very long...okay I don't want to talk about it... (am I the only one who did this?)
Well lovlies, this is my perfect brown bag, and it is perfect.  I love it and I thought it might need a little post time with me, maybe a few.  I hate to say it has been living in the top of my closet lately (I am so fickle!!)   I am sure it enjoyed the fresh air of this day.
 The bad thing about the" never will I buy another," argument, is that it only works once (unless it is to yourself and then I bet you could get away with it a few times :)  So use it wisely.  

P.S. This is day 2 of my "no stripes" week.  I have to admit I have already been tempted about 4 times today.  I don't know if I can be strong enough.

  6. Haha - totally know what you mean! I do that with bags too - since they are a more expensive purchase. Bought a J.Crew one in December and am already coveting a new one! Loving those pants - so cute :)

  9. I liked how you worked this outfit. I like the color of the pants. I never use the argument that I'll never have to buy another one and buy an expensive item because I know I'll just get sick of it. I use the opposite argument when I find something for $10 or less and think how I can get away with it because that is so cheap. It's as cheap as going out to lunch. My last purse was $10 at JCPenney and I used that argument. It's a red purse! I didn't plan to wear it everyday but I have gotten lazy and now I've used it daily for 2 months. Oops.

  13. Hahaha, I can totally relate to your 'I'll never buy another...argument'! Your bag really is perfect, beautiful, it definitely warranted that argument! I love your entire outfit here, that sorbet peachy colour of your trousers is beautiful and the pop of colour in the necklace and belt is stunning! Such a gorgeous summer look! Thanks for visiting my blog and for the lovely comment! Thanks for following on pinterest, I'm now also following! Love your boards, such such an interesting and varied range! :-) xxx

  18. I think shoes and handbags are great investment pieces--- maybe a lot more money, but think HOW much you will wear it! Cost per wear ... always makes me feel better :)

  30. I adore your outfit, especially your bag & shoes. I know exactly what you're talking about, maybe not the 'I will never buy a handbag again' thing, but something more like 'I won't buy a handbag anytime soon, I promise'... never works though :)

  31. Love the pop of yellow and the whole ensemble. I guess you can do the cost per wear/use ratio but I'm horrible at that. I get bored fairly easily so I'm always wanting something new.

    I promised to be on a gift ban for three years for one of my handbags. Meaning I didn't get a present for our anniversary, my bday or Xmas for three years. Finally my ban is off this year. The only thing excluded from the ban are DVF wrap dresses Hubby loves them on me so that was a lucky break.
