I'm liking this one.... kate spade, $395. Clean, simple, nice color.
Metscan (whose lovely blog is a treat...do go check it out!) mentioned on the original look-for-less post comments that I'm "beating around the bush" in looking for cheaper bags to scratch the classic Chanel itch. And that's true to some degree. But I'm also not ready to drop that kind of money on a bag at the moment, and want to leave myself open to something more affordable. Though perhaps only the Chanel will ultimately do, the hunt is half the fun and I always enjoy sharing the pretty things I find with all of you.
More thoughts on style, satisfaction vs. substitutes, and shall ever the twain meet coming up next week...
