Yes, I am going to be a wee bit politically incorrect in this post, so don’t read any more if that might bother you.
I love handbags, and mourned the loss of my gorgeous bag after I was mugged earlier this year – I was more upset about losing the bag (but retaining all of its contents) than I was about getting mugged.
When I got back to Baltimore, I immediately called my friend Andrea and asked her if I could get a handbag from her collection. Of course, she kindly obliged me, and I picked up this bag, but in orange.
As the months rolled into summer, I carried one of Bosom Buddy’s summer straw bags, and then recently changed back to the orange bag. Then Andrea told me that their warehouse where they’ve been for the past few years has gotten too small, and so they’ve rented another space. Rather than move everything, they’re having a sale!
Yes, I know. Completely classless. But funny.
I picked up a few things that ought to tide me over the winter and my upcoming travels. In a few weeks, I have a very, very elegant black tie dinner, and I found the perfect evening bag to take with me.
I am wearing a black cashmere sweater with a mink collar, so the old gold in the bag should be perfect. The skirt I am having made is a copy of a Balenciaga from the early 1960’s in a brown/black moiré silk taffeta.
I hope to see you there!
