I Want this Bag

Last night I was doing a bit of harmless screen-shopping and I came across this Philip Lim 3.1 bag at LaGarconne. The combination of contrasting cream and black leather and bronze-colored snakeskin trim immediately caught my eye and the slouchy, oversized shape stood out amongst all of the dainty clutches and handbags. It’s big enough for the usual must-have purse items plus my camera, shoes, lunch, water bottle, notepad, and scores of other stuff I tend to lug around. Hey, I have a lot of biz-ness, okay?

It’s perfect for me! It’s also waaaaayyyy out of my price range.

Thing is, I haven’t felt this way about an accessory since the infamous unrequited shoe yearning, and y’all know how that turned out:

What should I do? Obviously I’ll have to save up to afford the darn bag, but do you think it’s worth it?

    My personal philosophy is to buy less stuff and make bigger investments. Better to buy one faboo purse than 30 throwaways. But if it is a choice between the electric bill and the purse, I choose electricity. http://www.floridagirlmidwest.blogspot.com

    ok i dont want to be the devil on your shoulder, but you only live once and tomorrow is not promised. At the same time be smart about your purchase as long as it doesnt break you then get it 🙂

      @arsha That’s really cute! I could do without the flower, but it’s probably removable anyway.
