[Window Shopping] Unexpected Finds
Last Friday I was working from home, so I got to watch all of the Today Show (I know, it's the perks in life). Anyway, there was a segment with Stacy London about the best jeans for Fall and how to work all the different styles (trouser, skinny, colored, etc). The first outfit was a 'work' look with a trouser jean, silk top, and chanel-esque tweed jacket. Of course, each of the items were under $100, including the adorable handbag. Which was from Aldo of all places.
(third from lef, of course you can't see the bag!)
The bag looked luxe and definitely designer inspired, so I ran to the website to check it out... and I was pleasantly surprised by all the great bags they have. I'm usually a 'one bag' girl meaning I buy a handbag and use
the shit out of it it for months on end until I find a new replacement. Since I use the same bag day in and day out, I'm not opposed to spending a few hundred dollars or so on them... however, I'd more than willing to drop $50 (or less) on one of these options!
(reminds me of my Minkoff MAM)
All of them are hitting the current trends of lady-like structured styles, classic colors, color blocking details, and hardware accessories like buckles, turn locks, and zippers. I would love to see the quality in person, but for a affordable option, call me a fan.
What kind of 'bag girl' are you? Hoard lots of expensive designer bags? Change up affordable and trendy options like underwear? Use the same bag for years? Make your husband carry all your schtuff? Spill it!
