This is a little quickie post because I want to link up to Jill and Adrienne's How I Wear My 'everyday handbag' post. I am picking this little cross-body number here:
Honestly, I prefer (BY A LONG SHOT) my kilim and ikat and ethnic prints to be vintage or handmade, but that often means pricey and out of my reach.
I basically wear it with everything even though it is bright and patterned. I love it because it is cross-body, which means I am hands free to grab my little ones that are always scurrying around or hold my drink (ha!). I do wish it could be just a tad bigger.
As you can see, I feel it really goes well with other bright and busy pieces.
So anyway, that is one of my everyday bags and now, for the best part!!!!!
I was walking by Payless and lo and behold, what did I see???
Bad part? I freakin' prefer this new predominantly orange/red/blue one!!! ughhhhh
But, I can't justify it when my other one is still fine and they are so similar.
It is $16.99 and I only saw one left in the store, but they are available online here.
I feel a little guilty promoting a new retail item from a chain store so I'll make up for it next time by promoting some little biz or second hand store next!
