Call it blasphemy to my monogrammed preppy ways, but outside of cosmetic cases or umbrellas, I just don't see the attraction.
Why all of the wonderment and questioning the taste of fellow prepsters? I got my mom a purse for her birthday from Vera. My mom has specific tastes in that she wants something that it light empty, zips shut, has some pockets inside and out, and a strap so that she has hands free. We couldn't be farther from each other in tastes.
I love a purse with durability, hardware, supple leather, design features, and can be flopped closed or sets open (zippers are OK), but won't spill all the contents out if I have to brake a little harder.
|This is what I am toting about town right now. It's a L.A.M.B. by Gwen Stefani from 2005. (The CSU pride was just a bonus. In fact, it was one of the reasons it took me so long to buy it.)|
|This is my current lust for the fall. Coach's Madison Sophia Satchel in black leather. Although I will accept it in the bone color, too.|
Here's what I ended up with:
|Hipster in Java Blue - 11" x 11" x 1¾" with 52" adjustable strap|
|My brain can't even get a rest because the inside is even patterned!|
Thinking I wouldn't have hit a home run on my first go with her birthday present (and that I can't wait to give people gifts!) I gave it to her last night so that if she wanted something different, I had time to get her something by her actual birthday on Sunday. (Yep, she's a Halloweenie Baby) Well, guess what? I did good! Even though I had a tough time residing myself to buying one of these bags, My mom loved it. To quote her, "It's tall enough for a sudoku book and a pencil...and a Diet Pepsi..." She's in lurve with it.
I am still having a tough time with it though. I need a prepster to break it down for me so I understand your inclination, nay, OBSESSION with Ms. Vera.
Drop some knowledge. I'm ready.
