The cute little pink thing in the upper right hand corner was the unlucky bag to go completely unused, taken away from me moments after purchase. Fear not! I’m hoping to re-obtain her soon enough.

In the mean time I have the bottom two bags coming my way – a Saint Laurent Duffel 6. (Yes, duffel.

Then the Michael Kors Selma was pleasantly on sale for practically a steal so that, too, is headed my way. She will be my new workhorse bag. My lavender Coach tote is YEARS old… and maybe a little worn looking (I didn’t know how to take care of handbags in my youth) so a replacement in the very sturdy leather is en route.

My closet and shoe wardrobes have hit total contentment stage. I have just enough pairs and shades of pants, slacks, jeans, tops, etc. that I don’t really need much else for a while… not until Spring sale season, which is a few months off yet. So I get to focus on handbag investments for a bit.
