Two bags, too late.

Blackbird wanted to see our bags (purses, pocketbooks, totes, just pick your favorite term) for her Friday show and tell.

What is it with me that I can never get around to doing show and tell Friday on Friday? I'm posting late, and I'm recycling pictures from previous posts. How lame is that? It's lucky for me that she's decided to switch the day. So pick a day, organized people. I will abstain from the voting. And I guarantee whatever day you pick, I'll find a way to post two days late.

Anyway, my bag. Well ... I have a bunch. The one to your left is my latest acquisition, and I carry it about 80 percent of the time. It's the Coach Holiday 2005 tote. I saw someone carrying it and became obsessed. I have a way of attaining a breathtaking single-mindedness of focus when I. want. something. Needless to say, I managed to score said limited-edition, sold-out-in-stores bag pretty quickly.

(So why can't I manage to take and upload a picture on time, hmmm?)

The other bag I carry quite a bit is a Marc Jacobs knock-off from Target. I got the black one, not the white one shown here. I like the outside pockets for my keys and cell phone, and it's big enough to hold my laptop. It also zips shut, so I can stow it under the seat in front of me when I'm traveling without worrying that my wallet or a crucially important lipstick will fall out and roll away.

Although, in the words of a haiku that Basho did not write:

In my youth it was
items used for birth control
that spilled on the floor.


  1. love the chic-ness of the Coach -
    love the cleverness of the Target.

  2. I ADORE that patchwork design from Coach! I bought the wristlet cause I'd rather not spend that much money on a purse (if I'm going to spend that much, I'm going to buy stuff for my camera). I'm visiting today via Michele's where I saw your comment about reading Harry Potter :-)

  3. I love that Coach bag. I've seen a couple of people with it around and about, but I can't bring myself to spend $300-odd on a handbag.

    I think I'm going to give up on the handbag thing and just get a backpack. I can't find one that I like, that looks somewhat stylish and will hold all the crap I need to cart around with me every day. One 14-month old and one child with diabetes = a lot of crap.
