Ok, I’ve stopped being cranky about the blizzards (or as the DC DOT calls it snoverkill) and have added something to my Wish List. I’ve been crushing hard over the Botkier Brooklyn Crossbody Hobo for a while. I’m adding it to my wish list because it’s almost $400 but I consider that okay for a lambskin bag (my Vivienne Tam bag is lambskin and it’s the softest most gorgeous bag I own).
So why do I love this bag? First I love any bag that I think is big enough to carry my life around with me. I’ve got notebooks, folders, makeup cases the size of your arm, cameras, iPods…you know name it and I’m carrying it around with me everyday (perhaps that’s why my back hurts). Second, I love that it’s a crossbody bag so I can sling it across my body and still be so chic. Third, I love the gorgeous cement grey color, although it comes in snakeskin, black, and camel. This color is perfect all year round and will go with whatever I’m wearing. Fourth, it’s called Brooklyn and my husband is from Brooklyn and would probably buy me anything just because it was named Brooklyn. It’s that serious.
I totally need a new wardrobe/accessories budget, right now. Maybe I should take the rest of this snow day to figure out how to make that happen.
