Weekly baggage

September 15, 2006 at 4:09 am (Weekly Baggage)

I count on FG for Shoesday. I love it and anticipate it all week. But I think it’s lonely. All those lovely shoes, just crying out for a bag. Not a matching bag, mind you (that’s soooo 1963), but a playful bag. Perhaps to provide stylistic balance, perhaps to jazz up a quiet classic, or perhaps just to blow that extra $2,500 you found under the couch cushions. So here is my innaugural ode to bags. My weekly baggage, if you will.

What can I say about Fendi? Lately Karl Lagerfeld’s designs just do it for me. The fat buckles, the classic color combinations, the juxtaposition of buttery leather and bad-girl patent – just divine. It makes me want a pencil skirt, a silk pinstriped blouse, and huge Jackie O shades.

New job, new briefcase? If I can’t rationalize the tres cher card wallet (despite a noticeable lack of non-metal, stylish business card cases in this otherwise over-accessorized world), how will I ever rationalize the briefcase?

Particularly at a university where even the suits don’t wear suits.

    Bag day! How perfect.

    Once again, proving my theory that you and the FG were separated at birth.

    I heart you. Happy to link to this weekly.

    Now that I’ve had a chance to think about this a little, I’d love to publicize this in tomorrow’s Shuesday – are you thinking of making it a regular thursday feature, or will it be more spontaneous? What can we expect? SO excited!

    So flattered am I!

    I’m hoping to make it weekly. I certainly won’t have any trouble coming up with material. Tearing myself away from the sunshine and/or Grey’s Anatomy long enough to post will be the challenge.

    But, um…we still get new shoes tomorrow…right?

  6. fabulous girl said,

    Oh, there will always be new shoes. Yay!

    Mmm… I have such a weakness for bags. You can justify the briefcase because it’s gorgeous. Think of it as a power flirtation weapon.
