Once upon a time I fell in love with a bag. This bag originally caught my eye on the Chictopia site then again on a blog. The 2 are related but I’m too lazy to go search around to find either so bare with me.
I thought this Coach bag was effin awesome. Sadly I did not have the 300+ dollars to get it. [story of my life] So I would check out etsy and thrift shops for something similar. Then one sunny day on my lunch break (it could have been raining, I have no windows anywhere near my desk at work) I happened to search “satchel” on etsy and found a lovely little vintage 70s coach satchel that was VERY similar to the one I was hopelessly lusting over.
I thought about it for about half an hour and then I couldn’t take the chance that someone else would scoop up this bag so I bought it.
Now I originally felt good about my purchase, up until 2 minutes ago when PAIGE informed me that she found one for 3$ at a garage sale.
BUT that’s OKAY!!! I only spent 40$ on mine and it’s PERFECT. It will be perfect for shopping on Saturday. I’m so happy with my purchase and I would like to thank the cow who died for this bag :(. I’m sorry cow, maybe one day I’ll be a better person and give up leather? At least this purse is enjoying a long life and it will only leave me when it’s pried out of my cold dead hands, only then will someone else be able to enjoy it.
I’m in a rambling mood but I have to stop myself, I should really be working on my project to get it ready to print when I get back next week. I’m giddy (gitty?) for NY.
