shiny shiny shiny. a big patent bag is a bit much for me ...I'll take a bright clutch though :)

A World in a PAN said...

Those bags look great, but I need compartments in mine. I had one and gave it to a friend very quickly, it took me ages to find things: metro pass when I am in a hurry, cell phone when it's ringing, diary when I need to make an appointment, purse when I need to pay fro the baguette and there is a line .. how do you do?

The Seeker said...

I love bags, but I always end to wear the same for many time, because I just can't be changing all the time. It's not pratical for me.
