In with the Blue

Happy Saturday! I wanted to introduce the new addition to my handbag collection. When I spotted this cobalt blue beauty (found it eBay from a reputable seller) my heart skipped a beat. Handbags have always been my weakness (my weakness for shoes came much later on). Ever since I started working and making my own money, bags were one of the main things I splurged on.  I’ll never forget my first “big” purchase. I was 18 years old and a freshman in college and was making about $6.50 an hour working at the GAP. My friends and I drove to Bloomingdales on 59th and Lex and I got myself the original Kate Spade nylon top zip. After that came a classic Gucci Jackie O and it was all over from there.
So back to this beauty. I decided to sell two of my Balenciaga city bags in order to justify this purchase. If I’m not constantly reaching for a certain bag, especially if it holds no sentimental value, I believe “out with the old, in with the new…” I get tired of things quickly, so that method has always worked for me. I will say, my black jumbo Chanel is still my very fav, so I wanted to go for a bag that was a classic, rather than an “it” bag, yet in a fun bold color. This bag fit that bill perfectly!
Stay tuned for full outfit posts next week. Hope you all have a great weekend!
