i will be the first to admit...i am NOT a bag girl. not really. shoes? abso-freaking-lutely. but that's just it....SHOES are my thing. my splurge. my love.
i don't get all hopped up on jeans, and i have about 57 times more costume jewelry than the "good" stuff...and bags are no different. right now....i'm carrying a blue hobo-esque bag i got from new york and company for less than $30. and i dig it. buuuttttt.....i've also had it since like april. or march.
and i want a change.
while out shopping last week, i spotted this green beauty in a boutique here in town. and of COURSE, i mentally jotted the brand and style down, to do a little internet research. and i can get it for about $60. which is more than i've spent on the last few bags....BUT the color is gorgeous.
see, i'm an anti black or brown bag girl. cuz if i have a black bag, and i wear brown...i feel weird. same goes for the opposite. but a colored bag negates that....i had bright yellow a few years back, then a big dark pink, then brighter green, then blue...you get the picture.
I NEED COLOR.
and while i do love this big buddha bag....my heart REALLY belongs to another.
bag lust, thy name is hillier.
for serious...i LIVE AND BREATHE for this bag. the shape is gorgeous...and i love the hang-down longer strap...and i've had my eye on this particular style of marc by marc jacobs bag....BUT most of the colors i've seen are neutrals. or this one odd purple-brown color.
but this....this sage, minty green is PERFECTION. i am obsessed. i want to snuggle it and give it a nickname and hire someone to follow me around the mall and hold it when i pee so it's pretty little bottom never sits on a nasty public restroom floor.
BUT this beauty is also almost 7 times more expensive than the BB bag. $398 versus $60 is quite the jump.
and i am SOOOOOO torn what to do. get the big buddha, and use it until i get the hillier?
just get the hillier with half christmas money and half my money?
be responsible and wait until we've got more moolah in the bank??
what would you do with an unquenchable case of bag lust?
