Bag # 1: The photo doesn’t do it justice (none of my photos do justice to their subjects). It’s cute and shiny and awesome and RED (my favorite color), and I never get a chance to use it. I can’t possibly carry everything I need, even to an evening party, in something so teensy. Nope, not this one.
Bag # 2: I bought this bag to take to a conference. It’s colorful and has sequins on one side, but it’s totally impractical. Put a few books or a kindle in it, and it becomes a lumpy sack. Also, it doesn’t match anything I own. Sigh. Maybe I could use it for my knitting?
Bag # 3 is a Vera Wang – totally out of my usual price range, but it has a snakeskin pattern (I love animal prints) and was reduced from $ 129 to $ 29, so I snapped it up--and I actually used it for a while. It didn’t match anything I wear, but so what? But all that metal (plus the books and/or Kindle) made it too heavy, so…nope. If anyone wants a partly-used Vera Wang, let me know.
Bag # 4: YES! A Baggallini. It’s understated (the leopard print pattern is very faint), durable and practical, has lots of pockets, and is reasonably priced if you wait for a sale. I love my Baggallini!
Barbara, my MIL loves her Baggallini, too. I've found them very reasonably priced at Marshalls.
Years ago, Andromeda Gibbons lost her belief in both love and magic, and molded herself into a perfect—but perfectly unhappy—lady. Now, when she overhears her haughty fiancé plotting treason, she flees to Lord Fen, the one man she can trust. But taking refuge with Fen proves to mean far more than getting help.
Can Andromeda learn to believe in love, magic,
and the real Andromeda once again?
