Yesterday after work I had a few minutes to kill while waiting for a ride from Jeff, so I headed over to Holts because I had received an email the day before that they were having an up-to-40% off sale. And as I have had designer bags on my mind lately, I went straight to the handbag section. To my delight I found a few tables of bags on sale, the first one being Prada/Vuitton/Gucci and even at sale prices were all over $1000. Of course, my beloved Balenciaga bags were up on a shelf, far away from the sale table. Dammit. Those things never go on sale. Anyway, as I was heading out to meet Jeff, I spotted a table with far more reasonably priced bags and one in particular caught my eye. It was by Kate Spade, the Bow Bridge Kennedy bag. It's boxy shape, patent leather bow across the front and ostrich embossed tan leather handles (it also comes with a long black patent leather strap not pictured below) makes it a fairly casual but totally cool purse (IMHO). It was about 30% off, so I decided to treat myself to my first designer bag (or first bag costing me more than $80).
