So like a month ago a friend, bf & I went to Barneys in nyc, and we shopped but i kept coming back to this bag. Originally I thought I'd want a twiggy, but I ended up liking the box better. And they had a bunch of colors, but the the lilac is just very me. The bag just looked cute and really fit me, and my friend and bf were such enablers telling me how much they liked it and how I should definitely get it...but still, it was hard for me to spend that much! Previously I think my most expensive was like $800 with tax, but the thing is, I've always managed to get my parents or bf to pay! But this was all me. The SA was really sweet and she was like if you totally get nervous, you can always return it in Chicago...but I bought it on a Saturday and on Sunday the tags were off and I was having too much fun carrying it around to even think about returning it! Anyway, I'm really enjoying it Anyway, there have been some questions about the size of the box, so maybe the one of me holding it will help people picture it? I'm like 5'6" and it is lilac.
