Strange how this happens...but a couple of new bags followed me home from my errands today. The first was a Calvin Klein python hobo in black. I haven't a camera but here's a link to the same bag... http://store.nordstrom.com/product/product.asp?styleid=2876587&category=2376788~6002242~2377970~2377975&PrevStyleID=2878017&NextStyleID=2869316 I got mine at Nordstrom Rack for $49.00. The second was the Kempton Harness Tote from Banana Republic... http://www.bananarepublic.com/browse/product.do?cid=5567&pid=374942&mlink=5567,202569&clink=202569 The leather is really nice. In fact, I had forgotten my coupon (10% off...every little bit helps) so ran home and got it while they put the bag aside for me. But..when I returned, the SA had swapped the bag I'd picked off the shelf with a "fresh" one from the back. But I didn't like the texture as much on that one, which resulted in comparing several bags side by side for texture. One SA "got it", the other...not so much. I welcome opinions. I'm itching for a new bag but - as you can see - can't afford to pop into Chanel or Gucci for something in that league. I usually carry a black bag and I carry LOTS of stuff. (I need to stop doing that!!) Thanks in advance! You guys are the best!
