  1. So my DH carries this hideous little shoulder thingie from REI--and I HATE IT! He REALLY liked my Fidji Hobo from Goyard--so I went down to the store in SF (to see Deborah--she ROCKS!), Anyhoo--I looked around and they didn't really have anything that would work for him--they have a great messenger type bag (I forget what it's called) but, that was WAY to big for him...in depair, I played around for bags for me (the Saigon bag in Navy is TO DIE FOR!) and then I saw the perfect little thing; The Yona Dinner bag (in Red). Technically this is a ladies bag but, I personally, think is uni-sex. The one problem was that the strap wouldn't fit across the chest. So I asked Deborah is she had any other straps I could try. Skeptical, she let me fool around with one of their Luggage Shoulder Straps in the matching color.

    And Presto! A new bag was born! It looked PERFECT! Not too big and would hold all his boy-stuff (his HUGE wallet, and business card holder...not to menion the cellphone!) but, it would fit him comfortably across the shoulder! AWESOME!

    So, I walked into Goyard and customized my sweetie a bag...right there! They Rogelio Ortega (the Boutique Director) was there as well thought the bag was pretty cool (Rogelio tried it on and said he'd recommend it to folks too!--If I said it was okay...since I invented it:supacool: Natch, I said "UH YEAH!"

    So, if you're in SF and in the market, swing by and ask 'em about it!!

    Ha-ha! This just made my whole CHRISTMAS! I had more fun playing in there than he'll ever have with the bag!


    He's here now (in another part of the house) but, maybe tomorrow I can snap a pic and post it!)

  3. That would be HILARIOUS! My hunny said he was feeling sick and might stay home tomorrow but, I was like "NO! Go to work!"

    A close up of the way the luggage strap is "attached". My hunny will love it! I'll ask him if he wants it personalized later.

    I hope you guys all like it!
