I was in Neiman Marcus yesterday, returning my baby Spy bag. I like the Spy in theory, but after carrying it a few times, I realized I prefer shoulder bags. I looked at Balenciaga (I've owned two before--a Caramel City [sold it] and a silver metallic box [still have it]), but didn't see anything that interested me. I looked at Chloe, Ferragamo, Marc Jacobs, nothing hit me like a ton of bricks. Then I turned the corner and entered the Tod's area and I was really struck by this bag. It's black, but in certain lights you can see blue and purple hues (similiar to the Balenciaga ink color). The straps adjust which I like. It's roomy and has that great zipper compartment in front which is perfect for my phone and a pack of gum. The price was right, and so...I got it!! I really really love it so far. Let me know what you think.
