Well, we're two weekends away from the NY lunchathon shopping thingie and I am obsessing over the fade patent bags. Am also obsessing over the new clothes. This is not good. It could be a very expensive brunch So, here's my question -- would you buy one of the fade bags (at about 2200 from what I can see online) or put the $$ into one of the shimmery suity things they're showing for fall? I'm a big believer in jackets -- that was my love before falling into the purse thang. Then again, I'm thinking sales in November may easily offer lots of these items as they're pretty individual and may not sell in a big way. BTW -- great NYTimes review today of the revamped MiuMiu store in SoHo. It sounds like the new Miu sizing may be a little more American -- a 38 might actually really be a 4 this time instead of a tight 2. That could be nice psychologically, no??
