Well, after my husband made two comments (in a three hour period) about my black microfiber hobo, I've decided to buy a new black bag. There's nothing really wrong with the hobo, but according to him, it's not as "cool" as my other bags. He likes the fact that I carry nice bags. The trouble is that I'm not much of a black bag person. I was looking at Marc Jacobs ones, but I don't want to put a lot of money into a bag I know I won't wear that much. After lots of surfing, I found this Donald J. Pliner on the Bloomingdale's website: Is anyone familiar with this brand, or has seen this bag in person? It looks pretty nice, especially for the price - it's on sale for $229.00 dollars. I'm hoping it's long enough to sling over my shoulder because I'd prefer a shoulderbag. I'm not crazy about the way it wings out at the sides, but I can probably live with it. During my search, I found this Antonio Melani bag at Dillard's. I've already got two or three brown handbags and certainly don't need another, but there's something about this one that I really like. Is anyone familiar with the brand? Thanks in advance!
