As you can see I found a straw bag! They sold these at the store I always work at during summer break, so I got it at store discount for just 13 euro. SCORE! I love how the rope handles are adjustable. When there’s little inside I like it slung over my shoulder, but when I’m heavy loaded I prefer to carry it in my elbow like those girls with tiny puppies in their purses. I feel like I totally subconsciously succumbed to this new straw bag trend. I’ve been wanting one for a few weeks and since then I’ve been seeing them pop up everywhere. Does this mean I can’t resist trends and have been seduced into wanting one, or is there some subtle undercurrent in our world that simultaneously creates this need in me, and the trend in society? FASCINATING
I’ve had these shoes since I was 18 which is now almost six years ago. Dayum I’m getting old. Anyway, I couldn’t resist their cute bows, comfy fit, sensual shape and funky/retro leopard print back when I bought them and I still love them to death. They were natural tan leopardprint initially, but I rubbed in some dark blue nailpolish and ended up with this purply color which perfectly matched the leather trimmings. Love em even more now! Lesson: don’t be afraid to do weird things with your clothes. Ok, maybe that is a sucky lesson.
