Let's face it your bag holds your life. It needs to work overtime to look cute and stylish and fit your wallet and all the crap you haul from sun up to sun down.
Sometimes (hey it is almost Christmas) its worth a splurge especially when your bag becomes your ATM, your makeup bag, garbage can, first aid kit, medicine cabinet and Lord help us a personal barf bag after a night of too many Mojitos.
Never one to gravitate towards the "it" bag I was skeptical to tote around a bag that would elicit "oohs and ahhs" from people thinking I was all up on the trends BUT this was not any it bag. It was the anti it bag it bag, the "classic" solution to all the Fendi Spy bags and Prada nylon pouchettes of yesteryear that everyone had to have.
Soft but sturdy, boxy but not bulky the Celine Boston bag was the answer to my handbag prayers. Its a bag I'll have forever and its perfect for the 5 magazines, glasses, sunglasses, bottle of water, crumpled receipts and sadly neglected wallet I haul around.
I won't kiss and tell as to which color I settled on. Given the variety of colors and sizes, the phrase "copy cat" need not apply. Which one is your favorite?
