Foley + Corinna Bender Bags
I’m a bit frustrated with myself that I didn’t snag one of the Foley + Corinna Bender bags from the HauteLook sample sale. By the time I logged on (8:00.01) almost all of the bags were on hold (common event @ HL sales), so I snagged the first bag that caught my eye — the City in slate blue pebbled leather. Although one minute after the purchase I was a bit disappointed because I really wanted to get the glossy blue glazed version. Oh well, I can’t complain too much since the prices were so amazingly low at this sale – I’m talking like under $200 for bags that usually carry a retail of double that.
I’m still craving the Bender.
The Bender bag, designed by New York designers Anna Corinna and Dana Foley, who bring their passion for vintage detail to this very modern, functional and spacious everyday bag.
