In order to help make ends meet, my dad took on a second job as an auto mechanic at some point during my childhood. I was pretty young back then, but there is one memory that stands out in my mind for some reason. I remember sitting outside the shop where my dad worked and looking down at the puddles in the driveway. I could see my reflection, along with eerie-looking rainbows slowly moving and changing shape whenever the wind caused a ripple in the puddle. This memory is what popped into my mind when I saw the J.J. Winters Single Zip Bag in Iris #1. At first glance, this bag looks like the rainbows I saw in that oil-contaminated rain water. But wait… why then, is the color called “Iris #1″? It turns out that upon closer inspection, those blobs of color are actually supposed to be a pixelated floral pattern.
Well… that certainly was unexpected. Especially since I typically think of J.J. Winters bags as being suede (and fringed!). But I suppose the J.J. Winters Single Zip Bag in Iris #1 does have its charm. It would probably go well with that skinny black jeans + white T-shirt look. However, I don’t think that this is a bag that I would buy without it hitting the sale section first. After all, it is pretty trendy.
