Bulga Essex Bag
Judging from everyone’s reaction to the last time I talked about things I did in my childhood days, I’m guessing that either I was weird or everyone else was very boring. I can’t believe nobody had origami frog competitions in grade school. Oh well, perhaps not everyone had teachers that were as creative as mine. The problem now is that I keep spotting bags that remind me of things I did when I was a kid. Don’t believe me? Take this Bugla Essex Tote for example. Unfortunately, yes, I was one of those kids that tie-dyed her own T-shirts. But this bag doesn’t just remind me of that. Just looking at the picture, I am also reminded of those color changing T-shirts that would turn white when they got hot. Does anyone remember those? And although I thought tie-dying was the bee’s knees back then, you can safely assume that I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing this bag now. Maybe, just maybe, I could see this bag being used as a beach bag. But an everyday handbag? No thank you! Tie-dye might have been cool on T-shirts at one time, but I don’t recall it ever being cool on handbags (with, perhaps, the exception of a really nifty backpack).
The Bugla Essex Tote is available in Tulip (Hot Pink) or Jessi (Tan) tie-dye denim. It measures 15″ x 10.5″ x 6″ and it retails for a shameful $595. If you tie-dye just happens to be your thing, you can pick one of these babies up at shopbop
