Nordstrom | March 2006 | a breath of fresh air
While flipping through the Nordstrom catalog a few bags stood out, capturing my attention with either the very low price, lovely or ugly design.
Chinese Laundry | Tote | $38
I actually discovered this bag yesterday when I was browsing around the junior Nordstrom BP area. I was stunned with the remarkably low price, but then I realized the bag was not made of real leather. That was the reason for why I did not purchase it on the spot, although I fully regret it now because after getting this catalog I want it, but it’s sold out online.
Furla | Carmen Shopper | $340
I am two seconds away from walking down to Furla to pick up one of these bags. What I love most about this bag is the simple design yet bold eye-catching color, such as the chamois pictured above. This Furla Carmen is also available in saddle or onyx.
Elliot Lucca | Drawstring Bag | $238
Yesterday I went and returned the ‘Lenore’ oversized shoulder bag by Shelli Segal because the metallic was rubbing off. Trust me I didn’t want to return it, I loved the bag but it wasn’t worth $270. I didn’t even think I was going to return it since I’ve had it for a couple months, but I only used it 4 times and the metallic shouldn’t have rubbed off. Good thing Nordstrom will return anything.
Anyway so when I returned that bag I was going to get this Elliott Lucca bag, but I made the mistake of asking my boyfriend to come shopping with me and some how he convinced me not to get it. I’m sort of glad I didn’t, I realized I have an Etienne Aigner bag that looks just like it minus the braided detailing, that has been sitting in my closet collecting dust.
Cole Haan | Sierra Embroidered Bag | $295
Now it’s time for the last bag on my list – the Cole Haan Sierra Embroidered Carryall. I don’t really know what to say about this one, beside the point that I am not a huge fan of the color scheme. The pattern to me is nothing special, or at least it doesn’t spark my interest. I do somewhat like the overall look of the tote – the Sierra pattern combined with the braided trim and handles on this large, big enough to hold all my stuff, carryall.
