Juicy Couture Puffed Messenger Bag
Remember the puffy down coats? Those things were actually popular way back when! Every kid had to have one, myself included. And of course now, looking back on it, I can only laugh at how silly everyone looked. At least all that puffiness prevented anyone from poking you with a stick!
So why rehash all of these lovely childhood memories? Well it just so happens that I was wandering around inside my favorite department store today and I was suddenly struck with a very bad case of déjà vu. There, hanging on a rack, was the Juicy Couture Puffed Messenger Bag. This obviously outerwear-inspired messenger bag was part of a Back To School display. But you know what? I really don’t think its all that bad. It’s actually kind of cool looking. (Well, cool looking for a younger person that is. It’s not something I would personally want to buy.) The tough nylon straps and sturdy metal buckle tell me that it would at least be durable enough to withstand some abuse. And it’s a good size too. You could probably fit a laptop in there. Back to school, anyone?
The Juicy Couture Puffed Messenger Bag is available in both rose (pictured) and black. It measures 16″ x 14.5″ x 5″ and has an adjustable strap. Sadly there is no organizational features to this bag, only an interior zippered pocket and cell phone pocket. It retails for $250 at Nordstrom. Also available is the Juicy Couture Puffy Backpack, which also retails for $250.
